Review – Dark Phoenix (2019)

by Kevin Muller

In the year 2000, the first X-Men dropped and showed us that it was possible to create a comic book movie that felt real, while containing the themes of alienation and prejudice. All these modern day super-hero films, from The Dark Knight films to Marvel’s vast cinematic library, owes a great amount of gratitude to what director Bryan Singer brought to that film. This will be the last time we see these characters under the control of 20th Century Fox. Disney, which owns Marvel, merged with the company and now have control of the mutants, so it is only a matter of time until we see a reboot of the story and its characters. For their final go with the property, Fox have decided to adapt the ever popular Dark Phoenix saga again. They touched upon it in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, with mixed results. Does this film improve on it?

Review – Mother! (2017)

by Kevin Muller

Forget everything you have seen or heard about this film. Don’t seek out any spoilers or explanations about the film either. This is probably the most controversial studio film to be released in an extremely long time. People always complain that there is no originality in Hollywood anymore, well, it is time to put up or shut up. You may not like this one, but you can’t say it is like anything you’ve seen before. Even as a movie critic, it is an extremely hard one to review without giving it all away.

Review – Mother (2017)

by Old King Clancy

This is going be a difficult film to talk about without spoilers, so if I let anything slip, I apologize in advance. Truthfully though you should have already seen Mother! before reading this review because it’s a film worth knowing as little about it as possible before going in. That way you can hate it on your own terms because trust me, this will piss a LOT of people off! But if you’re into weird, creepy stuff like me, you might love it.

Review – X-Men: Apocalypse

by Kevin Muller

You have to hand it to the “X-men” franchise.  Not only is it still going strong, 16 years after the first film, but it was the jumping point for many of the comic book blockbusters we all admire today.   Christopher Nolan, who directed ‘The Dark Knight Trilogy”, has stated that he was influenced by the way Bryan Singer, this film’s director, and the director of the 2000 original film, grounded everything from the look to the themes into reality.  Singer followed it up with the equally worthy “X2” before departing and giving the reigns to Brett Ratner.   The general consensus of Ratner’s film was that it was garbage so when Singer was announced to come back and helm 2014’s “X-men: Days of Future Past,” fans rejoiced.   That film was a triumph both with fans and financially.   The amazing thing that Singer achieved was erasing everything that happened in Ratner’s film and his own, to create a new time line through the element of time travel.  This now gives him the ability to recast the roles that were made famous by other actors without anyone batting an eye.

Review: X-Men Apocalypse

by Old King Clancy

The X-Men Franchise might be one of the most successful and influential comic-book series around but it’s also one of the most inconsistent with all nine of its entries ranging from great to mediocre to downright terrible. Following on from the awful Origins, the franchise seemed to find its feet again with First Class, followed by the even better Days Of Future Past, but like the original trilogy, the 3rd film is always the weakest and Apocalypse suffers from being an enjoyable yet overstuffed third album.
