Review: The Irishman (2019)

2019 was the year of legendary directors at the top of their game, and The Irishman is evidence that Martin Scorsese is as good as he has ever been. People complaining about the film’s length (3.5 hours) clearly don’t appreciate the art of cinema, and with it being available on Netflix, it is very easy to take [short] breaks where needed, as I did without feeling overwhelmed by the film’s epic length.

Review: Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood (2019)

I must confess that, while I very much enjoyed Inglorious Basterds and The Hateful Eight, I am not a Tarantino diehard; yet, I was excited for the prospect of seeing legendary actors Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio team up for the first time, in a film set in what many refer to as the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Review: Avengers: Endgame (2019)

What Kevin Feige and the folks and Marvel have done is unparalleled, and we may never again see the likes of what they have accomplished since the introduction of Robert Downey, Jr.’s Iron Man in 2008. The conclusion to Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe does not disappoint, and uses every single minute of its three-hour runtime wisely, not wasting any beats or character interactions.
