“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’”

But Beetlejuice just wouldn’t be the same if he didn’t have the eternally goth Lydia around to poke fun at, so it’s pretty exciting that there is an extremely good chance Winona Ryder will also be coming back to reprise her role. As … Continue reading Winona Ryder Interested In Coming Back For Beetlejuice 2

Michael Keaton Joins Aaron Paul In Need For Speed
