The first thing to note about James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is that it is better in every imaginable way to David Ayer’s disastrous 2016 effort. Rather more surprisingly however, is just how good Gunn’s film is when compared to the rest of the DC superhero movie pantheon. It’s a gross-out splatter-fest, earning it’s 15 rating in almost every minute of run time, but with a big ol’ heart underneath all the guts and gore. It’s not entirely perfect, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun and is undoubtedly the DCEU’s best movie yet.Read More The Suicide Squad (2021) Review
Series 10 marks the end of an era for Doctor Who in a big way. Not only was it the end for leading man Peter Capaldi, but it was also the final series for long-time showrunner Steven Moffat – as well as all the usual writers and directors that had made his era so iconic.
It’s (still) up for debate as to how successful this shake up has been, but it undoubtedly makes this series feel far more final than any other in the revived series.Read More Doctor Who – Series 10 Rewatch and Review
After finding his footing in the previous series, Peter Capaldi returns to the role of the Doctor with a slightly different approach. The grumpy, harsh Scottish man has gone, and we’re left with a Time Lord who’s more akin to a fun, spacefaring uncle. He’s a bit wackier, his outfits reflect this, and he seems to be having more fun.
Jenna Coleman’s Clara is also back for the ride, though she is destined not to survive the series.Read More Doctor Who – Series 9 Rewatch and Review
So Matt Smith is gone and in his place we have an old, angry Scottish bloke. It’s a real heel turn for the character of the Doctor and really helps to keep things fresh, and it doesn’t hurt that Peter Capaldi appears to have been born to play this role.
Still travelling with Clara, the Doctor spends much of this series coming to terms with the man he is.Read More Doctor Who – Series 8 Rewatch and Review
