The much anticipated MCU show focusing on the bizarre sitcom antics of Wanda and Vision finally aired over the last two months, and it didn’t disappoint. While slow to start the mystery of just what the hell was going on built up perfectly, whipping myself and many others into a frenzy of online discussion and theories in the days after each episode aired. Did the series stick the landing? Let’s find out!Continue reading
The Incredible Hulk often feels like the “forgotten” MCU movie, given that its rarely released alongside the others or on Disney + due to Universal holding the distribution rights, and that the titular character is played by someone else compared to the rest of the MCU films. That being said it’s still officially apart of the timeline, with several characters appearing or soon to be appearing in other MCU projects, so… let’s take a look!Continue reading
It’s time to have a look at the film that started it all: Iron Man. It’s funny to think back to when this film was announced and I just sort of shrugged, thinking “I enjoyed the cartoon back in the day, and the suits might look cool in live action, if they manage to pull it off.” I didn’t even watch it until it appeared on DVD… Now, in 2021, it’s the movie that kicked off an entire, unique “cinematic universe”, before that catchphrase was a thing. Anyway, how does Iron Man stand up today? Let’s take a look!Continue reading
I thought it was about time I finally watched the first three phases of the MCU in a … well, not a row as in daily or anything, but in order over a month or two. That means I’ll review the MCU films I haven’t reviewed yet while I go! Hooray! (and THAT means I’ll have all of the MCU films up by the end, take that Bond films! … *sigh*) I always start with Captain America before settling into release order, and now more than ever does the film feel like the true start as it mirrors the final scene in Endgame perfectly. Also, and most importantly, the film is really good in its own right! Let’s take a look…Continue reading
Although Season 5 still feels like the actual final season, Season 7 of Agents of SHIELD is at least a marked improvement over 6 and does a good job of basically taking a bunch of characters that have been developed to their natural end and just having a bit of a laugh with them. That’s not to say the series didn’t have its moments of more seriousness, but this did feel like the writers, cast and crew were all just having fun because they found themselves with a seventh season they weren’t really expecting… With that all said, let’s take a look!Continue reading
In the first of a series of… a few reviews that were partially written or had lots of notes in preparation for a review but I never got round to doing it back during the super-busy time, it’s time to look back on Jessica Jones, and indeed the Netflix MCU in general’s, final season. Does the series of series that produced some absolute classics like most of the Daredevil run and the first Jessica Jones season go out with a bang? … Nope. Sadly, it may go out on the worst season of them all…
This one has been a long time coming! I watched this film a month or two back (whenever it was released on that good old fashioned physical media) but beyond a few notes I took to make sure I mention in a review, I haven’t found time to actually review it… until now! The first film in the MCU post-Endgame serves as a good little story, though quite uneven in places I found… Read on for more details!
Agents of SHIELD Season 6 was sort of not meant to happen. The team wrapped up the whole show at the end of Season 5 and wrote off the central character of Phil Coulson. Suddenly they find themselves renewed for two more seasons (though length-wise it’s one season split in half…) and this is what they come up with: Evil Phil Coulson lookalike, ignore the fact that this is supposed to be happening in the MCU, and more space stuff! Does this approach work? Well…
The first season of Runaways was a pleasant surprise to me when I finally sat down to watch it, and thankfully Season 2 kept the momentum going, even if it did slow to a crawl in the middle… Anyway, let’s take a look at Runaways Season 2 overall then!
Well, here we are then. The big finale to a story arc that started 21 films ago, and once again the Russo brothers and the whole team behind the film have somehow pulled it off. They managed to make a film with lots of depth of character, great callbacks to previous entries in the franchise, and then wrap it all up with an extremely satisfying final fight. Excitement, drama, even getting emotional at times… it was a great experience, one I’ll always remember. So without further dancing around spoilers, let’s take a deeper look at the film then!
