Spider-Man: Far From Home | Average Guy Movie Review

Eight months after "the snap" was undone, life has returned to a relative degree of normality. Some people are five years older and some are not, a nightmare for most, but more so for teenagers. After all that has gone on, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) wants a break from his duties as the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man, so he's heading off for a vacation in Europe with his friends. But Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) has other plans for the Web Head. It seems Fury and his team are having trouble with some monsters of the elemental variety, and the warrior hunting them might need some help. Will Peter get to spend some time with MJ (Zendaya), or will the "Night Monkey" come between them? The gang is all back - in more ways than one - and director Jon Watts is leading them on another great adventure. Marvel appears to have learnt a lot from Spidey's previous solo outing in the MCU. Homecoming suffered from bad trailers spoiling far too much, includi

SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME | Another Moustache Trailer Reaction

With Endgame taking the world by storm, we're now in a better place to appreciate the aftermath of what has happened. First up, Spider-Man: Far From Home. Needless to say there will be many spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, so if you haven't seen it stop reading now. If you have seen it, but haven't seen the new Far From Home Trailer - or you just want to watch it again - check it out below. *Spoiler Warning*  We join Peter Parker (Tom Holland) at a low point in Far From Home. The poor kid has suffered a lot in his life, having lost his parents and his Uncle Ben, now he has the loss of his friend and mentor to deal with as well. It makes sense that the superhero life would be getting a bit much for him, and that he just wants to take a break, be a kid for a while. Obviously this being a superhero movie, that's not going to happen, no matter how many times he ignores Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) calls. Holland has demonstrated some real talent in

Needless to say the trailer does contain some spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, so read on at your own peril... Not seen the trailer yet? Check it out below: First of all, this is a great trailer, lots of intriguing snippets and no real spoilers - apart from the aforementioned Endgame spoilers anyway. Jon Watts returns as director, continuing to develop the story and characters first seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Peter (Tom Holland) is still working as the friendly neighbourhood wall-crawler, something Aunt May (Marissa Tomei) is aware of. With the help of Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau), they are using Pete's alter ego to do some charity work. There might even be some sparks flying between Happy and May. With a school trip to Europe on the cards, the teenage Avenger is looking forward to just being a teenager for a while, even electin

Prisoners: Average Guy Movie Review

Hugh Jackman stars in this tense thriller based on every parent's worst nightmare. When a child goes missing it's normal for the parents to feel helpless, even useless, naturally they want to do everything possible to bring their children home. In Prisoners, two little girls are kidnapped, and when the only suspect is released due to a lack of evidence, their Fathers take matters into their own hands. If your child was missing, how far would you go to get them back? Hugh Jackman, Terrence Howard, Viola Davis and Maria Bello deliver brilliant performances as the parents of the missing girls as does Jake Gyllenhaal as the Police Detective determined to bring the girls home. The movie is terrifying, but not in a horror movie way, it's terrifying because it could actually happen to you or someone you know. Prisoners was directed by Denis Villeneuve, the man behind Sicario and the upcoming Blade Runner sequel. It moves at a slow pace that keeps you intereste
