Movie Review: Gifted (2017) *A Gift Indeed!*

Chris Evans and McKenna Grace in Gifted

I almost exclusively these days review event films, reboots, remakes, spin-offs, and blockbusters, so it is so refreshing to be able to stumble across a film that’s none of those; that’s smart and funny, heartwarming and manly tear-inducing, and has a wonderful cast acting off of a superb script.  Gifted is, on the surface, a simple story, but the beauty of it is in the writing and in the deep characters built by this fantastic ensemble.  And the whole thing is directed by Marc Webb, who now only has to churn out about four more gems like this before I forgive him for The Amazing Spider-Mans.

Trailer Time: Gifted Trailer #1 (2017) “Cap’s Parenting a Genius!”

Chris Evans is so busy with his work in the MCU as Captain America that we’ve probably seen less of him than any of the other key players in other projects since he first picked up the shield.  Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, we’re not guaranteed of seeing Cap again until Avengers: Infinity War next May, so he finally has some time to do some side projects.  Evans, actually, was recently talking about retiring from acting and walking away from it, but seems to have been re-energized of late.

In Gifted, Evans plays a man trying to raise his extraordinarily gifted niece in the way his late sister would have wanted, battling his parents, his past, and those who see her merely as a prodigy and not a little girl.  The film also stars McKenna Grace, Jenny Slate, and Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer.  It’s directed by Marc Webb, who is trying to make a career recovery after the disaster that was The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but he did also direct 500 Days of Summer, so here’s hoping he gets back on his game.  The first trailer looks promising.  Gifted opens in theaters April 7, 2017.

My Favorite Scene: Captain America – Civil War (2016) *Avenger Airport Throwdown”

When I was a little kid, Marvel had just put out their Secret Wars action figure line, and my mom got me a bunch of them.  I would have epic battles spanning the basement between heroes and villains and heroes and heroes and heroes and the occasional He-Man figure who wandered by much to their regret.  It’s that kind of childlike super hero glee that fills you watching the airport battle in Captain America: Civil War.

The most explosive clash to ever rock the Marvel Cinematic Universe ignites a firestorm of conflict in the game-changing epic, Captain America: Civil War. In the wake of collateral damage, government pressure to rein in the Avengers drives a deep wedge between Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), causing a catastrophic rift that escalates into an all-out feud.
