As a huge fan of musical theatre, the moment I heard there would be a new musical movie I was already on the edge of my seat wanting to buy tickets. I then saw Hugh Jackman in the title role and my interest was piqued even more—I, admittedly, am a huge fan of his work. However, due to family commitments I was unable to go to the opening night showing and had to wait to see the movie. As the days went by, I began to think: am I gearing myself up too much for this? We’ve all seen time and time before, an excellent cast does not necessarily mean an excellent movie, and the more excited we are, the harder we fall. I tried to let myself down gently, to not think about the film I was so excited to see, to try and convince myself it would be mediocre at best so that when I’d seen it, it would either let me down a little or raise me up. I needn’t have worried so much. I was squirming with excitement in my seat despite my efforts—and The Greatest Showman (TGS) not only managed to deliver, it blew me away.
Fans of the Hugh Jackman turn as the Wolverine character have seen him appear on screen as the character a total of 9 times so far, and despite the fact that Logan was said to be his final swansong, this may not actually end up being the case, at least that's according to MCU regular, Sebastian Stan.
Don’t get me wrong, I could play as LEGO Star Lord all day, mostly holding the B button to listen to his jams and watch him dance around. Other than that, however, I was unfortunately very disappointed with the latest in the LEGO superhero franchise. I feel it is important to note that I almost always play local co-op, and this game was played through on multiplayer over three days. Why three days? I just didn’t have that “new game urge” – you know the one, where you have a new game and all you want to do is keep playing it all day every day. I have only played the main story, but while I am writing this, my partner is playing solo and exploring the open world of Chronopolis.
The 95-year-old comic legend and cameo star of pretty much every Marvel movie made over the past decade or so has been accused of groping and sexually harassing the nurses who care for him at his home in Los Angeles.
Blade Runner was one of those movies that, for me, existed on my periphery for as long as I can remember but for one reason or another never actually got round to watching. Whenever the film was mentioned by someone else, they would always talk about how great it was, but from the small clips I had seen, I just wasn't massively drawn to it as I probably should have been. That is, until the other night.
You all know him, you all love him, and even if you don't know and love him, his face is bound to be familiar. You see, if you've seen at least one Marvel movie over the last ten years, you will have seen Stan Lee's face pop up at some point or another. The Marvel legend himself, the guy who perhaps embodies comicbook nerddom is literally everywhere, and all the while being one of the nicest guys on the planet.
