Morbius | Average Guy Movie Review

The gifted Dr Michael Morbius (Jared Leto) has dedicated his life to finding a cure for the rare blood disorder that afflicts him. As time has gone on his research has looked to more extreme avenues, which has led him to the study of bats. In his desperation, Morbius tests a potential cure on himself. The result of which goes way beyond eliminating his condition, granting him superhuman abilities, as well as a thirst  for blood. I think it's fair to say that Sony's attempts to build a Marvel  universe based around characters associated with Spider-Man  have not been their most successful. Both Venom  and Venom: Let There Be Carnage  have been met with a reasonable amount of criticism. I personally enjoyed the first movie, although I can't say the same for the sequel, which at the very least does not live up to its title. Bringing us to the next Spidey villain/anti-hero that Sony has rolled out to populate their fledgeling - or should that be floundering - universe... Doctor

Fast & Furious 9 | Average Guy Movie Review

Old enemies emerge from the shadows forcing the team back into high-octane battle. This time, however, the family will be tested like never before, because the one threatening the world used to be part of that family. Justin Lin returns to the franchise that put him on the map, to helm yet another physics-defying action fest. This time  the team face a challenge that hits all too close to home.

It doesn't help that the majority  of the new developments - most of which continue the pattern of trying to fix or alter what has gone before - go almost entirely unexplained. Simply put, they've tried to do too much,

Fast & Furious 9 | Moustache Trailer Reaction

The first trailer for Fast & Furious 9 has landed, and as you'd expect it looks more insane than the last instalment... if that's possible. If you haven't seen the trailer, check it out below.  It all starts with Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) living on a farm, having traded their fast cars for the quiet life in order to raise little Brian. But trouble is always around the corner, and once again Dom will have to put his crew of super secret agent drivers back together, to face a new foe, and an old one too. Get ready for a lot of conversations about "family". This is where the issues begin with this trailer. I'm not talking about the ludicrous nature of Fast & Furious and the way it plays fast and loose with the laws of physics. No, I'm referring to the fact that it's loaded with spoilers. We're introduced to Jacob (John Cena) - the movie's big bad - who Roman (Tyrese) describes as a "master thief
