“Avengers: Endgame” is nothing like anything that has ever come before it. Never before has there been a longer-running, more popular, blockbuster cinematic universe like the one Marvel has carefully constructed over the last 11 years, and “Endgame” is the perfect send-off for a saga of such proportion. ...

“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” provides an excellent and unique take compared to any other Spider-Man movie.

There is always a level of wariness going into a sequel of a well-received film. 2015 brought us “Creed,” directed by Ryan Coogler, and it blew me away. But after learning that “Creed II” would be directed Steven Caple Jr., I had my doubts for the coming sequel. Thankfully, this latest entry into the long line of Rocky movies proves ...

“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” is exactly what you would expect: cheesy dance numbers, catchy Abba songs and predictable romance sequences. A bit overwhelming if you’re a film snob, but luckily, I’m not. Sure, it’s not in the running for Best Picture, but if you don’t enjoy this movie, you’re lying to yourself. So, instead of going to see that dep...
