This one has been a long time coming. DC had beaten Marvel to the punch in terms of having a female led superhero film, and while Marvel made some strides in this area with “Ant-Man and the Wasp” this is the first fully fledged female led superhero flick in the MCU...

In the same year that Dreamworks seemingly wrapped up their big money spinner of the time in “Shrek”, even they couldn’t have predicted that the original “How to Train Your Dragon”, released the same year, would take its place financially and critically.

Everything is most certainly not awesome for the heroes of the fist Lego movie, a surprise hit from a few years ago, as this film picks up exactly where the original left off; the arrival of the Lego Duplo to the world of Emmet and Wildstyle...

This, the final part of M Night Shyamalan’s trilogy that started in 2000 with “Unbreakable”, and continued with “Split”, is a welcome reprieve from the traditional comic book stories we’ve been getting lately. It breaks down the superhero myths and tropes, and asks the question of whether or not superhuman abilities are just that, or are the people that carry them out merely fooling themselves...

The voice acting is top notch and all the cast give it their best. The soundtrack and score are both excellent and only help to make this one of the standout comic book films of the last five years, and probably one of the best animated comic book adaptations ever. It’s that good...
