The Star Wars franchise returns with the first spinoff film in this new expanded universe – Rogue One. Excitement flowed through this Star Wars fan all the way up to the release date, but I had some reservations because this is the universe's first deviation from the main storyline. Plus, the ...

Leading up to the release of Doctor Strange, the next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I was equal parts excited and nervous.

The Accountant didn't pique my interest until the trailer was released.

However, when it comes to full length movies, those are...

The second big superhero gladiator battle is finally here with Captain America: Civil War. The first one to be released was Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which was an incredibly disappointing movie. There were some good parts, but it was an overall mess.
