WandaVision Review

Who’s been messing up everything? I’ll be honest, that tune has been stuck in my head for the past month, and now it’s stuck in yours again. You’re welcome. While the past year has been disastrous for all of us, it’s done particular damage to film schedules. Even the biggest studios have seen their schedules…

Daredevil (2015-2018 TV Series) Review

As a few of you may know, I often struggle to keep up to date with TV shows. I never got past the fourth season of Game of Thrones, I’m not entirely sure if I ever finished Breaking Bad, and I’ve never seen so much as one episode of The Sopranos. Even shows that interest…

Obituary: Chadwick Boseman

I’ll be honest, this isn’t a post I ever thought I’d have to write. Not only about such a prominent actor cut down in his prime, but also at such a young age. Of course, we have all now heard the terrible news that Chadwick Boseman, Marvel’s own Black Panther, has passed away from colon…

Spider-Man: Far From Home Review

The next film after Endgame was always going to have a mountain to climb wasn’t it? I can’t help being reminded of last years release of Ant-Man and the Wasp, having the enormous job of both having to follow Infinity War, and being largely inconsequential to the franchise at large, apart from slotting in the…

X Men: Dark Phoenix Review

The X Men franchise very rarely does middle ground. Its films are usually either touchstones within the comic book genre (X2 or Logan) or touchstones in the realms of cinematic awfulness (Origins: Wolverine or The Last Stand). My hopes weren’t high when I first saw the trailer, if I’m honest. The dialogue was hackneyed and…

Avengers: Endgame Review

It’s fair to say this film had a lot riding on its shoulders. Not only a sequel to a universally beloved epic, but the finale of an eleven year cinematic journey that has taken us all across the universe. Boasting an eye-wateringly huge cast and promising to be a once-in-a-lifetime film, that is sure to…

Captain Marvel Review

So it’s taken 21 films and nearly 11 years, but we finally have a stand-alone female hero in the MCU. I won’t be dwelling on the background politics in this review, that is not my job. I will be looking at it as a film, which given Marvel’s near-faultless record in the last few years,…

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Review

Okay, so I’m a bit late to this particular party. My viewing of films is dictated by my local cinemas showing times, and they often don’t match my usual schedule, in this situation I miss certain big releases, or am late in reviewing them, and the review seems pointless as everybody already knows whether the…

My Top 10 Films of 2018

So, here we are again… Another year has passed, which means it’s time for critics the world over to compile their Top 10 Films of the year list in an effort to feel more important and, more importantly, to boost site traffic. As the old saying goes, if you can’t beat them, join them. It’s…
