Today we greet with trepidation, the reboot of the first family of Marvel, The Fantastic Four. Tim Story brought them to the screen ten years ago and followed it up in 2007 with a slightly better outing which as the title suggested, introduced the Silver Surfer. But they were cheesy and disappointing, produced at the… Continue reading FANT4STIC IN CINEMAS NOW

2014 DIRECTOR: James Gunn May Contain Spoilers! A couple of years ago, it sounded crazy. The distance between Iron Man and the clearly Star Wars inspired Guardians Of The Galaxy seemed to be infinite, but here we are. As a comic book movie fan rather than a comic book fan, it's harder for me to accept… Continue reading GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (3D)

2015 DIRECTOR: Joss Whedon Contains Spoilers CINEMA REVIEW The Marvel Universe comes together again for the second mash-up of this decade, with Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

X-MEN (600th REVIEW!)

2000 DIRECTOR: Bryan Singer 600th REVIEW! May Contain Spoilers! Following the success of Blade (1998), which is often overlooked as the beginning of the comic book and particularly the Marvel revival of the 2000's, Bryan Singer took a stab at one of their most popular and creatively lucrative properties, X-Men.

2003 - Theatrical Version 2003/2004 - Extended Version DIRECTOR: Mark Steven Johnson May Contain Spoilers! 2003 was a year in which Marvel was coming into its own, or so it thought. This year saw Ang Lee's Hulk, Bryan Singer's X2 and Mark Steven Johnson's Daredevil, as fans waited with bated breath for the sequel to 2002 Marvel smash, Spider-man.… Continue reading DAREDEVIL

2007 DIRECTOR: Tim Story May Contain Spoilers! Back for round two, Tim Story returns to the less that 'blockbusting' Fantastic Four franchise. The emphasis here, is on the Silver Surfer, who is up against the eponymous Four as he is working for Galactus, who intends to eat the Earth. The group exchange powers throughout as the Surfer has this… Continue reading FANTASTIC 4: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER

2012 DIRECTOR: Marc Webb May Contain Spoilers! Is five years long enough for a reboot? Did Sam Raimi's trilogy need rebooting? No, not really, besides the bloated third instalment but I think that a lot of this comes from the age of Toby Maguire, and the obvious eventual involvement for Spidy in the ever evolving Avengers project. Let's face… Continue reading THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (3D)
