Thor: Ragnarok

Thunderous, Apocalyptic, loads of fun – Thor: Ragnarok

So how was Thor: Ragnarok? It was… strange but good.

The early buzz for the third Thor flick by Marvel has been unanimously good, so I did enter the theatre with expectations – I was by no means without skepticism thanks to the previous outings which I found redeemed only by the charismatic performance of Tom Hiddleston as Loki.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Valerian: Star Wars should start sleeping with one eye open

Director/screenwriter Luc Besson excels at creating these vast, quirky, juxtaposed worlds which showcase the wonder of his expansive imagination whilst never forcing us to entirely abandon the familiar. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets certainly has that homely charm wrapped-in-the-spectacular vibe.

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman: Time to stop wondering

The world has waited a long time for Wonder Woman and she’s finally here, ready and willing to pick up the pieces of DC’s fragmented cinematic universe with a film driven by hope and humanity.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

King Arthur, the remix: Legend of the Sword

The legend of King Arthur is a muddling affair. Authors have been telling his story for ages and it’s never the same twice – Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is no different.
