‘Spider-Man: Far from Home’ review: Peter’s a dumbass in this movie

Since the news broke two weeks ago that Sony and Marvel Studios are parting ways, which has huge implications for the future of Spider-Man and his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I'm dusting off this review of Spider-Man: Far from Home which I meant to post 2 months ago but never got around to polishing until now.

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ review: Love it, though darker and less exuberant than the first

Half the world -- excluding North America and a few other unlucky foreign markets who only get it after May 1 -- went to watch Avengers: Age of Ultron over the past weekend. If you are the unicorn who intends to but hasn't yet: GO WATCH IT NOW. Because here there be (minor) spoilers, unless you don't mind reading them.

Movies Coming Soon: January to March 2015 – Part 1

Though 2014 wasn't a remarkable year for Hollywood, 2015 is looking good. Every entertainment website on the internet, whether of note or not, has already listed their most anticipated movies for the year, so I shan't add my voice to the chatter.
