Review: Power Rangers

Review: Power Rangers

Those teenagers with attitude hit the big screen with a darker reimagining of the original 90’s Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, and it doesn’t fail to disappoint. It’s morphin’ time! The film takes the original series and gives it a more grounded and realistic feel as five social outcasts from the town of Angel Grove, California […]

Review: Beauty and the Beast

Review: Beauty and the Beast

It’s a tale that’s old as time but Disney’s retelling of the classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast is nothing if not modern, fresh and above all enchanting.

It was bittersweet and strange watching a film that I held so dear as a child be remodelled and reworked into this live action version, however director Bill Condon did not disappoint me. Having directed the final two Twilight films, Condon was used to living up to high expectations of die-hard fans. Armed with three […]

Is DC in need of a Hero in 2017?

Is DC in need of a Hero in 2017?

The fight has never been bigger for DC, they are deep in competition with Marvel to dominate the Superhero sub-genre of the box office. As Marvel are seemingly rising, DC are starting to fall, but where did it begin to go wrong for DC and is it too late to save it?

The Dark Knight. Arguably one of the most famed outings for the dark crusader, which reinvented the whole superhero sub-genre. It juxtaposed the Adam West theme which trademarked the series and harshened it by making a much darker more realistic version. Behind the helm was director Christopher Nolan whose other work included: Memento, Interstellar and […]

Logan: Review

Logan: Review

Logan is the Wolverine film that audiences have craved for so long. It’s packed with bloody violence, adult language and emotional revelations. Hugh Jackman’s final appearance as the clawed hero challenges everything that we expect of super hero movies.

The film is based around the Old Man Logan storyline from the X-Men comics, taking place in a near future where mutants are dying off. The ones that remain include Logan, and a frail, mentally ill Professor Xavier. Patrick Stewart’s return to the role is extremely satisfying, as he gets to explore a different side […]
