Avengers Endgame has been hyped to the nth degree, and for good reason: it’s really good. The Marvel Studios movie universe has been going for 11 years. 22 movies later, and Endgame arrives as part 2 of the Infinity War saga, and a movie that keeps most of the fans happy. I say most, becauseContinue reading “Avengers Endgame. A movie review.”
I looooove comic books. I’ve been reading them since I was a kid, and in my currently bereft and almost moneyless state I don’t get as many opportunities to buy them as I used to. A loooong time ago, I said I was going to talk about some of my favourite comic book stories. SorryContinue reading “Comics: All-Time Personal Faves”
I’m a movie fan. More than that, I’m a HUGE superhero and monster fan, and a number of the announcements coming out of the San Diego Comic Con had me nerdgasming. Aquaman, Shazam! and Glass are superhero movies I’m really looking forward to next year. The next Harry Potter universe Fantastic Beasts movie premiered aContinue reading “New Movie Trailers!”
No spoilers here! No doubt you’ve read a thousand times that Ryan Reynolds was born to play fourth wall-breaking, motormouthed mercenary superhero Deadpool, so I won’t repeat it. Oh, I just did. Sorry. Deadpool 2 is a fun and incredibly violent movie. Yep, it’s not for the kids. It’s funnier than the first, but muchContinue reading “Deadpool 2. A movie review.”
Okay, okay! I said I wasn’t going to the movies this week, but I did. Couldn’t help it. Avengers: Infinity War is a star-studded extravaganza, the culmination of ten years of Marvel world-building. It’s one of those movies that fans will love to death— you need to have seen the previous movies to be trulyContinue reading “Avengers: Infinity War. A movie review.”
No spoilers here! Okay, you’ve read the reviews already. More than likely you’ve already seen it. I’m talking director Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther, the latest Marvel Studios’ superhero film that ends up being one of the best movies Marvel has released since Spiderman: Homecoming. I’m not going to talk about the story. I’ll just giveContinue reading “Black Panther. A Movie Review.”
I’ve been a huge fan of comics and graphic novels since I was a boy. My on-and-off again love affair with them over the years has depended on my available budget. Recently I got my son interested in the hobby, which gave me a great reason to reinvest myself. Here’s a few of the titlesContinue reading “Comic Book Love Affair”
Spoilers? What spoilers? No, none here Okay, okay, I was a bit late coming to the party on this one, but I finally got to see it today. Great movie! Excellent performances: Tom Holland, perfect as 15 year old nerdy high schooler Peter Parker; Michael Keaton, who’s very menacing as the Vulture (and possibly the second mostContinue reading “Spider-man: Homecoming. A movie review.”
Oh, yeah!! The new Justice League trailer premiered at the San Diego Comic Con yesterday and I was so over the moon (read: experienced full-on nerdgasm) that I had to post it. Check it out below: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FrVcEndce9I If you haven't seen the previous trailer you can check it out here. Yeah! 🙂
The new trailer for the upcoming Justice League movie is here. I’m sure it will be the first of many as the November release of the movie approaches. For those who don’t know what the Justice League is, they are the premier DC Comics super team, made up of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, CyborgContinue reading “Awesometacular Justice!”
I don’t know if I’ve ever told anyone this, but I am a HUGE fan of Wonder Woman.
I saw Logan yesterday. And what I saw was a great movie, one that focussed on character, with a good story, great acting, great action set pieces that contributed to the plot, rather than being there for the sake of it, and some deep underlying themes and messages that resonated with me.
