Some Exciting Stuff Came Out Of SDCC's Hall H | Moustache Reaction

There was some exciting stuff coming out of this years San Diego Comic Con! This includes panels for the Game of Thrones  spin-off; House of The Dragon , and The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power . And lets not forget the trailers for I Am Groot  and John Wick: Chapter 4 . The latter being particularly exciting for me, as our favourite assassin not only takes on another legion of killers in his feud with the High Table, but also must face up to the question of "where this ends". Obviously DC  and Marvel  to give us a glimpse of their upcoming slates, although DC 's wasn't quite on the same scale as Marvel 's. This might have something to do with the controversy surrounding some of their stars, but it certainly didn't stop them from wowing us with the two trailers they did show us. First up we've got a new trailer for Black Adam , which hits UK cinemas on 21st October. Dwayne Johnson's titular all-powerful being is causing chaos while Pierce Brosnan

The Batman | Average Guy Movie Review

Only in his second year, a young Batman faces one of his first big challenges when a psychopath with a penchant for riddles begins targeting Gotham City's most powerful, leaving messages for the Batman at every crime scene. Through the course of his investigation, the caped crusader will wade through the city's underworld, teaming up with a cop and a cat burglar along the way. When a character is re-imagined as frequently as Batman there's a danger that things might start to get a little repetitive. As filmmakers run out of places to go, these different iterations inevitably begin to blur. Thankfully however, that is not a fate that has befallen Matt Reeves' The Batman . The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes  director has taken a young caped crusader and inserted him into a gripping mystery thriller, set against the backdrop of a grim and desolate Gotham City. There is something very Se7en -esque to this, as the titular vigilante and his cop best friend try to make a diffe

The Suicide Squad | Average Guy Movie Review

A new batch of convicts - as well as a few originals - are under the thumb of Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), who's once again offering years off their prison sentences in return for completing a few jobs for Uncle Sam. This time she's sending them to the island nation of Corto Maltese. There they must infiltrate the capital and destroy a top secret research facility. Sounds easy enough. Task Force X is back, and with James Gunn at the helm things are madder than ever! The Guardians of the Galaxy  director has taken what David Ayer started and blown the roof off of it. But he has done so in a way that is respectful of what has gone before. Fans of the original (of which there are apparently few) will have no trouble going from  Suicide Squad  to The Suicide Squad . And yet, the new movie stands quite happily on it's own two feet. Rather than making them drastically different, the returning characters simply feel like they have grown a bit. Well, maybe not grown, but adapted, t

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 21 | Zack Snyder's Justice League

Well it has finally arrived; the long awaited "Snyder Cut" is here in all its glory - that's right, all four hours of it. Which means we actually have an answer to one of life's great questions (for movie geeks and comic book fans, anyway); was it worth the wait? As always, don't forget to check out our Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide in its glorious entirety, which you can find by clicking here . After the death of Superman (Henry Cavill), Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) fears an invasion is imminent, one not of this Earth. So in order to prepare, he goes in search of the metahumans that Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) uncovered, in order to form a team that could defend the Earth from any threat. But will he be able to find them in time? Before an ancient evil reveals itself. When I first saw the theatrical cut of Justice League back in 2017 my reaction was kind of 'meh', it's ok, had its moments, but it's nothing on the movies that went befor

Zack Snyder’s Justice League | Moustache Teaser Reaction

The first teaser for 'Zack Snyder's Justice League' has landed. Not seen it yet? Check it out below: It's only a quick snippet of the new things to come, but it does have a small reveal. It seems that Diana Prince was doing some research into Darseid, and in the process discovered an ancient painting of the man himself. The clip has a slightly Indiana Jones feel to it, apart from Lex Luthor's ramblings about bells not being un-rung playing over the top. After that we're treated to a shot of the world conquering alien which looks suspiciously like one that featured Steppenwolf in the theatrical cut of Justice League. Other than that, there's not really much to say. Undoubtedly it's just an attempt to keep this interesting project current. But it's good to see that this much whispered about character might actually make an appearance, when we finally get to see Zack Snyder's vision for the Justice League sometime next year. What did you think of th

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
