Spider-Man Homecoming Review

A brief encounter in Civil War (and a highlight) we’ve since wondered how the newest addition to the MCU will fair. Now the sixth Spider-Man film and third cinema incarnation, where does Homecoming belong in the pantheon of Spider-Man 2 and Amazing Spider-Man 2? It’s fair to rank it just slightly below Spider-Man 2 as Homecoming is a delight. It’s nothing revolutionary of the genre but it’s a sure fire success for all parties involved.

Captain America: Civil War Review

captain america civil warArguably the main event of the superhero film-fest that is 2016, Captain America: Civil War has been an event long gestating. Long tensions between these characters and their impact on the world have been building on these heroes and Civil War is the result and explosion of some of these events.

This one is for the books.
