Diana lives the normal life among mortals in the 80s : she maintains her low profile by curating ancient artifacts, and only performing heroic acts incognito : but after the magical Dreamstone goes missing Diana will have to come out from the shadows to save the world we know from the greed and cunning of Max Lord and the evil Cheetah : WW84 sees it’s director Patty Jenkins reunite with stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine for yet another round of insanely seductive superhero fun that may lack the 80s vibe I was hoping for but delivers everything else from it’s Lasso twirling energy, the enthralling Themyscira games that open up proceedings, the robbery at the mall is a hoot, Diana & Steve’s off the chart chemistry and the emotion it carries, Hans Zimmer’s thunderous score, THAT Golden Armor, Pedro Pascal’s crazy villain reminding me of Donner’s Lex Luthor and a spicey turn by Kristen Wigg as Barbara Minerva, bringing shy and ditzy to her character with screen owning brilliance : WW84 may not be quite as good as it’s trailblazing and much loved original but for me Patty Jenkins has delivered another bold spectacle that’s bright, infectious and hugely exciting to watch ★★★★
Although I think Daniel Craig has been one of our weaker 007’s I’ve still really enjoyed his gritty, mostly dark take on our favourite secret agent and NO TIME TO DIE could end up being his best outing yet…. Firstly it’s directed by True Detective helmer Cary Joji Fukunaga and yes he’s also the filmmaker who brought us the brilliant Beasts of No Nation, he’s accompanied by the super talent DP Linus Sandgren (La La Land & First Man) so as a spectacle the film is sure to look bloody awesome : No Time To Die also sees the return of Christoph Waltz as Blofeld and the delightful Léa Seydoux as Dr. Swann but for me the most interesting duo to be cast is Lashana Lynch who plays a female 00 agent that’s shrouded in a little bit of mystery and the gorgeous Ana de Armas who plays a character called Paloma….. are you excited yet? Well if your not then it may be worth mentioning that the main villain of No Time To Die will be played by Rami Malek and the legend that is Hans Zimmer will be providing the film score…. still not impressed? Well I’ve tried…. check out the action packed trailer below and then start a James Bond rewatch and countdown the days until the film hit’s your local theater….
“Holy Dawn of Justice Batman”
From its bone crunching score by Hans Zimmer & Junkie XL that pounds the screen lending to the movies dark atmosphere, Ben Affleck’s definitive turn as Batman filling the screen with great presence and authority, the sizzling introduction of Gal Gadot’s lasso twirling Wonder Woman Gadot not only gives the character her beauty but looks a handful in a scrap, a much improved showing by Henry Cavill as Superman and Jesse Eisenberg’s manic, scene stealing craze Lex Luthor – BATMAN vs SUPERMAN Dawn of Justice is so much FUN, this is Zack Snyder’s love letter to all fans of the comic book universe and to those who have grown up loving these characters, it’s truly one of the boldest, darkest most deliciously fun superhero movie for many a year, jam packed with emotion Dawn of Justice is an immersive ride that’s totally bonkers from start to finish – if you allow it to this slice of escapism will tickle your senses and deliver a great night at the cinema – just sit back and enjoy ★★★★½
