Captain Marvel — Marvelous or Mediocre?

Captain Marvel gives a tribute to Stan Lee in the opening credits that has audience members clapping, thanking him for the wonderful universe he created allowing us to forever remain a kid at heart. Where father and sons, mothers and daughters can come to the theater for two to three hours and live out their child-like fantasies of being a superhero. The film is entertaining. Although the mark is very high, unfortunately, it misses it.

Halloween 2018 Review

Rewriting history is a phrase often used, but seldom done.  But if you could go back in time and erase the history of something very prolific and universal to change the outcome, would you?  Would the outcome really be that much better, or would it cut down on the redundancy of the things that came after making the event that once was so rich and abundant, now comical and predictable?   Halloween 2018 has accomplished the before mention making the final product worthy of its legendary predecessor directed by John Carpenter over 40 years ago.

And yes, the film does have a stereotypical Michael Myers finale, but if you are a fan of horror movies, then you will appreciate it.
