The Aftermath

My 16-year-old daughter, whom I absent-mindedly allowed to blossom into a fully-fledged Marvel fan within my very nest, had read my Endgame review.

It was not good news.
I learnt that I was racist, sexist, speciest and generally ignorant. This is what she had to say;
Mummy, this is 2019, you cannot say Chinese, you say Asian.

‘Girl power moment’? Really? You liked that? Did you not see that it was a cheap nod to what Hollywood believes that feminists would like to see?

Dried up reed?? Seriously?? That is just offensive. Groot looks nothing like a piece of reed. If you really felt the irrestible need to compare him to a piece of vegetation, you could have researched some unusual types of trees to find the best match.
And Captain Marvel is not technically an Avengers film.
Otherwise, not bad, not bad at all.

My 13-year-old smiled sweetly, as she does; good effort, mummy, really well done, you are getting good at it, you should keep going.

As you sow, so shall you reap.
