Marvel 'The Avengers: Endgame' Film Review

'Avengers: Infinity War' was a bold, brave film that left audiences shocked and desperate to see revived from the *snap* of Thanos. 'Endgame', as a conclusion to not only that film alone, but the past 20+ MCU films that has formed the first three phases, has a LOT of ground to tread.

It was by no coincidence that the OG Avengers Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye and Black Widow survived the snap, and the film opens with them coming to terms with their failures, mourning the loss of their loved ones and eager to #avengethefallen.

Taylor Swift 'ME!' Official Music Video

Teasing new music for the past few weeks, Taylor Swift last night dropped the first single to her 7th album. Titled 'ME!', Swift set out to create a feel good summer pop anthem.

Collaborating with Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco, 'ME!' is a catchy pop tune that sounds like it should be on an animation's soundtrack. It's mostly fun and universal, though unfortunately devoid of personality and the bridge is slightly too cringe for repeat listens. Unlike 1989's 'Shake it Off', 'ME!' can be a bit much.

'ME!' dropped with a psychedelic video full of colourful visuals; it bedazzles, confuses and overwhelms all at the same time. Opening with Reputation era's Karyn the snake, suddenly bursting into butterflies perhaps signals that Swift is done being 'bad', paving the way for a bubblegum pink era (as evidenced by the pastel shades of her instagram and pink streaks in her hair). It's fun, it's silly, it's a new Swift era.

'ME!' is a fun catchy tune that will likely dominate the airwaves and every shopping mall for the next few months. Bring on #TS7

Disney continues to remake their whole animation catalogue, with Aladdin being the next in line.

The film will be released in May. Check out the trailer below:

Avril Lavigne 'Head Above Water' Album Review

Almost 6 years after her last self titled album, Avril Lavigne is back with her new record 'Head Above Water'. Having been out of the spotlight due to her struggle with lyme disease, Lavigne writes what she claims to be one of her most heartfelt records to date with new label BMG.

'Head Above Water' the title track, and the first song on the record, and the lead single, set expectations high for the record, with soaring vocals and emotional lyrics. Was this the "grown up" record many were expecting would be the natural progression for the now 34 year old?

Disney's 'Frozen 2' Film Trailer Preview

The first teaser of the sequel to the record breaking Disney film 'Frozen' has been released.

The two minute clip primarily sees Elsa trying to battle her way through stormy seas, alone on what looks like an inspired black sandy beach of Iceland. The whole teaser looked a lot less icy and full of autumnal hues, and even the sight of flames. What is disturbing the Arundel?

Expect more from the beautiful world of Frozen, new characters and new songs, perhaps even one that can top 'Let it Go'.

'Frozen 2' will premiere this November. Check out the first teaser below:

2019 Hottest Films

2018 was a suprisingly good year for film, with one of my highest average film scores since 2013. Perhaps I have been more selective with what I'm watching, but there has been some great memorable movies this past year including: 'Crazy Rich Asians', 'Avengers: Infinity War', 'Mission Impossible: Fallout', 'A Star is Born', 'Shoplifters' and 'Leave no Trace'. [I also happened to have watched one of the worst movies ever- 'The Con is On'- which brought the average down]

There isn't that many films on my radar so far for 2019, but what is on there, I am super looking forward to, in particular 'Avengers: Endgame'. 10 years of movies have led to this point, and I am expecting nothing short of an iconic moment for cinema history.

The list will be updated as more films get announced and publicised, but for now, here's my watchlist for 2019.

-Colette (Jan)
