Avengers: Endgame Review

So here we are, one year later, with Avengers: Endgame. The 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a project the likes of which we have never seen before, primarily due to it not only having to deal with the events of Infinity War but also wrapping up the “Infinity Saga” that has taken place over the past 11 years. So this kind of serves as the world’s most expensive and long season finale.

Dunkirk Review

Dunkirk is unlike any war movie I have ever seen. It's nearly a silent film and features one of the most honest takes on war I have watched on-screen. There is no fluff in Christopher Nolan’s latest masterpiece - it feels genuine, respectful and brutal, without using realistic violence and blood to emphasise the direness of war, and particularly this moment in time at Dunkirk.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2

Set to the backdrop of 'Awesome Mixtape #2,' Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team's adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill's true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes' aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.

Ghost In The Shell

In 1995 Ghost in the Shell directed by Mamoru Oshii and based on the manga by Shirow Masamune was released, since then it's become something a cult anime classic. When I watched the film as a kid, I found it to be a bore, it's deeper questions asked about life and what makes us human was lost on me. Similarly the same year I watched Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, which I also found to be boring and its more minutiae details lost on me. Where both films featured action and cool sci-fi worlds, they asked deeper things of the audience. The 2017 film based on Masamune's manga is none of these things and it's boring to me for all the wrong reasons.
