I love The Thick of It and In the Loop (review) so when I found out that Armando Iannucci made a movie about Soviet Russia–and you know me, I studied Soviet Russian history and all–I just had to watch it.
T’Challa, the King of Wakanda, rises to the throne in the isolated, technologically advanced African nation, but his claim is challenged by a vengeful outsider who was a childhood victim of T’Challa’s father’s mistake.
At last, I got around to watching Black Panther (funnily enough on the same day as Spider-man: Homecoming; talk about different movies tonally) right before I went on vacation, lol. How I did that whilst packing and taking care of other things, I don’t know. But here we are. And, as always, SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the movie yet!
Okay, so this is the third iteration of Spider-Man and granted I was not initially interested in watching because it’s been through how many versions. I watched the Tobey Maguire version, never saw Andrew Garfield’s version (meant to get around to it but just never did). And of course I grew up with the weekday afternoon cartoon. So when I watched him appear in civil war, I thought to make it a point to check out his solo outing and after watching Infinity War, I finally did. SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the movie yet!
Squeezing this review post quickly before my hiatus post goes up tomorrow 😉 But yes, I took my whole family to watch this movie (yesterday, actually!) since we’ve watched almost all of the Marvel movies to date (well, except Spider-Man: Homecoming and Black Panther. Need to get a move on those). 10 years in the making, yeah, you can say I was psyched for this movie even though I knew it would be devastating. Suffice to say: Super major massive SPOILERS if you haven’t watched the movie (or are not caught up with the MCU movies to date (more or less))!
Thor is imprisoned on the planet Sakaar, and must race against time to return to Asgard and stop Ragnarök, the destruction of his world, which is at the hands of the powerful and ruthless villain Hela.
