Avengers Endgame: An alternate take!

Avengers Endgame: An alternate take!

What more can be talked of about Endgame that hasn’t already been said? I guess nobody has called it contrived fan service, pandering to obsessive fans that acclaimed it the day it was announced. Because that is, in a nutshell, what Endgame was tasked with doing. Wrapping up ten years’ worth of storylines is no small feat, but with the promising set […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

PREVIEW: Avengers: Endgame #2

PREVIEW: Avengers: Endgame #2

A new trailer has landed and it’s time for one more (hopefully the last) trailer breakdown. It’s a shame we won’t hear Robert Downey Jr. shout “Get lost, Squidward” one last time. The trailer opens with a black and white shot of Downey Jr’s first scene as the legendary icon that is – Iron Man. […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 3: Iron Man 2

The Road To Endgame – Part 3: Iron Man 2

Ah, here we are: the first major dud in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I must admit, I’ve been dreading reviewing this film. Surely, being the second Iron Man film and the third film in the MCU overall, it’ll have learnt from the mistakes of the previous two? Surely it’ll be better than the simply decent […]

The Road To Endgame – Part 1: Iron Man

The Road To Endgame – Part 1: Iron Man

So here we are, right back at the beginning. It’s hard to believe it’s now been eleven years since this all started – the whole concept of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is ingrained in our cultural identity now. Did we exist before the MCU? Did life matter before the MCU? What were we before the […]
