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!

Thor: Ragnarok – Film Review

I liked the first two Thor movies; they were fine, they did the job, etc etc, but they didn’t leave me particularly enthusiastic about a third instalment so I didn’t think Thor: Ragnarok was necessary. I wasn’t even that excited for it. But I should have been because it is the best Thor so far and one of the strongest outings in the MCU.

My top ten films of 2016

civil-min

Welcome back, folks! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas break. Now is the time to look back over the year in film releases and pick my favourites. These are restricted to films released in the U.K. in 2016 – so it may include films I actually saw in late 2015 and although I desperately wanted to put La La Land, Hacksaw Ridge, Lion and Free Fire on this list, they aren’t out until 2017, so unfortunately they don’t make the cut.

Now You See Me 2: Film Review

I was a big fan of Now You See Me so I was very happy when this sequel was announced. I love Dave Franco, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo, and Morgan Freeman individually, so having them all together in a movie is the dream. So two helpings are even better – especially with the addition of more favourites Lizzy Caplan and Daniel Radcliffe.

Spotlight: Film Review

I had heard brilliant things about Spotlight and Oscar nominations are hard to ignore so my expectations were high, but this still manages to substantially exceed them. I was totally blown away but this unbelievably true story.

A new month and year is rapidly approaching and January brings with it an amazing selection of new films. The month always seems to be filled with stellar movies and Oscar bait and this one is no exception. We also have a lot of movies that have been out in the US for a while so I can’t wait to finally see them. Here are my picks:

Highlights from the Avengers: Age of Ultron press conference

 

L-R: Elizabeth Olsen, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Paul Bettany.

I was very lucky that I managed to go to the Avengers: Age of Ultron press conference in London on Tuesday as well as the premiere and although they did say a few interesting nuggets of information, I found it more interesting to watch their behaviour because they all get on so well together.

They were all fun and making jokes, usually to one another like they would on set. One of the actors would crack a joke and they would all chime in and go off topic. When the moderator asked director Joss Whedon if that’s how they are on set, he replied, “No, some of them are paying attention (here)”. So you can only imagine what filming must have been like!

Avengers: Age of Ultron Film Review

avengers3

I was on such a hype for Avengers: Age of Ultron and while it did deliver the goods, I was not thinking ‘this is f**king awesome!’ throughout like I did the first one.  I am being quite harsh – in regular film standards, this was amazing and so enjoyable but I just loved the first Avengers so much that I left feeling ever-so-slightly deflated.
