Comic book artist Steve Ditko was found dead in his New York home this week. Ditko was 90.
After the dark and heavy Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp delivers light-hearted comedic superhero action to MCU fans.
The media juggernaut that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) had humble beginnings in a 1961 comic book created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby – the first issue of Fantastic Four.
As always, I place great important on well-crafted plot and characterisation when reviewing movies. While A Quiet Place has an intriguing premise, the story, unfortunately is illogical.
M. Night Shyamalan’s unlikely sequel to his classic 2000 superhuman film Unbreakable arrives in cinemas in January 2019.
Fourteen years! That’s how long it took director Brad Bird to put together the sequel to Pixar’s animated foray into the superhero genre, The Incredibles.
I must confess that I was pleasantly surprised by this sequel to the billion dollar hit Jurassic World (2015), which I found to be chronically underwhelming. Read my review here.
Before the release of Star Wars (never “A New Hope”) in 1977, there had only been a couple of successful movie franchises viz. James Bond and Planet of the Apes.
After surprising most observers with a worldwide box office of $783 million (against a $58 million budget), it was inevitable that a Deadpool sequel would be produced and fast – within two years!
Ironically, the groundwork for the enormous success of Avengers : Infinity War was laid almost EIGHTY years ago by Marvel’s main comic book rival DC Comics in Justice Society of America.
To be honest I had reservations about Infinity War.
Just booked my tickets for Infinity War, IMAX 3D no less. But my expectations are at an absolute low for superhero films, especially with recent disappointments.
A bit late to this graphic novel but considering the responses to recent geek movies The Shape of Water and Annihilation, the moment seemed appropriate for quick thoughts about Providence.
Sideways is basically your high school superhero comic – the Spider-Man trope.
Thanks to the idiocy of Paramount Pictures, Alex Garland’s Annihilation adaptation was only released in Singapore today via Netflix! Thus, geeks in Singapore are denied the opportunity of watching this imaginative scifi horror movie in all its visual glory. Well, fuck you Paramount!
A third of the way into the 2nd season of the Marvel-Netflix series Jessica Jones, one conclusion becomes unavoidable. The reason that Season 1 worked was down solely to David Tennant’s star turn as Killgrave.
Black Panther‘s astonishing domestic box office numbers for its opening 4-days is $245 million, which actually betters Justice League‘s lifetime US box office of $228 million!
The knives are out for Netflix original films, as far as the critics are concerned. Bright was panned and now Duncan Jones’ Mute suffers the same fate. We demur.
Some scifi movies to consider in the months ahead.
There is much to admire about Black Panther, Marvel’s latest addition to its cinematic universe but in the final analysis, the story is plagued with the usual blockbuster plot holes.
Perhaps the best way to view the maiden season of the fan-divisive (now a regular occurrence) Star Trek series, Discovery is to treat it mainly as the redemptive arc of Michael Burnham, and just leave it at that.
Guillermo Del Toro’s critically acclaimed The Shape of Water is a throwback in more ways than one and yet a touchstone perhaps of things to come.
The first trailer for the upcoming sequel to the thoroughly enjoyable Ant-Man has arrived!
There was a moment – the briefest possibly – where it seemed that the writers/producers behind Discovery were going to reboot the entire series using the escape from the Mirror Universe as the plot device.
Perhaps then Discovery would exist in a reality more aligned to the original series (which is supposedly a decade away from the events depicted so far.
After the shocking reveal in the previous episode concerning Tyler’s outing as Voq, nobody quite expected that fans would get an even bigger twist in “Vaulting Ambition”.
