Wonder Woman

Going into the film, I was hesitant to get too excited for this film because of the massive hype surrounding it and due to the experience I had with Star Wars VII and that to be honest it disappointed me because it was not the amazing space adventure I expected, it was good and I enjoyed it but it definitely didn't live up to my expectations.
Happy to report though, Wonder Woman succeeds by meeting my expectations and more with it's breathtaking action scenes (especially the WW1 trench sequence), great (albeit a tad wooden to begin with) performance from Gal Gadot and its fast paced and brilliant direction from Patty Jenkins.
One of my favourite aspects though was the colour palette and dazzling cinematography of the film. The way in which the action scenes especially are shot, edited and coloured completely saved some sequences which easily could have been very poor, but it goes against this and delivers thrill after thrill.
Now getting back to what I said about Gal Gadot, she seemed like she was just finding her footing for the first 15 minutes of her screen time, which is understandable given it's her first leading role and a major feature. However once she begins to leave the island of Themyscira she vastly improves as she clearly becomes more comfortable in the role and her chemistry with Chris Pine (who's is also a stand out as Steve Trevor) really helps to sell the comedic scenes and more emotional ones which they both handle very well.
Overall, I highly recommend taking your time to see Wonder Woman as it is definitely the best superhero film I've seen since CA:CW and the best DC film since Nolan's TDKR.

Although the laugh-out-loud moments are far and few between, Sisters makes up for it through Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's magnetic chemistry and solid performances.

Upheld by a great cast and a witty script, Ant-Man provides audiences with a memorable, exciting and hilarious addition to the Marvel Universe.

Despite featuring cookie-cutter characters and lacking the sense of mystery for the Indominus Rex that the original had for the T-Rex, Jurassic World still features stunning special features and thrilling action sequences, making it a great stuff-your-face-with-popcorn blockbuster.

The Duff excels in places where its genre (teen rom-com) usually wouldnt't; a relatable script, great lead performances (especially Mae Whitman, who is one to watch) and an ageless message.
