SPOILER FREE Captain America: Civil War is good. It’s very, very good. Great, even. Easily the best Marvel movie (so far), and, in my book, the best superhero movie to date. Themes of responsibility, causality, guilt, and consequences play out in a story that also contains breathtaking, awesome action. Full Story

For a movie starring one of the last real Movie Stars, A Hologram for the King sure did fly under the radar. Based on the Dave Eggers’ novel of the same name, Hologram reunites Tom Hanks and Cloud Atlas co-director Tom Tykwer in the kind of movie that would have been a sure thing twenty years ago but now you can’t pay people to see in theaters. Full Story
