Dark Phoenix (2019) ☆☆(2/4): A lackluster finale for the 19-year-old franchise

“Dark Phoenix”, the last chapter for what was begun with “X-Men: First Class” (2011) and then continued with “X-Men: Days of Future Fast” (2014) and “X-Men Apocalypse” (2016), is messy and tedious to say the least. While merely trudging from … Continue reading

Avengers: Infinity War (2018) ☆☆1/2(2.5/4): An ambitious but mixed cliffhanger

“Avengers: Infinity War”, the 19th feature film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), attempts to be a big, ambitious cliffhanger for whatever will come in the next year, but it does not entirely work well as trying to juggle too … Continue reading
