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 ...
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 ...
Ideal Home Movie Review
Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd are the men in question and it’s to the film’s credit that they stay true to their charters and don’t become homogenised examples of a family couple. They are funny, profane and full of life and remain that way even when the young Bill (Jack Gore) enters into their lives.
Bill is the offspring of a son Erasmus (Coogan) had during an experimental stage in his life, that through circumstance has come to live with he and his partner ...
Here’s the new trailer for Ideal Home – starring Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan!
In IDEAL HOME, celebrity chef Erasmus (Steve Coogan) and his partner Paul (Paul Rudd) have a happy and rather self-indulgent life together. Their perfect existence is turned upside down when, at a dinner party, Erasmus is surprised by the grandson he never knew he had.
With the child’s father in prison it seems he has nowhere else to go and so, after much debate they decide to take him in. With changes and challenges on both sides, this could prove a recipe ...
Sausage Party Movie Review
It is so surprisingly crude, crass, creative, outrageous and funny, it is literally like nothing you have ever experienced before. It will also provide a great test to see how easily you are offended. It pushes things so far, it becomes a new paradigm. Its R rated status is complete vindicated and I would have loved to have ease dropped on the conversation of explanation between the father and his very young son that I saw attending the preview screening.
The story is set in a ...
Captain America: Civil War Movie Review
The film is filled with new characters to the big screen like Black Panther (Chadwick Bosema) as well as drawing in players from other films new to the MU like Ant-Man. Paul Rudd’s diminutive character is a great addition and provides some much needed humor to what is one of the more serious Marvel outings. Marvel’s acquiring of Spiderman from his Sony overlords is also a worthy and comic addition.
The plot has more than a few strangely placed potholes. These could have been easily ...
Ant-Man Movie Review
Well, kind of. The story presents itself as an interesting aside in the wider Marvel universe but it is just that - an aside. There's certainly an interesting story here, and perhaps future instalments may add something more substantial, but as it is presented here the most intriguing moments are when it references Marvel's mega franchise, The Avengers. And, indeed, intentions are made very clear that Ant Man will join the Avengers team in the near future. This raises the question as to ...
