Yes, I am back and back for good. I thought I would start my comeback tour with the Question of the Month, because you guys have given me some amazing response and I don’t think you should have to wait another second to see everyone else’s. The question was what is your favourite movie quote of all time, and despite there being millions of the buggers to choose from, you delivered amazingly well. I am sorry it just took me so long to contain this much awesome and translate it into the mere words of mortals.

Note: I don’t think I missed someone, but I had to go through my email archives to collate them. It is possible that I accidentally overlooked one of you, so please don’t be offended if your response didn’t make it up here. I have had the busiest couple of…

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a very different product than Marvel is used to making and whilst it’s still a safe film for all its nice to see Marvel trying new themes, this time it was espionage. This was a really well made film and I have very few to no complaints however taking on a spy thriller means it will get compared to a higher class of films. The story takes you much deeper into SHIELD and into how it all works for better or worse. The visuals are great and apart from a bombastic finale the majority of the film relies on practical effects, and I always like a mix of the two. The new Directors (Anthony Russo & Joe Russo) have done a wonderful job of creating a sequel, blending past events naturally with the current story and just making it work. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

I heard awful things about this film and so didn’t go to cinema to see it, but after seeing it recently I kind of regret that. The film isn’t great by any stretch of the imagination but it isn’t bad and I had quite a bit of fun watching it. In saying that I would like to point out that I am weird and I imagine the number of people who would also like this film to be quite small, so my readers are warned. The story and general script wasn’t too bad but if I were to give some advice it would be to not use as much of the magical and fantasy elements because it costs far too much and was the worst parts of the film. The battles and action was pretty great and had fun with all the samurai action, less so when they fought magic stuff. The visuals where strong and whilst I think the film could have done without the magic elements they didn’t skimp on the CGI. This cost way too much to make. I’ll go into much more detail below and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

This has taken far too long to review but here we are. I really liked this film and when I first heard of it I didn’t care, love a pleasant surprise. Its action packed, funny, got a great voice cast, and the story is quite touching, very much to my surprise. The visuals in this are great, I really thought the mix of Stop-motion and CGI was very impressive; I was often unable to see the difference in the film. The characters are either really funny or are great character parodies. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

This to my great surprise looks really good! I remember some vague talk of this film but this looks really good, I won’t to see it now. As an example of my high opinion I bumped my already late ‘Lego Movie review’ to my Friday slot because I wanted this review out as close to its trailer release as possible. It feels an awful lot like Attack on Titan plus lord of the flies, and wow that is one nutty combo and I like it. The cloths, the walls, the colour scheme, they all link back to a live action version of Attack on Titan, the more I watch it the more I see it. As for lord of the flies it’s pretty obvious, the group of boys (teens), their rituals and the isolation from society. It’s a male oriented tween film as well which is something new to try out on the big screen. The film also boasts a fantastic group of young actors, all very talented which is nice to see and quite rare in these ‘tween’ films. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.

Most people who know me and have read my reviews would guess I liked 300 quite a bit and you would be right, so obviously I was going to see Rise of an Empire. Sadly and not unexpectedly this was a weaker contender than its star studded predecessor but it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. The acting was passable if only dragged along by its two leads, seriously cannot remember anyone past Sullivan Stapleton and Eva Green who were both pretty good. The story and general script was pretty bad and somehow seemed smaller in scale than 300, which seems impossible considering how much more happened in this film. The battles and action was pretty great and as where the visuals short of some effects I would not have used in this film. The visuals where strong and the music wasn’t bad either. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
