'Guardians of the Galaxy' Review

Visually, Guardians of the Galaxy is a stunner. Colours positively burst from the screen as if from a Pixar movie. The rather saturated Captain America Winter Soldier is positively bland and lifeless compared to the astonishingly vibrant world brought to life in Guardians.

Well, let's have some women (not just men) involved in the creation of it, and then let an audience decide! It's not until we start using and distributing some of the findings of Stephen's report, and others, that anyone will take any notice, and change the status quo.

Guardians of The Galaxy Review

It's one of those films in which every character has their turn as the stand-up, including the villain. There was only one character I felt should have been done differently. Warning: anyone who hasn't seen The Avengers should skip the next paragraph, for the sake of avoiding spoilers.

A fun, action packed, occasionally moving, occasionally filthy live action comic book fantasy. The cast is terrific, Chris Pratt is perfect as the heroic Star Lord, while Zoe Saldana as sexy as ever as the green skinned Gamora.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier - The Review

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 dividing line between toys and video-games has shifted back and forth over the years. Most recently though there has been a blurring of this distinction. Many toys come with technical functions and many video-games are now support by physical play-things -- take Disney Infinity for example.

Our Superheroes Are Getting Too Dark

The darkness in the Superior Spider-Man arc has meant that I've been quietly hiding the comics rather than encouraging my kids to flick through them as I used to. The darkness in Man of Steel means that those same kids will grow up with the Reeve movies rather than the Cavill ones, which is probably cooler anyway.

Thor: The Dark World - The Review

Chris Hemsworth is so perfectly cast as the eponymous Asgardian warrior it's hard to imagine anyone else filling those boots. The slightest smirk creates screen gold. The god of thunder and charisma might be more on the money.

Iron Man 3 - The Blu Ray review

Roger Crow | Posted 14.11.2013 | UK Entertainment

The good news is it loses little on Blu Ray. The uber crisp picture and thunderous soundtrack is well worth a few extra quid, as is the witty yack track by Black and Brit co-writer Drew Pearce.

The Wolverine Review

The first two thirds of James Mangold's movie are a stylish, occasionally thoughtful affair, with our hirsute hero first clashing with generic bad bear hunters, and then being sent East to be reunited with the Japanese officer he saved from nuclear death at Nagasaki.

Why Women Are Vanishing From Blockbuster Movies

Not all heroines are sexualised. Some are just pathetic, and to be honest I can't work out what is more depressing. For example, Lois Lane in Man of Steel is a confident, intelligent journalist. Who falls in love with Superman after approximately two conversations.

I really liked what I saw of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and I can't wait to see more and actually get some hands on with it. From what I did see its a lot of fun, and with around 100 playable characters to choose from everyone should be happy.

Anticipation for Andrew Garfield's The Amazing Spider-Man is tepid, at best. No one's talking about it, it doesn't generate nearly as much hushed excitement as the impending Bat-fest or last month's Promethe-mess (sic).
