Review: Rocketman

Review: Rocketman

I’ve got to say, this whole music biopic trend is quite the ride, isn’t it? Following on from the intensely mediocre biopic that was Bohemian Rhapsody last year, Rocketman is this years big blowout music feature – and to say I went into it with cynicism is to undersell how I was feeling. I wanted […]

Review: Booksmart

Review: Booksmart

Every now and again, a film comes along that will define a generation. The Breakfast Club, Superbad, Mean Girls, This is England and Rebel Without a Cause are all prime examples of this and, I’m happy to say, Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut, Booksmart, is about to join the list. Booksmart‘s premise is an extremely interesting and (at […]

Review: Long Shot

Review: Long Shot

I’m a hopeless romantic. It’s always been one of my greatest strengths, and yet one of my greatest weaknesses. Romantic Comedies always stand a better chance of sating me because I’m unsatisfied with my life – it’s been that way since I was 12. So when I was given the option to watch the Seth […]

Review: Avengers: Endgame

Review: Avengers: Endgame

  The year is 2008. A young boy is at Blockbusters with his auntie. Nothing really catches his eye, until he notices something out of the corner of his eye: a DVD called Iron Man. The boy rents the film and takes it back to his auntie’s. After watching the film, he thinks not much […]

Tarantino Time with Ryan Easby: Reservoir Dogs

Tarantino Time with Ryan Easby: Reservoir Dogs

I’ll admit readily, I’ve never really seen the appeal of Tarantino. I watched Django Unchained in 2016 and can’t remember much from it at all, and everything else I’ve heard about his films have made him out to be this godlike director. So, when I saw a boxset of five Tarantino blu-rays on a popular […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 20: Ant-Man And The Wasp

Ant-Man And The Wasp (referred to as AMATW from now on) has a peculiar placement in the MCU. Coming out a couple of months after the spectacle that was Avengers: Infinity War, it had the unenviable task of following in that film’s shadow. I quite enjoyed the original Ant-Man, but the obvious question here is […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 19: Avengers: Infinity War

The Road To Endgame – Part 19: Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War is a landmark film. It’s the start of the end of the Infinity Saga and a film that had insane levels of build-up and hype around it. People spent years looking forward to this film, to the meeting of all the Marvel characters introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far (Sans […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 18: Black Panther

The Road To Endgame – Part 18: Black Panther

Upon release, Black Panther had a pretty sizeable amount of hype around it, for a very specific reason. It had a majoritively black cast, something unheard of in major Hollywood releases. Of course, this does not equal quality. So the question I ask today, on The Road To Endgame, is Black Panther as good a […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 17: Thor: Ragnarok

The Road To Endgame – Part 17: Thor: Ragnarok

Thor and Thor: The Dark World were two awful films. I’m talking next level boring and just out of place in the general scheme of things. So to hear they were making a sequel was originally exasperating. Nobody asked for a third Thor film, so why on earth were they making one? Then I found […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 16: Spider-Man Homecoming

The Road To Endgame – Part 16: Spider-Man Homecoming

Spider-Man is hands down my favourite superhero, no contest. Growing up, he’s the one I was most exposed to, having watched the Raimi trilogy, the Andrew Garfield films (I shudder when I remember those) and most of the cartoons. I read the comics at every opportunity, normally pulling out one or two every time I […]
