    Logan

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "Third time’s the charm,” they say. And the third time was, indeed, the charm for a character who had yet to have a solo critically-acclaimed film.

    Marvel has cranked out box office and critical hits over the last several years using a familiar, yet successful, formula. Logan provides a refreshing change of pace to the previous CGI-created, destruction-laced movies that, frankly, every single previous superhero movie had provided until now.

    Instead, we’re brought to the year 2029, a time where…

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Let me disclaimer this review by stating that Spider-Man is my favorite Marvel superhero (maybe second favorite superhero overall to a certain man with a bat logo on his chest). Having grown up reading the comics, I have a sentimental attachment not only to the hero himself but also to his everyday alter ego, Peter Parker. So with that said, I am likely more critical of a movie adaptation of Spider-Man than the "average Joe," and my issues are likely…
