This long, tedious book has a much shorter, exciting book inside of it. Or around it. Or I’m imagining it could be.
The whole package was there – the drums and soundscape were brilliant. The entire look and feel of Wakanda was sufficiently different but also just super stylish.
I also enjoyed the weird dream like sequences of the Valkyrior fighting Hella that Loki gets out of the Valkyrie. The whole thing is stylish. The colours, the armour, the fights, everything. The last battle when Thor really comes into his powers. The jump down was like a comic book pane. Amazing. I think those are my favourite moments in these films – when they take a single moment and make it like it came out of the comic books.
I always forget how stressful reading V E Schwab’s books can be. The tension she manages to ratchet up in such a short amount of time. GOSH.
Okay, going to have to confess. This is not so much a rewatch as a ‘watch for the first time’ as I find Spiderman a bit dull and a bit annoying (I mean I don’t like reading books starring teenage boys, so a film isn’t any more enticing). So I never went to see it when it was in the cinema.
Clearly, everyone got the memo that every one loves baby dancing Groot. Or baby Groot looking concerned. Or sad. Or baby Groot in general. Which is good, because he is fucking adorable. I mean, Taserface even thinks he’s adorable.
I’m not sure I remember the reception of Doctor Strange – I liked it though.
