Pokemon Detective Pikachu Review

Howdy ladies and gents of the internet, how is it going? So I’m back again to share my thoughts on the latest video game film adaptation in the form of Pokemon: Detective Pikachu via my podcast Film Focus. Now, this film went from being something I wasn’t overly interested in watching to being something I had to watch. With pretty compelling marketing and an interesting story based on the Nintendo 3DS spin-off game, does this film end up being the film to break the video game adaptation curse? Well, check out this spoiler-free review below to find out!

P.S. Some small things to note:

  1. I accidentally bumped the mic while recording because I got a little too hyped talking about the film.
  2. Between 18:41 to 19:06 I discuss a minor Pokemon-related spoiler for the film.

Anyway here’s the review:

Avengers: Endgame Spoiler Talk

Howdy ladies and gents of the internet, today I am here to share my spoiler-based thoughts on Avengers: Endgame via my podcast Film Focus. Now I know not everyone has seen the film yet, but I had to get this out as soon as possible for those who have. Also, this film has so much packed into it that it would be impossible to highlight everything that happened in its 3-hour runtime, but there’s a lot of stuff that I had to say about the story, characters, presentation and this film’s ties to other films in the MCU. So be prepared for a looser, less structured episode where I talk about most of the things that stood out to me in a very passionate and emotional way haha.

P.S. A couple of things to keep in mind:

  1. I do get a little loud from time to time so mind your headphone volume.
  2. Around 16:17 I mention Gamora when I meant to Nebula, so apologies for that mix-up.

Anyway here’s the episode 78:

Avengers: Endgame Spoiler-Free Review

Howdy ladies and gents of the internet, how is it going? So yeah I have returned from the depths of the earth to share my thoughts on the latest superhero film from Marvel Studios; Avengers: Endgame! Normally I would have had my review online by Friday but I decided to take some time to really think about the film, process it and then deliver it via my podcast Film Focus.

Anyway here’s the episode 77:

Now surprisingly this is one of the shortest reviews I’ve ever done for a notable high-profile film like Endgame, but I believe was due to me trying to avoid giving any spoilers but also trying to give my thoughts fairly concise as I didn’t wish to ramble on too much haha.

So have you seen Endgame and if so what did you think of it? Did it meet, exceed or fall below your expectations? Drop your thoughts in the comments section below and I’ll see ya in the next review, until next time, laters! 😀

PODCAST: Film Focus – State of the MCU

Good day to you ladies and gents of the internet, I’m here again to share with you an interesting discussion via my podcast, Film Focus. On episode 76, Drew from Drew’s Movie Reviews not only returns to the podcast but takes over hosting duties as we dive back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his topic; The State of the MCU. Since Avengers: Endgame is on the horizon, Drew and I thought it would be fun and interesting to discuss the superhero films from Marvel Studios in a little more detail discussing everything from the best and worst villains to our Top 5 best and worst films to the minimum amount of films you need to see before Endgame comes out.

So join us on a fun-filled discussion and of course know that this is spoiler-heavy, so if you’re not caught up on all of the films it’s best to catch up and then come back.

Also, two things to keep in mind:

  1. This is a spoiler-heavy discussion, and while we don’t cover every film in detail, if you’re not up to date with all of the MCU films then it is best that you skip this or get caught up and come back.
  2. This a fairly long episode at an hour and 47 minutes, but it is definitely a good listen as there was a lot of fun, humour and different perspectives on several of the films.

Check out the episode below:

So what did you think of our discussion? Agree or disagree? I really want to hear your thoughts on this film so drop your thoughts in the comments below and if you have some spare time subscribe to my podcast, Film Focus on Soundcloud and iTunes. Until the next time peeps, laters! 😀

Shazam! Review

Howdy ladies and gents of the internet, I know this one is a little late but back on here to share my thoughts on Shazam! in the form of a review via my podcast, Film Focus.

On episode 75 of Film Focus, I share my thoughts on Shazam!, the latest superhero film from DC and Warner Bros. Now, I recall seeing the trailer for this film online during Comic-Con 2018 and being quite intrigued. The concept of a kid being able to transform into an adult superhero with Superman-like abilities is such a crazy and unique idea with lots of possibilities cool superhero adventures. And after the early positive word of mouth came out about the film two weeks ago, I got really hyped to see it. So after seeing it a recently, how was the film? Well, check out this spoiler-free review to find out!

