I've always been amazed that 1996's "Space Jam" became such a fixture in pop culture. Besides a great soundtrack, it's a rather awful movie. MJ can ball, but he can't act and the plot is little more than a celebration of Jordan's talent. I've continued to wonder who the target audience of these movies are. [...]

Scarlett Johansson has been a part of the MCU for over 11 years after first appearing in "Iron Man 2." That's a long time for a character as prominent as "Black Widow" to go without a standalone movie or TV series of their own. The reasons (excuses) were the usual misogynistic fare. "No one will [...]
During a televised futbol game a massive blue temporal rift opens up and a small group of humans dressed in black military gear steps onto the field. The leader, her voice somehow already patched into the stadium speakers, tells everyone that they are from the future. Humanity is losing a war against an alien race. [...]
Former AAA licensed bodyguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) hasn't been doing so well after his time spent with hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) in 2017's action-comedy "The Hitman's Bodyguard." Urged by an exasperated therapist, Michael decides to go on a sabbatical free of violence, guns, and stress. He's barely into the first chapter of [...]

I think it's about time they accept the existence of the Devil." How can our legal system lean on one belief [...]
Flexing both his writing and directing skills, John Krasinski provides a sequel that falls just a few decibels below the first.
"Spiral" marks the ninth (!!) film in the "Saw" series, but it is the first that is not directly related to the repeatedly retconned storyline. Carrying the subtitle, "From the Book of Saw" it begins a new chapter with characters who are all aware of the Jigsaw Killer but have never been involved in any [...]
"Voyagers" begins with a fascinating premise. To man a space vehicle that will take 86 years to reach its destination, the crew is bred in a lab and raised in isolation, so they will be unable to miss the Earth they are leaving behind. That concept raises so many ethical and logistical issues which could [...]
As I pressed play, I wondered what was in store for me. My gut feeling was that it would likely be "better" than the Whedon Version, but at what cost? Below is a list of thoughts that danced through my mind while I absorbed the pinnacle of DCEU epicness.
