VERDICT – 5/5

 
PROS –
1) The epic finale of the 11-year-old journey culminating with the 22nd film. A journey started by Jon Favreau, led by Joss Whedon, and concluded by the Russo brothers. A rare grand emotional movie event of this generation.
2) The time travel plot enabled the screenwriters to add all the good & bad, major & minor characters from the franchise to make one final cameo in this grand finale.
3) Captain America lifting Mjolnir is got to be the most epic scene of this movie. A scene 4 years in the making.
4) A fulfilling climax for Steve Rogers.
5) Fun filled storyline with great comic-relief from Ant-Man and Thor “The Dude” Lebowski.
6) An epic finale needs an epic sacrifice. It had to be Tony Stark.

 

 

CONS –

Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

Verdict – 2/5

 

Pros –

 

1) Spider-man theme song playing with opening Marvel logo
2) Quick Civil War rewind from Peter Parker perspective
3) Battle of New York – the way Marvel is handling that alien attack is unprecedented.Usually in comic books universe, devastating battles are forgotten and people go back to their normal lives but Marvel is treating this plot as MCU’s 9/11
4) Return of the socially inept and introvert Peter Parker.Marvel learned from Sony and didn’t made the same mistake as they did with Andrew Garfield.
5) MJ plot twist

 

Cons –

 

1) Nothing worth in this movie for a re-watch
2) Mediocre post-credit scene
3) Summer blockbuster, multi-billions dollars franchise, A-list star-cast but still a mediocre “story” developed by 2 movie-writers and 6 screenwriters

Verdict – 1/5

 

Pros –

1) Crossbones fighting Cap. America

6) Re-enactment of Civil War # 7 Cover Art.

 

Cons –

2) Martin Freeman : too less screen time
3) Tom Holland as Peter Parker : Can’t let Toby out of my head,he’ll remain the definitive Spidey.
