Tangled Webs (Spider-Man: Far From Home, 2019)

After the massive epic that was Avengers Endgame, a smaller story to actually close stuff off may seem like an odd choice. And yet?  Well, it may have been what was needed. Bringing back director Jon Watts and the cast of Homecoming, we get… Continue Reading “Tangled Webs (Spider-Man: Far From Home, 2019)”

That’s It… For Now (Avengers: EndGame, 2019)

This is a Spoiler Free Review.  This also means it will be super short. So, back in the early days, the plan was to have a two part Avengers: Infinity War. Then Marvel announced that this would not be the case.  There would be… Continue Reading “That’s It… For Now (Avengers: EndGame, 2019)”

You Can Never Have Too Much Spider-Man (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, 2018)

A few years ago, after the big Sony hack, Sony and Marvel resumed the failed talks about  Spider-Man films. It resulted in the very fun Spider-Man: Homecoming, pretty much run by Marvel. But Sony still holds the rights to do with the Spider-Man characters… Continue Reading “You Can Never Have Too Much Spider-Man (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, 2018)”

Is it the End of an Era?

The Never Ending Story (Avengers: Infinity War, 2018)

In 2008 Marvel began their ambitious plan of creating a cinematic version of their comic book universe. The lead up to the Avengers seemed like a giant mountain to climb…and it paid off for Marvel. And over and over, Marvel saw themselves succeed.  And… Continue Reading “The Never Ending Story (Avengers: Infinity War, 2018)”

Swing High (Spider-Man: Homecoming, 2017)

Spider-Man has the distinction of having been rebooted three times in the last fifteen years.  Both the Raimi Films and the Marc Webb films have good points.  Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 is a high point for super-hero themed films.  But they also never quite fully… Continue Reading “Swing High (Spider-Man: Homecoming, 2017)”

Lost to An Alternate Universe?

So, the day Sony and Disney drop the new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer (which was met with a pretty positive response) producer Amy Pascal drops the bomb. One of the things that I think is so amazing about this experience is that you don’t have… Continue Reading “Lost to An Alternate Universe?”

Something Strange Going On That Wasn’t Here Before (Doctor Strange, 2016)

Every now and then, Marvel Studios opts for a riskier venture for their tent-pole pictures.  In some cases, such as Thor, the risk is levied by the Avenger’s Connection.  But sometimes, that connection is much thinner.  Guardians of the Galaxy and now Doctor Strange.… Continue Reading “Something Strange Going On That Wasn’t Here Before (Doctor Strange, 2016)”
