X-Men: Days of Future Past Movie Review

Stop! Wait! Hold the press! Are you telling me that they’ve made another X-Men movie? One that is not only a sequel to the original X-Men triology but also the newer, First Class, installment? One that, essentially, negates Brett Ratner’s terrible X-Men: The Last Stand and the equally atrocious X-Men Origins: Wolverine by Gavin Hood? Sign me up for that! Bryan Singer returns to the X-Men franchise to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past and, … Read more

Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Review

From “I’m Not In Love” by 10cc that sets up the prologue to “Come and Get Your Love” by Redbone that begins the main story, the tone is set right from the start with Guardians of the Galaxy. This isn’t your everyday superhero film, though it does have all the characteristics of a Marvel one. Guardians of the Galaxy is contagiously upbeat right from the opening credits and keeps the mood light throughout. It has … Read more

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Movie Review

If you were to tell me that a sequel, to a franchise that’s been rebooted for a third time, that had lost it’s director, writers and the majority it’s actors would be one of the most successful films of the year, I would’ve called you a liar.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Review

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is a fitting swan song for a film and book series that has enchanted us for over a decade.  Some of the spells cast during the spectacle fizzle at points but are followed up brilliantly by truly magic moments.  There is no denying that the universe of Harry Potter is pictured with an extreme attention to detail – too much detail at times!  In fact as much … Read more
