Great 66 Points 2013

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a splendid TV series, based on the first two episodes. Just as the iPod was the “most Apple” thing ever according to Steve Jobs, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is the most Marvel thing ever, utilizing Marvel’s super-powered storytelling virtues without featuring anyone with, …

Ant-Man
Very Good 83 Points 2015

Welcome Ant-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s an enjoyable new entrant. Amiable star Paul Rudd is super-easy to like and jocular enough to not take the whole Ant-Man thing too seriously. After all, he ends up in a major action sequence involving a Thomas the Tank Engine train set, as see…

Great 66 Points 2018

Ant-Man and the Wasp is the first superhero movie to equally feature men and women, with the Wasp being Marvel’s first featured female superhero. As pop culture iconification goes, that’s pretty marvelous.

Equality’s great and all, but fortunately it’s not the only reason to recommend *Ant-M…

Really Great 83 Points 2015

Avengers: Age of Ultron is Avengers-worthy, as proven by its $200 million opening weekend and its Marvel-ous mix of human-scale comedy-drama amidst earthshaking fantasy. It’s also studded with LOLs, and not all them from Downey. He gets plenty, but the comic relief is more broadly spread around…

Avengers: Endgame
Really Great 66 Points 2019

Endgame doesn’t disappoint, surmounting both high expectations and a lengthy runtime. Marvelous!

Avengers assemble, with each of a dozen getting ten minutes on average to reintroduce themselves. After those two hours they spread out over time – literally over time – taking the movie to its t…

Great 83 Points 2018

Nearly two dozen major characters populate Avengers: Infinity War, a massive cast if not an infinite one. Many are major movie stars — Downey, Hemsworth, Hiddleston, Cumberbatch, Pratt, Boseman, Brolin. They can be very proud of Infinity War. It’s formulaic, but so were the great symphonies. …

Black Panther joins Wonder Woman as the second cultural-phenomena superhero blockbuster in half a year, each a terrific specimen of the superhero genre, yet transcending it in social impact. Females saw themselves anew in Gal Gadot; The African diaspora gains a new and fantastic folklore in *…

Really Great 83 Points 2016

Tony Stark has been the verbal superpower behind the Avengers, till now. Yet the motormouth of Robert Downey Jr. is MIA in Captain America: Civil War and the movie doesn’t suffer. His novel reticence in Civil War is in service to a well executed Civil War story, but it’s a risk nonetheless. F…

Great 88 Points 2011

Popcorn movies should all be this strong. Channeling Indiana Jones’ 1940s movie tropes, Marvel’s First Avenger proves engaging from the outset, exciting from the middle and exhilarating to the end.

Notwithstanding a pair of underwhelming leads, the overall strong cast, irony-free patriotism …
