Review: Jojo Rabbit (2019)
I had heard many things about Taika Waititi’s latest which, like Thor: Ragnarok and others, he not only directed but stars in — this time, as the one and only Adolf Hitler, but as an imaginary friend of 10-year-old Nazi fanatic Jojo (newcomer Roman Griffin Davis).
Review: Marriage Story (2019)
I consider myself fortunate that I have never been through or been witness to the sad, unfortunate events that transpire in Marriage Story. Writer/director Noah Baumbach has used his own divorce as inspiration for the movie that is replete with authenticity — or so it seems, to someone like myself who is (luckily) unfamiliar with such a situation.
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.
