The New Mutants Review

For a while, it seemed like this film was never going to come out. After being filmed back in 2017, it has subsequently had FIVE different release dates, facing several different setbacks along the way, including, but not limited to, a studio takeover, and a global pandemic. Considering that this was filmed at the same…

Was Arthur Fleck Really The Joker?

I think enough time has now passed since the release of Joker last year to properly delve into some talking points, now being a comfortable time to start giving away the kind of spoilers that would see me flogged in the street immediately post-release, but now people have had time to watch, there is now time…

Deadpool Review

Deadpool is a film with a fair amount of history leading up to it’s production.

Boasting an eye-wateringly huge cast and promising to be a once-in-a-lifetime film, that is sure to…

I apologise, as I usually take longer to get to my ultimate opinion, but my disdain for this film cannot be contained for even a…

Hollywood Has a Superhero Problem

Back in the 2000’s, when I first started going to the cinema the big releases of Superhero movies were a rare commodity. The first one I remember seeing (baring in mind my memory is terrible, so it is possible I saw one beforehand) was 2005’s Batman Begins. I went with school and I really enjoyed…
