Ranking the Spider-Man Movies

 “SpiderMan: Homecoming” is coming in July, which makes this the perfect time to rank the Spider-Man movies. One of the most popular superheroes of all time, “Spider-Man” finally made his debut on the big screen in 2002. I already mentioned in a previous post that Spider-Man 2 (2004) […]

Kidnap [2017] ★★

Halle Berry plays a mother who would stop at nothing to recover her kidnapped son in this generic action thriller that recycles ever cliché in the Hollywood handbook. That’s not to say that the movie doesn’t have its moments, especially early on. Berry is truly likable and you’ll […]

The Mummy [2017] ★★

The Fate Of The Furious [2017] ★★

 People who follow my blog are probably familiar with my love/hate relationship with the “Fast and the Furious” franchise. I thoroughly enjoyed “Fast Five” for instance, and I especially enjoyed the heartwarming tribute to Paul Walker in “Furious 7”. That being said, I couldn’t care less about “The Fate […]
