*NEW* DOCTOR STRANGE REVIEW *NEW*

Strange is right. A former neurosurgeon (Benedict Cumberbatch) embarks on a journey of healing only to be drawn into the world of the mystic arts. Fresh, different, throw in a few crazy visual effects and we're onto a winner. Ol' Cucumberbatch nails it as the cynical and quick-witted super doc. Imagine if House had super … Continue reading *NEW* DOCTOR STRANGE REVIEW *NEW*

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR REVIEW

10 years, 18 films, was Infinity War worth all the hype? I loved how the Russos made this surprisingly accessible for fans who may not have obsessively watched the entire Marvel backlog beforehand or ever (Sacrilege, I know). Crucial plot points were covered BUT you would be missing out on a lot of character depth, … Continue reading AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR REVIEW

THE DARK TOWER REVIEW

The DULL Tower? With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only the last Gunslinger Roland Dechain (Idris Elba) can defend the Tower from Walter O'Dim (Matthew McConaughey), the Man in Black. BE WARNED. I've never read the Stephen King novels so do NOT murder … Continue reading THE DARK TOWER REVIEW

*NEW* TOMB RAIDER REVIEW *NEW*

Vikander was brilliant BUT was everything else? Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared. In a nutshell, flawed but fun. Something these video game movie adaptations (of late) have failed to achieve (Sorry Fassbender, the … Continue reading *NEW* TOMB RAIDER REVIEW *NEW*

MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN REVIEW

A resurgent return from the Edward Scissorhands maestro? Or another dud to add to his ever-growing pile? When Jacob (Asa Butterfield) discovers clues to a mystery that stretches across time, he finds Miss Peregrine's (Eva Green) Home for Peculiar Children. But the danger deepens after he gets to know the residents and learns about their … Continue reading MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN REVIEW

ANNIHILATION REVIEW

Different . . . But worth watching? A biologist (Natalie Portman) signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition into a mysterious zone where the laws of nature don't apply. An intriguing concept hammered by a meandering pace and a disappointing finale. It was a little annoying knowing that the main story arc was being retold … Continue reading ANNIHILATION REVIEW

*NEW* BLACK PANTHER REVIEW *NEW*

Not in my top 3 Marvel but a good watch all the same. T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), the King of Wakanda, rises to the throne in the isolated, technologically advanced African nation, but his claim is challenged by a vengeful outsider (Michael B. Jordan) who was a childhood victim of T'Challa's father's mistake. Overhyped, maybe? Overrated … Continue reading *NEW* BLACK PANTHER REVIEW *NEW*
