Spider-Man: Homecoming Review – Tom Holland manages to Wow!

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review Spider-Man: Homecoming has been a delight to watch, but it certainly didn’t look as though it would be a success when it was first announced. The Spider-Man movie franchise belongs to Sony, and after a series with Tobey Maguire starting in a 2002 and another with Andrew Garfield I think the franchise was dead. Yet Spider-Man also belongs to Marvel Comics. And so Spider-Man ended up in last year’s Captain America: Civil War. Now, Tom Holland is...

The sequel won’t be directed by Colin Treverrow as he is busy with directing Star Wars Episode 9. Instead J. A. Bayona will direct the movie,...

Alien Covenant Review – Excellent gore but also too familiar

Alien Covenant Review Prometheus wasn’t as good as it could have been. Despite some reviewers saying they really enjoyed it (in the run up to Alien: Covenant) it cannot abscond its flaws. Prometheus had a fantastic Sci-Fi premise – life was injected into worlds by a species called The Engineers. Sadly the diabolically stupid characters dragged the movie down. To put it bluntly, there was nothing to like about them for the audience to be engrossed. Except perhaps the character development of Vickers (played...

Star Wars Thrawn Review – The origin story of a master tactician

Star Wars Thrawn Review It must have been around 1996 or 1997 when I first saw Star Wars. I was 11 or 12 years old. I had played plenty of Star Wars games up to that moment, but I had not seen the movies. Several VHS tapes later and I could not get enough of Star Wars and thus I began to delve into the Expanded Universe. With some careful research I came tot he conclusion that the Heir To The Empire...

Kong: Skull Island Review – The big ape manages to throw more than just a wrench

Kong: Skull Island Review Yesterday evening I viewed Kong: Skull Island at the cinema. After watching the trailer a few times I could still not make up my mind to go and watch it. As Ghost In The Shell is still a few weeks from release I decided to take the risk. What is the worst that could happen? It did not end up being the movie I was expecting. So what was I expecting? I hate monster movies, I dislike...

Logan Review

Logan Review – A Hugh Jackman swansong I was not expecting

Logan Review Logan wasn’t the movie I was expecting. Between all the gore and action scenes I wasn’t expecting so much character development, or love and mutual loathing between characters. Now this review does contain spoilers, but I won’t discuss too many details. But I will discuss what I wasn’t expecting. So here is my Logan Review. The story certainly doesn’t start the way I was expecting, even though I had seen every trailer. Logan spends his time driving through...
