Avengers: Endgame

It's good. It's funny. It's a thoroughly satisfying final installment of "The Avengers" franchise that Joe and Anthony Russo have put together with "Avengers: Endgame." The great challenge here, though, is explaining why... Without the spoilers. And this will be spoiler-free, provided you've already seen "Avengers: Infinity War" (or the extra post-credits scene in "Captain Marvel").

Endgame picks up right where they left off — with Ironman, Thor, Captain America and War Machine surviving the mass extinction caused by the titan Thanos and his gaudy, giant golden gauntlet. As one would expect, some of our heroes have handled it better than others. With Black Widow trying to hold the team together, the effect on Thor draws the most audience reaction (laughs). But explaining the basic plot how they want to re-save the world (as usual) would be a tell. Even our heroes have some well-written wink-and-a-nod fun with the implausibility of it. Yet, it works. Though lengthy at three hours long, most storylines are resolved. Now, some die-hard sci-fi fans might have an issue with how their solution might work in the real world. We must remember this is sci-fi fantasy. And as such, it's a fine film indeed.

Gayle On Film: 'Avengers: Infinity War'

Gayle On Film: 'Avengers: Infinity War'

Avengers: Infinity War: B To sum up the plot (spoiler free!) in Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" one need look no further than the proverb "...when the wicked rule, the people groan" Proverbs 29:2. We have seen Thanos is some of Marvel's other 18 films. We know he's a powerful entity estranged from his daughters. We already know Thor is not a big fan as the film starts right where "Thor: Ragnorak" left off. The problem with Thanos (Josh Brolin) is he's wicked, yet sees his cause as just. He desires to dominate and destroy in genocidal fashion while attempting to create what he sees as necessary balance, order and peace. His efforts to collect Infinity Stones to gain the upper hand (literally), on all life forms is groan-inducing to the sizable collection of superheroes, who must do battle with him on multiple fronts across the universe. For the unseasoned, this is the ultimate goal for us fangirls and boys — to have all of your favorite supes in one big movie. It's easy to overlook the real talent that Robert Downey Jr, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Chadwick Boseman exude on screen as buildings, stars (the celestial kind) and spaceships get knocked around with constancy. Make no mistake, it's even more watchable than just the special effects. The effort to defeat Thanos stretches from Wakanda on Earth to planetoids and beyond, as many of our heroes are paired off and cast across the stars. It's Iron Man, Dr. Strange, Spiderman, and Star-Lord on one dead planet. Thor and Rocket join up as Black Panther plays host to Captain America and Hulk (who could really use a big green pill). Running at nearly 2.5 hours, it's easy to think this film would be overstuffed and hard to follow. But it moves briskly along without much to confuse a first-time Marvel watcher. Leaving the film, it took a day to or two realize that what left this viewer blue was the ending. Why? Because it ended as it should. Not as what one would usually expect in typical Hollywood fashion. For the emotionally invested, that decision will have meaning — and that's what made it good. View Now
Gayle On Film: 'John Wick 3'

Gayle On Film: 'John Wick 3'

John Wick 3 "John Wick 3" picks up about 100 yards and about 60 seconds from where "John Wick 2" left off. So, if you haven't seen any of the other films, at the very least, I do recommend a viewing of No. 2 prior to viewing No. 3. I guess the best way to sum up the 2-hour fight fest that is "John Wick 3" is to use that old colloquialism: It's more of the same thing. And by more, I mean even MORE mayhem, more bodies to bury, more stars and more clever ways to take out a group of bad guys when you're often fighting solo. The plot basics are this: John (Keanu Reeves) has been "excommunicated" from a group of baddies he didn't want to be a part of anyway. Because of that, there's a sizable bounty on his head. So, he travels the world to get absolution and leave even more dead bodies lying around. If you don't think too deeply about the ridiculousness of how that is played out, there are a plethora of car chases, narrow escapes, knife fights, fist fights, horse fights, a waterless trek in the desert and blood oaths to keep your attention. And lest I forget, threats made on dogs (a running storyline in all the films) never bode well. The only thing missing from this killing fest is a trebuchet. But give them time, I'm sure they can throw one in if they make a "John Wick 4." View Now
