Avengers Endgame Review - Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow

Avengers Endgame Review – the MCU snaps out gloriously

Avengers Endgame is a sad movie. The creative staff behind it have not shied away from showing and letting the viewer feel the full repercussion from Infinity War. Set 5 years after the events if the previous movie the remaining Avengers live on a significantly depressed earth. This stands in contrast with my own feeling on who would be brought back from oblivion and who die ‘permanently’ in this movie. Instead, the creative staff focus heavily on establishing what the fallout was, on a personal level, for each Avenger. The Avengers cut in half Clint (Jeremy Renner) is probably the...

Avengers: Infinity War Review – the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe fights Thanos

Avengers: Infinity War Review Finally the long wait is over. For years we have had to hear how Avengers Infinity War would be the ultimate experience the Marvel Cinematic Universe has to offer. Assembling Earth’s mightiest heroes and the Guardians of the Galaxy to fight the often talked about but rarely seen Thanos. Avengers Infinity War is a true accomplishment, as directors Anthony and Joe succeed to juggle the overload of characters and story points to create a multi-layered experience. This is my review of Avengers Infinity War. I should warn those who have yet to see the movie that...

Ghost In The Shell Review – This adaptation succeeds but does lack punch!

Ghost In The Shell Review Ghost In The Shell has finally received its long awaited live-action movie adaptation. The movie, directed by Rupert Sanders tell the story of Major Mira Killian. Major is a cyborg, developed by Hanka Robotics as weapon after her body was killed in a supposed terrorist attack.

New Ghost in the Shell trailer reveals the origins of The Major

Ghost in the Shell Last week I posted the teaser trailer for The Ghost in the Shell, the live-action adaptation of the 1989 Cyberpunk manga by Masamune Shirow. That teaser was just 30 seconds long. Today Paramount and DreamWorks released the second full trailer for the movie. Ghost in the Shell stars Scarlett Johansson as the cyborg police enforcer The Major. Set in a future world were technology has run amok and special interests dominate. It is a typical depiction of the future as envisioned during the 1980’s. The movie is being directed by Rupert Sanders. For those unfamiliar with the franchise can also...

Captain America Civil War Review! Marvel rises from the ashes of Ultron

Captain America Civil War Review! Finally, a new Captain America movie has been released. This time it was directed by the Russo brothers. Like The Avengers movie Captain America does not just focus on its titular character. Instead just like The Avengers, the story follows an ensemble of super heroes. As Marvel’s Cinematic Universe continues the number of movie characters is starting to become too large. Age Of Ultron was hampered by thus, but Captain America Civil War manages the issue handsomely. I was ready to dislike Civil War as yet another special effects summer popcorn movie. Age Of Ultron left me cold, not in the...

Avengers Age Of Ultron Trailer Released - Super Iron Man suit

Avengers Age Of Ultron Trailer Released

Due to the leak of an copy of the Avengers Age Of Ultron trailer online Marvel has decided to officially release it a week earlier. Set to the tune of an alternate version of Pinocchio’s ‘there are no strings on me’ we have a 2 minute and 16 second Ultron fest. The Avengers by comparison seem defeated and divided, but of course it wouldn’t be a movie if the superheroes aren’t rock bottom during the story. At this stage it is too early to say what the movie’s premise is other than the villain Ultron’s attempt at taking over the world. Ultron is voiced by...

Avengers Age of Ultron Preview

Avengers Age of Ultron Preview Comic-Con 2014 is in full swing and as every year there is simply too much news too report. Comic-con is not usually reserved for large announcements.

This second Avengers is again directed by Joss Whedon and will see a familiar cast being enlarged by Elizabeth Olsen (Godzilla) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass).
