We are very excited to announce that we are starting a movie review channel. Right now you can go see our first ever video on my YouTube channel (link in bio) we know that this is a very rough first video but we want to take you on the journey with us as we improve and develop the show. As usual all input is welcome here or in the YouTube comments. Expect more to come y’all ✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼🎞📽 #avengersendgame Edit: Will be making an actual channel dedicated to series stay tuned
In their debut video, the brothers review the record-smashing Avengers: Endgame, the most recent film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They are joined by their older cousin Taj (Tariano Adryall Jackson) and a “special guest” named James Sutherland.
The 44-minute-long video takes a spoiler-free, in-depth look at the globally successful movie.
It also gives viewers a good look at Blanket’s personality, as the 17-year-old — who is generally absent from the public eye and social media — takes the lead for the majority of its span. He also now refers to himself as “Bigi.”
“We know that this is a very rough first video,” wrote Prince, “but we want to take you on the journey with us as we improve and develop the show.”
The recent graduate added that the brothers will be starting a new channel “dedicated to the series” as the current page, Life On 2, is his own personal account.
The video also reveals that while the brothers enjoy cheese pizza and Gatorade, Blanket’s not one for the crusts.
T.J. (Tito Joe Jackson), who is the brother of Taj, later commented on Prince’s Instagram post.
“When there’s a family movie to discuss, I better be the invited guest host,” the 40-year-old wrote with a winking emoji, suggesting the late King of Pop’s sons review a movie about their own father.
T.J.’s remark may allude to the fact that both Prince and Blanket have avoided making comments regarding HBO’s Leaving Neverland documentary, unlike the rest of the Jackson family, including their older sister, Paris Jackson.
As of this writing, Prince has not responded to T.J.’s comment.
