Exhilarating. I’m not the first person to use this one word to describe Edgar Wright’s newest film, “Baby Driver.” It’s the story of a young man aka Baby (“Divergent’s” Ansel Elgort) who works for a crime boss named Doc (Kevin Spacey) as his favorite getaway driver. By the time we…

Hollywood just loves Spider-Man. Only five years after Tobey Maguire wrapped up his trilogy of Spiderman films, another set of Andrew Garfield Spider-Man films were released. Three years later, Tom Holland dons the suit in “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” I personally think all casting choices for Spiderman have been great and each…

It’s no secret how I felt about “Batman vs. Superman”—the best thing about it was not the titular characters, but Gal Gadot who played the support hero Wonder Woman. Whenever she had a scene—be it dark or murky—the screen lit up. Gadot brought something which I felt Ben Affleck and…

Despite this being a franchise known for its comedy, I felt a tinge of melancholy for the current installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge” (“Dead Men Tell No Tales” in the US and some other parts of the world.) We find Jack Sparrow even more attached to the…

I watched the press screening of “Messcalibur,” meets “Sword of the Rings,” err, “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” with about 10 friends. Most of them liked it, which puts me in the minority. I tend to agree with the Rotten Tomatoes rating on this one: currently at 27-percent. Throughout…
