18 films, 10 years and it all comes down to this. ‘Avengers Infinity War’ is the film that Marvel studios has been building too ever since Robert Downey’s first ‘Iron Man’ appeared on our cinema screens back in 2008. Back then, Marvel weren’t even a proper studio, they were just a small cog in a much bigger wheel. Well, now they are the wheel. To say this is a big deal would be a understatement. This is the ultimate event movie. The hype and build up that surround the release of the film have been huge. Very few spoilers have leaked out and we are going to keep it that way. JUMPCUT will be releasing much more and spoiler filled and in-depth reviews over the next few weeks.

This is just initial reactions from the press screening that happened in London on 24th May 2018

Before the screening you could feel the anticipation in the room. Conversations were rife with the future of all our favourite characters. Where’s Hawkeye? Does Cap’s beard play a major role? Where’s that missing soul stone? Answers were coming. The lights went out and the Marvel Studio logo comes up and the crowd went wild.

For the next 149 minutes we were all putty in the Russo brother’s hands. They have woven a tale which bounces around all Marvel’s best and across the darkest corners of the universe and back again to New York and Wakanda. It was always going to be a hard job to give every character their moment but ‘Infinity War’ just about does that. With multiple story-lines, it does feel more like ‘Return of the Jedi’ and ‘The Two Towers’ than the normal single story narrative. The script is so tight and every word that is said is important, so listen carefully.

Thanos lives up to his reputation at the ultimate bad guy (A problem Marvel has had in the past). The Mad Titan is at the heart of the movie and Josh Brolin’s voice will send shivers down the spine of any mortal man. He truly is a test for the Avengers.

‘Avengers Infinity War’ at its best is epic, emotional and very, very shocking. It has impressive set pieces and of course it’s very funny. The few faults it does have are going to be down purely to the viewer. A knowledge of all that has happened before is essential. This is not the film for newbies. If you don’t know your Captain Americas from your Star Lords then maybe it would be best to catch up first. . Also as you expect some characters get more screen time than others, sadly some of your favs may just be bit part players. Overall this was worth the wait.

‘Infinity War’ holds true to its core and has truly raised stakes on the Marvel cinematic universal. Nothing will be the same again. Roll on May 2019 for Avengers 4.

ps. There is a end of credit scene, so don’t leave early!

I, Tonya

Year: 2018
Directed by: Craig Gillespie
Cast:  Margot Robbie, Sebastian Stan, Allison Janney

Written by Livia Peterson

Several forms of media have become an integral component of our lives. Television always seemingly provides negative stories of crime, illnesses, and depressing weather forecasts. Radio may regurgitate what we’ve seen via television, excluding music and sports stations. Motion pictures allow one to escape reality and immerse oneself into a fictional or nonfictional narrative.

It is difficult to distinguish between genuine, factual news and tabloid news, especially during the current “fake news” era. Tonya Harding’s attack on Nancy Kerrigan would be considered “fake news” and in consequence, we would either instantly read online articles or enjoy live television to learn about the news today. Believe it or not, this incident actually occurred. Thus, Craig Gillespie’s ‘I, Tonya’ could be considered Harding’s redemption story.

Young Tonya Harding (Mckenna Grace) competed in figure skating and meanwhile, the abusive mother LaVona (Academy Award winner Allison Janney, in this role) ensured her success. LaVona even forced Tonya to tinkle on the ice rink during one particular scene. As Tonya (Margot Robbie) matures and practices figure skating, she develops a relationship with Jeff Gillooly (Sebastian Stan).

Numerous practice sessions occur prior to the 1994 United States Figure Skating Championships. Nancy Kerrigan (Caitlin Carver) does not expect anything to happen, but Tonya may have a clue, regarding what could occur during a practice session. Yet, Jeff and the bodyguard Shawn Eckhardt (Paul Walter Hauser) hire Shane Stant (Ricky Russert) to injure Nancy’s leg to provide Tonya an advantage and the getaway driver Derrick Smith (Anthony Reynolds).

Most of us recognise the aftermath of this incident, Tonya was removed from the U.S. Figure Skating Association for life and divorced Jeff and of course, Nancy remains in figure skating.

The title ‘I, Tonya’ is derived from Robert Graves’ historical novel ‘, Claudius’, written as if it were an autobiography by the Roman Emperor Claudius. Just the title alone indicates ‘I, Tonya’ is an unconventional biopic, as the film is narrated via several fictional interviews with Tonya, Jeff, LaVona, and a few others. While the interwoven interviews enhance the narrative providing various angles to the story, it is still obvious to notice the traditional biopic beats.

‘I, Tonya’ is a captivating character study of a bad ass woman that may or may not deserve redemption, as it thoroughly depends on if one lived during this era. Both Robbie and Janney disappear into their respective characters. While Robbie demonstrates how Tonya evolves in to a pop culture icon, Janney provides annoying bitchy mother LaVona and consequently, no one would want to piss her off. LaVona is a one dimensional and stereotypical mother. One may question why Janney deserved the Academy Award in the first place. 2017 provided fearless mothers onscreen among Janney’s LaVona, Frances McDormand’s Mildred Hayes in ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’, and Laurie Metcalf’s Marion McPherson in ‘Lady Bird’ to name a few. Janney ultimately deserved the Academy Award for a different role such as ‘The Help’ and therefore, this is considered her career achievement award. The respectable supporting cast is arguably underused during a few fundamental scenes. Shane and Derrick required some character development and accordingly, one may be able to justify their actions.

‘I, Tonya’ impeccably examines today’s pop culture through a different lens and how the media reports various events. The media is dependent upon how we perceive the information given and free press is indeed vital to ensure news is provided, regardless of one’s circumstances. Ultimately, ‘I, Tonya’ allows one to construct their opinions about the Tonya Harding controversy and the media as a whole.

Marvel Unleash First ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Trailer

“An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

Anthony and Joe Russo direct the film, which is produced by Kevin Feige. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee are the executive producers. Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the screenplay.”

It’s finally arrived! After months of fan speculation, numerous fake pictures and screenshots of release dates, Marvel have unleashed the first official trailer for the third ‘Avengers’ film, ‘Infinity War’.

The star studded film brings together every hero we’ve met in the last 10 years, including Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Guardians, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Black Panther. They’re all coming together to take on the Mad Titan, Thanos, who we’ve seen very little of and only ever really been teased about the threat he poses to Earth. Last time we saw him he grabbed his currently stone-less Gauntlet and declared “I’ll do it myself”.

In the first post-credit scene, Thor, Loki, Valkyrie, and the Asgardians come face to face with a humongous ship. Fans speculate that ship belongs to non-other than the Mad Titan himself, and that this will tie in with the beginning of ‘Infinity War’.

The heroes also feature in the latest Vanity Fair issue, which includes photos of how some of the heroes will look in the film, but as many have noticed, some costumes (and weapons) don’t seem to match what we know going into ‘Infinity War’, which could mean that the Russo Brothers have plenty of surprises up their sleeves.

Margot Robbie Takes To The Ice In New Red Band Trailer For ‘I, Tonya’

“Based on the unbelievable but true events, ‘I, TONYA’ is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie’s ‘I, TONYA’ is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding’s life and career in all of its unchecked––and checkered––glory.”
