    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★

    I love the idea of the Star Wars spin-off movies. The Star Wars universe is such a vast and intriguing world full of interesting planets waiting to be explored and such a deep history ready to be told. We’ve only scraped the surface of this universe.

    I really enjoyed Rogue One and felt that it complimented A New Hope beautifully. What I really enjoyed is how it followed new characters that we'd never met before, yet there were those familiar…

  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★★

    Well this is it! 10 years and 18 movies have led to this very point.

    I have followed the Marvel Cinematic Universe from the very start and enjoyed how the characters, stories and infinity stones have been cleverly interwoven across all movies; and enjoyed how the universe has grown and expanded to unrivalled proportions.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    ★★★½

    Admittedly, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was not a film I was highly anticipating. I enjoyed Jurassic World (a lot more than most, it seems), but I’ve always found this franchise to be quite hit-and-miss and the trailers just didn’t do much for me.

    I must say, I was moderately surprised by how much fun I had with this film. I think going in with low expectations definitely helped.

    It’s most definitely a film of two halves and I much preferred…

    I wish I had this movie in my life when I was preparing to come out the closet.

    Watched in 4D - I turned on the electric fan on the highest setting. Intense!

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    ★★★★★

    I can’t remember how old I was when I was first introduced to Star Wars; my stepdad taped it off the Sci-Fi Channel sometime in the early 90’s and encouraged me to watch it. I think I was too young to fully appreciate it at first but it was after seeing The Empire Strikes Back another year later that I truly began to adore the franchise. I didn’t see Return of the Jedi for some years later so I spent…
