Review:  Suddenly those Dominic Toretto "family" memes online start to make sense... There is no Dwayne Johnson in this movie as he’s currently filming DC’s Black Adam? It seems like the feud between him and Vin Diesel continues. The movie now adds Peacemaker, I mean John Cena  into the franchise amongst many twists and turns, whilst also seemingly trying to retcon previous plots to further advance the vision / story of the returning director, Justin Lin. Roman provides the humour whilst Tej rounds off the seeming double act. Lots of action and tie ins from previous movies, although the focus seems to shift from the cars in favour of family and... space? If you’ve seen The Dark Knight movie, one scene here may invoke nostalgia. After the mid-credits scene, it seems that a future instalment is looking to explore “justice” for a returning character

Review:  OK, after watching this movie, it helps if you know your timelines. Black Widow, from my guess, is set towards the end of Captain America: Civil War, has an influence in Avengers: Infinity War and then ends after Avengers: Endgame, although the synopsis may contradict this. There is actually a lot of action in this movie with some characters given a different direction, not that I’m complaining, and the addition of Thaddeus Ross and Valentina Allegra de Fontaine actually works in tying in the MCU and Disney+ shows. The end credits shows that the story will be continued in a future Disney+ show

Review:  Slated to be released as part of Superman: Man of Tomorrow continuity, The Long Halloween Part One serves as an origin story of sorts with some give-aways, like the absence of The World’s Greatest Detective moniker that Batman has become known to be associated with. Some of Batman’s rogues make appearances and others in non speaking capacities, which could hint at future roles. Given that this could become a shared universe, other DC characters may end up making appearances. The movie has a Nolan-equse feel, like Batman Begins. Jensen Ackles, although unsuccessfully not cast as Batman in the DCEU, lends his voice as Bruce Wayne/Batman, hopefully for multiple movies here. Part 2 is expected fall of July 2021

Review:  So like Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Friends started whilst again, I was probably too young to get into any television shows that weren’t aimed towards children, like Power Rangers or anything on Cartoon Network. But eventually, I managed to watch all ten seasons of friends. The reunion special brings together the main cast again, with James Corden as the host, whilst there are some revelations along the way. If you have time, give it a watch as some people have said that they got emotional during some segments. I have to warn you though, like myself, there was no meaningful appearance of Scott Lang... I mean Paul Rudd which had me scratching my head

Review: Cosmic Sin seemed like another Star Trek copy. There are certain scenes that could be argued were stolen from the rebooted Star Trek, however I’m more concerned that a character billed as one of the main draws for the movie had very little screen time and characters with more screen time were merely supporting actors whilst actors with the biggest influences are absent from visual marketing? Maybe the 3% rating is justified, but time will tell. The movie itself stems from a decent premise, but is seemingly all over the place. Maybe the movie would better off as being adapted for television rather than movie theatres?

Review: Well, ever since The Dark Knight trilogy, Christopher Nolan movies have always piqued my interest. Tenet is no different, given that it took Christopher Nolan over a decade to put together central ideas for the movie. I thought John David Washington was brilliant in the TV show, Ballers and his performance in this movie was no different. Also, Robert Patterson will be suiting up as Batman for the next DC offering movie, The Batman, so it was good to see he hasn’t lost his touch. Aaron Taylor-Johnson can’t seem to keep out of army attire, but a suspenseful scene was triggered and executed brilliantly by him. Slight reference to climate change in the movie (although it could have been intentional) and if the ending is anything to go by, hopefully we will be expecting a sequel for a very interesting concept and idea.

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...?
