Let's call this a reverse review. I am giving my final opinion early because that is how fantastic this film is. Logan is the greatest movie involving Hugh Jackman's Wolverine which is increasingly appropriate considering it is Jackman's last run for the character. While the quality of X-Men films has...

It had been a Saturday night and I was home alone. Maybe 11:45pm had not been the best time to start watching a movie but we all make responsible decisions.

In 133 minutes, the movie that extends the wizarding and magical world does not disappoint. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” was shared everywhere across the United States on November 18, and I saw it almost a week later. Waiting that week to see the movie was taunting as the excitement...

I normally know a lot about most things Marvel related, but I never read or researched anything Doctor Strange related because it has never caught my attention. Because of that, I went into this movie armed only with...
