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: Thor – Ragnarok (2D)

An effective mashing of Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor movies, great fun, colourful and yet with good heart. When Thor returns to Asgard and finds his father Odin to actually be his brother Loki in disguise all along, the Goddess of Death, Hela, is released from her prison and takes over Asgard. Thor and…

Based off a true story, two brothers are¬†Olympic medal winners in wrestling, but now they are older the youngest brother wants to start out on his own, feeling¬†neglected in his…

Review: Now You See Me

Four magicians, an escape artist, mentalist, card trickster and a slight-of-hand street magician, are all brought together to perform a dazzling show at Las Vegas. Who…

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…
