Avengers: Endgame (2019)

WHAT IS THIS, I HEAR YOU SCREAM? Amy Andrews, of Oh! That Film Blog, writing an actual review of an actual proper Marvel movie? Let me tell you, kids, I’ve been on a pretty big adventure. After finally admitting that this is a pop culture footprint too large to be ignorant of, I set about…
