The last film I reviewed was about some punching buddies that punched for a bit and then were buddies. Captain America Civil War is about some buddies that decide to punch for a bit too. Two films with a similar premise in a row. One big difference though… and spoilers for my opinion here… but one of these two films didn’t suck a great big one. Batman V Superman is the film that sucks a giant chode by the way. Captain America 3 is a good film… a REAL good film. So, I’m going to avoid spoilers as I want to write a more detailed thing later on, but do click below to carry on to my full review where I say why Civil War succeeds where Batman V Superman failed miserably.

You know what’s weird? The amount of times characters say the word “weird” in Avengers Age of Ultron. I’m pretty sure everyone gets to say it. Even Ultron. That was weird. Probably one of those Whedonesque things I keep hearing about. Anyway, Avengers: Age of Ultron came out here in the UK today and so I have done my duty unto you and have gone and done seen it. So, some spoilers may be ahead, but nothing too big. I’ll warn you if I’m about to spill something huge. Click the link below and I’ll tell you about how Thor become Lady Thor in the new Avengers film!
I am going to start by saying that I cannot promise I won’t spoil something. I am going to try as hard as humanly possible to not spoil the film though. A fair amount has been shown in trailers already so anything to do with that is fair game as far as I’m concerned, but man… they’ve really made it hard to not mention all the cool stuff that happens in this film. This is… and I’m asking you to brace for hyperbole here… the exact Captain America film my nerd brain has been wanting to see for years. It may be the best film in the Marvel cinematic universe. I can’t decide for sure right now. Click the link below and I’ll try to explain… hopefully without spoiling too much, just why The Winter Soldier is such an excellent comic book movie.
Blah blah blah sportsball. Blah blah blah summer movies. Blah blah blah Captain America. Click the link below.
Don’t do many trailer posts these days but I’m a comic book geek and so I feel compelled to post this one. The Thor 2 trailer hasn’t done a massive amount for me, although I will see it next week, but this trailer is awesome. They clearly understand that Captain America isn’t about supporting the interests of the American Government, regardless of what they are, but more about upholding the core tenants the U.S. was founded on. Some of the best storylines in the comics is when he’s going against his own employers to show what he believes is the true American way of life. This sequel seems to be tapping right into that and it looks like it’ll be doing a better job at showing the conflict between what SHIELD stand for and what they actually do better than the Agents of Shield series is. Anyway, click the link for the trailer and chuck some words in the comments below!
Well isn’t that odd, I’m reviewing two films with the same name one after the other. I hope no-one got confused or thinks I did that on purpose. Just so you know, this review right here is for Marvel’s The Avengers, or Avengers Assemble as they’re calling it here in the UK. Apparently they actually think their core audience is aware of the 60s TV series that my last film review was based on. So I guess if you’ve found your way to this review via a search you’re probably already aware of just how good this film has turned out. Which I guess makes me reviewing it pointless then. Oh well. Bye!
Fine I’ll review it!
Here’s something a little different this week. Instead of the usual random assortment of trailers this week we’re getting around 20 minutes of behind the scenes B-roll footage from The Avengers. Only 2 weeks to go until the summer blockbuster season gets kicked off to a start with Marvels mightiest heroes. I’m keeping an eye out for the trailer to the Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis starring Looper to become available too today so that will be added once I see it. For now, click the link for some Avengers based fun!
