The Russo Brothers deliver the ultimate capstone to 22 MCU films with Avengers: Endgame which is already a multiple record breaker for box office results with less than a week in theaters. This means that most of your friends and ALL of their friends on Instagram have already seen this movie at least once. You really should head out and see it right now before someone mentions something and ruins it for you!
Brie Larson (Short Term 12) and Samuel L. Jackson (Snakes on a Plane) headline a 1990s-set buddy-cop picture for Marvel Studios to introduce one of the most powerful superheroes in the MCU - Captain Marvel. The 21st entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the first female-centered Marvel Studios release and is is heavy on mid-1990s music cues, pagers, CD-roms, and slightly awkward computer-aided reverse aging technology.
Adapted from Emma Donoghue's 2010 novel of the same name, Room stars Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay as a mother and son held captive in a room for several years. As they secure their release, Tremblay's Jack gets to experience the world beyond their small room for the first time. The film also stars Joan Allen as Larson's mother.

Seriously, think of all of the movies that are produced each year. How many do you get the chance to see? Honestly. Not as many as you'd like? Sure. So, did you catch this one from 2013? No. But that's OK. We watched it. And we're frickin' pumped to have you listen to the podcast about it. The episode is a whopper - lots of fun.
