Captain America: Civil War (2016) Review

The Russo brothers might be my favourite superhero directors. This film is easily one of marvels best and it did this by building on what the franchise has forged so far. It pitted Iron Man’s fear, anger and guilt against Captain America’s fight the good fight spirit and the ensuing drama was spectacular to watch. They really packed all the emotions into this one but it never felt stuffed or long winded and that is damn impressive given how much actually happens in this film.

“I’m saying there may be a causality. Our very strength invites challenge, challenge incites conflict, and conflict… breeds catastrophe.”

Deadpool (2016) Review

Deadpool was done right. Like straight from the comics done right, nicely done guys. It’s ridiculously funny throughout with a great cast and characters to compliment the Merc with a mouth. The dialogue was equal parts hilarious, filled with pop culture and filthy, just how I like it. Even the action and visuals were pretty great considering the budget; they really worked within their means and it paid off.

“You even look in her direction, and I’ll show you that I’ve got some hard spots… that came out wrong… or did it?”

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Review

Watching this film might be the most disappointed I have ever been in a Cinema. I have been waiting years for this film. Hyped right from the start and only built since then. So yeah this was a really, really bad film. The story was to say the least convoluted and stuffed with 6 films worth of concepts which just made it messy. The acting was either bad or they were given nothing to work with, and don’t get me started on the dialogue. Boo, just BOOO!

“20 years in Gotham Alfred, we’ve seen what promises are worth, how many good guys are left? How many stay that way.”

Hiatus over!

Yes I am truly back. As bitter and angry as ever. Going to be reviewing films, the odd trailer and maybe even some movie news.

If your wondering why I left my reviews for nearly a year then (wow a year!) I havent got an answer but I am refreshed and have plenty of opinions to share with you all.

Sadly the worst part of my break was that I also never really visited anybody elses sites and reviews. I am sorry and will be trying to give everyones sites a good look.

Now as for what’s next I will be reviewing Batman V superman first, that’ll be out later today or tomorrow. As a slight teaser I was actually going to start the reviews as soon as that came out but after watching it I pushed it back to now.

Then I’ll review Deadpool, Captain America and a couple of other films I’ve seen.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Comic-Con Trailer #1) Review

YES!!! Holy crap batman we have gosh darn trailer! I am exceedingly excited for this film. I get what the film is now and the characters within it, but it didn’t show anything of any real consequence (no spoilers). The dialogue is fascinating and already from the trailer an improvement over the last film. The score sounds fantastic and truly epic! The action and effects look spectacular, and I cannot wait to dive into more detail so enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.

“People hate what they don’t understand. Be their hero Clark, be their angel, be their monument, be anything they need you to be. Or be none of it. You don’t owe this world a thing, you never did.” – I really like this line.

San Andreas (2015) Mini Review

Genuinely liked this more than I’d thought I would. Lot of action, great visuals and Dwayne was on point leading this film, come a long way since Scorpion King. The film had endless clichés but it didn’t enrage me as much as it normally does, my reasoning will be explained later. It has been a while since I’ve seen a good disaster film and this was good. I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

“That’s not the first time I landed on second base.” – HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) Mini Review

Balls to the wall high octane edge of your seat relentless action death racing in a post-apocalyptic waste land. Well done George Miller. Not sure how you achieved this glorious level of action at 70 years of age or after directing three cheesy kids films. Glad you did though because this might be my favourite action film for at least 5 years. If it was done in this film it was done with perfection. I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

“As the world fell, each of us in our own way was broken. It was hard to know who was more crazy. Me… or everyone else.”

Avengers: The Age of Ultron (2015) Mini Review

The first half of this film is great but the second half really lets it down. What I am struggling with is whether it is that Age of Ultron is a good but flawed film or that in comparison to Marvels other recent films (Cap 2, Guardians) it just doesn’t match their quality. Ultron was a good villain, if an underused one. The avengers where handled well for the most part, hawk eye was especially well done. I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

“I was designed to save the world. People would look to the sky and see… hope. I think I’ll take that first.”

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Teaser #1) Review

So are teasers just trailers that leave you more puzzled than when you started? Yes Tim, yes they are. About time they showed something. Wait, no still 11 months away. Why are they showing this? In no way am I complaining this was a very welcomed treat. My excitement for this film has ticked up which is impressive because I was already frothing from the mouth with excitement (Maybe a little rabies). The film is clearly influenced by the events of Man of steel and I want to see how this will be weaved into The Dark Knight Returns story that is clearly the basis for this films plot. Loved the clippings of voices describing the differing viewpoints of this “hero”. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.

“That’s how it starts. The fever, the rage…the feeling of powerlessness that turns good men cruel”

Chappie (2015) Mini Review

I was extremely critical of Blomkampf after Elysium, and no less so in preparation for this film. However I actually really liked it. He has redeemed himself in part to me anyway. Chappie has a message or two that really work. It’s not about the danger of AI, it’s about how dangerous humanity can be when faced with change. Or how innocence can be corrupted? Its got like five messages floating round. Just pick one and go with it.

I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.
