The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is a love letter to Nicolas Cage, made by people who see him as the peculiar but extremely talented artist that we Cagephiles have been shouting about for years.Read More The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (2022) Review
With the imminent release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and following the multiversal hi-jinks of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the lines between the canon MCU films and the other ‘legacy’ films are becoming more and more blurred and in the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel it appears Patrick Stewart’s Professor Charles Xavier is about to make a return.
To honour this, I thought I would whittle down the 60+ films based on Marvel Comics to just the top 5. That’s 1998’s Blade all the way through to Spider-Man: No Way Home.Read More The Top 5 Films Based on Marvel Comics
Creating a top 5 list of the best films of 2021 proved to be surprisingly difficult. We were spoilt for choice as films began actually releasing again.
From the local art house cinemas to the giant multiplexes to everything in between, cinema felt like it was on a come back in 2021. And with the unprecedented shortening of the window between a cinema release and a home release, more people had access to great cinema than ever before.
But with so much to choose from, which 5 films actually made the cut?
Doctor Who: Flux is back on its feet after that shaky outing last week. ‘Village of the Angels’ is the show at its best though; with a great setting and fun supporting characters and returning villains who, for my money, are up there with the Daleks and Cybermen as the greatest Doctor Who nemeses.Read More Doctor Who – ‘Village of the Angels’ Review
Well that was a divisive one. After airing two episodes that met pretty much unanimous acclaim (an extreme rarity in the Chibnall era) the third episode of the Flux saga has been met with a more mixed response. I’m part of the fanbase that really enjoyed it. It was all over the place, but intentionally so this time. Though at this point, half way through the series, I understand that people are expecting some answers to the myriad mysteries that Chibs has given us so far. Instead, we got loads more questions. But they sure are interesting.Read More Doctor Who – ‘Once, Upon Time’ Review
After last week’s fantastic but ever so slightly convoluted opener, this week’s episode of Doctor Who followed it up with an outstanding episode. And for my money, it was one of the very best stories of the entire Chibnall era.
Everything about this episode is Doctor Who on top form, from the writing to the performances to the music to the VFX. And that’s not to mention the direction and cinematography, which was downright amazing.Read More Doctor Who – ‘War of the Sontarans’ Review
Doctor Who is back! And there actually seems to have been a lot of hype for its return. I guess at the moment, as the world falls to pieces around us, it’s nice to have something like Doctor Who to come along and make everything alright again. Even for just six weeks.
And based on the reaction to this first episode, we’ve got an exciting six weeks ahead of us.Read More Doctor Who – ‘The Halloween Apocalypse’ Review
A new James Bond film being released is like national holiday for me. And with the long delayed release of No Time To Die, it was like all my Christmases had come at once.
No Time To Die is beautiful and heartbreaking, in equal measure. It’s a tragic love story masquerading as an action film. It’s one of the best and boldest Bond films ever made and one that will surely prove controversial for some Bond fans…Read More No Time To Die (2021) Review
If series 11 was controversial, then series 12 was downright divisive. In my opinion, this series takes everything that made the previous series what it was – including the good and the bad. The highs are generally higher, but they come alongside one or two pretty gruelling lows (or one episode in particular).
But overall, the series is still Doctor Who, and has all the stuff that makes the show great. Jodie Whittaker still kills it in the role, and the side characters get a bit more development, before we say goodbye to two of them. It’s an enjoyable series that’s been overshadowed by a controversial series finale. But we’ll get to that.Read More Doctor Who – Series 12 Rewatch and Review
