Movie Review: Captain America: Civil War

Movie Review: Captain America: Civil War
It's May, and any Marvel fan knows that typically means the ushering in of a new summer blockbuster from the acclaimed studio. This year’s hero of focus is Captain America in the new installment to his trilogy. Even though the film bares the Captain’s name, it truly feels more like an Avenger’s piece than anything. That’s not a bad thing in this case. While The Avengers: Age of Ultron fell a little flat, Captain America: Civil War picks the franchise up by its bootstraps and breathes new life into it. Marvel spawns off some new heroes as well that may pick up their own movies (stay for the post credit features to see what’s to come.) Civil War picks up nicely where Winter Soldier left off.

Movie Review: Keanu

Movie Review: Keanu
Opening date: April 29, 2016 Score: 4/5 What does George Michael, a kitten and a violent street gang all have in common?

Movie Review: Daddy's Home
Release date: December 26, 2015 Rating: 3 / 5 The comfort level in watching Daddy’s Home  is like being in a fully reclined Lazy Boy this holiday season, which is one of the flaws if this is an attempt to capture the holiday movie crowds. While we all love Ferrell and dream of a day when his comedy greatness will reign true again, we are left with Daddy’s Home , a slapstick family comedy reuniting Ferrell and Wahlberg (T he  Good Guys ) together again to rekindle their almost exact identities from their previous foray together. The storyline is quite simple. Ferrel plays Brad, a kind and quite “vanilla” radio station executive who has taken on the roll of the stepdad to two young tykes Megan (Estevez) and Dylan (Vaccaro), and their mom Sarah (Cardellini). Dusty, the biological father of the two kids is played by Wahlberg...
