Ever since 2009, the sight of the James Cameron blockbuster 'Avatar' would make me roll my eyes and groan, it was one of those movies that was just so overhyped and talked about to the point of great annoyance so there was a natural distaste for it on my end. This was the case for … Continue reading ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’: A Sophisticated Sequel That Expands Every Aspect.
‘Strange World’: Stunning Worldbuilding Explored In A Dull and Unoriginal Story.
After a nearly two-year break following their 2016 hit 'Moana', Disney Animation entered this very odd phase of movies where for the most part, it looked like they didn't know what they were doing. They left most of the heavy lifting on Pixar when it came to animation these last four to five years and … Continue reading ‘Strange World’: Stunning Worldbuilding Explored In A Dull and Unoriginal Story.
‘The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special’ Is Hilarious, Heartfelt and a Welcome Tradition.
After an insane year consisting of multiple movies, shows and specials, the MCU's fourth phase officially comes to a heartfelt close with 'The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special'. Once again directed by James Gunn and with the return of the cast of those movies, we find them trying to bring the magic of Christmas … Continue reading ‘The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special’ Is Hilarious, Heartfelt and a Welcome Tradition.
‘Disenchanted’: A Wickedly Disappointing Sequel.
One of the weirdest releases to come out in 2022 was Disney's much-anticipated sequel to their 2007 hit, 'Enchanted'. It's a movie that while successful in its own time, it grew even more and gained a larger following through the years. Fans had been chanting for a sequel for years and when Disney finally announced … Continue reading ‘Disenchanted’: A Wickedly Disappointing Sequel.
‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Is A Triumphant and Devastating Exploration of Grief and Legacy.
The appeal of a comic-book movie is or used to be the fact that it presented these very grounded, human stories with the use of fantastical elements and epic science-fiction to explore those emotions on a much larger scale. Somewhere along the way, it seems that Hollywood has forgotten how to reinject humanity into these … Continue reading ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Is A Triumphant and Devastating Exploration of Grief and Legacy.
‘She-Hulk: Attorney At Law’ Is Top Tier MCU Content, DEAL WITH IT!
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!
‘Werewolf By Night’… A Very Short and Disappointing Rant.
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.
‘Hocus Pocus 2’ Is Pure, Old-Fashioned Halloween Mischief.
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.
‘Ms. Marvel’: A Cosmic Venture Full of Heart (and Inconsistencies).
Being an MCU fan means getting excited for a project that looks unique and different from the others only to watch it and slowly realize it's diluting to the same thing you've seen ten other times last year and the year before that. 'Ms. Marvel' is now the latest superhero to join this ever-growing cast … Continue reading ‘Ms. Marvel’: A Cosmic Venture Full of Heart (and Inconsistencies).
‘Thor: Love and Thunder’: A Colossal Waste Of Time.
At this moment in time, the MCU is in shambles, the fatigue is quite real and when the output of content surpasses the output of quality is which is severely lacking, the fans get rightfully fed up. In fact, I didn't even bother watching this one in theatres and waited till it became available on … Continue reading ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’: A Colossal Waste Of Time.
