This was my first visit to the cinema in over a year, and it was good to be back in the dark watching a movie on the big screen. This movie, the latest instalment in the MCU was delayed a couple of times because of the whole COVID situation, which is a shame as it … Continue reading Film Review: Black Widow
I did a few TikToks recently where I ranked the first 8 DCEU movies and gave my thoughts on what worked for me and what didn't. I've collected them all in a YouTube video, which you can watch below. https://www.youtube.com/embed/2a62_4g9HiA Any thoughts? You know what to do. BETEO.
That time again, where I look back over the previous twelve months and decide my top ten films of the year. So, here we go from 10 to 1. Zombieland: Double Tap This sequel, coming so long after the original movie was an odd proposition. As much I'd loved the first film did it need … Continue reading Favourite Films of 2019
As the first MCU movie set in the post-Endgame world, this one is key with setting up how the universe will go from here, and it seems as though Marvel will be fine, as this is one of the best movies so far. A large part of this is that Tom Holland is the best … Continue reading Film Review: Spider-man: Far From Home MILD SPOILERS
For me, the DCEU stumbled with a few movies which just didn't work for me (Batman Vs Superman, Suicide Squad, Justice League) but they've started to pull it back with a couple of decent movies, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. This movie, however, surpasses all of them and is easily my favourite DCEU movie thus far. … Continue reading Film Review: Shazam!
One of the questions during Infinity War was where was Paul Rudd's Ant-Man? As one of only a handful of heroes not to appear, Marvel fans were left wondering where he and Hawkeye were when Thanos attacked. Luckily this film explains a lot of what Scott Lang was up to. Last seen locked up with … Continue reading Film Review: Ant-Man and the Wasp
The first Deadpool was a blast, a crude, rude romp of OTT violence, winks to camera and gags. Could they capture lightning in a bottle twice? I was hopeful, but apprehensive. Thankfully a few minutes in and the line "Hit it, Dolly!" settled my nerves. We were back and this was gonna be a whole … Continue reading Film Review: Deadpool 2
I saw this back while we were in Florida but I just haven't got round to writing a review until now. Ever since I got into comics as a teen one of the Marvel characters I've always loved has been Thor, the hammer swinging God of Thunder. He was different to the other heroes and … Continue reading Film Review: Thor: Ragnarok
Tobey Maguire was a good Peter Parker. Andrew Garfield was a good Spider-Man. Tom Holland is the guy who nails both halves of the character. For starters, Holland looks closer to an awkward teenager and is just wonderfully charming as he stumbles and bumbles his way through his teenage life. This charm and awkwardness transfers … Continue reading Film Review: Spider-Man: Homecoming
So far the DC extended universe (DCEU) has been playing catch up with Marvel who have built up their shared universe since 2008's Iron Man. It's easy to see why DC want to get in on the same kind of thing but unfortunately it's all felt rather rushed. The first film worked on it's own, … Continue reading Film Review: Wonder Woman
