Screening Room: ‘Avengers: Endgame’

My article, “Is Avengers: Endgame a Miserable Bore or Something Worse?” was published at Eyes Wide Open:

It’s official: We’ve been had. Avengers: Endgame is many things. A complex web of interlocking character arcs. A masterpiece of corporate synergy. A box office hit whose take various publications simply cannot stop fawning over. It is not a good movie, or even a passable one. Yet somehow this great yawning bore of a cinematic black hole will end up being remembered as the great smash hit of 2019…

    Found myself thinking about this review while leaving the theater last evening. Replace every occurrence of “Avengers: Endgame” with “Rise of Skywalker” and the review is already written. So it goes. Looking forward to reading your thoughts (and looking forward to the de rigueur Rifftrax in about a year, so there truly are two good things yet to come from the end of Lucas’s extended canonical nightmare). Anyway, hope that you are doing well, getting ready for a cheerful holiday.
