Not Everything Has To Be Shawshank Redemption Kelly Clarkson Defends Avengers Endgame Against Negative Reviews

Kelly Clarkson has made it clear: she’s not here for the Avengers: Endgame slander. In a recent segment on her daytime talk show, Clarkson passionately defended the 2019 superhero blockbuster against a slew of negative reviews. The singer, known for her candid and humorous personality, took to her YouTube channel to address the critiques head-on.

Clarkson began by reading a series of negative reviews from Letterboxd, a popular social media platform for film enthusiasts. As she sifted through the comments, her demeanor shifted from amused to visibly irritated when Avengers: Endgame was mentioned. “Who gave this a bad review?” she exclaimed, mimicking the critics’ disdain for Marvel’s epic productions. “Ugh, it’s just these big epic Marvel things. These big epic superhero movies,” she mocked.

The singer, who has a deep appreciation for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was quick to point out that not every film needs to be a cinematic masterpiece like Shawshank Redemption. “Fans love them. Not everything has to be Shawshank Redemption. Whatever,” she asserted, emphasizing that superhero movies have their own unique appeal.

Clarkson’s defense didn’t stop there. She took particular issue with a review that echoed Martin Scorsese’s infamous comparison of Marvel films to theme park rides. “There’s nothing wrong with theme park rides,” she retorted. “People love theme parks!” Her point was clear: just because a film is entertaining and action-packed doesn’t mean it lacks value.

Another review criticized a scene where Scarlett Johansson’s character, Natasha Romanoff, eats a peanut butter sandwich. The reviewer argued that with a budget of over $350 million, the film could have afforded a more luxurious snack. Clarkson was having none of it. “I know what you’re talking about, and that’s when all of her friends freaking disappeared!” she exclaimed. “They’re gone! Who cares what she’s eating?! Was she supposed to be dining on sushi while all of her friends were gone? Like, I don’t know!”

Clarkson’s passion for Avengers: Endgame was evident as she continued to praise the film. She gave it a glowing five-star review, highlighting the climactic ending where the heroes make their triumphant return. “The end of Endgame was so boss! They all came back! Doctor Strange is incredible. He was just like br, br, br, br with the magic, and like everybody came through and was like, ‘What’s up, Thanos?'” she enthused. “It was really great. I loved it.”

In a humorous twist, Clarkson decided to review the reviews she had just read. “My favorite films are my favorite films,” she declared. “I love ‘em… And everybody’s entitled to their opinion. I was being funny, but, you know, you’re wrong. For all you haters out there, I review your reviews one star — half a star! I just took half of it away.”

Clarkson’s spirited defense of Avengers: Endgame is a testament to the film’s impact on fans and its place in popular culture. While not every movie can be a critical darling, films like Endgame resonate with audiences on a different level. They offer escapism, excitement, and a sense of community among fans.

In an era where film criticism is more accessible than ever, thanks to platforms like Letterboxd, it’s important to remember that not all opinions will align. Clarkson’s reaction serves as a reminder that it’s okay to love what you love, even if it doesn’t meet everyone’s standards. After all, not everything has to be Shawshank Redemption.
