Cloud Zombie's Film Cupboard - Spider-Man: Homecoming, Power Rangers, X-Men: Apocalypse

Happy Wednesday!
It's been a while since the last set of film reviews and there are a few reasons why. One I simply haven't watch many films and two I haven't had the time to do them, I hope these two make up for the lack of film review content.
Three I have been re-watching a lot of films I have already reviewed, the Pitch Perfect Films have got me bad at the moment.
Spider-Man: Homecoming
Peter Parker, with the help of his mentor Tony Stark, tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in New York City while fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man when a new threat emerges. - IMDB 
Finally, A Spider-Man Film That Isn't A Fecking Origin Story!!!
This right here is pretty important, everyone and their dog Mr Truffles knows how Peter Parker got his powers and turned into our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man.
In this film we actually get to see him grow as a person and a superhero while trying to prove himself good enough to be an Avenger. There's no being bitten by a spider and being a superhero, Peter is already at this stage and he knows who he is.

Tom Holland and Michael Keaton work fantastically together in Spider-Man Homecoming, it's great to Keaton on the screen again playing such an interesting character. The supporting cast are not a let down either which sometimes can be the case with a movie of this scale, I am looking forward to seeing what else Tom Holland has to offer in the future as Spider-Man. 

I give this film 5 out of 5.

Power Rangers
A group of high-school students, who are infused with unique superpowers, harness their abilities in order to save the world. - IMDB 
The Power Rangers I know and love are back!
As a person who grew up in the 90's I was super happy to see this film happen but also super nervous. Power Rangers had taken a down turn of late with their crappy costumes and obvious morphers that were most defiantly going to be toys.

The 90's Power Rangers or The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers were the best, the show still knew what it was. 2017's Power Rangers film knows that and had not only kept the true nature of the Rangers at heart but modernised it to fit in with this century a little better. 

Besides Dacre Montgomery (Red Ranger) from the 'Stranger Things' series, the only cast member I recognised was Naomi Scott (Yellow Ranger) who starred in shot lived 'Terra Nova' TV series (which I'm quite sad it got cancelled, damn you America!). Not forgetting Elizabeth Banks (Rita Repulsa) who is a pretty awesome actor, she is great at playing slightly odd characters and Bryan Cranston who probably currently best know for his role in 'Breaking Bad'.

There are some tiny cameos featuring the 90's Power Rangers that will excite any fan of the old series, a great watch for childhood nostalgia. A great Saturday evening popcorn movie.
I give this film 3 out of 5.

X-Men: Apocalypse
After the re-emergence of the world's first mutant, world-destroyer Apocalypse, the X-Men must unite to defeat his extinction level plan. - IMDB
I sadly missed this one in the cinema but got to see it a few weeks ago since we had it sitting in a video library waiting to be watched.
I have been a fan of the X-Men movies for a long while (not 'Last Stand', never 'Last Stand'), I loved the cartoon a lot and sadly never had the chance as a child to read the comics but I'm an adult now that will be buying them to read when the bills stop taking my money.

X-Men: Apocalypse follows on from the last two X-Men films featuring James McAvoy  as Professor X or Professor Charles Xavier. They have been a valuable set of films to the X-Men universe, 'Days of Futures Past' basically retconned 'Last Stand' and it made a lot of people happy.

X-Men: Apocalypse is a pretty neat film that brings out a lot of cool mutants out for an airing, Oscar Isaac is a pretty great villain (despite falling in love with him as Poe Dameron in 'The Force Awakens'). The main X-Men seem to be paid more attention to with their character building and it always great to see that. 
Despite how much fun this film is it is the weakest of the three films, it is still worth the watch.
I give this film 4 out of 5.

Thank you for reading!
