Moving on, India continues to grapple with rising cases and deaths much like Brazil, “Disaster” as UK cannot secure a fishing deal with Norway, Dominic Raab maintains safeguards are still needed when restrictions end in June, blood clot cases continue to be linked to AstraZeneca vaccine, 1 in 14 people are being admitted to hospital despite having the COVID19 vaccine, 35 million people have received the first Coronavirus dose whilst 15 million have received a second dose and reckless driving continues from entitled people ignoring speed limits *facepalm*

Review: This movie may cause distress to some viewers as it focuses on one person's suffering with Dementia and the impact it has on other people. I thought Anthony Hopkins' portrayal of the suffering character was brilliant, although there is debate regarding his winning the Academy Award for Best Actor. The movie sheds some light on what people may be going through when suffering with mental health (Dementia in this case) and how those taking care of them can be affected or even frustrated. Personally, as I am related to someone suffering through this, it is nice to see some attention being brought forward for more awareness and hopefully a better understanding of carers going through something similar

Review: Seems to be a dispute with the title? Moving on though, Bruce Willis in space, because why not. Even though the movie is a thriller, the inclusion of Bruce Willis’s character, Clay, almost makes this a comedy given that there is strong language and violence throughout, not that I’m complaining, as it would have been another “Alien” franchise knock off. To be honest, I was also interested to see Callan Mulvey in the movie as well as his villainous turn as a mercenary in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice seems to be fitting with his choice in casting. Given the movie’s conclusion, it is left open for a sequel, in a “Captain Obvious” kind of way. However, the movie's underlying issue here (from my perspective anyway) is that humans destroy everything they touch, so no second chances should be given. Scary...

Review:  Think John Wick meets Jack Reacher meets Home Alone meets Bad Boys. I mean, I’ve seen a lot of shoot outs in movies but in Nobody, I was actually quite entertained and laughing (But only Bad Boys did it funnier). There was definitely something different there with that many mash ups taking place, and overall, not as dark as the synopsis or movie advertisements would have you believe (Age Rating still applies regardless). There are talks of a crossover with John Wick (They share the same producer and screenwriter), which would be interesting.

Review:  This movie could not have come out at a worse time for a country (America) that should be healing. Daniel Kaluuya, personally, is fast becoming one of the more interesting names to watch out for with his current casting choices. I think the biblical play here in the movie was very good for the story and considering that many Americans are still fighting / pushing for fair / equal treatments for many years now, tells of their struggles for many decades (From the movie perspective).

Such occurrences within the country dubbed “leader of the free world” would worry many in the world watching eagerly. I also got the impression that another rising rights activist had been “neutralised” before their time to see some real change. As the movie is based on real life events, I’d keep an open mind here

Review:  If you were expecting a quiet movie, this was anything but that. This movie feels like a culmination of a story that exploded into the cinemas in 2014 in the “Monsterverse” and converged in not one, but two showdowns. Lots of action packed scenes, some character building for Kong that didn’t seem to drag on and quite a few conspiracy theories being toyed around with (tap water, “lizard people” etc). Definitely worth watching, in what feels like a final story, but left open for potentially more

Review: So Warner Bros finally relented, and gave the fans what they asked for, with a generous $70 million budget, and the “Snyder Cut” was finally released as Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Now, I’ve seen the 2017 disappointment movie and I almost hated it more than the 2015 Fantastic Four reboot, if it wasn’t for certain scenes (The Flash realising Superman can “see” him approaching was exquisite) and the whole movie felt really forced to a deadline. Honestly, I would have been happier if Warner Bros had pushed the release date back and really thought this through earlier, maybe they would have come close to this version of the movie, and hopefully minus the negativity surrounding it

Having said that, after waiting more or less three years, the original vision was finally realised, which obviously led to even more disappointment that I couldn’t have had the IMAX cinema experience to watch this movie in. The tone, whilst aimed at a more mature audience like the Deadpool movies, has completely changed for me as the story starts to flesh out more and the character developments are built up for future appearances. A few nods to other DC stories if you keep an open mind. Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth owned his scenes

I am no longer disappointed in Justice League as the remake of the original vision can sprawl out into multiple more stories, should Warner Bros and Zack Snyder (There are reports that Zack did this for free??) decide to continue their collaboration. Now obviously, the only stumbling block would be the addition of megastar Dwayne Johnson to the DCEU. Brilliant casting by Warner Bros but as far as crossovers go, the story telling will need to be spot on in order to meld a direction now that Darkseid proper is in play. Sure the movie is nearly four hours long but use the intervals and forget the 2017 version...?

Review: What a complete character change for Ruby Rose, she went from fighting crime in Gotham as Batwoman to actually becoming a psychopath in this movie. Although Batwoman released in 2019 and this movie’s shooting began in 2018 and was released in 2021, it may even be the other way round? But lots of action here in Die Hard-equse sequences, but taking place in the Channel Tunnel. Some character development conflicts which are carried over which may cause confusion. However, a sudden twist in the movie was quite well written. Intriguing to see Andy Serkis get more screen time
