No matter how crazy the outside world might seem to be, the sanctity of the cinema always provides a refuge. It has been much needed this past month and I expect it will continue to be for the foreseeable future. It helps that the content on screen has been strong this year too, and what initially seemed like a tricky year admissions wise, has so far offered pleasant surprises at regular intervals.

August is deep into summer school holidays and although another superhero film has filled the slot occupied by Fantastic Four last year, the casting and trailers for DC Comics' Suicide Squad makes it clear that another Fantastic Four-style disappointment is not on the cards, and it could easily eclipse Batman V Superman to become the DC film 2016 is remembered for.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier - The Review

Roger Crow | Posted 27.05.2014 | UK Entertainment
Roger Crow

It certainly ticks all the boxes when it comes to epic set pieces and impressive visuals. Alas, after a while I tired of the blurry hand-to-hand combat, and was a little bored during the third act, which felt too much like the deafening heli-carrier battle from Avengers Assemble.

The Beginning of the End for the Superhero Film

Matt Clough

Excluding The Avengers, only Iron Man has been granted a second and third film, with Thor getting his second outing later this year, but if Marvel's latest recruits are anything to go by, they're already reaching the bottom of the barrel in terms of big names with the traction to carry their own series.

Chris Kerr possesses an air of watchfulness, borne perhaps from looking out into Berwick Street from the cutting board which sits at the front of his Soho shop. The spectacles he wears are of heavy acetate, the navy suit fitted with little give, the whole look rounded off by black brogues and a metal watch.

Oliver Warren

He wooed me with Buffy, committed to me with Angel and broke my heart with Firefly. Garnering the kind of devotion that you can only create by pumping yourself twice weekly into the homes of geeks, gays and feminists, Joss Whedon knows how to make a fanboy (or girl) out of anyone.

No Love for the British Superhero

Thom Atkinson

We have our own Captain Britain. Created by British born comic book writer, Chris Claremont in 1976 and designed to uphold British laws in the same way Captain America held up the US moral highground, our own super-saviour (real name Brian Braddock) has never really been taken to the nation's heart.
