Review: Captain America – Civil War

Captain America 3 is more like Avengers 2.5, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe becomes truly a running narrative because of it… Steve Rogers, leading the Avengers, continues to cause chaos across the world in a noble cause to stop terrorism, but powers that be have had enough. Spearheaded by Tony Stark, a new initiative is…

Review: Ant-Man (2D)

One of Marvel’s main characters is one of the harder sells, and while Ant-Man isn’t a game changer it has risen above the criticism and difficulties during its development. Hank Pym, a scientist for Shield developed a super particle that compresses the space around atoms, allowing objects to be shrunk down. But when Howard Stark…

Review: Avengers – Age of Ultron (2D)

Conquering heroes The Avengers return in their second outing as an ensemble cast. This time they must defend Humanity against a peacekeeping AI developed by Tony Stark after it goes rogue.

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy (2D)

(I’d like to say that this is the first time on Cinema Cocoa that I got the image for this review months before. I just love that poster!) So in one grasp Marvel Studios attempts to draw all the loose ends developed over their Cinematic Universe so far together. What we get is Guardians of…

While Thor does battle across the Nine Realms to restore order, scientist Jane Foster discovers an anomaly on Earth that acts as a doorway to a long forgotten…

Review: Iron Man 3 (3D)

Stark’s getting too big for his iron clad boots, so big that there’s no room for anyone else! With an advanced, advanced preview I can give you my thoughts on Iron Man 3, and I can tell you right now, you aren’t going to expect half of what happens! (the trailer threw me completely off…

Review: Avengers Assemble (2D)

There are four films this year I am banking on being at the top of my list and Avengers Assemble was the lesser. My god this is going to be a good year for movies! Marvel Studios colossal gamble in combining four of their major comic brands into one film was subject to feeling clustered…

Review: Captain America – The First Avenger

With The Avengers looming and audiences as accepting as they’ll ever be, Marvel saves the most questionable iconic hero for last, yet succeed with a wonderful sense of self awareness.
