MARY POPPINS

Mid-Credits: No

End-Credits: No

Review: Having seen the original many years ago, Manu of the elements from the previous film were carried over. The CGI / animation has definitely been utilised and used more, I suspect to show more so how technology has advanced between the two films.

AQUAMAN

Mid-Credits: Yes (Sets up possible sequel)

End-Credits: No

Review: I was not a fan of Aquaman before. But when Jason Momoa was teased as Aquaman back in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, I was instantly intrigued. And I am a huge fan of a good story.
I enjoyed this movie and it's action sequences were fun to watch. Definitely a must see.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Mid-Credits: No

End-Credits: No

Review: We finally get more of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald. Lots of character building, but sadly no Dumbledore vs Grindelwald. But there is a backstory involved and indeed a very interesting twist involving Credence.

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY

Mid-Credits: No (Only a live clip)

End-Credits: No

Review: As someone who didn't grow up on Queen, the movie was quite informative. Using their hit songs sort've carried on the movie as people reminisce about their glory days. I liked that it didn't drag on about Freddie Mercury's later years. And not to mention more attention on their hit song, Bohemian Rhapsody.

FIRST MAN

Mid-Credits: No

End-Credits: No

Review: As told from the actors (Ryan Gosling / Neil Armstrong's) view point. An interesting take on this event (whether the moon landings were faked or not) with good animation. Well worth watching in IMAX.

VENOM

Mid-Credits: Yes (Sets up sequel)

End-Credits: Yes

Review: Venom has undergone a change in Marvel comics from villain to anti-hero, which is good seeing  this being replicated on the big screen. This movie has the potential to develop further.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls

Mid-Credits: No

End-Credits: No

Review: Not sure why it's 12A, heavy blood magic and demon referencing, should have been rated 12. Might as well have been an Annabelle franchise style movie. But it is Jack Black, so humour is involved. Definitely not for the faint hearted and the feeble minded.

THE PREDATOR

Mid-Credits: No
End-Credits: No
Review: I didn't grow up on the older Predator franchise films, until Alien vs Predator (Plus Requiem) and the Predators movie. Having said that, this movie looks to expand on future Predator movie endeavours, and I hope they do more stories in space to show audiences how they recieved their formidable namesake.

THE MEG

Mid-Credits: No
End-Credits: No
Review: I didn't grow up on the "Jaws" franchise or have much bother for other shark movies (Sharknado, Deep Blue Sea). However, you can't go wrong with Jason Statham vs a prehistoric shark. Good fun and worth watching.

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP

Mid-Credits: Yes, includes Avengers: Infinity War / Untitled Avengers 4 movie tie-in
End-Credits: Yes, just for laughs.
Review: This movie continues on from the first Ant-Man movie and Captain America: Civil War. Definitely more humorous and added character development. Fun to watch.

Where it all begins...

Well, this is awkward. I've been a movie fanatic for years, (Followed Marvel when they cast released Robert Downey Jr in Iron Man back in 2008, the brilliant Dark Knight Trilogy, The Lord of the Rings/Hobbit trilogies, Insidious trilogies etc). But never thought about doing this, and save people all this time and trouble. 

I'm pretty much like the majority of the cinema-goers out there (I think). I work during the week and then want to relax during the days off. Buy my own tickets, including for friends and family, get popcorn or ice cream for the longer movies and just enjoy the movie. I frequent the cinema quite regularly.

I get annoyed just like the next person when people show up and fool around, with no interest in the movie, indicating that they obviously have NOT bought their own ticket's or are very bad with money (Spend everything the moment they earn it)! 

I'm a very patient guy, and like a variety of movie genres. I also like to remain at the end of a movie in case there are after credit scenes to help determine if we should expect more movies in the future, or possible tie-ins (Thank you Marvel). After watching Godzilla (2014), I did not see any after credit scenes, and then when Kong: Skull Island (2017) was released, the after credit scenes seemed to tie them in.

Having said that, I struggle to find on the internet where we can find a website to tell us whether we should stay for these mid-credit / end credit scenes when we are in a rush or just want a straight forward “should I stay / shouldn't I stay?" situation without the need to keep reading through content before arriving at the answer, or finding out there was no answer to begin with.

For intent and purposes here, I will try to bridge this gap by giving notifications of when to expect an update on said movie, whether it has an after credit's scene worth waiting for, and my brief thoughts on the movie itself. If it seems too brief, then I have just exited the screen after watching the movie and you can expect a more detailed update within 24 hours, hopefully to the point as soon as possible.

So basically, I do the hard work for you (always looking at and for positives) which I hope calms your nerves and lets you enjoy the movie, or avoid it if you'd like me to go that far (Fantastic Four reboot, I'm looking at you!). I’ll add my thoughts on upcoming future movies as well, in case things get confusing regarding the altered storytelling, if any.

So, here goes...
