I’ve already reviewed Metroid Dread¸ but during that review I attempted to stay away from spoilers. But after ruminating on the game for a week or so after finishing it, I feel I have to talk about Metroid Dread with spoilers aplenty. Metroid Dread is supposed to wrap up the story that began with the original Metroid on the NES, 36 years ago. And its 19 years since the last game in that particular story. The pre-release hype not only centred around the EMMIs, but it centred around the game being the end of the Metroid storyline. So you can’t really talk about Metroid Dread without discussing its story. And you also need to examine whether or not it is s fitting end to the Metroid saga.

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
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…
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
WARNING: SPOILERS FOR IT (2017) and Stephen King’s IT (the book)
Is there something wrong with me? I ask myself that all the time, but more specifically, I’m asking that question in relation to Stephen King’s IT (the recent adaptation of the book!). IT has broken box office records, and the majority of people seem to like it. Some even love it. Why am I among the few who didn’t like it? Did I miss something? I know everyone is entitled to their opinion, but it concerns me when the majority is against me. So here is a spoiler-filled dissection of my feelings about IT. Continue reading
