Though occasionally uneven, the latest from director Christopher Nolan is a film of towering technical prowess and raw emotional truth.

Great actress - terrible film. Not much else to say about this one.

Spider-Man Homecoming Movie Review

Fresh, fun update of the Spider-Man franchise that sets high-flying heroics against the backdrop of everyday adolescent life. The result is a fun summer carnival of a movie that will entertain long-time fans as well as casual viewers.
