The lowdown: The gang reassemble in this sequel to the 3rd biggest box office movie of all time. Warped A.I. in the form of tyrannical tin man Ultron is the big bad here, joined by other fan favourites, the mind-meddling Scarlet Witch and her brother, human lightning bolt Quicksilver...

2014 – Rewind and Re-View

With 2015 fast becoming a reality, what better time to look back at movies in the year that was 2014?

As is tradition, let’s begin with…

Transformers - Age of Extinction - Dinobot, Optimus Prime

The lowdown: Following the first class First Class and the wild The Wolverine, X-Men: Days of Future Past confirms the franchise has rediscovered its X-factor. A time travel save-the-world plot unites the original series with the First Class reboot, delivering a blockbuster to sink your claws, mind and mutant streak into. A high-wattage cast and Bryan Singer’s dynamic direction ensure that in a world of Avengers, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Batman, Superman, etc, etc, X still marks the spot where it all began.
