Top Gun: Maverick SDCC Trailer Thoughts

Don’t Feel Like Reading? Neither Do I! Here’s My Video Review of the Trailer:

So, I haven’t written in a while, but I’m trying to change that. How about I start by talking about the new Top Gun: Maverick San Diego Comic-Con trailer that just dropped? Yeah, sounds good!

First of all, check out the trailer here:

Alright, now wipe the drool off of your chin and close your mouth (no worries, I’m not shaming you, I’m in the same jet).

There isn’t much to talk about, if we’re being honest, since this is the first trailer, and it’s pretty much a teaser, however, we do learn a couple things. First of all, apparently Tom Cruise is stuck in the position of captain, he isn’t planning on retiring, and though his higher-up thinks something is wrong with that picture, Cruise simply thinks, “It’s one of life’s mysteries.”

Some other things we learn include: Jennifer Connelly is here, Miles Teller is here, Ed Harris is here, Jon Hamm is here, Tom Cruise’s water source is the fountain of youth. And personally I have noticed that, other than being mesmerized by the beautiful jets and the clips of them soaring through the sky with nothing but the sound of their majestic roar, I was also mesmerized by the cinematography, both on the ground, and especially in the air. Honestly, I think the mid-air cinematography looks like Mission Impossible: Fallout, and I loved the cinematography in that film, so I. Am. READY!

Overall, this trailer has me feeling some sort of need… maybe the need for speed… maybe the need to enlist in the Navy, but ultimately I feel the need to FLY into 2020 and see. This. MOVIE!!

Avengers: End Game – Full Review

I know it’s been a few weeks, but I’ve been a bit busy and still wanted to get this out there…

A couple weeks ago, I saw ‘Avengers: End Game’ and I reviewed it on my YouTube Channel. Well, I’ve been meaning to post my full review here on my website, but I’ve had to push it off, until now! If you don’t have much time to read my full thoughts, consider watching my “To-The-Point” review on YouTube, linked below…

Enjoy!

Now, to my full review of the movie (it’s okay, this post has NO SPOILERS).

‘Avengers: End Game’ is the end of an era where we see the past 11 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe come together in one, 3 hour long epic.

It’s hard to give a synopsis of ‘End Game’ without spoiling it so I’ll say this: Our favorite Marvel heroes come together to fight Thanos after the events of Infinity War. Viola! No spoilers…

To start, in my last couple Avengers reviews (I did a road to endgame series), I pretty much had the same opinion about the acting each time, with the slight exception for Infinity War; basically saying that it obviously wasn’t bad, but there weren’t many scenes for the cast to really flex. In End Game, that all changes. Without spoiling anything, nearly everyone has a moment to kind of shine and show what they can do, and they never disappoint. Even if the spotlight isn’t on them, they still kill it anytime they are slightly on-screen. There’s much more to this movie than just heroes fighting off some bad guy, and the actors really do not let us down.

The writing and pacing in ‘End Game’ is simply astonishing. First of all, it ain’t 3 hours long for no reason, there is a lot going on. However, it’s not so busy to the point where it loses you. It always has you intrigued between the story and the inevitable fan service. Not to mention, by the time the credits start rolling, you don’t feel like you’ve been sitting there for 3 hours. I mean, you do when you stand up, but you know what I mean (don’t misunderstand me, I never leave a Marvel movie when the credits roll, I always stay ’till the very end). Also, a lot of characters have major arcs and development in End Game that are quite satisfying. Ultimately, from the overall plot, down to each beat and line, the writing was very impressive both cinematically and entertainment speaking.

Before I go into the directing, I have to give some much needed spotlight to Alan Silvestri, the man that has composed 3 out of 4 of the Avengers films, and of course Captain America: The First Avenger. He honestly is the reason for 50% of the chills I got in End Game (same as the other three films that he composed in the MCU). The man isn’t recognized enough, I tell yah!

