  • Avengers: Age Of Ultron

    Movie Review | Matt Looker | 21st April 2015

    For how much longer can superhero films rule the box office? Everyone's waiting for comic-book movies to implode, and while it probably won't happen with one disastrous misfire that has a big Comic Sans 'Ker-dunk!' hanging overhead, this second Avengers assembly would seem like the logical start of a more gradual decline. After all, genre fatigue is already setting in, and The Avengers' USP - superhero all-stars teaming up for one mega-big movie - is no longer a fresh, never-before-seen idea. Just in terms of living up to the sheer excitement levels of its predecessors, Avengers: Age Of Ultron would already seem like a failure.

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    Movie Review | Matt Looker | 19th March 2014

    Just like Stan Lee releases those How To Draw Your Favourite Superhero books, complete with crudely sketched circles and squares that somehow become awesome comic-book artwork in just four 'easy' steps, it is becoming increasingly clear that Marvel is working to a very strictly defined template with its movies. Almost like they've all been storyboarded for years in advance. (*glances at comic collection*) OH.

  • Avengers Assemble

    Movie Review | Matt | 20th April 2012

    It's only been four years since Samuel L Jackson teased his way into the end of Tony Stark's movie like a fan-wetting afterthought, but it seems like anticipation for The Avengers has been setting the Internet a-buzz for far longer. Perhaps this is because, since the comic-book genre gained credibility again, we've all been waiting for the ultimate superhero crossover movie. With Avengers Assemble, we get just that - four superhero leads meeting up for one mega-blockbuster movie in a way that has never been seen before. As a result, it is the ultimate summer event movie. It also happens to be Marvel's masterpiece.

  • New Avengers banners likely to cause aggro in Liverpool

    Movie News | Ali | 19th November 2011

    Two brand new character banners for The Avengers have emerged, and don't worry, Scarlett Johansson's arse is featured as prominently as possible. Something tells me, though, that this campaign could be considered aggressive in Merseyside.

  • Never assemble Avengers individually

  • Captain America: The First Avenger

    Movie Review | Ali | 22nd July 2011

    Even next to Thor, a movie about a space god with a magic hammer, Captain America: The First Avenger was always going to be one of Marvel's trickiest properties to do justice to. Here's what amounts to my review, in musical form.
