    Hawkeye is the latest MCU Disney show, it is directed by Rhys Thomas and stars Jeremy Renner, Hailee Steinfied, Florence Pugh, Vera Farminga and many more. 

    The series is all about Clint Barton and Kate Bishop shooting a few arrows and trying to avoid becoming targets, as Clint Barton faces consequences for the events that unfolded during Avengers End game. 

    I enjoyed this marvel series, I would however say it is my least favourite series, as I do not care…

  • Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    ★★★

    Ghost Busters afterlife was released recently in cinema and was directed by Jason Reitman, who is the son too Ivan Reitman (the director for the original ghost busters). This movie uses references to that original film therefore I recommend watching the original movie before this one, unfortunately I was one of those who didn’t see the originals before watching this movie. 

    This movie is all about a family who move houses and realise that they have a connection to the…

  • Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

    Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

    ★★★

    Scott Pilgrim vs the world is a comedy, action and romance movie directed by Edgar Write, so I had high expectations going into the movie, unfortunately I was slightly disappointed.

    The movie is all about a boy named Scott who falls in love instantly after meeting Ramona, however he…

  • There Will Be Blood

    There Will Be Blood

    ★★★

    There will be blood was released in 2007 and is directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. His work behind the camera is excellent with some great shots, and cinematography of the landscape in particular. This movie is full of fantastic actors but of course Daniel Day Lewis and Paul Deano give outstanding performances, deserving of many awards. 

    Daniel day Lewis gives a sublime performance, he suits this role perfectly, and both he and Paul deliver so much emotion, and that creates…

  • Aquaman

    Aquaman

    ★★★

    Aquaman was released in 2018, and the next film released after Justice league in the DCEU. The movie is directed by James Wann, and I was suprised by this before going into the movie, I was extremely apprehensive about how this mainly horror director would approach an action, super hero movie. I think he did a good job, and I was especially impressed by the visuals and the cinematography in this movie, it was beautiful to watch, from the ocean…

  • Eternals

    Eternals

    ★★★

    The Eternals is the latest movie in the ever growing MCU franchise, despite being so many films, this one is very unique and still offers variety in some aspects compared to the rest of the MCU. The movie introduces us to multiple new characters, known as (you guessed it)….. the Eternals. This movie has a really good cast, with the likes of Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Salma Hayek, Don Lee and many more. Richard Madden is my favourite out of…

  • Don't Listen

    Don't Listen

    ★★★

    Don’t Listen is a Spanish horror movie, released in 2020. I knew nothing about this movie, the director (Angel Gomez Hernandez) or any of the actors (Ana Fernandez Garcia, Lucas Blas, Rondolf Sancho). This movie is on Netflix and is actually quite an entertaining horror movie. There was a few good scares throughout the movie, and the story is quite good.

     The movie is all about a young boy who is told to do things by a possession, this sounds…
