FINALLY! For the love of all that is good and holy in this world, I finally saw a good movie this year aside from Deadpool. Considering the fact that I have been on a dead streak that has included two movies that I have given a 0/5 to… This has not been a fun season for me in terms of movies. I am just happy that I don’t have to see some more shit. So with that being said, I might be judging this movie a little more kindly than others, but I do not care. This movie was great! It is so nice to sit in a theater and watch a good ole fashion popcorn movie and Captain America: Civil War is the perfect movie for that fact.

Summer blockbuster season has started! It is that magical time of year again where we flock to the theaters in waves to see the next bright shiny ball of polished media to consume. What a way to kick it off. The first day in May and we have the next installment in Marvel Studios, The Avengers: Age of Ultron. We are now past the point of initial awe of the series and well on a collision course with an end game that I can’t see in the near future… But at least it is a series that is built upon its own awesome… So there is that.
What else can you say about The Avengers at this point? The movies are what they are, small pieces of a much larger puzzle to be pieced together every couple of months for our mass enjoyment. The only problem is how long they can keep this thing up. This is the first movie where I can safely say that it has been beaten by its ensemble cast predecessors and the concept of holding patterns is getting to be problematic for the series. But more on that later.
I guess for the sake of people who will lynch me if I don’t toss this out here, there will be some (not many so fuck off) spoilers in the more analytic parts of this review so if you don’t want it spoiled at all, skip to the conclusion.
On this episode of NTSOE, I am joined by Fiona Kelly, Nick Uroseva, and Tom Goldthwait from Derailed Games. On this episode, we discuss the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the ten movies (as of this date) that make them up! I hope you all enjoy some witty banter and some great information on the MCU!
Oh this movie… It has been a while since I have seen a movie that has given me such strong opinions. I have to thank Netflix for bringing this gem to my eyes. I’m browsing through it and all the sudden I see a movie starring Chris Evans about the post apocalyptic world where all of society has now been reduced to people riding on a single train, through the frozen tundra, across the entire Earth… Holy hell this is something that I have to watch. So I watched it and to my surprise I had a feeling of exhilarating love as well as head banging anger. While the overall premise and message of the story is one of pure amazement, some of the questions that the story raises just drives me insane that I cannot help but bitch about it and seeing as how that is my job for this site, I guess I can take it as a good thing.
