Dune | Average Guy Movie Review

At a time when his family is called upon to protect the galaxy's most valuable resource; Spice - a material that can extend human life, makes interstellar travel possible, and is only found on the desert planet of Arrakis - Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) is trying to figure out if he's going to be the man everyone wants him to be. But with treachery closing in on House Atreides from all sides, and the Spice fields up for grabs, he's going to have to figure it out quick. The man who brought us an epic sequel to Blade Runner  has gone in search of an even bigger challenge, and the one he has set his heart on is Frank Herbert's sci-fi classic;  Dune . This highly influential novel has in the past proven rather difficult to adapt for both the big and small screen. Not that that would deter someone like Denis Villeneuve, for whom making Dune  has been a life-long ambition. Something that definitely shows in his recreation of this vast and rich universe. Everything is very

Ghostbusters: Afterlife | Moustache Trailer Reaction

We have another trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife . Much like those that came before it, the "International" trailer hints at all the delightful chaos that's coming to the town of Summerville, Oklahoma, as the responsibility of protecting our world from the paranormal is passed to a new generation of Ghostbusters. Check out the trailer below. In the previous trailers the focus has very much been on the mystery and the fun. But with this new trailer we get hints at the horror side of the story. Ghostbusters  is well known for being a mix of sci-fi, horror and comedy, and Afterlife  looks to be no different. The trailer opens with a truck racing through the night, before crashing into a crop field. At first the driver appears to be running from an unseen pursuer. But given that said driver has a certain piece of specialist equipment in their possession, it seems that they're more likely luring someone or something back to their home. The likelihood is this is Egon car

Venom: Let There Be Carnage | Average Guy Movie Review

After a year of living together, the relationship between Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and Venom (also Tom Hardy) is strained. While Venom wants to get out there and munch on bad guys, Eddie is trying to keep a low profile as he tries to get his life back together. But when the pair visit Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson), Venom accidentally shares a piece of himself with the death row inmate, resulting in the emergence of a new symbiote - Carnage. This allows Kasady to escape his execution and bring chaos to San Francisco. And the only one(s) who can stop him, aren't getting along right now. Sony's superpowered antihero odd couple are back, and with the both of them stuck in Eddie Brock's body, things are getting tense. Imagine what it would be like sharing your body with a toddler on a sugar rush, that's Eddie's life with Venom.  How do you enforce rules on a being that's a) more powerful than you, and b) can control your body? The answer being; with great difficulty

Home Sweet Home Alone | Moustache Trailer Reaction

So it seems Disney felt the need to remake/reboot Home Alone . Yes, the classic Christmas movie enjoyed by millions every year during the festive season apparently needs some fresh blood. Check out the trailer below. "Holiday classics were meant to be broken." That's an interesting tagline! My first thought upon seeing the trailer for Home Sweet Home Alone  was something along the lines of "oh dear". Actually, at first I thought this was a joke. However, once I realised that was not the case I started wondering what the point of this is. We already have this movie, in fact we have two of them, and they're both great (just blink when Trumoy makes his appearance). Why would you watch this when you can watch the original on the very same streaming service? Once again a child is left behind as a family head off on a Christmas holiday, this time to Japan. At first it's all good fun as the young Max Mercer (Alfie Yates) enjoys a life without rules, boundaries

No Time To Die | Average Guy Movie Review

After the events of Spectre , James Bond (Daniel Craig) rode off into the sunset, or at least he drove. He and Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) went in search of a more peaceful life. But they never found it, and five years later Bond is living a solitary retirement in Jamaica. That is until Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) shows up with a favour to ask, dragging Bond back into the world he has tried so desperately to leave behind. It's hard to believe we've waited almost two years for No Time To Die  to hit cinemas. Fourth release is the charm, I guess. And what a wait it has been; roughly two years spent wondering how this James Bond would bow out. Once again Daniel Craig shows us a different side to the super spy, as his relationship with Madeleine Swann becomes the central focus. D rawing inspiration from  On Her Majesty's Secret Service  (an unforeseen but brilliant move, even if it does mean enduring Louis Armstrong's 'We Have All The Time In The World'), the mo

A Daniel Craig Retrospective

After a rather long wait, Daniel Craig's final outing as 007 is about to arrive in cinemas... hopefully. So I thought it was about time I did another rewatch, one that was unlikely to be as painful as A Fast Moustache ReWatch . At first I was only going to rewatch Craig's four James Bond  movies, but then I started thinking about some of the other movies he's made over the last twenty years, and this suddenly became a much bigger endeavour. I began scouring streaming services and my own Blu-ray/DVD collection, one of these titles I even had to turn to ebay to find - it shouldn't be too hard to figure out which one. Then I had to find time to watch these movies, all 12 of them. The result of which was a rather fun two weeks. And at the end of this rainbow... No Time To Die . Once I started thinking about including more of Daniel Craig's movies in this rewatch,  Road to Perdition seemed like a pretty good place to start... a future Bond working with a future Bond dir
