X MenFF
With the Avengers Infinity War trailer now hitting over 100 million views already, the excitement is already building for what is likely to be the biggest ever Marvel Studios movie to date. Let's take a look at what to expect...   The Fox Universe                     With Disney buying out 20 th Century Fox, Marvel Studios now has its full roster of characters to play with. Could Infinity War reset the universe introducing characters such as Wolverine, Doctor Doom, Apocalypse and even Galactus?   The TV Universe The Marvel Netflix Universe and Agents of Shield do exist in the same universe, however will they make an appearance in Infinity War ? It's unlikely but it would be awesome to see The Defenders and the Agents of Shield on the big screen.   Avengers 4? Avengers 4 was meant to be Infinity War...

My Review & Rating

In my opinion, Star Wars The Last Jedi was without doubt and by a mile the greatest Star Wars movie ever and in my top 3 movies of all time. The movie had everything, drama, comedy as well as all out action. With an intense storyline it was a perfect Star Wars movie.

IzzyLFC - 10/10 - "Well Done Disney, Well Done!"

Don's Plum - the Movie That Tobey Maguire and Leo DiCaprio Don't Want You to See

plight-dons-plum


Tobey and Leo
 If you look at at both Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire's movie history, you'll see a movie called Don's Plum that had a VERY limited release in 2001. It was actually filmed in 1996, though. Ironically, it was filmed in black and white so it looks like an older movie. Leo and Tobey filed a lawsuit to make sure this movie was not released to the public. They don't want ANYONE to see it. For me, that heightened my appeal to see it. It took me a long time to find it online since every time a copy becomes available, Leo and/or Tobey's publicists find a way to take it down.        Why are they so adamant to avoid people seeing it? It's not really made clear as to why they want it banned. Even so, the people who watch it can make some guesses. I personally think...

The Disaster Artist Movie Review - Should You See It?!

the-disaster-artist-posters
Tommy and James
The Disaster Artist is definitely worth seeing. It's actually worth seeing more than once (which is what I'm going to do because I loved it so much). I haven't had this much fun in a movie since EVER!   James Franco is a spot-on Tommy Wiseau who plays the character Johnny in The Room and James is amazing when he recreates The Disaster Artist scenes from The Room . Because James Franco put in so much dedication to this role, he is a wonderful Tommy and a wonderful director for the movie in general. He even stayed in Tommy's character when he was directing the movie! That being said, I think in order to really enjoy this movie, you'll have had to see The Room first. Trust me, you will enjoy it!!! I saw it for the first time a year ago and I have probably watched it at least...

Thor Ragnarok Review

ThorRagnarok1
ThorRagnorak3
Our resident teen reviewer IzzyLFC gives his verdict on Marvel's latest movie blockbuster, Thor RagnAron.   Thor Ragnarok is without doubt one of the greatest Marvel movies ever made. It was well balanced with action and humour. Director Taika Waititi creates an unexpected but definite masterpiece.                   Synopsis: Thor is on a mission to prevent Ragnorak, the Asgardian apocoloypse alluded to in previous MCU movies such as Avengers 2. He confronts Surtur the fire giant of Musphelheim, who will play a key role at the end of the movei. Loki has taken over Asgard by impersonating Odin. Eventually the rival siblings find Odin only to realise that the All Father's ancient reign over Asgard is at an end. They encounter Hela the goddess of death and are cast away while she threatens the existence of Asgard and its people. It is up to...

The Top 10 Moments From The Marvel Cinematic Universe

MCU

Thor Ragnarok is less than a month away! How exciting! I'm going to be looking at the top 10 MCU moments ever to hit the big screen...and by the way, no post-credit scenes will be included!

 

10. "The Hand" - Thor the Dark World

ThorHand

This scene was a true shocker and left us with our mouths wide open. It also showed the true brilliance of the character we all love to hate, Loki. After agreeing to work with Thor to face Malekith "The Accursed", he supposedly betrays Thor by slicing his hand off. We are all screaming the word "typical" to Thor's face and calling him gullible for trusting Loki the god of mischief, however what was to come was truly shocking. Loki reveals Thor's hand was just hidden by his trickery and Thor summons Mjolnir just like that.

9. "Dormammu, I've come to bargain!" - Doctor Strange

The scene we all remember from Benedict Cumberbatch's brilliant performance as Doctor Strange. When Strange's greatest foe makes a fantastic appearance, Stephen uses the powers of the time stone to basically annoy the hell out of Dormammu causing him to spare Earth in order to escape the eternal time loop. Memorable and hilarious.

8."Is that the best you can do?" - Avengers Age of Ultron

A triumphant scene for the MCU, showcasing all the Avengers new and old destroying and dismantling Ultron bots around the Vibranium. It showed the true strength and teamwork of the Avengers ending with a typical statement by Thor..."Is that the best you can do". Ultron responds with hundreds, if not thousands more Ultron bots.

