(trailer review) - Black Adam

  (Teaser Trailer) I was not really a fan of the first teaser for this movie, but this comic-con one is soo much better. The last one, the music was not great and I just didn't like it. There is more action in this one, albeit, short, but it seems to be a lot better and I do like the tone. Before I was a little concerned about where the movie takes place, but I no longer care as I just want to enjoy the movie. This trailer is a better showcase of Black Adam and gives us a little of his pain. If done correctly, this film will need to bring the audience to the understanding of who Black Adam is and why he does what he does with maybe some tear moments. This movie seems a little like a revenge movie and Dr. Fate is trying to recruit him to do good, but Black Adam is not here for. It would be interested to watch this movie and see if we can spot some cameos. I am just hoping WB do not pull a Sony and Eff this ass.

(trailer review) - Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

  If you know what happened to the acting Legend Chadwick Boseman, then you will already know that 1. The director Ryan Coogler had a heck of a task before him..and 2. Marvel's Kevin Feige had a heck of a choice to make. For those who do not know, Chadwick Boseman acted and starred as the titular character Black Panther whilst battling stage 4 Cancer. Chadwick told nobody of this and carried out his acting roles in Marvel movies and other movies for years before succumbing to the disease. Chadwick was such a great actor who left us with an iconic portrayal of the character that Marvel have decided NOT to recast T'Challa. Whislt I have heard some rumours going forward for the movie, we will have to see how this movie pans out. There will be some who would like to see someone recast as T'Challa and there are some who will say not to have him recast and let Shuri, T'Challa's sister played by Letitia Wright to play Black Panther  like in the comics. Chadwick was a great

(trailer review) - John Wick: Chapter 4

You know the expression "...opening up a can of worms", THIS entire franchise is exactly that. In case you are unaware with how this all began and the story soo far (I could be off as it has been a while, so spoilers if you have not seen any of the John Wick movies especially the first one). John Wick is minding his own business when a guy compliments his car and wants to buy it. After refusing, said car is stolen and John Wicks dog is killed.  Not to go into how much the dog means to John but John is an ex-assassin and he seeks revenge on the person who killed his dog. That was Chapter 1. This is Chapter 4. To say this film does exactly what it says on the tin is an understatement. This film is simply a revenge film which has spiralled soo out of control, we are on the fourth film and it looks epic. There are elements to this which are almost nonsensical, but the world they have built for this movie, is incredible. The close quarters fights. The close quarters fights that in

(trailer review) - I Am Groot

  So ummm, although I knew about this I do feel like this was sprung on me. Am I in the loop anymore? Am I not bothered? Comicon is currently on and while I know a lot of movies will have trailers and there will also be a lot of announcements, I just was not expecting this one for whatever reason, although I was well aware of this coming out. Maybe it was soo low on my Radar, I was expecting the bigger shows and movies rather than this. For a character whose vocabulary is only 3 words, this trailer was fun, cute and charming so I would be interested in these shorts and how well they may be. I am sure there is a storyline here somewhere too, but if not, who cares? It is Groot being Groot and who does not love Groot? I am just hoping there is enough of Groot saying "I am Groot" that does not grow stale too quickly.

(film review) - Thor: Love and Thunder

From the 3 O.G Marvel Cinematic Universe heroes we know and love, Thor is the only one to receive a 4th movie, starring Chris Hemsworth and continuing from all the story-arcs that came before. With that said, Thor is the only person, currently, who may have another two movies to come and prove to be one of the only people from the Avengers team that may go on for a few more years until he is old and grey seeing in and out various new members of the Avengers team, whilst he continues doing his thing like the Asgardian warrior he is. But at the end of the day, does Thor and his adventures do anything for you after Endgame? Do you even like this movie? Should you like this movie? What does this movie do for the MCU? And was this movie necessary for the advancement of the franchise? The last two are somewhat the same question, but let me answer this for you. After the events of Endgame, Thor went off with the Guardians of the Galaxy on a reflection and self discovery mission. After many ba
