    Us

    ★★★★½

    Double Vision.
    Jordan Peele is back with his second feature as writer/director with the harrowing 'Us'.
    A worthy successor to Get Out, this is filled with the social commentary you'd expect but also the slick and masterful signature that Peele leaves on all his work.
    Going more of a pure horror route, Us can be interpreted in many different ways with an unsettling tone and tension from the first scene.
    Where the whole cast does an excellent job - the…

    Captain Marvel

    ★★★½

    I'm the Captain Now.
    Throwing back to the 90's Captain Marvel is a cheesy and entertaining galactic adventure that acts as a solid origin story for the next phase of Marvel Studios master plan.
    The highlight of the film for me was definitely Brie Larson. She brings such a fresh energy to the role and I can't wait to see more from her in future films. I loved the chemistry between Larson & L. Jackson, Hollywood - Make a buddy cop…

    You've Become Part of a Bigger Universe, You Just Don't Know it Yet.
    When Iron Man was released I was 9 years old.
    Since 2008, Marvel Studios has been a big part of my life and played a big part in my interest of cinema.
    11 years later, I find myself in the biggest IMAX I can find watching an Infinity War and Endgame double bill.
    Whatever Marvel goes onto, this is the beginning of the end of this chapter…

    ★★★

    Smells Like Kree Spirit.
    A lighthearted palate cleanser, Captain Marvel is an empowering watch though it does fall into the realm of a 'by the books' origin story that we have seen a million times before.
    The opening 30 minutes feel very generic but the film picks up when Carol arrives on Earth. The story behind discovering who she is and the learnings she makes about the Skrulls, Kree and herself keep you compelled finishing with an explosive and exciting…

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    With Great Power...
    Believe the Hype.
    Spider-Verse is one of the finest animations I have ever seen and has instantly shot to one of my favourite films of the year. I have never seen a film like it.
    Every so often one of those films comes along that feels like it's made for you. The comic book vibrant pop-art style animation, multiverses, superheros and the quick-witted humour that Lord & Miller nail so well, made for me - a cinematic experience…

    Thor: Ragnarok

    ★★★★

    The Revolution Has Begun.
    The Thor franchise gets completely reinvented by Taika Waititi in Ragnarok.
    Learning from the mistakes of the past, Thor goes from dark, dingy and grey to bright, energetic and colourful and I think it's truly what the series needed.
    The only downside is when watching them so close together, there is a noticable and sudden shift in tone and it feels very jarring. The jokes, although mostly funny, are so laugh a minute that it gets…
