Welp (Honestly? I just like saying “Welp!”), I think it’s high time I brought resident film critic Cookie Monster back from extended vacation so he can start catching up on his superhero movie reviews. It’s been over three years since we last heard from our blue-furred Richard Roeper (not to be confused with the real blue-furred Richard Roeper). At first blush, it would appear the last movie he reviewed, Kick-Ass 2, may have done him some lastingdamage [“VERDIKT: If you loved de first movie, you’ll hate dis one. But if you hated de first movie, you probably won’t hate dis one as much.”], but in truth, all the blame lies with Avengers: Age of Ultron. According to Cookie in his farewell letter dated October 29, 2014, sitting through Avengers: Age of Ultron “be like watching somebuddy else play video games for tree and half hours!”. Which is pretty damning when you consider the movie’s runtime was just a shade over two.
Anyway, with Black Panther out and Deadpool 2 poised to hit theaters in a couple of months, I figured now is the time to cajole Monster into getting back in the critic’s seat. And, of course, there’s Avengers: Infinity War that looks like the perfect movie for anyone with a PhD in Marvel Comics (Everyone else need not apply). Of course, getting back in the saddle will mean writing up a review of Age of Ultron which, given the fact it’s been almost three years since he saw it, may require a repeat viewing – which would be akin to asking him to relive prom night with Grover’s cousin Shanice. But, hey, let’s see. Stranger things have happened.
Prom night with Grover’s cousin Shanice, for one.
Meanwhile, you can check out all of Cookie Monster’s past movie reviews here including his thoughts on…
Man of Steel: …dis be filmic equivalent of having to attend an uncle’s funeral at Six Flags. Wit unbelievable romantic B story tacked on.
Superman Returns: …more boring den Fozzie Bear’s off-off-off Broadway production of “Old Coronation Street Episodes”.
Catwoman: Verdikt: Dis movie a CATastrophe. Get it it? She a cat!
The Incredible Hulk: Verdikt: If dis movie was a frat house, it be Pi Krappa Gamma.
Meanwhile, it looks like them marbles (consult previous blog entry for reference) have rounded the bend and are headed towards the finish line. Comet is still out in front but Reflektor is closing fast. Looks like I may need to start binging horror movies.
