100 Word Review – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)

Quill (Chris Pratt) and the team are back, battered and bruised and better than ever.

Continuing from Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocket (Bradley Cooper) gets the gang into hot water with the Sovereign, forcing the Guardians to cross paths with Quill’s long lost father, Ego (Kurt Russell).

With the same great cast and skill-full direction of the first film, the soundtrack may not be quite as epic, but it is still the fun, fantastical journey you might hope for. Suitable for older children, it’s already been voted number 229 in IMDb Top 250, in it’s first week of release.

Don’t miss it.

100 Word Review – Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Cosmic criminals, comedy, combat and a killer 80s soundtrack, what more could you want from this Marvel comic adaptation?

Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is taken from Earth after the death of his mum, with only an epic mixtape to keep him company. 25 years later he calls himself Star Lord, and is an intergalactic thief, caught up in a bid to save the galaxy.

Writer/director James Gunn (Scooby-Doo) does a fantastic job of creating a three-dimensional ensemble cast that includes a talking tree (Vin Diesel), a wise-cracking racoon (Bradley Cooper) and a whole lot more. It’s an absolute joy to watch.

100 Word Review – The Lego Movie (2014)

Everything is awesome.

There is nothing not to love about this film. It may be aimed at children, but once you get passed the obvious marketing ploys there is enough in it for everyone.

Emmett (Chris Pratt) is an average construction worker who accidentally gets stuck to the Piece of Resistance and finds himself helping Batman (Will Arnett), Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks) and Unikitty (Alison Brie) to save all of the worlds from Lord Business (Will Ferrell).

Written and directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the team who directed 21 Jump Street (2012), this stop-motion animation is delightful from beginning to end.
