Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Review

There was an idea: to bring together a group of remarkable franchises, to see if they could become something bigger. So when we wanted more, they could bring us the battles we never could’ve believed we’d ever see on the big screen. The Mad Titan is finally making his move and first to feel the … Continue reading Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Review

War For The Planet Of The Apes (2017) Review

As a rule, I’m not a fan of prequels.

With Draenor, the Orc … Continue reading Warcraft: The Beginning (2016) Review

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) Review

Where “Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes” was a pleasant much-better-than-expected surprise, it’s sequel (the sequel to the prequel after the [failed*] reboot of the franchise) has a much higher standard to live up to. Set ten years after the events of the previous film, “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes” picks up … Continue reading Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) Review
