[Rating: Solid Rock Fist Up] ‘Avengers Infinity War‘ may really just be be half of a movie but it’s technically it’s the culmination of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe going back to 2008′s inaugural Iron Man, as well as the springboard for a future of movies that’s sure as hell going to look a lot different after [...]

[Rating: Minor "The Rock" Fist Down] At this point The Rock is like a virus, spreading through Hollywood remaking old properties in his image. Think Agent Smith in the Matrix Revolutions and you’re on the right track. In addition to his hostile takeover of the Fast and the Furious franchise, DJ has a remake of [...]

[Rating: Minor Rock Fist Up] Social media has made it incredibly and horrifyingly easy to learn just about everything we could ever possibly want to know about each other.

[Rating: Solid Rock Fist Up] I love going into a movie, knowing next to nothing about it and being completely sucked into the story and dragged through the mystery as if I was a character along for the ride. Wind River is exactly the type of a slow burn, mystery thriller I need every year [...]
