This film is without a doubt Marvel’s best film yet. First, let’s applaud the writers here because they took a story and adapted it as best as they could to tie it into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and they were able to do that without tarnishing the story. That right there is fantastic writing. That is spectacular writing and something Warner Bros. and DC could take a page from. This is one of the reason’s Marvel movies are so popular because they bring to life a story and characters while keeping both of those faithful to the original creation. Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. were perfect for their roles. Everyone was perfect for their roles. This is cast who not only understands their characters, but they also understand the character dynamics not just in the story but also regarding each other, and they are friends. Everyone here is friends with someone else, and it is believable not just because they are friends in real like but also because they have such great chemistry with one another.The foundation of the film is solid, and that is the key to a successful movie.

Week 28 2014 | Part 3 | Comic Reviews

By: Cynthia Ayala

Rounding up this week, I will be closing with two segments outside of the DC Universe.  See, I read more than DC, they just happen to be my favorite.  Now, onto the reviews.  I’m opening up this segment with Marvel Comics Original Sin #5, where the story seems to have lost track of where it began followed by Star Wars #19 where the writers continue to focus on Princess Leia and her character dynamic with Luke and Han versus incorporating all three perspectives equally in the piece.  Enjoy the reviews and have a wonderful weekend!
