Avengers: Infinity War   4/29/18

The huge scope and spectacle of it is both its greatest strength and greatest weakness - while it does succeed in managing multiple plot strands as different characters try to stop Thanos in different ways across the galaxy, and it does successfully give these characters their own emotional beats along the way, it was never going to have quite the same level of character journey as a single-character movie, thats just the nature of it.

The Greatest Showman   2/14/18

The whole premise of the film seems built around the idea that Barnum is creating something fun for the mass that stuffy critics just dont get because they dont know how to have fun and I think the makers of this film firmly believe thats what they are doing with this film.

Theres also a sense that the showy explicitness of this sex scene (and another towards the end of the film) are slightly at odds with the message of the rest of the film.

But if you don't care about any of that and just want to see your favourite comic book characters brought on life on the screen, battling it out and saving the world, there are worse films you could watch.

The Lego Batman Movie   2/21/17

The film is stuffed with references to other Batman movies, superhero movies in general and cameos from other franchises.

And at about this point the film decides it's actually a Stephen King adaptation, and the main focus of the film becomes the telekinetic boy, who is pale and stares a lot, in the way all creepy film children are required to do.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows   12/27/11
by Thursday Next
This is not to suggest that it's the best film I've ever seen, but I've said before that the Sherlock Holmes movies are *my* comic book movies.

The film seemed to lose its pace a little towards the end, there's a scene at a wake which could have had more impact with less dialogue, for example, and there are times when the 'drugs are bad' message could have done with a bit of a lighter touch.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy   11/26/11

This was easily one of the best films I've seen for a long time.
