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!

Ghost in the Shell: Film Review

Ghost in the Shell, which is based on a Japanese manga series, has been surrounded by whitewashing controversy and so I expected it to be rubbish, like most films mixed up in that kind of backlash, and I lost even more hope when reviews were banned from publication until very close to release. I don’t know if it’s cos of my low expectations or what, but I actually really enjoyed it.

Sing: Film Review

Film Title: Sing

Sing is the perfect combo of many things I love – pop music, The X Factor-style singing competition, Taron Egerton and animated movies – so it was pretty much a given I was gonna love it and I sure did!
