Revenge of the slimey T-1000 (Venom review)

Lady Gaga fans have been receiving backlash this week after they allegedly began writing fake Venom reviews to persuade people to instead watch Lady Gaga’s film A Star is Born. I must admit that after seeing both films, I don’t necessarily disagree with them, as I’d much rather people see a genuine masterclass in filmmaking rather than watch this poor messy excuse for a superhero movie.

A Sinister First Look at ‘Joker’ (2019)

Plans (and desires) for a standalone Joker movie have been rife for many years. Those plans will finally be coming to fruition in October of next year when Todd Phillips takes the directing and co-writing job on ‘Joker’ (catchy title). With Joaquin Phoenix’s first make-up test being released, I thought I’d look into what we know about what is already one of the most anticipated films of 2019.

Mr. Mediocre (Incredibles 2 review)

Pixar haven’t had the best track record for sequels. Cars 2 was dreadful, Monsters University lacked suffered in comparison to the original, and Finding Dory was nothing to write home about. Only the Toy Story sequels have managed to do that rare thing of improve on the original. Having loved The Incredibles, I was really, really hoping that this sequel would manage to at least match it. What a shame then to report that The Incredibles 2 doesn’t quite live up to the freshness of the original.

A hilarious sequel that stands on its own baby legs (Deadpool 2 review)

Well, Deadpool 2 has done it. It has joined the rankings of 'Terminator 2', 'The Godfather 2' and 'Shrek 2' for sequels that outshine the original. I always felt the first film wasn’t as groundbreaking as it thought it was, and while entertaining, it lacked enough humour and action to really make it fantastic. Where the first film lost out, this one picks up, and boy did it do a good job of it.
