Review: Love, Rosie – fifth anniversary

Review: Love, Rosie – fifth anniversary

Soppy romantic movies really aren’t my scene. Seeing people happy or unhappy over a consistent period of time with the occasional gag isn’t something that appeals to me. To be quite honest it’s a genuine miracle that Love, Rosie even made its way into my watched filmography whatsoever.   I suppose the main strength of Love, Rosie is its subversion of […]

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

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. […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 11: Avengers: Age Of Ultron

The Road To Endgame – Part 11: Avengers: Age Of Ultron

If you’d have asked the naïve, fifteen year old Ryan if Avengers: Age Of Ultron could possibly live to the spectacle that the original was, he’d have told you, in no short terms, yes. Well, that Ryan was a fool, a complete and utter fool. There was no way that Avengers: Age Of Ultron could […]

Opinion: are original films dying out?

Opinion: are original films dying out?

Feature Image Credit: IMDb As the years go on, so do the numbers of reboots or remakes of great old films. So, does this mean that companies like Disney are running out of movie ideas? It seems that good, one-off good films like Battle: Los Angeles are becoming less and less frequent and the most anticipated films […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 10: Guardians Of The Galaxy

The Road To Endgame – Part 10: Guardians Of The Galaxy

You know, I remember the initial buzz around Guardians Of The Galaxy. I was fourteen years old, a mere youth. I’d been introduced properly to the Marvel Cinematic Universe two years earlier. Sure, I very vaguely remember watching Iron Man 2 in the cinema with my aunt, and I’d seen every film leading up to […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 9: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

The Road To Endgame – Part 9: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Robert Redford is pretty good isn’t he? It’s just like, I don’t think I’ve ever seen him in anything other than this film? Well, apart from his turn in the 1962 Twilight Zone episode ‘Nothing In The Dark’. Go watch that by the way, it’s nothing short of excellent. But that’s about all I’ve ever […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 8: Thor: The Dark World

The Road To Endgame – Part 8: Thor: The Dark World

God, this film is dull. If you look up the definition of the word dull in the Oxford English Dictionary, you’d find the poster for this film right next to it. Nothing in this film excites me, not even Loki. And when a man isn’t excited by the God Of Mischief, then you know you’ve […]
