Avengers end game (2019)


What is your opinion?



I feel it could've been shortened a little but it was in my opinion, very good! It wraps up the main story lines from the other avenger films, good casting and overall story . I recommend giving it a go! Hope this helps!


My family and I saw it during its theatrical run, so no need for a personal opinion. :)

Watched Tetsuo - the Iron Man again. Now that I’ve looked up what the plot is actually supposed to be, I would say that approximately 50% of it makes something vaguely resembling sense, and the rest is probably about like drinking a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster. And that 50% is not one half of the movie, it’s approximately 50% of the movie taken from bits and pieces and added together, dispersed among the rest.

I remember hearing similar things about this film. Definite experimental film.

Yes! I found an interesting making of Jaws doc on youtube once and it was really interesting.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Watched that making of too.

Capone.

This movie, in my humble opinion, has gotten a lot of unfair reviews. Dealing with the infamous gangster, Alphonse "Al" Capone at the end of his life as he suffers from syphilis and a series of strokes, he lives in a largely hallucinogenic word of his past, and is appalled at what he had once done. The Al Capone who had been the Chicago crime lord might as well have been from some other life, as this broken, pitiable man is forced to wear a diaper, and can barely remember his loved ones gathered around him.

never saw it but heard of it, it was shown likely in bowdlerized form on local tv stations. can you tell me if this movie depicted his haunting episodes where the ghosts of his victims taunted and haunted him?

The Platform.

Tis political, gory and horrific but sadly resembles truth.
