Ant-Man and the Wasp: Film Review

I’m definitely feeling the superhero fatigue – I wasn’t excited about Ant-Man and the Wasp at all, even though I loved the original and his appearance in Captain America: Civil War. It was kinda what I expected though – a lot of fun but ultimately just good. I couldn’t stretch any better than ‘good’.

Ant-Man: Film Review

I have to admit my expectations for Ant-Man were the lowest they have ever been for a Marvel movie.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Film Review

I will be the first to say that these are not my type of films. I watch them because I should rather than because I am genuinely excited for them. To prove my point: I watched The Lord of the Rings trilogy for the first time this year, and I only began The Hobbit prequels this week. However, I am surprised by how much I like them.

It picks up where Desolation of Smaug left off: the dragon has broken out of the Lonely Mountain and is on its way to destroy Laketown. Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) has reclaimed his kingdom but he now has dragon sickness – his greed over the gold has made him crazy and he is on the verge of killing members of the Company to locate the Arkenstone. That is not their only problem – both the people of Laketown (lead by Bard, played by Luke Evans) and the Woodland Elves (lead by Thranduil, played by Lee Pace) want their share of the riches inside the mountain and Oakenshield refuses to let a single gold coin leave this kingdom. War is imminent, and an army of Orcs are heading to Erebor to reclaim the mountain for themselves.
