Movie Review - Ant Man

22/07/2015 by Sam Tremayne

You literally have to go out of your way to not know something of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s a billion dollar juggernaut that started Hollywood’s obsession with superhero movies in the last decade, and has crafted its own unique series where all their characters and stories intertwine within the same world. As a result, outcomes of one story can have ramifications for another film, and character development may be furthered a one movie that doesn’t even focus around that particular hero.

Movie Review - Magic Mike XXL

14/07/2015 by Sam Tremayne

As probably the first male in the world to see this film I’ll probably be attacking this review in a much different light to most of the audience. Beating the opening weekends of Sex and the City and The Notebook is Magic Mike’s sequel XXL - marketed heavily on a bunch of ripped and toned strippe… I mean, male entertainers.

The biggest movie star in the world of the 1980’s Arnold Schwarzenegger - so big Microsoft Word even can spell check it for you - starred as its leading man/robot and... it was good.