7."The Rainbow bridge" - Thor

thor had to destroy the bifrost or rainbow bridge in order to stop lokis powers from destroying the helpless frost giants

Mixed feelings present for this moment occurring in one of the best MCU movies ever. Many things happen when Thor clashes with his mischievous brother Loki, and is forced to protect Earth by destroying the Bifrost. This causes Odin to wake from his sleep and attempt to save what's rest of Loki. A sad ending with falling into the abyss...but that wasn't the last we saw of him!

6."We're the Guardians of the Galaxy" - Guardians of The Galaxy

1487611402221

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Guardians of the Galaxy was an unexpected blockbuster. Who would have thought that an 80's space themed comedic action film would have been so charming? A central theme running through the MCU is the fate of the Infiniti Stones. Starlord and the Guardians risk it all by absorbing the Power Stone and destroy Ronan the accuser saving Xandar from destruction.

5."Bucky?" - Captain America The Winter Soldier

Captain America The Winter Soldier 2014

In my opinion without doubt the greatest action film ever to be made. The second installment of Captain America was titled "The Winter Soldier" which sparked confusion within movie fans but pure excitement for comic book fans. A mysterious assassin to appears to have murdered Director of Shield Nick Fury. His mask is removed on the awesome battle of the highway and is revealed to be Cap's best friend from his WWII days...Bucky! Steve Rodgers is shocked and caught off guard leading to his arrest at the hands of Brock Rumlow AKA Crossbones.

4."I am Iron Man" - Iron Man

maxresdefault 2

The movie that launched the MCU. The origin story of how Tony Stark became Iron Man. This one scene describes billionaire Stark perfectly. Where most superheroes battle to keep their identity a secret, Stark's (in)famous ego means that at a packed press conference he at first denies any involvement with Iron Man, but then stuns the world by declaring straight faced..."I am Iron Man". And thus was born the MCU.

3."I will bathe the star ways with your blood" - Guardians of the Galaxy

ronan ship

The first appearance in an actual movie for the big baddie of the NCU, Thanos!. He shows his true power by frightening the hell out of the feared Ronan. Thanos' look is perfect and is plucked straight from the comic books. After dealing with Ronan like a naughty child, he leaves us with his signature bad boy grin!

2."Avengers Assemble!" - The Avengers

the avengers marvel studios

 

Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye arrive by jet. Thor arrives with his magical hammer Mjolnir. The Hulk leaps his way to action. Finally, Iron man joins the team to face the Chitauri and the Levaiathons. The perfect scene for the Avengers to Aseemble!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1."Underoos" - Captain America Civil War

fd85cd64472974ddd01cd2f024afd56d128aa93ce66dc02ec8e16adefdb0fec5

 

One of my favourite MCU scenes! So much happens! Heroes go toe to toe in mortal battle. Marvel's most iconic character makes his first ever appearance in the MCU...and it doesn't disappoint! Spidey on Team Iron-Man against Cap's Team...iconic!

The Flash Movie Looks For Another New Director

The Flash Movie Looks For Another New Director
Rick Famuyiwa The Flash Banner1
Warner Bros look for their third Director for the Scarlet Speedster. Rick Famuyiwa has left Warner Bros. looking for their third Director for the upcoming Flash movie. Citing creative differences, Famuyiwa released this statement:    "When I was approached by Warner Bros and DC about the possibility of directing The Flash , I was excited about the opportunity to enter this amazing world of characters that I loved growing up, and still do to this day. I was also excited to work with Ezra Miller, who is a phenomenal young actor. I pitched a version of the film in line with my voice, humour and heart. While it's disappointing that we couldn't come together creatively on this project, I remain grateful for the opportunity. I will continue to look for oppportunities to tell stories that speak to fresh generational, topical and multi-cultural point of view. I wish Warner Bros. DC,...

Raimi's Spider-Man - A Look Back After "Homecoming"

Raimi's Spider-Man - A Look Back After "Homecoming"
c6104b3946b8663eb7e13ad22507c945c8b05553
With the introduction of Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the recent box office hit  Homecoming , Geek Genie takes a wistful look back at Sam Raimi's original trilogy of movies in the naughties...starting with  Spider-Man . When a young teenager by the name of Tom Holland appeared in Captain America: Civil War , it was the first time a teenager was depicting a teenage Spider-Man. Toby Maguire, Andrew Garfield and long before him Nicolas Hammond, were all mid to late twenties when they were web spinning so most of fandom were happy that Spider-Man was truly returning to his roots with a physical depiction of Spider-Man more true to the original character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. So how does the Maguire Spider-Man now fit into the cinematic mythos? In terms of continuity, it doesn't exist as Marvel only recently reached an agreement with Sony to...
