    The Avengers 2012

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 18 Apr, 2015

    Mr. Whedon... Thank you. You pulled it off. A film with such high expectations and jam packed with iconic characters all begging for screen time was always going to be difficult to manage. Whedon juggles the characters well squeezing just enough story for each and every one of them. With so much happening and a phenomenal pace it also somehow managed to not feel rushed or throw away. Everything had purpose and built on the story. The comedy elements were…

It's tense, fast paced and full to the brim with enough action and bullets to take down a small country. It has…

    A superb creation. Matthew Vaughn brings the previously little known comic book "Kick-Ass" to life on the big screen, and boy does he do a fantastic job. Kick-Ass follows the story of Dave Lizewski who's had enough of the bullies and takes matters into his own hands - becoming the wet suit clad hero Kick-Ass. The story is detailed with some excellent links to a huge number of films and comics. We are introduced to a host of great characters…