AUDIO REVIEW: Us

Howdy ladies and gents of the internet, I know this one is a little late but back on here to share my thoughts on Us in the form of a review via my podcast, Film Focus.

Now, this is a film that a lot of people have been looking forward to not only because it was the follow-up to 2017’s Get Out, but also because of the hype surrounding the marketing. Once the trailer came out I recall the internet going crazy for it, but I never saw the trailer or any of the marketing at all just because I was sold on Peele and the cast. And with the early glowing reviews, film fans everywhere were excited to see what the deal was with this new film. So today I share with you my spoiler-free thoughts. 🙂

Check out the review:

So have you seen Us and if so what did you think of it? I really want to hear your thoughts on this film so drop your thoughts in the comments below and if you have some spare time subscribe to my podcast, Film Focus on Soundcloud and iTunes. Until next time, laters! 😀

AUDIO REVIEW: Captain Marvel

Howdy ladies and gents of the internet, I’m here again to bring you another review and today I’m sharing my thoughts on Captain Marvel via my podcast, Film Focus.

Now here’s the thing, I saw this film over a week ago, and I uploaded the review on Soundcloud at the start of last week, and yet I just didn’t get around to posting it on here. So yeah my thoughts may seem a little redundant considering how quickly people take information these days, but for those who are interested in my opinion, well here it is:

So have you seen Captain Marvel and if so what did you think of it? I really want to hear your thoughts on this film so drop your thoughts in the comments below and if you have some spare time subscribe to my podcast, Film Focus on Soundcloud and iTunes. Until next time, laters! 😀

P.S. There were a number of mistakes made here and there and some information I forgot to cover while in the episode, but I just wanted to let you know in advance. Forgiveness, please.

Check out the episode below:

Pros and Cons of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Part 1

Good day to you ladies and gents of the internet, I’ve finally returned with another topic of conversation that I hope you will enjoy. So with Captain Marvel fast approaching I thought it would be fun to look back at the Marvel Cinematic Universe and discuss the pros and cons via my podcast, Film Focus.

So this is a subject I’ve been wanting to cover for almost three years now, it was just a case of finding the right timing with when it comes to the ongoing Marvel films and getting out of work to record it. Thankfully I’m not alone, returning guest and good homie, Drew from Drew’s Movie Reviews is along for the ride to help me and I must say he did a fabulous job. 🙂 Now since the recording ended up being a little longer and in-depth than I expected this subject ended up becoming a two-parter. So in this episode, we cover the pros of the MCU from the characters to action scenes to characters and humour, we cover a lot and hopefully, you’ll enjoy listening to our discussion.

Also, two things to keep in mind:

  1. This is a spoiler-heavy discussion, and while we don’t cover every minute detail, if you’re not up to date with all of the MCU films then it is best that you skip this to avoid spoilers.
  2. There are a few mistakes made here and there when it came to naming pronunciations and some other verbal mistakes, so apologies in advance.

Check out the episode below:

So what did you think of our discussion? I really want to hear your thoughts on this film so drop your thoughts in the comments below and if you have some spare time subscribe to my podcast, Film Focus on Soundcloud and iTunes. Be sure to drop by again real soon for part 2, laters! 😀

AUDIO REVIEW: Dragon Ball Super: Broly

Howdy ladies and gents of the internet, I’m back again with another review and today I get to share my thoughts on Dragon Ball Super: Broly via my podcast, Film Focus.

Recently I shared my written review, however, I felt like I had more to say about this film and to properly illustrate how much this film means to me, I knew an episode on the podcast would be in order. Plus I also go into a little more detail about some of the stuff relating to the plot, characters and visual presentation. Now I have been following this film since the first teaser trailer and each bit of marketing has made my hype increase. And after waiting over a month after the initial Japanese release I’ve finally seen it and I am ready to pass judgement. So join me for this spoiler-free review to see how this latest Dragon Ball adventure turned out!

Check out my review below:

So have you seen Dragon Ball Super: Broly and if so what did you think of it? I really want to hear your thoughts on this film so drop your thoughts in the comments below and if you have some spare time subscribe to my podcast, Film Focus on Soundcloud and iTunes. Until next time, laters! 😀
