Before the Review: Coronavirus continues to dominate the news, impacting people’s lives. Moving on, a deal was “struck” at COP26 to reduce coal usage (predominantly) to a gradual phase out by 2030 although it was met with opposition along with oil producers, more accusations of sleaze continue against some members of the Conservative Party, cases continues to rise in the UK by 20%, over 50 million have received the first Coronavirus dose whilst over 46 million have received a second dose as well as 12 million receiving the third dose/booster jab and pay per mile scheme being considered by the government to generate more revenue as more drivers turn to greener solutions which doesn’t really seem to encourage people to swap their more polluting vehicles... * facepalm*

Review: Did you ever think you’d see Back Adam, Wonder Woman and Deadpool in one movie? Well, this is probably as close you’ll probably get, although we have yet to see Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam movie yet. Ryan Reynolds as the funny guy really played into the character, I thought his introduction was humorous and intelligent, something you don’t usually see in a movie. Well, not since Evan Peters outing as Pietro Maximoff in the rescue sequences. Worth a watch, if you don’t mind thcliché type endings. Expect a sequel given the way the movie ended.

Before the Review: Coronavirus continues to dominate the news, impacting people’s lives. Moving on, many world leaders at COP26 agree to use less fossil fuels whilst turning more towards greener options, 44% of experts allege that Brexit is/will harm the UK economy, cases continues to rise as another lockdown looms, over 50 million have received the first Coronavirus dose whilst over 45 million have received a second dose as well as 10 million receiving the third dose/booster jab and modified “luxury” car drivers seem to think filtering at more than 50mph on 30mph speed limit roads is acceptable as long as they just pay the speeding fines with no consequences... * facepalm*

Review: An intriguing story where humans travel into space to search for habitable worlds as the Earth begins to become uninhabitable.  Suddenly they come across a planet orbiting a black hole and TARS... Wait a minute, that was Interstellar, which was eerily similar to 2001: A Space Odyssey. However, a lot of patience is needed for this movie as it tries to tell a story in large segments with very little to no dialogue. It is age classified as “U”, but personally, it should be higher.

I had heard so much about the movie, and seen it so highly ranked, but I have never seen it. And now, I’m kind of annoyed I didn’t see it sooner. I’m used to evil machines in The Terminator movies (Skynet/Legion), The Matrix, Oblivion (the Tet) etc, but to see more or less the original source of where the idea came from, was quite inspiring (Not to mention parodies). The movie is definitely worth a watch and being an adaptation multiple sources, sequels are to be expected, hopefully without affecting the original.
