Black Panther hit screens in the UK this week. A highly anticipated film that has been a long time coming – a title black superhero, with an amazing cast, in his own film – graced its way onto the big screen and fans, myself included, were not disappointed. It was an inspiring, moving and captivating film and arguably one of the best films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The final instalment of The Maze Runner trilogy hit cinemas recently and it was definitely worth the wait. As someone who read and adored the novels, I was, as much as it hurts to say, disappointed with The Scorch Trails. It wasn’t a bad film. It was action-packed and thrilling in its own way, apart from the novel, but I kept comparing it to the original storyline of the book and the changes that had been made didn’t sit well with me.
This was not the case with The Death Cure.
I found it to be action-packed, suspenseful, exciting, thrilling and emotional all rolled into one.

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle was an incredibly hilarious and enjoyable film.

It begins about a year after the previous film with a teenager named Alex, who receives the board game from his father. The game turns itself into a video game when it notices, magically, that Alex likes virtual games. As he takes the video game cartridge and starts to play, it sucks him in and is never seen again.

Justice League was a fun film. It wasn’t entirely bad and it wasn’t amazing. It opened up with footage of Superman talking to some children about what his favourite thing on Earth was. Then it paid homage to the ‘dead’ hero, the flowers and tributes that had been left for him and a shot of Lois grieving as well as Martha.

Murder On The Orient Express was a slow moving but captivating film. Each character was brought to life with Kenneth Branagh’s vision. Agatha Christie’s novel is mysterious and suspenseful which is carried through onto the screen.

Thor: Ragnarok opens with Thor trapped with Surtur who taunts him about the oncoming Ragnarok, the prophecy of Asgard’s demise. Thor battles him and his minions, taking Surtur’s crown which would, if united with the Eternal Flame that burns beneath Asgard, enable him to destroy all worlds with his almighty power. The prophecy is seemingly stopped. Thor returns to Asgard, where he is greeted by a man named Skurge as Heimdall has been in hiding since he would not bow to Loki (the last time he tried to take power).
