Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

Finally. Finally something that feels fresh and different that has been produced by the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Normally I am quite apprehensive heading into comic book films now because they have kind of started to plateau into the unmemorable region of films, but Thor: Ragnarok felt a bit different. Wonder Woman earlier this year was... Continue Reading →

Spiderman: Homecoming (2017)

Spiderman: Homecoming marks the third incarnation of the character after Sony have finally allowed the Marvel Cinematic Universe to have their wicked way. Another sign that the MCU is showing no signs of releasing the stranglehold it currently holds over Hollywood. I’m not going to lie, I enjoyed Sam Raimi’s imagining of Spiderman with Tobey...

Wonder Woman (2017)

As DC tries to combat the ever-expanding Marvel Universe, they have begun by building towards the Justice League film. In the meantime, we are treated to their standalone backstories. Wonder Woman is the latest film to get the treatment with Gal Gadot returning as the legendary Amazonian. What I have recently disliked about the comic... Continue Reading →

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)

One of the biggest surprises of cinema happened in 2014 with Guardians of the Galaxy. No one anticipated the buzz that happened and it was the marvel film on everybody’s list. Fast forward three years and we have the sequel to the very popular first instalment, with the promise of being bigger and better. Chris... Continue Reading →

Logan (2017)

Wolverine has been the character from the X-Men to receive the most action, from his early days in X-Men to his own trio of spinoffs and of course Hugh Jackman returns to the character we are all so familiar with. However Logan takes on a different task, as it is seemingly set in a not... Continue Reading →

Suicide Squad (2016)

Due to the overconsumption of films from the war waged between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Cinematic Universe, I wasn't that bothered when Suicide Squad was first announced. Less bothered when Will Smith was heading the charge. Then the temptation grew with cast photos of Jared Leto's Joker and Cara Delevingne's Enchantress. Villainous characters have...

Batman v Superman: The Dawn Of Justice (2016)

The long awaited sequel to Man of Steel and the re-imagining of Batman has finally landed on our screens and it's all thanks to Zack Synder. After being disappointed with Man of Steel, but excited for Affleck's Batman I braved a screening of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice among the dire reviews the film has been receiving. Due to the... Continue Reading →

Deadpool (2016)

Marvel's slow takeover of the cinematic universe is continually expanding. This time is has expanded further into the X-Men universe (kind of) with Deadpool. Deadpool first appeared, played again by Ryan Reynolds during X-Men Origins: Wolverine as a re-imagined version of Wade Wilson. Tim Miller (director) went back to the drawing board for Deadpool and found himself with the comic books. Now, I have... Continue Reading →

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

After the post-credits sting from Thor and Avengers Assemble. We finally see the two characters make their appearance in a feature length film. I am of course referring to Thanos (Josh Brolin) listening to Loki's pleas (from Avengers) and The Collector (Benicio Del Toro), from Thor) collecting the tesseract. One thing that is cleared up...
