AVENGERS: ENDGAME is the sequel, and “final” (?) film to the MARVEL Universe AVENGERS franchise. It’s also the 22nd film in the MARVEL Universe films. This is one of those releases that is so big, so important, and has been so anticipated, it makes it nearly impossible to review without revealing even the slightest events , but I will do my best to keep it spoiler free.

It’s hard to believe that 25 years ago in June of 1993, the first JURASSIC PARK film was released in movie theaters world wide. I saw it with my family at the theaters across the boulevard from my home, in Sherman Oaks, CA. I remember the mind blowing experience of seeing the amazing dinosaur F/X for the first time. Steven Spielberg opened the door to a whole new world when he created JURASSIC PARK. That film made a zillion dollars, and was the number one film of all time, for a very long time.

When we begin talking about the summer blockbuster season, it’s generally in the month of May. However, the folks at Marvel decided to release the new film Avengers: Infinity War a little earlier, in the last full week of April. Could it be that Marvel is just that excited about celebrating their 10th year making films based upon comic book superheroes? If so, they are sure doing it up in style with this mega release, and has it ever been successful so far.

My first film review published in the Tri County Sun was, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES, May 31, 2011. It seems befitting that 6 years later, to the date, I would be reviewing yet another in the series of these films. Once again, Johnny Depp returns to the high seas as Captain Jack Sparrow in, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES.

Our first superhero film of the year is a sequel, but also the “final” film of the series. LOGAN is the third, and final film of the WOLVERINE series, and the 10th in the X-MEN film franchise. The story is based on the fan favorite comic book, OLD MAN LOGAN.

Captain America: civil war is the third film in the Captain America franchise, and the 13th film in the MARVEL Universe. The story of Captain America: civil war takes place one year after the events of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. The film begins with a flashback to 1991, in Siberia, where Hydra has brainwashed Bucky Barnes(Captain America’s childhood buddy who was in the last two films), and turns him into the Winter Soldier.

The story begins many months after the events of the 2013 film, Man of Steel. After his battle of chaos and destruction against General Zod, Superman is being viewed by the public a little differently, not just as a hero, but many are questioning why he’s even here, and what are his true intentions? During that battle, Superman’s destruction of buildings, and the city of Metropolis caused many casualties, and even death.
