Review Thor: Ragnarok

It’s no surprise to anyone who knows me that Iron Man is my favourite MCU character. And if I look at the Avengers, Bruce Banner/Hulk and Thor, son of Odin, are tied at second place. There’s just something about that lovable blonde doofus that resonates with me. It helps that he has a very interesting dynamic with his sibling(s).

Review: War for the Planet of the Apes

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.
