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 ...

Glass Movie Review

Although this new work is far from perfect, it succeeds quite well in tying up a lot of the loose ends from the earlier films while creating a few new strands to savour. This time out the storyline features Sarah Paulson as the doctor who trying to make sense out of the main protagonist’s powers. This approach unfolds slowly and features a sting in the tail end.   //   Shyamalan proves adept as setting a scene with just the right amount of creepy overtones and slowly ...

Incredibles 2 Movie Review

Animation technology has changed massively since 2004 and the new edition looks great, with far more detail in the backgrounds, the character’s details are also enhanced. Bob Parr AKA Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) is even sporting a five o’clock shadow. This expansion of detail was achieved without losing any of the original’s comic charm or colour palette.   //   Adding quite a large number of new characters was also handled with aplomb. The story focus is on ...

Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.   //   Written and directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles,” “Tomorrowland”) and Nicole ...

The Hitman’s Bodyguard Movie Review

Jackson as the hitman tries his best to drop more F bombs than any of his other films and Reynolds delivers a Deadpool lite performance that shows how well he has a handle on comic timing. Salma Hayek, who has little screen time but nonetheless gives Jackson a run for his money in the profane stakes, plays the incarcerated wife of the hitman. The story simplified to its core element is just a soon to be buddies road movie and almost all the characters are comic book deep, old school ...

Kong: Skull Island Movie Review

The cast is chock full of Hollywood A-Listers including a man of the moment, Tom Hiddleston, the always popular Samuel L. Jackson (in a bad guy role) and even an attempt at some form of indie cred with Brie Larson, here getting her best Lara Croft on following her star turn in Room. The other A-Lister is that big bad monkey man, who this time out is big but not so bad.   //   The locations are exotic and the sets are stunning and the emergence of the big guy is played to ...
