    Black Widow

    Without spoiling anything, I'd say this film's first two acts are the best Marvel has ever been. And it's third act is among the worst third acts in Comic Film history.

  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Everyone is always on about how 'Disney ruined Star Wars', yet in my opinion between TLJ and this, it's put forth two of the best SW films.

    While I do wish we got the film we were initially presented in early trailers, R1 is still a thrilling film from start to finish. It has a tone that is not usually found in SW films and there are some pretty great performances throughout, particularly from Ben Mendelsohn and Alan Tudyk.

    Very solid movie.

  • Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    ★★★★½

    I love ROTS.

    It's action packed, emotionally charged and has this grandiose feeling from start to finish. This is clearly the film Lucas wanted to make the most, and despite some questionable direction here and there, it is without a doubt the best pre-Disney SW film

  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★★

    This film is brilliant.

    Johnson shifts away from the overreliance on bombastic storytelling from past Star Wars films to give audiences a character driven narrative with a very straightforward plot. And it works SO well.

    TLJ is 100% the best Star Wars film in my eyes because of it's differences to the other franchise efforts, but not only that. It's also just a very well made movie, with great performances and a compelling message at it's core.

  • Wonder Woman

    Wonder Woman

    ★★★★★

    On a technical level, Wonder Woman does suffer slightly in it's third act due to a complete shift from a relatively grounded story to one that is clearly set within a world where Gods do battle. But in my opinion, that does not detract from everything else the film does perfectly.

    Gal Gadot puts in a very compelling performance here, due in part to the fact that she has the brilliantly casted Chris Pine there to bounce off of. I…

  • The Dark Knight

    The Dark Knight

    ★★★★★

    It's very easy to say that this film is 'overrated' or to make fun of people who genuinely believe that it is one of the best films of all time just because it's a 'Superhero Movie'.

    To those people, I say take a step back and actually look at what is on display here. Christopher Nolan's direction is at it's best here, we have the award winning performance of Heath Ledger as the Joker with an otherwise stellar cast, a…

  • Mean Girls

    Mean Girls

    ★★★★★

    Mean Girls is, in my opinion, the best film in it's niche and one of the funniest movies of all time. Everyone is cast perfectly, the writing hits perfectly and the comedic mastery on display makes every rewatch even better than the last. This film defined a generation and has never been matched since.

    It's a shame 'Mean Girls 2' was horrendous, and we've never gotten a true follow up to this masterpiece.

  • Ant-Man

    Ant-Man

    ★★★

    This isn't a bad film by any stretch of the imagination. The cast is all great and it had all the MCU goodness you've gotten used to at this stage in the franchise. But that's about it. Ironically, the film about a Superhero who can go really small doesn't do anything big with the formula.

    This is Iron Man, but played for laughs essentially. It does what an origin film needs to do, but doesn't stray from that path. Again,…

  • Iron Man 3

    Iron Man 3

    ★★★½

    Tony Starks arc in this film is by far the standout feature. Seeing a Superhero struggle with anxiety and fear to the point of panic attacks is something that I really appreciate, as too often these things are glossed over or ignored in favor of the 'Boom! Bang! Pow!'. This film is actually quite flawless until - well, I'm sure you can guess.

    If you haven't guessed yet, I'm referring to the "Hah, gotcha" twist of Ben Kingsleys Mandarin being…

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★

    This is just a solid Superhero film. Is it better than any of Rami's Spiderman movies? No. But Tom Holland's Peter Parker has a refreshing innocence and likability that surpasses all who came before him. With a supporting cast of Michael Keaton as the Vulture and R.D.J in his iconic role of Tony Stark, Spider-Man: Homecoming is a fun little romp.

    They really should have named it 'Iron Man Jr' however. The villain is inspired by Iron Man, Spider-Man now…

  • Captain America: The First Avenger

    Captain America: The First Avenger

    ★★★½

    I used to hate this film, and now I quite like it. Its amazing how our tastes can change over time! Captain America: The First Avenger, is the best Superhero origin story in Phase One of the MCU for several reasons, but it's largely because the main cast of Chris Evans as Cap, Sebastian Stan as Bucky, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter and, of course, Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull! The actors are all in top form here and…

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Avengers: Age of Ultron

    ★★★★

    This film had everything it needed to surpass The Avengers (2012). First of all, it had all of the Avengers returning, was coming hot on the heels of two spectacular films in Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and the inspired casting of James Spader as Ultron! Don't get me wrong, this film is still amazing and more than deserving of my four star rating, but there are some problems.

    Joss Whedon clearly wasn't capable of…
