It’s difficult to know what to say about Avengers: Endgame right at this moment. Having already seen the movie twice and being utterly blown away by it, there is some level of difficulty knowing where I could possibly start when talking about this movie. Especially when the internet is packed to bursting point with content creators doing the exact same thing.
For some time now, there’s been something that’s been niggling at the back of my mind. A thought that’s been growing in its weight and urgency by the four month period. As my growing collection of Blu-Ray’s stares, disappointingly at me, I feel the need to go back and work my way through them again, right from the beginning.
The problem is; the longer I wait, the more daunting of a task this becomes. As the sheer number of super hero movies movies goes up and up, my desire to consume all of it seems to drop. At this point, the prime MCU movies are the only ones I’m still seeing.
I kind of purposely avoided this topic while it was hot, it felt like there were just too many red hot takes when it came to Captain Marvel. Not only that, but it felt like there were too many people who’d spring loaded themselves to bite the head off anyone who would try and direct some genuine criticism at the movie.
As a result, my review of the movie shortly after seeing it was very levelled. You could call that cowardly if you wanted. I call it me not wanting the hassle. Because being really honest, Captain Marvel is a perfect example of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe; and that is really the biggest problem I have with it.
