Review – Spidey Spins A Sequel (“Spider-man: Far From Home”)

With the climax of Avengers: Endgame, the swan-song of a couple of the Avenger superheroes, and Spider-man still going strong, thus ends Phase Three and the beginning of Phase Four of the MCU juggernaut.

Review – A MARVELous Ending (“Avengers: Endgame”)

In all my years I’ve never seen this kind of buzz or excitement for a movie. But, after watching (and enjoying) every Marvel movie for over 20 years, I really shouldn’t be that amazed. *SPOILERS AHEAD!* * * It’s the sequel to last year’s mega-blockbuster event, Avengers: Infinity Wars and, in case you were hiding…
