Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Movie Review

The visuals and set design are also ramped up to a lollie shop level of bright colours and eye candy. The underlining story is rather thin this time but does divulge further information on Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and his parents and how the animosity between sisters Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) became so intense. This lack of deep story story telling does little to distract from the fun as the script is rife with humour and running gags. This is especially true with the ...

The Fate of the Furious Movie Review

The Fate of the Furious is the first complete edition of the series after the tragic death of core cast member Paul Walker and his loss in firmly felt. His character is only given one line of reference dialogue and this outing features the weakest character development in a long time.   //   To compensate for this lack of story, the action is ramped up to unheralded levels of crazy. It also shows some signs of complacency as some of the special effects are quite dodgy ...

Ghost In The Shell Movie Review

Scarlett Johansson inhabits the role of Major with a fitting mechanical nonchalance that gets progressively more human as the story unfolds. Having said that, the depth of almost all the characters in this version are condensed to a fairly basic level. The film feels very Hollywood and the film’s makers could have shown a bit more trust that the modern audience can digest and enjoy more complex narratives.   //   Touching on universal truths and the themes of what ...

The LEGO Batman Movie Review

Following his success in the original Lego Movie, voice actor Will Arnett reprises his role of Batman / Bruce Wayne as he’s an excellent choice. His voice has just the right amount of wit and snark and he plays it all to the hilt. Without getting all the Batman fanboys and girl’s knickers in a bunch, the whole billionaire crime fighting playboy with a dark side gets the send up it so richly deserves and what better way to do that than with a world built on plastic pieces.   // ...
