After years of movies that were both hit and miss at the same time, Spider-Man: Homecoming finally gets Peter Parker and Spider-Man right. There’s a stark contrast between Tom Holland’s version of Spider-Man and previous iterations. The film separates itself from previous movies in the most important way, adventure. Watching Spider-Man: Homecoming felt like
There has been a dark cloud hanging over the DCEU since the days of Man of Steel. Fans have been on both sides of the fence and critics have blasted each iteration since. With the help of online review sites, the reception for the superhero movies has been lukewarm at best. Then came Wonder Woman. Expectations were low for the latest film release from Warner Bros and DC. Fans might
One of the most talked about movies in theaters right now is Get Out. Word of mouth has spread faster than any advertisement for the movie could have hoped.

But this film in its gritty demeanor, dark story, and high body count makes for an amazing
One of the more entertaining movies I’ve stumbled upon on is Imperial Dreams on Netflix. One of my biggest gripes with great actors is when they never fill a role other than the one they can nail.

By Josh Widdowson, Guest Columnist for The Inscriber As I walked into my local theater to watch the reboot of Ghostbusters I couldn’t help but think of Taylor Swift's “Shake It Off” and the line about players gonna play and haters gonna hate. This was due to the negative backlash created when the trailer was released for the film on the internet and became the “worst rated video on Youtube”.
I will start with this, while this article contains SPOILERS, as there will be references to events and characters in the film that can be considered as SPOILERS. If you wish to go in to the film totally surprised, it's best you come back after viewing the movie. Still with us? Good, lets get started then shall we.
