Avengers: Endgame | Moustache Trailer Reaction

The second trailer for Avengers: Endgame has arrived, and it's a little more hopeful than what we've seen up to this point. If you haven't already seen it, check it out below.

It starts off with a little recap, what our heroes have been through over the last ten years, the things they've seen and the people they've lost. Tony thinking about how he became Iron Man, Steve Rogers doing the same with his own past and Thor thinking about his father and how he became King of Asgard, only to see half of his people - if not more - wiped out in an instant. Hawkeye teaching what could be his daughter - or possibly a young Kate Bishop - to use a bow and arrow is a particularly pertinent shot, given that we have no idea what has happened to him since the snap - or "Decimation" as it's said to be known in the movie - other than something caused him to take on a new identity as 'Ronin', and that Romanoff will be the one to hunt him down. 

A question of time has arisen too. How long did it take Scott Lang to escape the Quantum Realm? Because when he goes in search of his family, it would appear they're not there, their home is in a state that would suggest they haven't been for quite some time. But could this be key to the Avengers' plan to put things right? Gaps are quite literally being filled, shots from the previous trailer are present with new players included. The surviving team members are all reunited, seen walking across the hanger at HQ and they're all newly suited and booted (check out Rhodey's bulkier 'War Machine' suit), ready for the Quantum Realm.

Obviously there is a big fight coming, there has to be if the team is going to fix everything. All of which is hinted at with that beautifully grandiose score. Whereas the first trailer was a lot more grim, and depressed, the underlying theme of this trailer seems to be hope. Romanoff can be heard giving her support for the plan: "Even if there's a small chance, we owe this, to everyone who's not in this try." Following on from this, certain members utter the same phrase: "whatever it takes."

But what's great is that Endgame won't be all doom and gloom, we still have that cheeky Marvel humour to look forward to. In the closing moments we see Thor hazing Carol Danvers, by summoning Stormbreaker as he stands right in front of her. When it arrives, naturally she doesn't flinch, and after a brief moment Thor grins, announcing "I like this one." Not that there was ever any doubt, but it seems she is now an Avenger.

This is the type of trailer I like. We have seen snippets of what is to come, but we don't have answers. Marvel is well known for being sneaky with their trailers, so we can't trust everything we see. But what we are seeing looks fantastic. It's interesting to note that there's still no sign of the Hulk, maybe he's looking to make a big entrance. The other major player missing from this trailer is Thanos, I wonder what the Mad Titan has in store for Earth's mightiest heroes. Not long to wait now! I think it's fair to say that I didn't think I could be any more excited for Avengers: Endgame than I already am...I was wrong.

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so!

Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically differen…

Dune | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Like one of the massive space ships that feature within it, the trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on 'Dune' has landed... and it's magnificent. If you've not seen it, or you simply want to watch it again, you can check it out below:

Trying to tame Frank Herbert's legendary sci-fi novel, it seems, is a challenge like no other. But if anyone is up to the task, it's a fair bet that it's Denis Villeneuve. The French-Canadian director is no stranger to reviving beloved sci-fi properties; Blade Runner 2049 is a worthy sequel to the original Blade Runner, and an outstanding movie in its own right - the best of 2017 in my opinion. Add to that his previous projects (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners), and you've got a director with a talent for combining complex narratives, fascinating characters and stunning visuals, in a way that's both gripping and intelligible.

From the moment the trailer begins you can feel the epic scale of what has been created here. Gr…

Long Way Up | Average Guy TV Review

Ewan McGregor, Charley Boorman, and the Long Way Round team are finally back for their third epic adventure, and given how 2020 has turned out, they did it just in time. Right now it's the closest we can get to experiencing these far off places, making 'Long Way Up' a perfect piece of escapism.

Beginning their trip at the southern most tip of South America, in Ushuaia, they'll travel 13,000 miles through 13 countries. Their route will have them criss-cross between Argentina and Chile, before entering Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico and the US, crossing the finish line in Los Angeles.

This new adventure is quite different to their previous outings, and yet it all feels very familiar. Despite the gang being more than a decade older - not to mention some pretty life-changing motorcycle accidents for Charley along the way - the gang really haven't changed all that much. Not that that should come as much of a su…
