Captain Marvel Movie Review

Strong female leads are rare in the MCU and this project is a great start at righting that wrong. The film even poses some challenges for the audience as the opening reel is not built on obvious details. Larson plays the Captain with both depth and humour. Her and Jackson riff off each other throughout and it’s a lot of fun to watch.   //   As in almost all origin stories, most to the screen time is spent in character development and the film’s generous running time ...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

During one of King-Pin’s criminal endeavours, he opens a portal so more than one version of Spidey can exist in the same space as well as leaving room to create a brand new web-slinger. Enter Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) as a young man finding his way in life who becomes the newest Web-head.   //   The filmmakers have used the CGI medium to its fullest and the look is fantastic with colours so bright they rival any animated film before it (even Yellow Submarine).

Once Upon A Deadpool Movie Review

The broad strokes detail is it’s a reimagined version of Deadpool 2 that carries a lower film classification. The hope is this will open the film up to overseas markets that don’t allow the screening of R rated films. It should also open up the movie to a younger audience. The film includes new scenes and a new cast member already know to followers of social media. The most fun in viewing the work is seeing what cuts were made, what language was changed and how they reduced the ...

Venom Movie Review

For those unfamiliar with the Venom storyline, Hardy’s character, that of reporter Eddie Brock gets inhabited by an alien creature that not so much combines with his human DNA as forms a full blown bromance. The voices in his head urge him on to feats outside his human abilities.   //   This duality is played mostly for laughs and the film is quite funny in obvious and unintentional ways. It’s also more comfortable with humour than action. Some of the action sequen...

Ant-Man and the Wasp Movie Review

After the intensity and dark nature of Avengers: Infinity War, it’s a relief to have a MCU film that doesn’t take itself too seriously and places a high value on humour and ease of consumption. It’s not completely divorced from company direction though and the coda at the end of the film puts things in perspective (so stay till the very end.).   //   Paul Rudd is back as Scott Lang (AKA Ant-Man) and he still plays the role mostly for laughs but does rises to the ...

Deadpool 2 Movie Review

Like the original film, Deadpool 2 is out right funny and filled with so many jokes both visual and dialogue based that as soon as the final credits finish you want to see it again to discover what you missed while everyone else was laughing. It also has a sting in the tail for those used to the final moments of Marvel films. There are a large number of surprises awaiting audience members both new and old, the biggest of which is how much heart the new film has. Pulling off this amount ...
