; Sam Hargrave’s Extraction (2020) is the story of Taylor Rake (Chris Hemsworth) who when the movie opens seemingly has a death wish, which might have something to do with him accepting an assignment from his handler, Arjun (Piyush Khati) to free the son of a drug lord who was kidnapped by a rival drug […]
The last film in the 22 movie Marvel Cinematic Universe ended with Avengers: Endgame, and it’s a spectacular and fitting ending filled to bursting–did I mention it’s just over three hours–with humor, drama and pathos.