Anyways, moving on to the directing; the Russos did it again! Not that I’m surprised, I’m just saying they are awesome. I don’t even know how to describe it, except that close to every film in my top five MCU movies have their names on them. More importantly, my favorite MCU film of all-time has their names on it! That would be ‘End Game’, in case you didn’t catch on…

Lastly, before I bring this to a close, I am going to go over the entertainment value of End Game, which fun fact: is the number one reason why I love this movie so much. No matter the scene or emotion, End Game doesn’t let you go. It’s constantly entertaining rather you’re speaking in the “cinematic” sense or the fan-service sense. Every second of this movie I was in awe of some sort, simply amazed by it all. Does it help that I’ve been with the MCU basically since Iron Man came out back in ’08? Maybe, but whatever the reason, this movie is the most entertaining MCU film I’ve ever seen, barely beating out The Winter Soldier (which is, by the way, my second favorite MCU film). I’m so pumped to see this movie for a second, third, fourth, fifth time and even more. I’m going to be at Best Buy day one of the Blu Ray drop, and I will probably watch this movie so much that I’ll have to buy another disc or just buy it digitally because I’ll wear out the second disc. Why???

Because, ‘Avengers: End Game’ is an absolutely epic experience that will have you feeling all kinds of different emotions, with a Rewatch Probability of 10/10.

Thank you for reading my full review of ‘Avengers: End Game’! If you enjoyed it, consider following my site, and be sure to comment your own thoughts of the film! Have a great day and roll credits!!

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ – Trailer Review

Last week, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures released a brand new trailer for ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’. We get a lot of information from this trailer about the new Spider-Man movie itself, but also about where the Marvel Cinematic Universe could be headed after the events of ‘Avengers: End Game’. However, before I go on, I need to share a couple pieces of information that are very important. Well, the first piece is at least.

First of all, the trailer itself, my video review of the trailer, and this post about the trailer ALL CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR ‘AVENGERS: END GAME’. With that said, if you have not seen End Game yet, please be warned!! Now, the second thing is that, if you would like to watch my review for the trailer, you can do so by clicking the video below. For the record, this article will be a bit of a written version of my video, but also with some things that I didn’t have in the video (and possibly some slightly changed opinions).

Alright, with that out of the way, let’s talk about some things in this trailer! Again, SPOILERS FOR END GAME!!!

Starting with some Iron Man related things (last chance for ‘Avengers: End Game’ Spoilers), we open the trailer with a couple notes on the death of Tony Stark. Peter is telling Happy how much he misses Tony, of course Happy agreeing with him, but most importantly, Happy tells Peter how Tony wouldn’t have sacrificed himself unless he knew that Peter would be there to take his place. Then we see Spider-Man take out some bad guys, followed by playful banter with some Police Officers (again, having to do with Spidey taking the Iron Man… mantle? I guess you could call it that). Obviously Marvel and Sony are trying to give us a hint to something here, and at first I thought that it had to do with Peter Parker taking on the role of Iron Man, but after some thought and seeing other peoples comments, I’ve had some change in idea. My fresh ideas are that: 1. Peter will take on Iron Man’s role as a hero for New York City, which could be how he transitions from Queens to NYC, and 2. Hopefully, since Pepper Potts used the suit Tony made her in End Game, maybe Potts will take Stark’s literal place as Iron Man instead.

Later in the trailer, as Peter and his friends are on vacation, we see Nick Fury hijack Peter’s good time, which introduces us to our bad guy (?) Mysterio. Why the question mark? Well, because he seems to be on the good side in the trailer. According to Fury, the snap from the infinity stones basically opened up a multiverse (however, I thought the whole time traveling deal did that in End Game, but maybe I’m wrong, or maybe Fury has false info at the time). Anyways, Mysterio is now on our Earth, and is apparently a good guy? I honestly think he is just tricking everyone, but maybe this is a good Mysterio. I guess that will be answered in July…

So, yeah, those were my thoughts on the ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ trailer. What did YOU think of the trailer? Let me know in the comments, and consider watching my review on YouTube, as well. There are a few things I mentioned in there that aren’t in this article, so if you’d like to see that, remember that the video is at the top of this article. Have a great day!
