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. While the Avengers splinter apart from each other after the events of the Sokovia Accords, the Asgardian refugee space craft is attacked by none other than Thanos, the mad Titan. 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…

Review: Jurassic World (2D)

Jurassic World is a bombastic return of the franchise fourteen years after the previous sequel. It provides much, a lot more than expected, but can never match the original. Set over twenty years since John Hammond’s theme park extravaganza Jurassic Park was utterly destroyed when the reborn dinosaur exhibits broke loose, Jurassic World follows a…

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…

Review: The Lego Movie (3D)

Utter lunacy! As if progressing from such experiences as Scott Pilgrim and Wreck-It Ralph, The Lego Movie fully embraces its decision to simple exist that what we get is magical, insane, inspiring, childish and so unbelievably happy. I had a stupid, stupid grin on my face constantly. Emmett is a construction worker living in a…
