From the moment I saw the first trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence and heard the words "They're coming back", everything screamed cash-in. Admittedly I went into the theatre with somewhat low expectations, but I still kept an open mind that maybe this could be an entertaining sci-fi flick. Unfortunately, whilst Resurgence isn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it does very little to distinguish itself in any positive way.

Captain America: Civil War is a flawed but enjoyable superhero flick. Where it succeeds with stylish action and smart, witty dialogue, it falls short on a number of points. Civil War is by no means a bad film, some of its issues are understandable, but not everything works as well as I would have hoped.

Given the current success of the ensemble Marvel films, it's clear what Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is trying to do. BvS attempts to mix the novelty of seeing much loved heroes on screen together, with philosophical questions about the value of life, and people with power. Unfortunately, these two ideals don't mix very well, and Zack Snyder would have been better off choosing one theme to go with. What remains is a pretty dull mess of a film, that does little to engage the audience with it's characters or world.

Coming hot off the heels of it's first season, and of the first season of Jessica Jones, Daredevil's second season had some pretty big shoes to fill. I love pretty much everything about the MCU at the moment, and to me, these two series' have been the cream of the crop, so I had quite high hopes. Fortunately for me, Daredevil came back this weekend firing on all cylinders, and delivered an action packed and superbly made second outing. Here's your spoiler warning, because below I'll be talking all about the second Season.

The Deadpool movie has been a long-time coming, and after his disastrous interpretation in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, many fans - including myself and Ryan Reynolds - long to see the character done right. It is with great pleasure that I can announce that Deadpool hits all the right notes, and is a must see for any comic book fan.

After marking 50 years of Bond with the spectacle that was Skyfall, Sam Mendes had a big job ahead of him topping it with the next instalment. It is with great pleasure that I can say that Spectre fulfilled the high expectations that I had, delivering almost everything I could possibly want from a Bond film.
