Logan Vs Deadpool: Two Vastly Different R Rated Comic Book Movies

The last 18 months has seen two mainstream comic book movies released in theaters with an R rating: Deadpool in February of 2016, and Logan in March of 2017. Although Batman Vs Superman has an R rated cut, it wasn't released that way originally (though it probably should have been) so I'm not going to include that in this post, instead …

Thought Of The Day: Do We Need A Trailer For Another Star Wars Movie?

Let's be honest; you already know whether you're going to watch the next Star Wars movie, and the one after that, so do you really need to see a trailer before watching the movie? I ask this after steadfastly avoiding the first trailer and teaser images for The Last Jedi  - which is why you'll notice there's no poster …

A Short, Spoiler Free Review Of Beauty And The Beast

Although I'm not going to spoil the movie, I'm going to assume that if you care enough to read this review then you've either seen the original animated feature, or you know the essence of the story at the very least, so I'm really not going to delve into that aspect of the movie too …

Underrated: Fantastic Four (The 2015 Movie)

How Movies Teach Manhood

I came across this Ted Talk from 2012 (I think) in which Colin Stokes explores the impact of media on kids and the importance of positive female and male characters; characters who show the value of teamwork and respecting women. He urges us to seek out movies and TV shows that defy gender stereotypes and shares an …

Thought Of The Day: I Finally Saw Fantastic 4…

And honestly? It wasn't horrible. It certainly wasn't great, far from it, but I think this film fell under the online onslaught that was almost entirely based on the pre-release news and rumours. The movie never stood a chance. It was doomed to fail long before the opening credits rolled. That said, I did press play expecting …
