Onward review “ft. Spider-Man & Star Lord”

Onward movie posterThe last time Pixar released two films in the same year was 2015. The first of their double act ended up being one of their best, Inside Out. A touching, beautifully animated adventure that ranks highly alongside Up, Wall.E and of course the Toy Story series.

Unfortunately, their second effort, The Good Dinosaur was by all accounts, a bit of a mess. Released by any other animation studio, The Good Dinosaur would have been perfectly serviceable, but it lacked the usual Pixar sparkle, despite some incredible animation.

Fast forward five years and Pixar are at it again; releasing two films in the same year. Soul is out in cinemas later in 2020, but our first contender is Onward. But is it up to the standard of Pixar’s classics, or more akin to their forgettable adventures? Continue reading

Spider-Man: Far From Home review “Marvel’s Phase 3 comes to a melancholic end”

Spider-Man: Far From Home posterSpider-Man: Homecoming was one of the biggest surprises in the superhero genre. After the masked web-slinger’s troubled history on the big screen, Marvel intervened and took the story back to basics. With a compelling villain in Michael Keaton’s Vulture, Homecoming shot to the top of many MCU rankings and it’s easy to see why.

Ending Phase Three of the MCU was never going to be easy, especially after the drama of this year’s Avengers: Endgame, but Tom Holland’s Peter Parker has been tasked with tying up all those loose ends. So how does he do? Continue reading

Spider-Man: Homecoming review “The Marvel touch”

Adam Brannon HeadshotThe first thing I’m going to tell you about Spider-Man: Homecoming is that it has been gloriously undersold in its uninspiring trailers and promotional posters. In fact, most of the marketing materials shown made it look like this would be Iron Man 4 ft. Peter Parker. Thankfully that’s not the case.

The second thing I’ll tell you is that Tom Holland’s turn as Peter Parker is very good indeed. But is he better than Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield? Well, for that you’ll have to read on. Continue reading
