Thor (2011)

🌟🌟🌟 The powerful but arrogant god Thor is cast out of Asgard to live amongst humans in Midgard (Earth), where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders. So the only one of The Avengers who doesn’t get an origin story since he already is a superhero (well maybe not hero) from the beginning.  Thor’s […]

Iron Man 2 (2010)

🌟🌟🌟🌟 With the world now aware of his identity as Iron Man, Tony Stark must contend with both his declining health and a vengeful mad man with ties to his father’s legacy. I’m confused … wasn’t the plot of the first film based around a bloke from an enemy country of the United States trying […]

The Incredible Hulk (2008)

🌟🌟🌟½ Bruce Banner, a scientist on the run from the U.S. Government, must find a cure for the monster he turns into, whenever he loses his temper. So I didn’t know much going into this film other than it’s the Marvel film that no one likes to speak about much.  The little I did know […]

Iron Man (2008)

🌟🌟🌟🌟 After being held captive in an Afghan cave, billionaire engineer Tony Stark creates a unique weaponized suit of armor to fight evil. The main reason it has taken me so long to explore the Marvel Universe properly (I’ve watched The Avengers 1 + 2 out of context) is the need to (mostly) watch films […]

Conviction (2016): 1×13 – Past, Prologue & What’s to Come

🌟🌟🌟🌟 Hayes revisits a case from her days as an attorney. What better time now that I’m on a Hayley Atwell run to finish off the one outstanding episode from her short-lived turn as a lawyer. I enjoyed this show in no small part because of the chemistry between Hayes Morrison and Conner Wallace.  It’s […]

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

🌟🌟🌟🌟½ Steve Rogers, a rejected military soldier transforms into Captain America after taking a dose of a “Super-Soldier serum”. But being Captain America comes at a price as he attempts to take down a war monger and a terrorist organization. Out of all the Marvel films I have yet to watch this is the one […]

Flashpoint Season 4

I started watching this show during the last summer hiatus and pressed the pause button when the 2016/2017 TV season started but coming back to this after almost a year was like coming back to the embrace of an awesome crime-fighting family (why oh why didn’t I try out this show when it was still […]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

🌟🌟 When New York is put under siege by Oscorp, it is up to Spider-Man to save the city he swore to protect as well as his loved ones. I would like the past 2 and a half hours of my life back please. Peter is indecisive and spends the whole film with a perpetual […]

Crossing the Line (Cross Creek #2) by Kimberly Kincaid (2017)

Cocky farmer Eli Cross plays twice as hard as he works. When his latest stunt drums up a heap of negative PR for the family farm, he grudgingly agrees to play host to an ambitious New York City photographer. Her feature on Cross Creek could be just the ticket to show the country what the […]

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

🌟🌟🌟 After Peter Parker is bitten by a genetically altered spider, he gains newfound, spider-like powers and ventures out to solve the mystery of his parent’s mysterious death. Here’s something funny …. I spent yesterday evening watching this film and it was only when I went to rate it on imdb that I realised I […]
