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 […]

Review: Hellboy

Review: Hellboy

I’ve never actually seen Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy movies. Sacrilege, I know. I’ve also never read the Hellboy comics. So when I say that the 2019 Hellboy is one of the worst comic book movies I’ve ever seen and the worst movie I’ve seen so far this year, I say this from the stance of […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 15: Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 2

The Road To Endgame – Part 15: Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 2

As Marvel Cinematic Universe films go, they don’t get more wacky and colourful than Guardians Of The Galaxy. The original Guardians Of The Galaxy was great, a sort of palette cleanser for the MCU that was a nice break from the Earth-based stories we’d had until that point. The question is, could 2017’s Guardians Of […]

Review: Missing Link

Review: Missing Link

I’ve always loved Stop-Motion animation. As a child, Wallace and Gromit was one of my favourite things to watch. I just found it so enthralling, so wonderfully captivating. So when I heard that Studio Laika, the team behind such classics as Kubo and the Two Strings, was releasing a film this year, I just knew […]

Review: Shazam

Review: Shazam

You know, I went into Shazam with zero expectations. Like, it’s Shazam for gods sakes. But, after DC managed to completely screw up Superman and Batman, this was really all they had left. If this failed, it was over for them. So, did Shazam succeed? Or was it just another failure in a long line […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 14: Doctor Strange

The Road To Endgame – Part 14: Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is a really weird film. Not in terms of the subject matter, which is pretty plain sailing for Hollywood these days. Not in terms of the characters, as they’re also excellent. No, Doctor Strange is one of the weirdest looking AAA films I’ve ever seen. It’s certainly the trippiest Marvel Cinematic Universe film […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 13: Captain America: Civil War

The Road To Endgame – Part 13: Captain America: Civil War

And now we reach the final phase – the beginning of the end, one might say. The final run up to Endgame starts here and we begin Phase Three as we mean to go on, with Captain America: Civil War.   This is a divisive film to say the least: is this as good as […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 12: Ant-Man

The Road To Endgame –  Part 12: Ant-Man

It’s weird. Ant-Man is the first film in this retrospective to legitimately make me tear up and feel emotion. And the thing that ultimately caused me to feel emotion? The death of a bloody Ant. Seriously, I felt an emotional connection with a CGI bug. Ant-Man is a film I expected nothing at all of. […]
