Logan Review (2017)

Rated R (for extreme violence, language and brief nudity) Ever since Hugh Jackman hit the big time as Wolverine in 2000’s X-Men he has become inseparable from the character. In fact one could say that the success of his depiction helped launch the entire comic book movie craze we see today. Now, 17 years and…

Doctor Strange (2016)

Rated PG-13 (for violence and action) The juggernaut that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is a money making machine that doesn’t look like it has an end in sight.

The great cast coupled with story-lines that delved into themes of brotherhood, discrimination and…

Deadpool (2016)

Rated R (for strong violence and language throughout, sexual content and graphic nudity) Deadpool has always been a bit of an anomaly in the comic book world.

Fantastic Four (2015)

Rated PG-13 (sci-fi action violence, and language) Boy oh boy. The buzz on the interwebs was never very good for this movie. With all the rumours of the erratic behaviour of director Josh Trank during the filming of the film, and the numerous re-shoots that were said to have been done to fix the movie,…
