A musical (remember those?) has been released at the tail end of the year and has dazzled its audience. Damien Chazelle came on the scene a couple of years back with ‘Whiplash’, and moviegoers have been eagerly waiting for his next project since the previous film’s ending credits started to role. With this film seen as a risk because of the genre it’s set in, this could’ve been a big misstep for the young writer/director. And I’m happy to say that it wasn’t.

Now before we begin, the version that I will be reviewing is the 2006 DVD version that featured many altered scenes. I would love to have watched the…

Someone please explain to me how James Gunn can take characters from a Marvel comic, that non fans knew almost nothing about, make them to characters that we love in a Marvel film, and then come back two years later to make us love them even more? I mean, this trailer screams fun all over again. The trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 finally dropped onto the web and it looks like another hit out of the park for the MCU.  The crew of The Milano is back and are the a-holes the universe needs to save itself…
