James Bond No Time to Die Review

After eighteen months of delays Bond is back. Daniel Craig's final outing as the British intelligence spy 007 is finally screening at cinemas. This feels like a massive moment in British cinema history. This is also the first time I have seen a James Bond film at the cinema, which was a fun experience. Craig who made his debut as Bond back in 2006 with Casino Royale, makes one final fantastic performance as Ian Flemings James Bond. It is the end of a rather fantastic era of Bond, which has seen the character develop into more of an action hero, and gradually less of a womaniser. No Time to Die ties the Daniel Craig era together, with connections to Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015). It is certainly a film for the history books and perhaps one of the best Bond films. Read on for me full review - there will be MAJOR spoilers. (You have been warned!).  Narrative wise No Time to Die, is enjoyable. engaging and action packed. The film gives James

Justice League: Snyder Cut DC FanDome Trailer Reaction

DC FanDome has dropped a new trailer for Justice League: Snyder Cut! This was the trailer I had been waiting for, and it does not disappoint. After years, the Snyder cut movement has paid off and we are finally going to see what Zack Snyder had originally intended. It was revealed that the cut will be four hours long and will be split into hour long instalments, so there is a lot of content to get excited about! Theres a lot to take in in the new trailer, so read on for my reaction and thoughts!

  • So, this version of 'Hallelujah' is not really my thing, it's very depressing and tonally a little strange, so I kind of tuned it out for most of the trailer. The visuals are much better than this song anyway. 
  • Okay so there is no dialogue in the trailer, yet it is still super effective!
  • I am a little underwhelmed by the CGI here, but this may not be the final look. 
  • That first shot of Superman is interesting, I love the use of colour here. 
  • Okay was that 'Justice League' stone carving just a movie title moment or like a part of an actual building? 
  • Some shots we've seen before, but the tone seems very different and I'm liking this introduction of each character. 
  • Plus, we get to see more of my favourite: Aquaman!!
  • Okay okay okay it's happening...
  • Superman in the black costume! I love this. 
  • Wonder Woman looking super inspirational to a group of young girls - I mean that reflects the effect of her 2017 movie so love this. 
  • Is that The Flash saving Iris? 
  • This trailer is sooooooo good.
  • Our first glimpse of Cyborg. 
  • And a very powerful shot of Batman on a skeleton statue - this is the Batman vibe I love. 
  •  Some epic bad guy shots, I'm really getting the huge scale of this movie now. 
  • Lois Lane watching Superman rise over the city conveys so much emotion. 
  • I already get a better sense of Cyborgs character - which is something we desperately needed. 
  • Little bit of a montage here, showing us a lot of fight moments. This trailer is really showing off its powerful hero's which I love. 
  • OMG, an epic line up shot!!! Superman is in the black costume again; they all look ready for an epic battle and most importantly they look like a team. 
  • Everything about this team up shot is perfect, from the lighting to the camera angle - you get a real sense of power. 
  • EPIC!!
  • 'He's never fought us, not united' - I mean this line creates actual chills. 
This trailer has me so excited for the 2021 release. It's strange because there is already a version of this film and now we are being given another - something that I don't think has really happened before. Yes, we have remakes and live action adaptations but never have we had a film released with the same name and some of the same footage! I was not a huge fan of Justice League the first time around, it felt a bit of a mish mash and the story was not really that great and the characters failed to shine so I am so looking forward to seeing Snyder's original vision!
