I'll start with man who started it all Sam Raimi's Spider-man, Tobey Maguire. This film's story has not aged well. Tobey's Peter isn't just a nerd he's a loser. If you forget at any stage don't worry the movie will remind you so you feel extra sorry for him, Flash played by Joe Manganiello starts … Continue reading Homecoming and the Tale of three Spider-men Part 1.
This film is incredibly stylish. A combination of neon graphics and retro pop music, adds a light and fun atmosphere to the film from the get go with an entertaining and brief chase scene. However the grit of the film is also present from the start. The chase ends with a brutal murder and then … Continue reading Atomic Blonde (2017)

It opens with narration from John Huston, who is playing the ape whom gave Dr. Zaius his mantra, the Lawgiver. He is telling children of the tale of how Caesar came to be, and … Continue reading Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973)
So here it is. The film that started the fall, story-wise it resembles a narrative mesh of the first two in the new trilogy, but much like it's predecessors it has its own distinct flavour and it also skips baby Caesar growing up. I will explore that in my review of Rise and Dawn. This … Continue reading Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972)
Baby Driver, as I mention in the podcast, is my number 2 film of 2017, maybe even ever. I'll have to remake that list after this year. I don't know what film can top this one this year but I don't want to give it number 1 just yet, I'd hate to see it move … Continue reading Baby Driver (2017)
