(film review) - Captain America: Civil War

So, I've been telling a friend of mine that you need to watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier as it is the best stand-alone Marvel movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date.  I did explain that you would need to watch Captain America: The First Avenger and then Avengers: Assemble to understand Cap's growth from his first film to his second.  His third film, now coming after Avengers: Age of Ultron , the Russo's have done nothing but another superb job. Captain America: Civil War is a film that has a story which spins off of several story plots and events from various movies which came before it.  It is another Avengers Movie.  It is another Captain America Movie.  And it is a set up movie to help set up the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) along with introducing two brand new character's along with juggling a story, action and screen time for 13 of our heroes and 2 and a half villains. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and the rest of the Avenge

(film review) - Bastille Day

When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I couldn't get my head past the annoying accents.  It looked like another British made film where the plot was half-hearted, pitched to be something Hollywood worthy but the budget always said otherwise and frankly, a pile of sh*t.  Although most of these ran true, I must admit, it wasn't a pile of sh*t.  I have seen worst, trust me. A con-artist, Micahel Mason (Richard Madden) who comits different types of frauds and is also a specialist at picking pockets, is currently living in France and one night he purposely pinches a bag with a bomb in it belong to a woman named Zoe (Charlotte Le Bon).  Unknowing of the bomb and the danger, after not finding anything of any value or interest to him, Michael disgards the bag but unfortunately blows up an area in France.  Whilst activists and terrorist groups are plotting attacks on the city and with an upcoming protest on Bastille Day, Michael gets caught in the middle of it all as the CIA

(film review) - Friend Request

There are plenty of horror movies out there and to me, they are all basically crap.  I've never really cared for these small movies as they are a run-of-the-mill and are never really anything great, but a few sneaky ones do slip through.  Do you remember Saw? It came out in 2004 and made for $1.2m and made a Box Office of $103.9m.  Do you remember The Grudge? Also 2004 and made for $10m and made a Box Office of $187.2m.  Do you remember The Ring? A little further back, 2002 and made for $48m and made a Box Office of $249.3m.  In case you do not see it, the point I am making is that, these type of films are made for a little bit of money and can make soo much money back, hence the reason why we get soo many of these films. Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey) is a very popular girl at college she has 800 friends on Facebook and she enjoys life with her friends and family.  However, one day, a girl named Marina ( Liesl Ahlers ) sends her a friend request on Facebook in hopes to becoming b

(film review) - 10 Cloverfield Lane

The word Cloverfield packs quite a punch.  I mean, a film produced by J.J. Abrams in which, for the most part, not a single person knew what the film was about and I remember when I first saw it in the cinema, I was still confused at the end.  I hadn't a clue as to what was going on, how it happened and why.  That was 8 years ago.  Now, we have another film with the word 'Cloverfield' in it and AGAIN, once I left the cinema, I hadn't a clue as to what was going on, how it happened and why.  Is tis great directing or sloppiness? 10 Cloverfield Lane revolves around a woman, Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winestead) who gets into an accident and wakes up in an underground bunker.  She is joined by Emmett (John Gallagher, Jr.) and the owner of the bunker, Howard (John Goodman).  The world outside the bunker is believed to be unsafe, told through stories told by Howard and Emmett and although Howard is holding these two people in his bunker to help keep them safe from the out
