Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

In what is a low point in Marvel/Disney’s reception, Guardians Vol. 3 is surprising; both in its quality and its scares. When one of the team is mortally wounded in an attack, the rest of the Guardians need to face down a powerful mad scientist to save their life. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2…

Review: The Super Mario Bros. Movie

A strong collaboration between Nintendo and Illumination Studios; the film is a lot of fun! The “Super Mario Brothers” are a two-brother team of plumbers in Brooklyn, hoping to take the plumbing world by storm with their skills. But when they are sucked into another dimension, they have a lot more to deal with than…

Review: Jurassic World – Dominion

There has been far too much splicing involved to keep this prehistoric franchise going… Dinosaurs are freely roaming the Earth, and corporations are now using genetic power to affect the ecosystem. When mercenaries kidnap both Blue’s daughter and cloned human Maisie, it is up to Owen and Claire to get them back. 2015’s Jurassic World…

Review: Onward

A surprisingly entertaining and mould-breaking experience from Pixar studios. In a world of monsters and magic, now progressed into a contemporary world with jobs, cars, and homes, two elven brothers have reconciled with the loss of their father. But the youngest, Ian, never knew his father, but a forgotten magic might be able to bring…

Review: The Lego Movie 2

Everything is average, everything is lame when it feels unnecessary. Following from the closing moments of the first film, the constructed heroes do battle against the cutesy forces from the Sis-star System, and only grisly determination can overcome the cuteness. Warning: this review contains overblown praise for the first Lego Movie. This film is a…

Review: Jurassic World – Fallen Kingdom

One of the most vacant, tedious, hollow experiences I’ve had to endure in a while. With the island dominated by the dinosaurs that escaped the old Jurassic World park, there is a moral debate when a volcano erupts, an event that will kill the animals.¬† Activists, led by park survivor and CEO Claire Dearing, set…

Review: Avengers – Infinity War

Well, well, Marvel… you surprised me. You actually did it.

The warlord has begun his search for all six Infinity Stones, taking him across the…

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2D)

Remarkably untethered to the greater MCU, the sequel expands the first although doesn’t rise above it. Running as heroes for hire, the Guardians of the Galaxy find themselves in trouble from all angles: a client, The Sovereign, want them dead, as do the mercenary outfit The Ravagers. But for 80s junkie and all around space…

Review: Passengers

Star power alone can’t push this slow moving spaceship. An ark of five thousand stasis-sleeping passengers, on a trip to a new planet to call home, suffers from damage to its systems, waking two¬†people while there’s still ninety years of travel remaining. They find the task of getting to know each other complicated with saving…

Triple Review: The Magnificent Seven

We got ourselves a little Mexican Standoff! This is a Remake Rumble Review with a difference. While some are quick off the mark to argue the 2016’s Magnificent Seven as a worthy remake, touting their knowledge that the original was a remake too (le gasp!) I am happy to say that I had seen both…
