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.

Paul Rudd And David Gordon Green Do Their Best Work In Years In Sundance’s Prince Avalanche

By:  Katey Rich Over the course of David Gordon Green‘s diverse and, recently much-mourned career, the one consistent thread is his investment in relationships between men with not much going on in their lives. The affectionate one-up manship between Bust-Ass and Noel in All The Real Girls leads directly to the on-the-lam buddy stoners in Pineapple Express, and even his ill-fated studio adventure Your Highness was just a story about … Continue reading Paul Rudd And David Gordon Green Do Their Best Work In Years In Sundance’s Prince Avalanche
