There are a ton of heroes in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie, more than you can shake a stick at. One of the biggest unknowns so far is how The Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) will fit in. This will be the introduction of the character before he moves on to his own stand alone film in 2018. Luckily for all of us, Marvel’s Cinematic Universe Guru Kevin Feige isn’t afraid to talk about how everything fits together. (more…)

Everyone has a cause in which they believe.  If you have any doubt of this, take a look at Facebook after the landmark decision made last week and you will see many, many examples of people who believe in a cause.  However, how often do we actually do something, outside of changing a profile photo or commenting on a post, to contribute to that cause?  Most people stand in solidarity but their stand doesn’t go much further.  Then, you have people like Kevin Doyle. Kevin isn’t a movie star or a celebrity; he isn’t a civil rights activist or a political personality.  Instead, he is simply a good person, doing a good thing, in memory of a woman he loved.  (more…)

back-to-the-future

In a bleak movie universe where everything is up for grabs in the form of a remake or a reboot, one movie franchise will remain untouched, and unsullied, and that franchise is Back to the Future. The year 2015 is an important year for BTTF, as it’s the 30th anniversary of the original movie and the setting for the first act of Back to the Future Part II. And although flying cars, self-drying clothes, and hoverboards have yet to come to pass, we, as a culture, are super-obsessed with the 80s and movie sequels in the 3-D.
