Infinity War Countdown: Ant-Man

 Phase two of the MCU was all about expanding and enriching the universe built in phase one.  With the past films we saw expansion into Marvel’s cosmic locations, the introduction of more infinity stones, and the integration of many more fan-favorite characters.  All of these changes were in line with the expectations set by the…

Infinity War Countdown: Avengers: Age of Ultron

In my opinion, there isn’t a bad MCU movie, there are just less good ones. Yeah Thor: The Dark World isn’t as good as something like Winter Soldier, but I still don’t think it was bad. Even the worst entry in the MCU has its merits, and is still an entertaining, well-made piece of cinema….

Even watching the trailer now, I remember having hope for this epic movie about how Tony was coping with the aftermath of Avengers. I was ready for a dynamic discussion of Tony’s ego and how the power had effected him. Instead we got a disappointing villain, Tony’s…
