Stowaway | Average Guy Movie Review

Shortly after launch, a crew on a mission to Mars are surprised to discover a member of the ground crew aboard their ship, unconscious. What begins as an awkward situation in which the three astronauts must adjust to life with their unexpected new team member, soon becomes a life-threatening situation when the ship is damaged. This is one of those Hollywood situations that hopefully will never happen; one minute you're working, the next you're waking up on a spaceship on its way to Mars. It's strange then that no real time is spent establishing how on Earth - or anywhere else, for that matter - something like this could ever happen. Although it does raise some interesting questions about privatised space travel and oversight. I mean, hopefully space agencies like NASA account for all members of their ground crew before launch. But once you get past the mysterious course of events that lead to this whole mess, or should I say the lack thereof,  Stowaway  develops into an int

Shang-Chi And The Legend of The Ten Rings | Moustache Trailer Reaction

So the first trailer for Shang-Chi And The Legend of The Ten Rings is here - appropriately dropped on Simu Liu's birthday - and as you'd expect with Marvel, it promises to be another exciting instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. More importantly, it opens up an entirely new culture to this superhero universe, presenting audiences with the MCU's first Asian protagonist. You can check out the trailer below. In terms of plot it looks like Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) walked away from his life and his family over a feud with his father, Wenwu (Tony Chu-Wai Leung) A.K.A. The Mandarin. Now, ten years later, Shang-Chi finds himself being drawn back into that life he has tried to forget, as a series of killers begin hunting him down. But was he ever really out of it? Was his father simply watching from afar, waiting for the right moment to draw his son back into the fold? Firstly, it's worth noting that unlike in previous MCU entries, we're not talking about an imposter, th

Godzilla vs Kong | Average Guy Movie Review

When Kong is removed from Skull Island as part of a major expedition, Godzilla quickly steps in to assert his position as King of the Monsters. What follows is a heavy-weight bout of epic proportions, one that reveals an ancient rivalry between the two species. But with the Apex Cybernetics corporation picking up the tab, is there more to this expedition than meets the eye? It's movies like this that should really be seen on the big screen! Between the breath-taking visuals and epic kaiju fights - all of which is set perfectly to Junkie XL's fantastic score - Adam Wingard's foray into the MonsterVerse certainly lives up to its title. Seeing these two giants - as well as a certain third player - knock seven bells out of each other is... well, monstrous fun. And because the visuals are so crisp, you can appreciate every punch, every radioactive breath and every smashed building. In that respect Godzilla vs Kong is exactly what fans want; a humongous clash of the titans, from
