Eternals (***1/2) the biggest can of worms (no spoilers)

The questions heading into the film are numerous. Some are answered: even more arise in their wake.

Captain Marvel is reviewed by a 40+ year-old man and his teenage daughter

“Em is excited at the prospects of this film. She looks forward to seeing Captain take over a leadership role with the Avengers. Conversations drift back and forth between characters as she imagines whose place she will supplant. This is not excitement for girl power. It’s just a person who enjoys the evolution of the Marvel Universe. Will this supplant her love for Tony, Peter Parker or Loki? Does it have to? Em doesn’t think so.”

Crazy Rich Asians (***1/2) leaves you wanting…happily

Like anything, though, it’s a vote to see better films of a various cultures when one supports a variety of films from those different cultures. I enjoyed learning a bit about the history of Singapore and I look forward to discovering more. At some point, perhaps we’ll get more epic stories. For now, I will settle for being entertained, a bit more educated…and happy.
