Marvel Studios’ Eternals | Moustache Teaser Reaction

The first trailer for Marvel Studios' The Eternals  has landed, and while it doesn't give all that much away, it does promise something a little different to what has gone before it. If you haven't seen the trailer or just want to watch it again, you can check it out below. This trailer leaves me more curious than excited, which in a way feels the wrong way round. Normally I'm just excited to see where the latest Marvel adventure is taking us. It is nice, however, to see an upcoming instalment of the MCU on the horizon that I know next to nothing about.  There really isn't much here to work with. The trailer establishes that these long-living, superpowered beings exist. They have been living on Earth for quite a while - having arrived on a ship that looks like a giant, flying slab of granite - and have influenced but not interfered with humanity in order to see us develop. Oh, and they're not so hidden as to be unaware of what's going on in the world/galaxy.

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

Godzilla vs. Kong | Moustache Trailer Reaction

The first trailer for Godzilla vs. Kong has quite literally crashed on to our screens, and it promises all the destruction you'd expect of a global fight between titans. If you haven't seen the trailer, or just want to watch it again, you can check it out below. Adam Wingard (The Guest, Blair Witch) leads the charge in the latest entry in the 'MonsterVerse', which sees two of the behemoths go head to head. We haven't seen Kong since 1973, and now it seems that Monarch need him for some unknown reason, one that undoubtedly involves global destruction if they fail. We know it has something to do with Kong's "true home", and a war that wiped out most of the titans. What that means for all of the titans seen bowing to Godzilla at the end of King of the Monsters is anybody's guess, at this point. But Godzilla's all pissed off for some reason, and is determined to get in the way of Kong's journey of discovery. Hence why every time the two titans

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse | Average Guy Movie Review

Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) is a typical teenager, struggling to fit in whilst also trying to find his place in the world. His struggles only worsen when he's bitten by a genetically engineered spider, gifting him with the same abilities as Spider-Man. Abilities he must learn to control. Luckily for Miles, a cross-dimensional event has brought several other Spider-People to his dimension, who better to teach him what it means to be Spider-Man? But will he master it all before his new found friends are forced to return home? Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is proof that Sony can do a Spider-Man movie, and do it well, if they get the right people. Oh, and if they leave said people alone to do the work. This is a spectacular movie on every level. Thanks to some beautiful animation - a combination of comic book and anime styles - this new version of the Marvel universe looks fantastic. Not only that, the voice cast do an impeccable job of bringing it to life. And at the cen

Widows | Average Guy Movie Review

The lives of four women are threatened when their husbands are killed during the course of a robbery gone wrong. The men they robbed want their money back - all $2 million of it - and they're holding the widows responsible. The only chance these women have of clearing the debt is to pull off their husband's next job. There's just one problem, they've never done anything like this before. Writer/Director Steve McQueen, in his first project as director since 2013's 12 Years A Slave - and with the help of co-writer Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) - has managed to catch lightning in a bottle once again. Widows is a tense and gritty thriller in which crime, politics and corruption are entwined in a web of deception and betrayal. McQueen and Flynn have created a criminal underworld befitting the Chicago setting. It's shiny exterior hides the rotten core in which those with power feed on the weak. Now you might think that sounds like an average day where
