Black Panther (2018) Movie Review

Jane Tomato reviews Black Panther for @FilmGob — Don't believe the hype, Black Panther is a stodgy tale of internecine feuding, like Thor but more African looking. An insipid, soulless, and overproduced bore in which the superhero T'Challa doesn't get to do much of the 'jump around beating-up bad guys' thing that Marvel delightfully fed us over the past 10 years. The giddy exuberance is gone, with no Baby Groot in sight. What is here is Michael B Jordan, doing that angry face he does.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE (Spoiler Free Review)

YouTube.com/FilmGob — X-Men: Apocalypse is another fine chapter in a franchise that director Bryan Singer brilliantly set up in 2000, and returned to with the excellent Days of Future Past in 2014. Yes, it may be a CGI-heavy action-adventure but it's bold, effortlessly mixing action, characterisation, social commentary and mythology that we have come to expect from this saga.

REVIEW Captain America: Civil War

*Contains Spoilers* — Political interference in the Avengers' activities causes a rift between former allies Captain America and Iron Man. Politics. Rifts. Allies. That basically sums up this take on Civil War fairly well. And replace 'War' with 'Selfish Disputes'. There's little to sink your teeth into despite marketing "OMG ARE YOU TEAM CAP OR TEAM IRON MAN!?" The end result is Team Neither. Two and half hours of bravado and nobody dies. Oh, except Peggy Carter, she dies from old age. SHOCKING! Captain America: Civil War is not a Captain America film. Fact. Early this week the Russo Bros let slip that they feel Civil War was a reaction to Warner Bros announcing Batman v Superman. And it shows, feeling like just another product off the Disney assembly line: safe, cookie cutter fluff. Considering you all tweet and post MCU related memes, fan theories all year round, there wasn't much point in rewatching previous Marvel films before this release, it's everywhere we go, wether we want it or not. It's not comic book movie fatigue, i'm sick of this middle of the road, stale Marvel Cinematic Universe.
