At two and a half hours, Captain America: Civil War feels much like its title promises – an extended chaos. If rumors are to be believed, this film is the third and final installment in the Captain America trilogy. But given its huge success at the box-office, and being it is Hollywood; Marvel and Disney, we can rest assured “surprise” sequels are on their way...

Was Jesus the first real Commie? (or at least the first socialist?) Hail, Caesar! is the Coen brothers amusing tribute to Hollywood's Golden Age; an homage that both honors the grandiose scale of 1950s Hollywood, while, at the same time, ridicules the actors, directors, screenwriters and producers behind the well-oiled film-producing machine.

Much like the empty calories of the Diet Coke that shamelessly escorts the Silver Screen’s snacks, Avengers: Age of Ultron is quickly forgotten. Consider it a preview for typical mid-Summer entertainment.

Following the spirit of the film's theme, which is largely based on the ten percent brain myth, it is fair to say that Lucy uses just about 20 percent of its concept's potential. After an excellent opening, the plot quickly derails into the expected path of violence; one that counts on the audience’s inherent intelligence not surpassing the three to five percent range...

The second installment in Marvel Comics Captain America's superhero franchise is violent, wickedly silly, and very predictable. What this film lacks in plot twists and subtlety it makes plenty in engaging action scenes, well-executed special effects, and witty comic-relief lines.
