I can already see the mob of bigots coming for me after reading the title of this review but I have to say it, after the exhausting rollercoaster that is Phase 4 of the MCU, it felt particularly nice to have a show that I could count on every week to make me laugh and … Continue reading ‘She-Hulk: Attorney At Law’ Is Top Tier MCU Content, DEAL WITH IT!
I always say there should be more spooky episodes and specials and it's insane that the MCU has done it before some of our favourite shows have. With Phase 4 exploring some of the darker elements of the multiverse with characters like the Scarlet Witch, Moon Knight and Daredevil (technically), the addition of Werewolf By … Continue reading ‘Werewolf By Night’… A Very Short and Disappointing Rant.
They don't make them like they used to, Halloween movies I mean. Not horror movies or thrillers, I mean movies centred around Halloween. Of course, we have the affairs of Jamie Lee Curtis going head to head with Michael Myers but it's not really a family-friendly event is it? As a child who grew up … Continue reading ‘Hocus Pocus 2’ Is Pure, Old-Fashioned Halloween Mischief.
To bring back Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen to reprise their roles as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader in a show where John Williams himself composed the theme only for it to become a distant memory a few weeks after its release... is truly remarkable. This was my most anticipated show for Disney+, I was … Continue reading ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’… I Mean The Concept Was Nice At Least.
We may not be in 2002 anymore but the new 'Spider-Man' movie just dominated the box-office and Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have just gotten engaged again so we're close enough. In those twenty years, however, pop culture hasn't really changed all that much, it has only adapted to the ever-changing times. What's interesting though, … Continue reading ‘Turning Red’ Is Certified Pixar Awesome Sauce.
It has been so insanely long since a musical soundtrack has infiltrated my brain to such an addicting level. It only makes sense that the movie to do it is a Disney musical with songs composed by Lin-Manuel Miranda. As the entire world knows by now, the latest Disney hit, 'Encanto' has been making quite … Continue reading Ranking The Songs From Disney’s ‘Encanto’!
Just as the cinematic entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have formed their own formula, it seems that the small-scale Disney+ entries have also found theirs. With a highly divisive 2021, Marvel released a set of nine projects, four of them winning mountains of praise and the other five being dismissed with annoyance and disappointment. … Continue reading ‘Hawkeye’ Hits The Bullseye On The MCU’s Rapidly Growing Problem.
It's 2021, we're almost done with the year yet Marvel continuous to have this choke-hold position on its fans as we talk about the MCU yet again (and twice more after this) with 'What If...?'. This boldly animated show takes to the multiverse to explore a reality far different from the one we have been … Continue reading ‘What If…?’ Falls Victim Yet Again to the MCU’s Formula.
The much-needed albeit unplanned hiatus from Marvel Studios is paying off quite intensely with four MCU projects having debuted this year alone. Some were groundbreaking (WandaVision) and some were genuinely questionable (Falcon and The Winter Soldier). 'Loki' takes the good and the bad of both those projects and implements them in a season that's incredibly … Continue reading ‘Loki’: Season 1 is A Chaotic Mess And I Lived For It.
To feel comforted is to feel nostalgic, safe and loved. Whether it's mom's homemade shepherd's pie, a piece of entertainment that speaks to the soul or even a favourite blanket. If something is comforting to you, it is because it's feeding what makes you... you! To put it in simple terms, Pixar's latest film 'Luca' … Continue reading ‘Luca’ Is Pixar’s Greatest Comfort Movie.
