Dave Bautista in this GoTG Vol. 2 Music Video is Life

Hold your horses, Mighty Marvelites – no week is worth starting without watching this amazing new music video for ‘Guardians Inferno’, the only original track off the excellent (but still not quite as good as Vol. 1) soundtrack to Guardians of The Galaxy, Vol. 2. Featuring Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, who play the assassin Gamora and the adorably blunt Drax the Destroyer respectively, the music video drips with the same 70’s flair that the movie does – with the addition of retro filters and of course, the man who perhaps best symbolizes that era, the incomparable David Hasslehoff....

REVIEW: Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man has come home. Marvel’s most popular superhero made his entry into the MCU proper in Captain America: Civil War in a show-stealing outing – in what was a good but overall underwhelming slice of superhero action that served more as a setup to a fresh status quo. Now, in his third big screen incarnation, Spidey returns, played by Tom Holland as a fresh-faced 15 year old who’s just beginning to learn the ropes as the webslinger. Plot Homecoming sees Peter Parker return home to Queens after the rush of battling alongside – and against – the Avengers, and...

GLOW S1E01 Review

10 minutes into the very first episode of GLOW, and I’m chuckling like a teenager. By the end of the thing, I am hooked onto the struggles of Ruth Wilder (Allison Brie of Scream 4 fame), an actress in the rollicking days of the 80s where the words ‘strong female lead’ didn’t exist in that particular sequence. GLOW opens up with Ruth reading for a part, one that seems to portray a high-powered executive woman facing the power plays of a corporate setting. Unfortunately, she happens to be reading the male lead’s lines, and the part she’s reading for...
