    ★★★★

    “Avengers... Assemble!”

    not many movies are able to match the size and scale of superhero films. they are absurd, fast-paced, and grand (many of them for no justifiable reason). 

    yet, Avengers: Endgame seems to be in a world of its own. it manages to be coherent and deeply affecting; all the while reveling in its grandiosity, which rivals no other superhero flick.

    Marvel had a lot of work to do. they had to tie together plot points from 22 prior…

    “and to think, if it weren’t for you, i never would’ve danced at all.”

    it feels like no matter how many times I watch this movie, there’s always one question or the other left unanswered — this is now my fourth viewing, and each time, my theory as to what the movie really means changes, but it always seems to not make sense in my head.

    Dennis Villeneuve did a wonderful job in crafting this mind-twisting, cerebral thriller about the subconscious. or is it about commitment? maybe it’s about split personality disorder... or could…
