Deadpool 2 (2018) Review

Although I’m a little disappointed that they didn’t just stick with “Untitled Deadpool Sequel” as the official title, “Deadpool 2” brings the Merc with the mouth back, and he’s bolder than ever as he looks to avoid the pitfalls of the ‘difficult second album’. When Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds)’s cavalier attitude ends up costing him … Continue reading Deadpool 2 (2018) Review

A Fox In The Mouse House

"You maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!" That seems to sum up most people's reaction to the status-quo-shattering acquisition of the entertainment assets of Twentieth Century Fox. It's also, ironically, a quote which will become the property of the Walt Disney Corporation if the deal goes through. Both … Continue reading A Fox In The Mouse House

Logan (2017) Review

Much has been made of “Logan” being a hard-R superhero movie and it’s certainly in a hurry to prove its adult credentials, opening with a sequence which is almost custom designed to make a certain class of comic fans jizz their pants. There’s even an unnecessary shot of breasts within the first fifteen minutes. For … Continue reading Logan (2017) Review

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Review

The latest entry in Fox & Marvel’s own mutant chronicles marks the culmination of the current “First Class” trilogy, as well as the near completion of an almost unprecedented project of rebooting and retconning a much disliked film out of existence. As divisive as “The Last Stand” was, though, we’re still talking about it; which … Continue reading X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Review

Deadpool (2016) Review

I am so, so happy for Ryan Reynolds. Seriously, the guy has earned it. He’s tried so hard, so many times and after “Blade: Trinity” [for the record, I quite liked his turn as Hannibal King], “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, “R.I.P.D.” and – shudder – “Green Lantern”, it’s an absolute delight to see him finally crack … Continue reading Deadpool (2016) Review

X-Men: Days Of Future Past (2014) Review

While casting envious eyes at the success of “The Avengers” and making plans to attempt to replicate its success, DC/ Warner Brothers have overlooked the other advantage Marvel have over them: there’s more than one studio making Marvel movies. Warner Bros simply doesn’t have the financial resources to match the combined might of Disney, Sony … Continue reading X-Men: Days Of Future Past (2014) Review

The Wolverine (2013) Review

It’s a little bit of a surprise to realise that “The Wolverine” is actually the sixth film in the X-Men franchise. Sixth! It’s a franchise which still generates an awful lot of buzz and has a lot of goodwill despite the fact that only about half of them are any good. The level of affection … Continue reading The Wolverine (2013) Review
