‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ is a Marvel of Storytelling and the Best Animation of 2018 (ClickTheCity)

I don't remember having ever been so moved and overwhelmed and awe-inspired by an animated feature like I was with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. What a movie!

Horns had an interesting premise and could have gone so many places but didn't know exactly where to put its focus on and the director didn't have the skill…Read more Reviews for Horns and Big Hero 6

Maleficent: A Modern Fairy Tale Told Right

I'll be honest, I really just watched Maleficent because of Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning. I thought it was perfect casting and Angelina Jolie looks stunning as the wicked witch from Sleeping Beauty. As wicked witches go, I have always thought Maleficent was the most menacing and the most delectable of them all. She was…Read more Maleficent: A Modern Fairy Tale Told Right
