Well, the dust has settled, and Avengers: Infinity War has just crossed the $2 billion mark worldwide. So I think it’s safe to have a spoiler-filled reflection on one of the few films I’ve watched twice at the cinema in the past few years (the other one was The Greatest Showman…the second viewing was the singalong version! And I had the time of my life!). I loved Infinity War (click here to read my review!), so it’s time for me to discuss why I loved it in-depth (and also explore a few niggles with the film!). Don’t read on if you haven’t seen Infinity War! Continue reading

What’s Wrong With Star Wars Fans?
Kelly Marie Tran, the actress who played Rose Tico, has removed herself from Instagram. This was allegedly due to consistent harassment from haters of The Last Jedi. Whether or not the haters are the reason Tran removed herself from Instagram, it’s been documented that Tran has been the subject of racist/sexist abuse since The Last Jedi was released. Is it because she was involved in a film that destroyed the childhoods of many a Star Wars fan? Or are some Star Wars fans simply racist/sexist?
Spoiler-Filled Thoughts About Solo: A Star Wars Story
If you’ve read my review, you’ll know I didn’t care for Solo: A Star Wars Story (click here to read my review!). I’ve not really cared for any Disney Star Wars film apart from The Force Awakens (and that’s purely because my nostalgia glands were begging to be tickled!). Both Rogue One and Solo seemed pretty pointless to me. But many people have enjoyed both Star Wars spin-offs. Is it just me? Let’s talk about it…
Ideas For Star Wars Spin Offs: Episode III
The second Star Wars spin-off will be with us soon. Yes, Solo: A Star Wars Story will tell us everything we needed to know about a young Han Solo (well, probably apart from his conception. This is Disney we are talking about!). Also rumoured to happen is a film about the lost years of Obi-Wan Kenobi. I can’t imagine that will be interesting, can you? An aging man watching a young boy grow up from afar? Not exactly a family film! I’ve already wrote about some wacky ideas for Star Wars spin-offs, but as Solo: A Star Wars story is fast approaching, I’d thought I’d add some more wacky Star Wars spin-off ideas for your reading pleasure!

Marvel Cinematic Universe Films Ranked From Worst To Best!
Well, with Avengers: Infinity War out now, I think it’s time to rank the MCU library! Ten years ago, Iron Man kicked off the massive franchise, and since then we’ve had nineteen films! Yes, nineteen films in the most successful franchise in history (I’m basing that solely on my own thinking! Surely it must be?). They’ve ranged from fantasy, to WWII drama, to sci fi opera, to political thriller…and have ranged from great to god awful. So here’s my (definitive?) ranking of the MCU library… Continue reading
Random Film Thoughts: Solo: A Star Wars Story-What’s The Point?
So, there’s four months until Solo: A Star Wars Story comes out…and all we have are a few photographs and a synopsis! Yes, that’s right: no trailers, no footage, nothing. The second Star Wars spin-off has had some difficulties (like getting rid of the original directors four months after they started filming the thing!). The new director, Ron Howard, has had a lot on his plate. What will come of Solo: A Star Wars Story? All we have for now is the synopsis. It’s furthered even more my belief that the Solo spin-off in pointless! Continue reading
What I Thought of My Top 10 Most Anticipated Films of 2017
Last year, I wrote a list of my Top 10 Most Anticipated Films of 2017. Here are my verdicts of those Top 10 Films! I missed two out of ten films, but apparently I didn’t miss much! Oh, if I’d known Darren Aronofsky would be putting out a film in 2017, mother! would be high on this list! But that knowledge passed me by. Continue reading
My Top 10 Most Anticipated Films of 2018 (In The U.K!)
Happy New Year everyone! New Year’s Resolutions? What are those? Well, I have a wedding to plan this year…so most of my resolutions revolve around that big event! However, I do want to put a lot more effort into this blog. I am quite lazy, and recently purchased a Wii U/had a NES Mini purchased for me. So my laziness has increased, largely thanks to Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild! But I will try my utmost to post something everyday on this blog…starting today, the first day of the year!

Spoiler Filled Thoughts On The Last Jedi (And Why It Disappointed Me)
WARNING: SPOILERS FOR THE LAST JEDI (2017)
I’m ready for a second viewing of The Last Jedi. It may be one of those movies I appreciate more on a repeat watch. In my review of it (click here to read it!), I didn’t delve into spoilers, as that’s unfair on people who are reading the review but haven’t seen the film. Now, however, it’s time to dive straight into spoiler territory to understand why I disliked the film. Not only for the reader, but for myself as well. Sometimes, you take a dislike to something without knowing why. Not only that, but a lot of the criticism of people who hated The Last Jedi has centred on a few things. People’s legitimate criticisms have been undermined by the film’s defenders. I’ll take a look at those along the way as well. Continue reading
Film Thoughts: Justice League: What Went Wrong?
In my humble opinion, Justice League was the disaster that the DCEU has been waiting to unleash upon us since Man of Steel was released four years ago. It is an awful film with few redeeming features. Even taking into consideration the reshoots and change of director, there’s no excuse for a film this terrible. But what went wrong? Could Justice League have been salvaged along the way? Or was it doomed to be bad? Oh, click here for my full review of Justice League! Continue reading
