Alien: Covenant Review

1979’s Alien is a cinematic masterpiece.  It’s 1986 sequel Aliens is one of the greatest action films ever produced.  Alien 3 is probably one of the worst sci-fi films ever made and Alien: Resurrection is a film that should have never been made.  So, what do you do when the sequel train stops working?  Produce ...

The 20 Best Performances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel has always attracted top notch talent for their films, not only signing big names like Robert Downey Jr. but also giving actors and actresses their big break like Tom Holland.  With more films with incredible casts on the way, it felt like a great time to really look at which performances made the MCU so ...

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Review

I have never been a fan of Arthurian legend. King Arthur, the knights of the roundtable, Lancelot; it just wasn’t my cup of tea.  Then Guy Ritchie came along and announces that he’s directing a new King Arthur story.  One that still stays true to the setting and time of the tale (the 5th century ...

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Review

2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy was the surprise hit of the year.  When compared to other Marvel Cinematic Universe films, it’s different in almost every aspect.  Benefiting from being almost completely separate (for the time being) from the rest of the MCU, director James Gunn was allowed to put his own spin on comic characters ...

The Fate of the Furious Review

Part of this review will include a spoiler paragraph. I’m sure whoever is reading this has already seen the film but if you haven’t… spoilers… I’ll say when I get into them… Okay yes, this is super late. I know the film came out last week so we obviously should have had a review out ...

The first teaser for the highly anticipated, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, debuted today at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando.  After persistent speculation, Disney has finally unveiled its first look at the next chapter in the journey set in a galaxy far far away.  So, as per ...

The Fast and Furious Films Ranked

Who would have thought that a film series based around street racers would last this long?  While some movie franchises struggle to reach a full trilogy, the Fast and Furious films are now on the cusp of doing it three times over.  And despite other franchises getting worse with each sequel released, Fast and Furious ...

Who Should Play Batgirl in the DCEU?

Written By: Nick Poulimenakos A couple of days ago, DC and Warner Bros. once again shocked the world, announcing that Joss Whedon will be writing, producing and directing a solo film centred on Batgirl.  The rumor is that the film will take its inspiration from Gail Simone’s New 52 run with the character (Barbra Gordon) ...

5 Best Moments from the new Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer

Written By: Nick Poulimenakos 2 days after Warner Bros. dropped the newest trailer for Justice League (which was totally kick-ass by the way), Marvel and Disney come right back with the newest look at Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Unlike the first one, which was more upbeat, this new trailer takes the film in the another direction, giving ...

Beauty and the Beast Review

A tale as old as time… After having an incredible 2016, which saw the releases of Pete's Dragon, The Jungle Book, Moana and Zootopia, Disney returns to the big screen with another “animation-to-live action” film.  This time, it’s one of the company’s heaviest hitters ever – Beauty and the Beast.  The original, which was released ...

Kong: Skull Island Review

In 2014, Godzilla made his triumphant return to American cinema and it was pretty damn cool.  The success of the film led to, you guessed it, another cinematic universe.  Only this time, it doesn’t involve superheroes.   Three years later, Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment announced plans to create a “MonsterVerse,” which includes various Toho Co. ...

Logan Review

This is probably the hardest review I have ever written… Let’s do this… I have said that Wolverine is my favourite superhero a few times on this website.  He was the first superhero I watched on screen (X2: X-Men United was my first superhero movie) and he was the first superhero I read about in ...
