Review: Lego Ninjago

Review: Lego Ninjago Lego Ninjago was the first Lego movie for me. I wasn’t really sure what to expect as I knew it was a kids movie. With that said, I kept an open mind and was looking forward to the movie as I knew Dave Franco was one of the voice actors. The opening scene was set in real life in an old Asian inspired shop, which shocked me because I thought it would all be animated/CGI since it...

Review: mother!

Review: mother! I walked into mother! knowing absolutely nothing about the film or the director, Darren Aronofsky. All I knew about the film was that it involved Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem as lovers and there were issues. Little did I know that I would watch one of the most stressful films I had ever seen in my life and somehow come out of it loving every minute of it. Why was it so stres...

Holy Sheet, IT Was Horrifyingly Good!

Holy Sheet, IT Was Horrifyingly Good! I want to start off by reminding you that I am not a fan of horror films. Give me an H.P. Lovecraft novel and I’ll read it and re read it a billion times but I just die when it comes to watching scary things come alive on screen. I have never seen any of the classics and especially not the original IT film. I had heard it was fantastic and the book was e...

Pirates Life For Me: Pirates Of The Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales

Pirates Life For Me: Pirates Of The Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales I, like many, am a huge fan of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride. I need to ride it once every five years other wise I decay and then die. Naturally, when the very first Pirates of the Caribbean film released in 2003 I was blown away by the characters and the mythos that surrounded them. As time went on, we received a ...

FreeplayFrenchie Reviews: Doctor Strange

FreeplayFrenchie Reviews: Doctor Strange As we left the Odean cinema last week in Brighton, my friend and I agreed that Doctor Strange could be summed quite politely like this: Inception, but on LSD. That being said, I would say Doctor Strange is much easier to follow, however, the visuals are so stunning that I did warn my Mum it might make her feel sick. I can’t imagine what it would be li...

Top Grossing Movies based off Marvel Comics

Top Grossing Movies based off Marvel Comics Marvel Comics first launched super hero titles in 1961. With these amazing heroes, it is natural that they would become the inspiration for movies as well as casino games on your mobile. Every year, approximately three movies are produced that have a story line based off of Marvel Comics. Part of this trend can be attributed to the proven success of thes...

Will Suicide Squad be more popular than the average superhero movie?

Will Suicide Squad be more popular than the average superhero movie? Like many others, I am very excited for Suicide Squad. This got me thinking…this is a movie about bad guys, and yet some could argue we’re perhaps more enthusiastic than say, the average superhero movie. Granted Suicide Squad is from a beloved comic series, and full of DC characters we can’t wait to see come to ...

The Jungle Book Review

The Jungle Book “Forget about your worries and your strife”   Movies have slowly become a family tradition for me: I have a lot of fond memories driving up to the local Harkins with my Mom and Brother and seeing more movies than I can remember during my 27 years (bloody hell I’m getting old.) This tradition has introduced me to some truly crappy movies (I’m looking at you The Fifth Wave) and some ...

Can The DC Cinematic Universe Benefit From Marvel’s Success?

Can The DC Cinematic Universe Benefit From Marvel’s Success? Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice is just around the corner, and I can’t help but feel excited for it.  I remember, as a kid, watching Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman and Christopher Reeve’s portrayal of Superman back to back and thinking how cool it would be to see a mashup of the two.  This fascination followed me t...

Review: Star Wars – Force Awakens

Review: Star Wars – Force Awakens Ten years have passed since the release of Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith and we are now given Star Wars Episode 7: Force Awakens. Many Star Wars lovers cringe at the memory of seeing the prequels and in turn feared for how any future films would turn out. Thankfully, we got J.J. Abrams, famous for the rebooted Star Trek films, Cloverfield, Lost, S...
