Review: Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

Review: The Nice Guys (2016)

Watch THE NICE GUYS for a wonderfully shambolic Ryan Gosling teaming up with Russell Crowe playing a tank in a leather jacket. Remember it for Shane Black’s unique and sharply self-aware take on film noir. Black has been Hollywood’s go-to … Continue reading

Review: Ant-Man (2015)

I’d have never guessed that the Marvel movie of 2015 I preferred was the apparent gamble that is ANT-MAN rather than the seemingly sure thing that was AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. It just goes to show how bang-on Yoda was … Continue reading

Series Retrospective: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Ten films, six years, and two distinct phases later and Marvel are sitting pretty as kings of the proverbial movie castle. Try and cast yourself back to before Tony Stark strapped on his first scrappy suit of armour to escape … Continue reading

Review: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

You’ve got to hand it to Marvel, they haven’t played it safe for a while. For me though, the risky elements of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER don’t quite pay off as they should. Following the events of THE AVENGERS, … Continue reading
