Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” prepares for an epic big screen fight   Без рубрики

Sort of quietly and without nearly the fanfare of some other properties, Marvel has seen their Captain America series of films become some of the most popular in their cinematic universe. With the release this week of Captain America: Civil War, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (or MCU) might very well have their biggest hit yet. High praise, I know, especially considering
“A Bigger Splash” showcases Ralph Fiennes and Tilda Swinton in a new light   Без рубрики

There’s almost an embarrassment of riches on display in the new movie A Bigger Splash, at least in terms of the main cast members. Consider how excited most cinema buffs would be for anything that starred Ralph Fiennes and Tilda Swinton, but then factor in how this is a change of pace for them both, along with A Bigger Splash being a high profile title on the fall

A few years back, Jason Bateman made his directorial debut with the amusing yet filthy comedy Bad Words. This year, he has a sophomore feature that just hit screens in The Family Fang.

“Keanu” gives Key and Peele a cinematic showcase   Без рубрики

Now, we have the duo of
Presidential Pets Through the Years   Без рубрики

A range of dogs and cats have kept presidential families company through their stay in Washington, including Fala, Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Scottish terrier; Socks, the Clintons’ cat; and Bo and Sunny, the Obamas’ Portuguese water dogs. Take a look back at the pets that have called the White House home.
