Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Movie Review

San Francisco. It is a bleak, ash-covered world. Lost and devoid of hope, survivors futilely search for meaning after a battle at Wakanda changed the universe with a single snap.

Fantastic Four Teaser Trailer Reaction

Nowadays, pretty much any superhero movie being backed by a major studio becomes a spring/summer blockbuster. Somewhat surprisingly, the superhero genre of action films has started producing really good movies on a more consistent basis.I can’t think of a superhero comic book adaptation post-Green Lantern that drew unanimous distaste from audiences. This being said, 2015’s new Fantastic Four film is a reboot of some of the worst superhero movies out there. Continue reading Fantastic Four Teaser Trailer Reaction
