The story here isn't new but the cast is superbly chosen and one takes an instant liking to them. In the era of CGI and green screen mega-blockbusters, this film is warm and charming and if you let it... will let you spill a tear or two. Chris Evans proves that once he puts down the round shield, he still has a career in Hollywood. The director uses the cast well and let's them embrace and grow into their roles. Thoroughly enjoyed this film.

Spider-Man: Homecoming
12 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

While this film breaks no new ground, it does have it's charms. Tom Holland is easily the best actor to assume this role and he seems to thoroughly enjoy his time on screen. The obvious tie-ins to the MCU are apparent but not too overwhelming. Michael Keaton is excellent in the role of the villain but is terribly under used in the film. If future films can keep Spiderman within the context of NYC and on the level of shows like DareDevil and Jessica Jones... this new franchise can succeed and thrive. If they throw him into the alien invasion galactic CGI sagas of the Avengers... it'll probably fail.

Suicide Squad
Suicide Squad (2016)
11 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is a standard entry into the ever increasing collection of superhero movies. As such, it's not very interesting. In this case, a collection of misfit "super-villians" coerced by a woman who's actually as much of a sociopath as any of them, into battling a menace that wouldn't have existed is she hadn't tried to make a group of super-villian commandos. Only Margot Robbie's performance stands out in this bland cast. But to be fair, only her Jared Leto and Will Smith were given any opportunity to do anything in this bland, formulaic movie. To address the issue of how Jared Leto's Joker was slighted and how the audience missed out on a stellar performance... To that I give a big raspberry. He's more of a cross between Jack Sparrow/Jack Nicholsen rather than the Oscar winning performance Heath Ledger gave us more than a decade ago. It's going to be another forgettable superhero movie. Just like Hollywood, for the most part, keeps churning out and will continue to do so until they remember that good movies, no matter how many explosions and green screen monsters you put in them, are really about people.

Captain America: Civil War

The best of the summer blockbuster films. A little darker than CA: The Winter Soldier, this movie lives up to it's hype and is one of the better entries in the Marvel cinematic universe.

X-Men: Apocalypse

Finally got around to seeing it and was pleasantly surprised. One of the three blockbuster superhero films of the summer and falls comfortably between the excellent Captain America: Civil War and the boringly tedious Batman V. Superman. While both B v. S and X-Men are basically a movie building up to a climatic battle... X-Men benefits by having superior acting performances and touches of humor throughout. Well worth the 2.5 hour investment.
