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…

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…

Venom Review

In the wider world of superhero movies, it’s safe to say that not much was expected of Venom. Coming after years of toiling in development hell, many thought it would never see the light of day. This film wasn’t even on my radar this year, which is odd for a comic-book film and this was…

Top 10 Worst Superhero Movies

Sir Isaac Newton once said that: “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.” But what did he know? He probably had concussion from sitting under apple trees, the silly sod. Basically what I’m trying to say is, last week I did the Top 10 Best Superhero Movies, so naturally I’m following it up with…

My Top 10 Best Superhero Films

So, I don’t know whether you’ve noticed, but superhero films are quite popular at the moment. Shocking, I know, but they’re all over the place right now. With Marvel and DC both reliably churning out movies of varying quality, and given my longer editorial pieces like this tend to get more views, I thought it…
