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

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

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 […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 7: Iron Man 3

Full Spoilers Ahead For Iron Man 3 You know what? I’m just gonna come out and say it. Get ready for what is probably my most controversial Marvel, or indeed comic book movie in general, opinion: I think Iron Man 3 is the best Iron Man movie. Indeed, not only do I think it’s the […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 6: The Avengers

The Road To Endgame – Part 6: The Avengers

So, six films. Four heroes. And now reach the culmination of it all: the end of the first phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This should, by all rights and logic, be the best film in the series yet. It should be the most bombastic and action-filled film in the six so far. The Avengers […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 5: Captain America: The First Avenger

The Road To Endgame – Part 5: Captain America: The First Avenger

And here we are, five films into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We have our first MCU film that feels very different to everything that came before. With Captain America: The First Avenger, we have a War film, set during World War 2. It’s a prequel to everything in the MCU so far, and thanks to […]
