If you wish to stay pure, then hold up your own mighty shield and block the evil spoiler that lies beneath. This report has been covered for 2 reasons.

On with it then, shall we. If you don’t want to be spoiled then STOP NOW! (more…)

If the answer is yes, well then, carry on. (more…)


Two months from tomorrow Captain America: The Winter Soldier will come barreling into theatres nationwide and kick off the summer blockbuster season. With it comes a lot of expectations: Will it live up to Captain America: The First Avenger? How will it stack up against Marvel‘s other post-Avengers flick, Iron Man 3? Does it do justice to the beloved “Winter Soldier” comic arc?
