The Valero Verdict: Avengers: Endgame

Welcome to another edition of the “The Valero Verdict” movie review. In this I will give you a quick movie review with a couple of bullet points of which I either liked or disliked. I will end the review with rating of the movie and a short overall thoughts.

On the docket today, only the most anticipated movie of well probably EVER!!!! The conclusion of what has been a masterful series of movies, Avengers: Endgame.

This is 1000000000000000000000% SPOILER FREE.

  • Wow. That is the first thing I can really put on here. It was an emotional roller coaster that just was so mind blowing good on so many levels. The movie peeled back layers that I didn’t even know I needed to be peeled back.
  • Robert Downey Jr. is one of/if not the greatest casting of a comic book character of all time. If you look at every character and it can range from the Joker to Superman to even Captain America, you can see others in those roles. Iron Man/Tony Stark was made for RDJ and this movie he showed why. RDJ is masterful in this movie and he takes us on a ride from the first moments on the screen to his last moment.
  • It’s funny in ways you didn’t expect it to be funny. All the Marvel movies have their own sort of laughs but this one brought some strong comedic value while not taking away from the core of the film.
  • You know the story, you know whats going to happen but yet you find yourself watching a title fight and cheering every step of the way.

The Verdict:

***** out of ***** PERFECTION

The Russo brothers directed a masterpiece. The expectation level for me for this movie was like no other and I was completely blown away by this film. From start to finish you witnessed 3 hours (didn’t feel like it) culmination of 22 movies come together and take you on a magical ride across the Marvel Universe.

Markus/McFeely deserve just as much credit here for their outstanding writing on this film. The cast, really need I say more?

You laugh, you cry, you cheer, you laugh so more, you cry some more and after it’s all said and done, they left you wanting more even after 3 hours.

Mrs. Valero Verdict: AMAZING!!! Perfectly Written.

Should You See It?: ABSOLUTELY!!!!!! Caution: I didn’t think I would ugly cry more during this than I did last week during Breakthrough. This was the greatest experience I have ever had inside a movie theater. I truly can’t wait to see it again, and again and again.

The Valero Verdict: Pet Sematary

Welcome to another edition of the “The Valero Verdict” movie review. In this I will give you a quick movie review with a couple of bullet points of which I either liked or disliked. I will end the review with rating of the movie and a short overall thoughts.

On the docket today, Pet Sematary. The remake of 1989 Horror film based on a book by Stephen King.

look at that thing, it’s terrifying looking.
  • The only thing remotely scary about this film was the cat, I mean just look at it. If you stare at that picture long enough, the cat takes your soul.
  • Jason Clarke is an amazing actor. The ONLY thing about this film that was good was him. He is one of the best actors in Hollywood and it showed in this film. He’s emotion is so raw in this film, you just felt everything that he felt throughout the entire film.
  • They somehow managed to make a 1 hour and 41 minute run time feel like 3 hours. The 3rd act dragged out and it was so uninteresting at that.
  • THE BACK OF SEMI-TRUCK HIT A KID AND THE KID DIDN’T EVEN HAVE A MARK ON THEM. (sorry for yelling)
  • We’ve made 1.3 trillion (don’t fact check me) Horror movies, can people stop going into random dark rooms? or can they stop locking themselves in rooms? That would be just great.
  • Best quote in this movie: “Good thing your no fucking vet.”

The Verdict:

* out of ***** stars

This just wasn’t a good movie, not even Jason Clarke’s phenomenal performance could save this movie. Lithgow was good in it, but outside of that, predictable, not scary (Minus that Cat that is going to give me nightmares forever), and dragged out 3rd act, this was another remake we did not need.

Should You See It?: Absolutely not. I’ve really debated what movie was worse, this or Dumbo. I would pay to see Dumbo fight the cat from this, I would lay AT LEAST $20 on the cat. That in itself would be more entertaining than both of these trash movies.
