Say what you will about Avengers: End Game, but this is a MONSTER at the box office. Over $600 million domestic after just 2 weekends and $2 billion worldwide. $2 billion! That's probably more than the GDP of some small countries. Basically nobody is going to see any movie other than Avengers since it was released.
I wasn't even going to watch it, but my brother convinced me to give "Free Solo" a try. It was well done, but so nerve wracking. I have very mixed emotions about it. What he did is absolutely amazing...and yet utterly pointless really. Granted I'm sure I've made some bad choices and exposed myself to unnecessary risk, but that's an entirely different scale.
Nice cameo by Peter Croft. Seems like a really cool dude.
Monos - at SIFF winner at Sundance and Berlin film festivals, Columbia 2019. Concerns a group of teenage guerrillas in the mountains and jungle of Columbia and their American hostage. Unique in that there is absolutely no political or social context. Part Lord of the Flies part Apocalypse Now part Teenagers partying. Gripping though one never knows what they are fighting for.

Avengers 4. I liked it. It certainly didn't seem Three hours long. I was disappointed in the lack of Captain Marvel participation. She rescues Iron man and delvers him and the ship to Earth and there was zero interaction between her and the Avengers crew! Shouldn't the Avengers group have had a million questions for her? Nothing. Then after she leads them to Thanos and they kill him shes gone until the very end of the film. Also, I would have liked to have seen Peggys face when Steve shows up out of nowhere, instead of just the two of them dancing... Etc etc. All in all, I enjoyed it.
