Movie Review: Marvel’s Ant-Man

Marvel Studios’ newest and tiniest superhero is here. The 12th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise, Ant-Man continues their winning formula.

Great Odin’s beard, Thor’s a woman!?!?

Making the media rounds is Marvel Comics’ latest release and new series about everyone’s favorite god of thunder and wielder of mighty Mjolnir, Thor. Well kinda.

SummerSlam 2014 Review: The Pay-Per-View We Deserved (*spoilers*)

Since Wrestlemania in April, there haven’t been any storylines that have culminated the way neither fans nor I thought they should. WWE consistently seemed to believe that fans had Alzheimer’s with the pumping out of watered down plots that held no real substance. Every year, SummerSlam is usually the turning point to set up for Royal […]
