Oh Marvel; you bring us so many wonderful films. We have come all the way from Iron-Man, past the Avengers, and now we’re here. I was of course skeptical, so the question you’ll be asking; did Ant-Man deliver? Put simply, yes, yes it did.

Disaster flicks are surprisingly difficult to get right. As simple as you may think it is, it has to be just right to keep our attention. Look at The Day After Tomorrow; special effects were great, but the story was a bit dull and the film itself got boring in its second act. How about 2012; special effects were fantastic, but the cast and also the story just weren’t right and it felt more like a mockery of the 2012 theory rather than a decent disaster movie. However, I’m glad to be able to say that after viewing San Andreas, I’m very pleased.
I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for horror remakes. As a wee boy I watched films like The Ring and The Grudge, and obviously I was terrified. Even to this day I find them pretty creepy. But what is important to remember, the original films were foreign classics, giving more room for originality in a remake.

How can I introduce Boyhood? I could compare it to other films, or think of a witty introductory comment. But when it comes to Boyhood, this is unnecessary. It is incomparable.
