I’m going to be honest here. I can’t review this movie. I just can’t without spoiling the hell out of it, and I want everyone to see this movie and experience every gut-punch and every triumph. Just know that once the movie ended, everyone in the movie theater sat in stunned silence. That is all you need to know. Go see this movie.
I went to see Black Panther on the 16th, after being excited for it from the day Marvel announced they were making the movie. I was not disappointed.
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). So I’ve been looking forward to Thor: Ragnarok from the moment the movie was announced. Even before I’d seen the impressive cast list, or the first few visuals.
I wanted to see Atomic Blonde on my birthday, but unfortunately there was only one showing, and that one started pretty late. So I decided to take my mum and little sister to the cinema the next day instead.
Though I never saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes, I did see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and absolutely fell in love. There was no way I was going to miss out on War of the Planet of the Apes. I went to see it last night.
To be fair, I was never truly into Spider-Man. I’ve only seen the first two Toby Maguire movies, which were fine, I guess, but nothing mind-blowing. They mostly made me wonder why Peter looked way older than a high school kid. And the trailers for the Andrew Garfield ones just never drew me in.
Logan. God, I’ve been excited for this movie ever since I heard about it being made, and every single titbit that came out about it before the trailer came out kept that excitement at the same level.
