(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)
SW SCORE: 44
5 out of 5 🐙
The original comic book story’s ending was lackluster. This finale to the most impressive streak of quality films EVER shined. There are 21 Marvel MCU movies that preceded Endgame. I will go to bat for 18 of them as high-quality films that any popcorn movie fan will enjoy. 18 out of 21. I challenge anyone to produce a streak of high-quality movies that matches Marvel’s run. I really do. Because I would love to watch that comparable run. As well know, Endgame is not the end. Many more Marvel flicks are in the works and I for one am more than willing to watch whatever they have in the pipeline until they use up the immense credit they have earned.
(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.
(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)
(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feeling…not that SW score is scientific…but this one is even less so
(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
