It’s been a long wait to finally watch Pixar’s Coco, a movie which was released in the US all of three months ago, but boy… was it worth it.
I knew to expect great things – this IS a Pixar film after all, known for its strikingly beautiful animation and in-depth, emotionally driven storytelling. My favourite Pixar movies include the Toy Story trilogy, Inside Out and Up just to name a few, but ever since finally getting to see Coco at the cinema, I think I do indeed have a Continue reading “Movies | ‘Coco’ Review”
It’s the movie everyone has been anticipating for the last couple of years since Episode VII. Sure, we had Rogue One hit cinemas last year, but we all eagerly anticipated what was next in store for newcomers Rey, Finn, BB-8 and pals. However, The Last Jedi is a new chapter that has ultimately divided opinion. Has the hype lived up to it’s multi-billion franchise name?
(I’m writing this review a few weeks after release so I can discuss my opinion on every detail, including spoilers. If you wish to avoid, I suggest you attend the nearest screening, then come straight back here!)
Okay, I’m gonna be serious now. The Last Jedi is my favourite Star Wars film of the whole franchise. Why? Continue reading “Movies | ‘Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi’ Review”
It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of DC Comics. I have several issues old and new in my collection, including some from as far back as the 40s. But I’m not just a fan of the comics – I adore the TV shows, animation, video games, and yes, even the new DCEU movies. Man Of Steel was, in my eyes, a refreshing reboot that incorporated what it is to be a superhero in this day in age. Are they worshipped, or are they feared? Are they a god-sent miracle, or a threat to modern society? Not only did it raise some great points of storytelling, Man Of Steel had plenty of action and origin in equal servings. The follow up sequel, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, just got even better by adding more famous heroes into the mix, as well as even more infamous villains, and an exciting climatic battle. (You can read what I thought of Suicide Squad here, and the more recent Wonder Woman here). So, long story short, I LOVED Justice League. But why, you ask? Well, let me tell you right here… Continue reading “Movies | ‘Justice League’ Review”

“We ALL float down here…”
If you grew up watching all the big cult classics or reading horror fiction, you’ll be more than familiar with that infamous line spoken by Pennywise The Dancing Clown in Stephen King’s IT. When the original 1986 novel was transformed into the successful 1990 television mini-series, it became mainstream pop culture, and the main reason lots of folks now commonly suffer from Coulrophobia (myself included). So, what can we expect from IT awakening from it’s slumber 27 years later? Does IT live up to the sheer terror we experienced through it’s other forms of media? Is IT a shot-for-shot carbon copy, or can we expect something entirely fresh? Continue reading “Movies | ‘IT’ Review | Spoiler Free”

D23 Expo is the one and only official Disney fan convention where all your wildest Disney dreams are made a reality: there’s panels, stalls, museums, celebrity guests, and so much more. But, of course, the most exciting part of it all is official announcements of upcoming movie productions in the House Of Mouse. Today I wanted to share with you all the D23 announcements, my thoughts on them and what I’m personally most excited for in the next coming couple of years; 2017 – 2019!

I love the DCEU movies. I know a lot of people won’t agree with me on that one, and I can understand that up to now they have each been flawed, but there’s nothing quite like watching your favourite superheroes come to life all over again. However, for Diana of Themyscira, Wonder Woman has never had a big screen movie, ever. Until now. Continue reading “Movies | ‘Wonder Woman’ Review | Spoiler Free”
