Ventured out to theater on a Friday night to watch The Marvels with the entire family. Legit very funny and surprisingly short. Kids absolutely loved it and laughed out loud throughout. Rating: 4 stars
Finally caught up with this since The Marvels is coming out soon and it was much more enjoyable than all the grouchy comments would let make you believe. Not really sure what people want or are expecting, but this was an interesting thriller with several really good performances (Charlayne Woodard and Kingsley Ben-Adir in particular). It’s not groundbreaking or anything but it does a good job of what it was trying to do.
Of course, the fact that the show is centered around a shapeshifting alien species that can be any character in any scene hamstrings it a bit, but I feel like they were largely judicious enough in their use of that trick that I wasn’t expecting a few of those reveals. I might find the Skrulls abilities more annoying in upcoming MCU stuff than I did here where they’re the main plot line.
Olivia Colman is really fun in this. Hopefully she continues to have chance to be funny and kinda badass if her character continues popping up in future MCU stuff.

Gosh season 1 of Loki is just so fantastic. Rewatch done, now finally can start the new season with the kiddo.
I watched it through twice when it first came but glad I did it again because there was a surprising amount of spoilerly world building details I completely forgot about.
I wish I had 1/100th of the creativity & imagination of the artists behind the visuals of Across the Spider-Verse. ?
Doing a Black Panther MCU binge before Wakanda Forever. First time I’ve rewatched this in ages, easily the MCU movie I least enjoy watching.
I truly hate storylines that revolve around miscommunication or simple misunderstandings. Even more so in this case because it robbed us of a true Captain America movie. The Spider-Man and Ant-Man bits are great though.
Very positive early Ms. Marvel reviews rolling in. Super excited my little MCU-loving little girl is finally getting a show about and starring someone that looks like her.
