All my *spoiler-heavy* thoughts about Avengers: Endgame

Last week I published a spoiler-free review of Avengers: Endgame because that was the decent thing to do. But I struggled to avoid the spoilers because there are so many of them throughout the film and I had so many things I wanted to talk about but couldn’t! Now that opening weekend is over I feel like it’s now time for me to get it all out. Needless to say, spoilers ahead.

Avengers: Endgame – Film Review

Where do I even start with this review?! My mind has been reeling since I watched Avengers: Endgame a few hours ago – there is so much to process and I honestly feel like my brain has been unable to retain everything that happened! But what I do know is that I came away from it satisfied, impressed and very emotional. It’s the end of an era, man!

Wind River: Film Review 

I love Elizabeth Olsen, I think she is excellent in every role (especially in indies) and she didn’t disappoint in Wind River, a riveting murder mystery.

The 2017 Cannes Film Festival kicked off yesterday, and as always I’m filled with envy that I’m not there, watching the stars hit the red carpet and seeing the premiere of all these potentially amazing films.

Arrival: Film Review

amy

This isn’t the first time we have seen alien invasion movies where people try to figure a language or a way to communicate with them, such as Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T., but this is probably the closest and most detailed look at the challenge and it feels refreshing, thanks to brilliant directing from Denis Villeneuve and a wonderful performance by Amy Adams.

Jason Bourne: Film Review

bourne1

I loved the original Bourne trilogy but I never really felt like it needed more instalments so I wasn’t particularly excited for Jason Bourne because it seemed like a cash grab as the stories had pretty much wrapped up with 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum. And while it doesn’t really add anything new to the franchise, Jason Bourne is still a worthy film that reaches the same standard as the originals.

I couldn’t access Captain America: Civil premiere cos of silly wristbands

I previously attended both the Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron premieres at London’s Westfield shopping centre and I had no problem entering the fans pens even though I arrived after work between 3-4pm the day of. I had hoped this would be the same for Captain America: Civil War premiere – but I was wrong, you had to have wristbands, and this is so disappointing.

Today I attended the London press conference for Captain America: Civil War featuring such a large panel that they couldn’t use the usual table and microphone set up and have to stagger them over two levels with lounge chairs! We have (deep breath), from left to right, above: Producer Kevin Feige, Elizabeth Olsen, Daniel Bruhl, Sebastian Stan (hidden), Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey, Jr., Anthony Russo, Paul Bettany, Joe Russo and Emily VanCamp.
