PiercingMetal Thoughts: Suffice it to say we loved this film and cannot wait to own it on our Digital and physical movie library. These days I end up watching the films across my mobile devices like the phone, tablet and laptop and oddly enough I tend to watch them over the streaming services once I load them onto Movies Anywhere or Vudu. I use both options and they are connected so it works out well. Now as I mentioned in the opening of this narrative, “Avengers: Endgame” will be re-released this coming Friday 6/28 for a limited time and in select theaters only. It’s my hope that is bypasses the current Highest Grossing Film of All Time which is “Avatar” that earned a full $2.787 billion dollars during its original and extended theatrical run. Stay tuned to the website for any details about that re-release but as I close this item up I wonder who among you are adding this to their film library. Chime in down below.
