The King’s Man – Bombing like WW1

A film that pinky promised to be the return to form for the Kingsmen series ended up resembling it’s WW1 setting just a little too well: messy, painful and more than a little pointless.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier: Just Short of Greatness

Marvel’s second Disney+ project in as many months produced a solid if not spectacular piece of polished MCU television. It had all the laughs, fights and thrills we’ve come to expect, but perhaps lacked the X factor that has not yet returned from the snap.

A Lockdown Watch: Ready or Not

Ready or Not was much anticipated ahead of its Summer 2019 release, so as we approach a summer of lockdown I gave it a go. Despite some great ideas and intriguing characters, I can’t help but feel it was a fantastic premise that could have been so much more.
