Review: Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2

I’ve been awaiting the release of Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 with bated breath ever since the first one ended and announced we’d be getting a sequel in 2017. I went to go see it yesterday – one of the perks of living in Europe; you get to see the MCU movies earlier than most.

Review: Edge of Winter

Tom Holland has been on my radar since I saw the Impossible and I was utterly entranced by his performance as the oldest son in this movie based on a true story. I enjoyed his portrayal of Spider-Man/Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War as well; the MCU finally has found an actor who embodies both sides to this superhero! So, deciding that I wanted to see more of Tom Holland’s work before Spider-Man: Homecoming would hit theatres, I looked up some of his other work. Edge of Winter was the first movie that caught my eye.

Review: Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is the MCU’s first movie that deals with straight up magic. I must admit I knew very little about Doctor Strange, except that his name was Stephen Strange (name-drop in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and that he was a doctor. I was very excited for this one, and also a little nervous. The trailers looked good, and the promo pictures of Benedict were great, but there was also a lot of outrage about Tilda Swinton playing The Ancient One. But I put all of my preconceived notions aside as I stepped into the theatre.

Review: Warcraft

I’ve never played any of the WOW games, though they did always kind of peaked my interest. I honestly don’t know why I never took the next step and try one, but the truth is that I didn’t. I’d heard stories about a Warcraft movie being made here and there, but it wasn’t until I saw the trailer that I was convinced I had to go see it.

Review: Captain America 3: Civil War

I went to see this movie on the 30th of April and it’s at times like these that I’m glad I write short spoiler-free reviews and don’t dive deeply in themes and such, because for this movie all that I could delve into is my sea of tears. This movie was so hyped, and I was so hyped for this movie, and it lived up to it. This movie was all I wanted it to be, and it broke my heart just as I feared it would.

Review: The Jungle Book

I’d heard about a live-action/CGI-version of The Jungle book coming out ever since the reports from the last Comic Con came out somewhere last year, I think, but I admit I was sceptical. I remember thinking that instead of rehashing old stuff, and making live-action movies out of animated movies, Disney should focus only on making new stuff. This movie would never be good. And then the trailers started coming out, and I found myself intrigued despite myself.
