BiYkLLZIgAARR7y
I just fell in love.
Is it possible to marry a film?
Siri, please wipe my tears.

Theodore works for Star-Lord, apparently.
Please let me be his Mrs. Twombly.
I like future Los Angeles.

Scarlett’s sultry tones are magnetic.
Kudos to you moving aside, Samantha Morton.
That surrogate shit be cray.

Get excited about future games.
That little cartoon dude begs for abuse.
Everybody loves Mr. Adam Spiegel.

Here’s to Oscar-winning Spike Jonze.
And dedicatees Yauch, Savides, Sendak and Gandolfini.
Don’t go humping the fridge.

VERDICT: 5/5

Hell, go and see Wreck-It Ralph an extra five times just to ensure you’re completely cleansed of all I Give It A Year and Hitchcock’s dirty, dirty residue.

Wreck-It Ralph, I Give It A Year and Hitchcock are all released in UK cinemas tomorrow.

Review: The Avengers (2012)

DIRECTOR: Joss Whedon.

CAST: Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, Stellan Skarsgard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Paul Bettany (voice).

SYNOPSIS: When the fate of the Earth is threatened by Loki (Hiddleston) and his alien army, Nick Fury (Jackson) and Agent Coulson (Gregg) have no choice but to form a team of superheroes whose combined powers are the only hope of saving the world from disaster.

With the anticipation and excitement circling The Avengers enough to send anyone into an Asgardian-induced coma, hopes were pinned on the master of the supernatural supersquads to rule supreme over previous Marvel outings. Writing alongside long serving comic adaptation alumni Zak Penn, Whedon weaves an impressive patchwork where every player gets their moment in the sun and feels important to those who favour them. As soon as Whedon sounds the introductory ringside bell, he doesn’t give you a chance to breathe. Continue reading

Closer Look: The Avengers – Russian Trailer

Ok ladies and gents, it’s time to introduce you to a new contributor to the site. Everybody say hello to Scott (check out his blog here). I felt it was time for a bit of testosterone around these parts, plus I don’t know much when it comes to comics and graphic novels. As they’re normally pretty massive and big budget affairs, I thought they deserved a little more indepth analysis. And this is where Scott comes in. So, it’s time to hand you over to Scott and his thoughts on the new, Russian trailer for The Avengers: Continue reading
