The Avengers (2012)

🌟🌟🌟🌟 Earth’s mightiest heroes must come together and learn to fight as a team if they are to stop the mischievous Loki and his alien army from enslaving humanity. So this is the first film in the Marvel Universe that I actually watched a few years ago.  I rated it quite highly considering I hadn’t […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Spotlight: Film Scores

Top 100(ish) Film Score Tracks I can’t tell you how many years I have been wanting to make this post for but every time I sit down to listen to my film score collection, I keep getting distracted halfway through and I lose momentum.  Never mind, here is the epic list, finally. (And yes no […]
