Me Before You is a movie based on the best swelling book by Jojo Moyes.  The opening scene starts out with what everyone should avoid- talking on a cell phone and the dangers that happen when you don't pay attention to your surroundings.   In the beginning, the story seems to be about a disabled man in need of being shown what life is...

FORGET BATMAN VS SUPERMAN!The Real DC Competition would be the battle of Gotham VS National City!  If you're looking for more than just CGI effects in a 2 hour, depressing, "my mother's name is Martha too let's be friends" fest… then you need to be watching DC on TV, because the television DC Universe is HANDS DOWN beating the...

The Joke Is Killed by Hype & Expectations It's the death of so many movies and the one thing most project can never live up to. It's so frustrating because fans see the teasers, hear all about the dedication of bringing out the best in the project and the "early word on the street" is that it's the best ever made.  By the ti...
