Thoughts on the Joker Movie

I went to see Joker at the cinema the other night, after not really seen any movies for a while, and frankly, it was worth the trip. The cinema was packed but everyone was pretty quiet throughout the whole movie. Understandably because Joker was a genuinely really good movie. The plot was great. The acting was great. The music was great. The cinematography was outstanding, with some really amazing and beautiful shots. This is a well-crafted world, even if it is anachronistic at times, with believable characters and scenarios. You can see this horrible transformation from a hollow soul clinging… [Continue Reading]

On Avengers: Endgame and Infinity War

Avengers: Endgame has broken a fuckton of box office records and frankly everyone is ranting and raving about how awesome it is. Mostly because Avengers: Endgame was awesome but also because it was super hyped up and it did actually meet a lot of people’s expectations, and it also closes off a chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has spanned over 10 years. But for me, something feels off. As much as I enjoyed Endgame, I found that I enjoyed Infinity War much, much more. Before I continue though, I want to warn you that there will potentially be… [Continue Reading]

Avengers Endgame – A Review Of Sorts

Avengers Endgame was awesome! Thanos got the Infinity Stones and half the universe died- wait, wrong movie. That was Infinity War. Still, Avengers Endgame was a bloody awesome film with good pacing, awesome music as always and a mind-boggling plot. Really, I should review it, since that’s what everyone else is doing. First off though, there will be spoilers. They’ll be at the end of the article with a massive spoiler warning in advance. You have been warned. Although I will warn you now, there’s no end-credits scene. Not that this movie really needs it. The credits themselves though are… [Continue Reading]

‘Zilla

Everyone I have spoken to apart from my mum seems to hate the 1998 Godzilla movie. Not one of the Japanese ones, but a Hollywood re-imagining of the King of the Monsters. Not so much a revamp but Hollywood doing their own thing. They all say that the 2014 movie was more faithful. But faithful does not mean better. I’ve watched the 2014 Godzilla movie a few times. But frankly I don’t enjoy it. It’s slow, plodding, tiresome and does not have NEARLY ENOUGH Godzilla in it. What pissed me off the most was the human characters I didn’t care… [Continue Reading]

How the Justice League Movie COULD Have Been Great.

Whether you’re a Marvel fan or a DC fan, I think we can all agree that the Justice League movie wasn’t that great. It wasn’t the worst thing on the planet, it wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t amazing either. Something was off about the whole movie. But luckily, there’s a three step guide that the people behind DC movies can follow to make sure that their movies can turn out better. Because competition is good and I’d love for DC movies to be as good and popular as Marvel movies. Thing the First: Get a Better Villain There’s a lot… [Continue Reading]

Avengers – Infinity War – Movie Review

Well, that was an awesome two and a half hours! Didn’t actually feel like two and a half hours at all. I suppose right from the start that’s a glowing review if you sit through a two and a half hour long movie and hardly even notice. Funnily enough, apart from one prick at the beginning of the movie (shouting at teenagers to be quiet and causing the rest of us, kids included, to miss the first 30 seconds of dialogue because he’s an entitled prick – literally all they said was “ooh the movie’s starting”), the theater was weirdly… [Continue Reading]

Pacific Rim: Uprising – Review!

As a pre-birthday treat, I got to see Pacific Rim: Uprising with the family on the 31st. And it was a good movie. Genuinely a bit of fun. The story follows on from the previous Pacific Rim, being set 10 or so years later after the big victory. They’re still using Jaegars for various bits and pieces, mainly just policing but only seem to have like 5 of them total. And there’s enough scrapyards everywhere that some random kid manages to build a small, single-pilot one. Anyway, there’s been no activity but they’re still training people just in case and… [Continue Reading]

The Black Panther Movie – A Kinda Late Review

So I saw the Black Panther movie. There was none of that nonsense about going to ‘x-only’ screenings or anything like that (same with literally any other movie here) because I live on a tiny little island and the demographic who want to see this film simply don’t care and just want to watch a movie. But it’s a Marvel movie and my brother was desperate to see it, so we went on cheap Tuesday to watch it. Basically? It’s a good movie. Not groundbreaking. Not mind-blowing. Not racist or in your face or insensitive or anything like that. It’s… [Continue Reading]

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review

I actually got to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi on its premiere here where I live. At five in the afternoon on a Thursday though, the theater was half empty and there were almost no kids around. Interesting. Anyway, I saw the movie. I think it was worth €9 for a ticket. There’s no need to see it twice though. I wouldn’t say that Star Wars: The Last Jedi was mind-blowing or anything like that. It was a good action flick with some drama and better dialogue than most other Star Wars films. There’s also a LOT going on… [Continue Reading]

A Justice League Movie Review

So I saw Justice League the other day with my brother and sister. On a Tuesday, where the prices were cheaper. €7 a head. Was the movie worth it? Probably not. Then again, most movies aren’t really worth seeing in the cinema, in my opinion. Still, a review is in order, while it is all fresh in my head. A quick summary before we go into spoiler territory: Justice League was alright but it was too slow, there wasn’t really enough action and too much sappy cheese. Good enough for an average viewer, probably not great for a real DC… [Continue Reading]
