Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Movie Review
There is sadness in both remembrance and storyline but the emotional content feels respectful and expansive. Introducing an entirely new race of people and having them be both friend and foe helps to defy expectations.
This is far and away one of the most character-driven Marvel films and it challenges the audience with a thoughtful but somewhat leisurely first few reels. When it kicks into gear, there are some well-paced and expertly executed action sequences.
Thor: Love and Thunder Movie Review
The results are a mixed bunch, to say the least. The breezy Antipodean humour of the previous film is almost entirely missing. The jokes feel formulaic and forced and the hit ratio of laughs to groans is quite low. There are some funny bits like Thor’s naked butt rocking some tramp stamps and Russell Crow’s hammy appearance as Zeus that do help to spice things up.
As oft times in these endeavours, it’s the lack of imagination in the script that keeps things ...
Eternals Movie Review
The balance between exposition and action feels out of kilter. There are ideas and plot devices that can’t be fully expressed in mere sentences and the Marvel movie's proclivity to build to a spectacular final reel seemed unavoidable. This does little to enliven the final results.
The expansion of ideas taps into some interesting avenues and things look dire for most of the human race until the final crescendo. That there is hope for humankind by film’s end is ...
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Movie Review
Shang-Chi… taps into a father and son dynamic and features a refreshing lack of romantic entanglements between its two leads. Shaun (Simu Liu) and Katy (Awkwafina) have good chemistry together, one that is buttressed by their friendship remaining platonic. Shaun has extreme hidden talents that emerge but this doesn’t change his character’s accessible nature.
Blending fantasy and real-world elements into its entertaining mix, it features some of the most ...
Retro Movie Review – Spider-man: Homecoming
So with that in mind, it’s great to see Marvel relax the reins on Spider-man: Homecoming a bit and tell a story more character driven than special effects driven. The film’s lighthearted touch with an emphasis on humour makes it much more accessible than some of the recent overly serious Superhero films. It easily lives in the MU while comfortably standing alone. It even features a crazy credit at the very end of the film that sells laughs instead of product.

Avengers: Endgame Movie Review
First it must be said that I like Marvel movies but don’t live them. With that being the case, there are few films that run for over three hours that leave you with the feeling you could easily do another few hours (after a nature break that is). This film accomplishes that feeling as it delivers a mammoth amount of information.
It is also satisfying in so many ways. It has colossal action and human endeavour, both large and small. Some participants don’t make ...
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 ...
