Jessica Jones – Season 3 Review

Jessica Jones S3

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…

Spider-Man: Far From Home Review

Spiderman Far From Home

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 Overall Review

AoShield S6

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…

Avengers: Endgame Review

Avengers Endgame

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!

The Punisher – Season 2 Overall Review

punisher s2

The Punisher’s second season was less focused than the first, and told a less compelling story, but it has to be said that it was still fun to watch. Ben Barnes’ Billy Russo was believably crazy and The Punisher is still an interestingly broken character himself. Let’s take a closer look at the series overall, then…

The Punisher – Season 2 Episodes 5 – 9 Review

punisher s2 p2

The Punisher’s second season continues onward with two plotlines starting to merge together.  It’s got some brutal action and some uncomfortably great acting from our lead duo of Frank Castle and Billy Russo. While it’s not quite up to the first season, which had a more interesting plot by now, but still good TV. Let’s take a closer look…

The Punisher – Season 2 Episodes 1 – 4 Review

punisher s2 p1

The Punisher’s first season took me by surprise, as I was expecting the usual over-the-top action and violence that you get with the character, but I also got a reserved, broken version of Frank Castle and a really interesting and well-written look as PTSD. Season 2 so far has started to fall back into line with what I originally expected from the show, but the MCU version of Jigsaw is looking to be very interesting indeed…
