Superman”, but the film and character is indeed the true dawn of justice in the DC Cinematic World. Born on ParadiseRead More

Movie Review: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2’ has heart, humor, and action

TweetThey may be ‘a-holes’, but they are the a-holes who made the A-List of superheroes.  Yes, I’m talking about “Guardians of the Galaxy”, who made something bad out of something good as the highest-grossing superhero film of 2014 opposite “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”.
