“Peter Parker tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens with his superhero alter-ego Spider-Man, and must confront a new menace prowling the skies of New York City.” —IMDB

It took forever to see this movie. You may think that since I work at the theater, I get to see the movies, but that is not the case. I do not get to see the movies when I am working, and after a hard-long weekend, the last thing on my mind is going to the movies. So just keep that in mind the next time you ask the person selling you the tickets if they have seen the movie yet. Continue reading “Thankfully Light and Fun | Review of ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’”

New Avengers Featurette Explains Black Widow’s Expanded Role On The Team


By: Sean O’Connell In the grand scheme of things, Black Widow isn’t a household name like Iron Man, Captain America or Thor. But Scarlett Johansson certainly has name recognition (and facial recognition), so it’s no real surprise that Marvel Studios is rolling out a character featurette with The Avengers on the horizon to alert audiences – primarily female ticket buyers – that there’s a lady hero they can get behind in this potentially-testosterone-laden blockbuster. This new Black Widow clip comes to us exclusively from E! Online. Click here to view it on their Web page (it auto-plays, annoyingly). Most of … Continue reading New Avengers Featurette Explains Black Widow’s Expanded Role On The Team
