Many people in tinsel-town thought that there would be a dip in quality the moment Marvel boss Kevin Feige announced the move to shift minor-Avengers characters onto the silver screen. But as always, Marvel proved them wrong, redefining what can be done on minimal budgets by delivering a fantastic season of the Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The buddy-cop dynamic between Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan is organic and forms the main reason as to why this series has really taken off.

After a nail biting race last weekend, Mortal Kombat and Demon Slayer are at it again. Though, it’s Demon Slayer who takes the crown this time around.
Amazon have released a action packed Teaser Trailer for The Tomorrow War. The movie stars Jurassic World’s and Guardian of the Galaxy’s Chris Pratt. It also stars Yvonne Strahovski, J.K. Simmons, Betty Gilpin, Sam Richardson, Edwin Hodge, Jasmine Mathews, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, and Keith Powers.
The twofold barreled presentations brought about the greatest by and large dramatic meeting since the Covid pandemic started somewhat more than a year prior and are only the furthest down the line sign that crowds may, at last, be prepared to get back to multiplexes following a time of streaming movies at home.
Mortal Kombat is a confusing mess of a movie that does a bad job narratively like any other video game movie. The action can be satisfying at times; Joe Taslim and Hiroyuki Sanada do a phenomenal job with their fighting sequences as well as selling us on their rivalry. Though a more interesting movie would have been how that rivalry got to where it was. They both even manage to deliver the clunky dialogue of the script well. The rest of the cast come across like they’re doing parodies of stupid soap operas.
Chaos Walking is a movie that can get you excited with its premise but disappoint you with its execution. There. I have just reviewed it with one line.
Universal and Netflix released the trailer for the upcoming season of Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous. We see the kids trying to escape the island using a raft but are unsuccessful as a tidal wave brings them back to the island. We also later find out that they have unsuccessful in various attempts to leave the island.
While currently only four films in length, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ Monster Verse has produced four remarkably different visions of giant monsters (or “Titans”) doing battle in the ruins of our major cities. Starting so well with Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla (2014), this shared universe deteriorated with the failure of King of the Monsters. That was not going to stop it though as it reached a whole new level with Godzilla vs Kong. Each film between them has had a different director and a sharply unique aesthetic. So here is my personal subjective and fairly definitive list.
Godzilla vs. Kong is a jaw-dropping spectacle about these two legendry monsters tossing each other through buildings and bonking each other with giant axes and atomic blasts. How can you not love that? It’s big, silly, and action-packed fun brought to life with some of the best CGI works in the business. Although the human aspects and set-up once again disappoint, it doesn’t affect the overall spectacle that this film is. If you were itching to head into the cinema for a blockbuster epic, then your search should be over now.
