Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning | Average Guy Movie Review

Once again, Ethan Hunt and his IMF team must criss-cross the globe in order to stave off Armageddon. This time in search of a very special key. The problem is; no one seems to know what it unlocks, but every one is interested in acquiring it, including governments, arms dealers and a very powerful - but rogue - artificial intelligence known as 'The Entity'. But will the IMF's propensity for pulling off the absolutely insane be enough to outsmart them all and keep whatever the key unlocks out of their grasp? Christopher McQuarrie delivers yet another high-octane instalment in the Mission: Impossible  franchise. Only this time he faces the very real dilemma of outdoing his own creation. Yes, you could argue he has done that before - Dead Reckoning  being his third Mission  movie - but this time it's a little different, given that Fallout  is widely considered to be the best movie of the franchise, and by some margin. So how do you outdo something like that? Well, you go b

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 | Average Guy Movie Review

A lot has changed for the Guardians since the blip brought back all those that Thanos snapped away. They have taken over Nowhere, turned it into a haven for refugees and lost souls, and in the process become de facto governors of this potentially smelly colony. They've even got a cool new ship - the 'Bowie' - and discovered the spirit of Christmas. Not that any of this has helped Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), who is still struggling with the loss of Gamora (Zoe Saldana). But when Rocket (Bradley Cooper) is badly wounded in an attack, the gang head off in search of the technology that could save their friend, and in so doing draw the attention of someone from Rocket's past; the High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji). It would seem that James Gunn's parting gift to Marvel before going on to head up DC Studios was to give them their mojo back. Put simply,  Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is a return to form for the MCU . The last couple of movies have been a tad under par f

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special | Average Guy Movie Review

In an effort to cheer up Quill (Chris Pratt), and restore his love of Christmas, Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and Drax (Dave Bautista) travel to Earth in search of the perfect gift. With the help of Marvel  and the Guardians of the Galaxy , James Gunn has finally got the chance to share his love of the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special , and to spread a little festive cheer while he's at it, with his very own Holiday Special. But a Holiday Special born from Gunn's interesting sense of humour can only mean we're in for another gonzo galactic adventure, one served with copious amounts of cheese, and - rather unsurprisingly - an excellent soundtrack. All of which Gunn delivers, and more. Seeing the Guardians deliver Christmas in their own (very) weird way, it turns out, is actually a perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. As well as being a delightfully sappy adventure, The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special  is a fun way to catch up with the gang before the arrival of
