Taking out the abundance of fan service, there is still a good movie behind "Avengers: Endgame". The pacing is very solid with rarely a moment that feels dull or unnecessary and at nearly 3 1/2 hours that's quite a feat. The action is what you would expect from a big budgeted action movie though there is a lot of short cuts and darkly lit moments throughout the climax that i'm not really a huge fan of. Many of the main characters had some good story arcs and character development. One of my biggest criticisms character wise though is Captain Marvel. For a character that was being built up quite a bit in the MCU she's in the movie for about 10 minutes and does very little. I couldn't really find any major plot holes with the story and any minor ones were later explained within the film. The comedic moments were all fine but nothing note worthy. Overall its a satisfying experience and a good way to cap off the end of many characters and story arcs in the MCU.
As soon as I saw the poster for this I knew it was going to bad, the previews confirmed it.
Why would I want to see a movie about a person I don't like and is not a very good one at that?
The last time we saw Dr. Seuss' classic Christmas story on the big screen it was an ugly and mean spirited live action mess, not even touching the greatness of the original. So what does this remake do to stand out? One positive is that its back to being animated and its much more bright and colorful. The overall tone is more positive and light hearted. The voice acting is done by an all star cast (when is it not really?) and everyone fits into their roles just fine. One of the biggest down sides is that its still a full length movie. Its less than 90 minutes and you can still tell there's some padding. They repeat a few lines and moments almost to a tee and the subplot with Fred the fat reindeer is unnecessary. Overall its fine for young kids and may work for some adults, but if you had to watch an adaption of "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" the original TV special is still the way to go.
