‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ is actually pretty good (Spoiler-Free)

Solo: A Star Wars Story is quite good. Yeah, there it is. I said it. It’s not half bad. It’s a film with some heart to it, at least compared to the safe-as-houses ‘The Force Awakens’ and the cool but slightly characterless ‘Rogue one’. Alden Ehrenreich is everything I could have expected from a young Han […]

Javier’s spoiler filled review of Deadpool 2!!

Earlier, when I wrote my first impressions, they had to be kept short to prevent spoiling certain plot points within the movie. So here goes my SPOILER-filled review. Please do NOT read on if you don’t want big plot points spoiled for you! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Javier’s thoughts on Deadpool 2

I’m fresh out of the cinema and I thought I’d just write a quick non spoiler review on Deadpool 2. No story spoilers here but there are a few comments on characters. So beware!

Josef Kills the MCU – Spider-Man: Homecoming

Although Guardians Vol.2 was my favourite movie in the MCU, Spider-Man will always be my favourite comic book character. He is one of the most wholesome and joyful characters ever. I’d also say it’s fair to call him Marvels top character in their roster. In terms of comic book characters, DC owns the most known […]

Josef Kills the MCU – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2

Oh god you guys this is it. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 is one of my favourite movies of all time. It is also in my opinion the best MCU film. I mean Infinity War could be better, but RIGHT now it’s the best. The first movie to feature these characters was such an unexpected […]

Josef Kills the MCU – Doctor Strange

I’m going to be honest from the start of this, Doctor Strange changed the MCU. Not only did it introduce a brand new concept in the form of magic, but it opened more possibilities. Within in the space of a single movie we were introduced to time travel and sorcerers on Earth. Anyone who knows […]

Josef Kills the MCU – Captain America: Civil War

God dammit Feige why did you have to make my two favourites fight each other! Yes that’s right ladies and gents we have officially kicked off Phase three. This for me is the peak of Marvel and has some of the best movies. There are a few that divide the audience, but alas I love […]

Josef Kills the MCU – Ant-Man

We are now at the end of phase two! There’s not exactly going to be a gigantic blockbuster this time, but there will be a lot of fun. Ant-Man is one of those films that you enjoy when you see it. Then you forget about it for a bit, but whenever you re-watch, you probably […]

Josef Kills the MCU – Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron in theory should be a gigantic conclusion to the second phase of the MCU. However, it’s not even the last film in the phase. An interesting fact before we start is that this movie actually came out 3 years ago today! Crazy how much time flies, I remember exactly where I […]

Josef Kills the MCU – Guardians of the Galaxy

Now this is a movie I did not expect to love so much. Before this, the Guardians were a C-list comedy team of sorts. They weren’t even on the same scale as the X-Men or Avengers. I mean when you tell people you’re making a movie with a walking tree and a talking raccoon it […]

Josef Kills the MCU – Captain America: The Winter Soldier

While we got off to a bad start to phase 2 in 2013. 2014 would be the year of absolute classics. This year we would get The Winter Solider and Guardians of the Galaxy. One of these are usually at the top of someone’s MCU ranking list and it’s easy to see why. Today we […]

Josef Kills the MCU – Thor: The Dark World

Aww man, phase 2 didn’t have a great start did it. While I don’t think there’s an absolutely terrible Marvel movie, there are definitely some bad ones. Thor: The Dark World is one that a lot of people will mention as the worst. Saying it’s the worst doesn’t make it a terrible movie, it means […]

Josef Kills the MCU – Iron Man 3

Phase 2 is in full swing! Overall my feelings on this phase as a whole is pretty mixed. There was some bad eggs in phase 1 but there were also greats like Iron Man and Avengers. There’s something similar going on again in this phase with some movies that strike out as great and others […]

Josef Kills the MCU – Avengers

Well here we are guys, we made it to the end of phase 1. It’s nostalgic and quite amazing to be at this point in the MCU. With Infinity War just over a week away it makes this movie feel so small in scale. However at the time the idea of having Iron Man, Thor […]

Josef Kills the MCU – Captain America: The First Avenger

Well we’ve made it to the last Phase 1 origin story. It’s been a lot of fun remembering where these characters came from. Despite my distaste for Iron Man 2 and Hulk, the main 3 Avengers get great introductions. Captain America was one I was more interested in than Thor, yet still didn’t compare to […]

Josef Kills the MCU – Thor

Yes I know we skipped Sunday, but I was busy eating Yorkshire Puddings and finishing phase 1 of the MCU. If you remember, we last covered Iron Man 2, the first sequel. At the end was a tease for a more out of world superhero, the mighty Thor. When this movie originally came out though […]

Josef Kills the MCU – Iron Man 2

Now I’ve spent the last two movies talking about Iron Man, Tony Stark, and my dying love for Robert Downy Jr. However, Iron Man 2 does not live up to the huge expectations I had after that perfect origin story. We’re not dealing with a bad film here, unlike Hulk it actually manages to keep […]

Josef Kills the MCU – The Incredible Hulk

While I previously optimistic and excited about this journey I have to lay this on the table. I do not like The Incredible Hulk very much. While the character grew better with time after a literal face lift, I can’t deny that this movie is overall very underwhelming. Coming off of Iron Man, this feels […]
