Captain Marvel Review
There’s a point in Captain Marvel where our titular hero is told by a male biker to crack a smile. A suggestion which she swiftly treats with the contempt it deserves: a hard stare and the theft of his motorbike. If only the seeming hordes of manbabies who spent actual time from their actual “lives”…

*Beware all ye who enter…spoilers are afoot!*
Black Panther Review
Black Panther is a sprawling, often beautiful, globe-hopping, worldbuilding comic book movie that forges a real sense of place, and more importantly, of culture. It’s being hailed as one of the finest of all time in the genre; yes, it’s very good, but that’s a claim that might be overstating its virtues a touch though.
Thor: Ragnarok Review

Just a casual 10+ hours of super heroics later, and the Avengers were assembled, but not without…
What a shame it is that Edgar Wright never got to see Ant-Man through to the finish. Because Ant-Man and the Shaun of the Dead/ Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright – who had initially been lined up for directorial duties – would have been a match made in heaven. It’s a property than screams potential for creativity,…
A Collection Of Thoughts On Tom Holland As Spider-Man
It’s been a long time coming. Ever since it was announced that the initially planned threequel The Amazing Spider-Man 3 wouldn’t be going ahead, meaning the departure of the then incumbent of the Spidey suit Andrew Garfield, the speculation machine has been in full motion. Then came the news that really stoked the hype flames…
