BLACK WIDOW (2021): The Things I Liked…

Focused on the story of Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, we get to learn plenty about the avenger’s complicated past in an engaging tale that features unhealthy family dynamics, secrets, lies and some impressive action/fight sequences.

The main stars, Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour and Rachel Weisz are great. And unsurprisingly, as is the case with most, if not all Marvel movies, the musical score is impressive.

In addition to the action and music, my favourite thing about Black Widow is the sisterly dynamic between Pugh and Johansson’s characters. So much so that I’m ready for more Johansson/Pugh movies.

In terms of where Black Widow sits in my list of favourite Marvel movies, the understandably seemingly abrupt ending aside, I can say that I liked this movie more than I do Captain Marvel (2019). Which of the two films ranks higher for you?

Read my spoiler-free movie review of  Extraction (2020).


In new action / drama Extraction, Chris Hemsworth is Tyler Rake, a fearless black market mercenary who embarks on the most deadly extraction of his career.

Directed by Sam Hargrave; David Harbour, Rudhraksh Jaiswal  and Golshifteh Farahani are among the key cast.

At more than three minutes this trailer feels a tad too long but I’ll still be watching for the suspenseful action, Hemsworth and for the India / Bangladesh setting.

Pankaj Tripathi, Randeep Hooda, Marc Donato, Chris Jai Alex, Geetanjali Thapa, Mir Sarwar, Hays Wellford, Prashant Narayanan, Shataf Figar and Priyanshu Painyuli also star.

Extraction Release Dates: April 24th, 2020 (US) / Netflix…

The long awaited trailer for a stand-alone Black Widow Marvel movie is here.

Starring Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Rachel Weisz, Florence Pugh and Robert Downey Jr., the story focuses on Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) in her quests between the films Civil War (2016) and Infinity War (2018).

Directed by Cate Shortland, additional key cast includes William Hurt, Ray Winstone, O-T Fagbenle…

The fight scenes and action look very promising indeed – and as always, we have another well executed Marvel trailer.

I especially love the music that starts at 0:32 seconds; so unexpected and brilliant, it hits me right in the chest / heart area. I can’t wait!

Michelle Lee, Nanna Blondell, Olivier Richters, Ahmed Bakare, Jade Ma, Yolanda Lynes and Shaina West also star.

Black Widow Release Dates: Jul 9th, 2021 (US)…

SLEEPLESS (2017): New Trailer From Jamie Foxx, Michelle Monaghan, Gabrielle Union…

In Sleepless, Jamie Foxx is a cop with criminal underworld connections and in search of his kidnapped son…

It’s a given that every movie that stars a parent searching for their kidnapped child will always make me think of Liam Neeson’s Taken (2008) – because it’s a great movie and one of my favourite movie experiences of all time. So much so that I kind wish that I had’t seen it yet so I could be thrilled afresh. I hope Sleepless is great.

Sleepless Release Dates: February 24th, 2017 (US)…
