Movie Review: Silence (2016)

Christianity came to Western Japan in 1542 by way of Jesuit missionaries from Portugal who brought gunpowder and religion.

The Rhino. The Green Goblin. Electro. They’re all on display in Marvel Studio’s latest superhero movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. They all, for one reason or another, also want to see Spider-Man destroyed. Aside from them (even though they play a huge part in the movie), focus is paid to the blossoming relationship between Peter…

Movie Review: The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

Our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is back to spinning a cinematic web that returns him to his roots, but where familiarity resides, so does a daring creativity emerge that makes this Spidey a fantastic and fascinating force to be reckoned with.
