SBox Recommends: Spider-Man — Homecoming (Movie Review)

Note: SBR never spoils. You are safe. Enjoy!

Welcome back to SBox Recommends, where our motto is “Every film has its fans”. Here I review a movie and then determine who will like it best and who will like it the least.

This was far and away my most anticipated film of 2017. I’ve loved Spider-Man with a passion ever since Tobey Maguire first played him when I was 4 years old. I’ve seen every movie and loved them all (yes, even the bad ones), and few people were as excited as me when Spidey was finally announced to join the MCU. This excitement was further solidified by the fact that the character stole the show in Civil War last year, and making us all wish this movie would just come already. And come it finally did. Was it worth the wait? Continue reading SBox Recommends: Spider-Man — Homecoming (Movie Review)

My Quick Thoughts on Spider-Man Homecoming Trailer #1 (& Brief Guardians Thoughts)

It broke my heart back in July when I heard that the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer was being shown for attendees of San Diego Comic Con, and I wasn’t able to see it. (Damn you SDCC exclusives)! Keep in mind that I’m a huge fan of both Spider-Man and the MCU, so I couldn’t wait to see how Sony and Marvel planned on taking the web-slinger now that he’s been officially inducted into the MCU. I along with everyone who saw Captain America: Civil War fell in love with how he was portrayed in that film, but can this new Spidey stand on his own as a contributing member of the universe?

It’s strange how far we have come in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Can you believe we have reached the point where we’re talking about the final Captain America movie? So strange. Though I have to admit, this particular Captain America movie goes a bit beyond being just a Captain America movie. This is the rising action of the Marvel story arc; the point where we’re no longer setting up the world and are now introducing the conflict. And what better way to introduce that conflict than with war? Continue reading SBox Recommends: Captain America – Civil War (Movie Review)

My 2015 Movies: Avengers – Age of Ultron (#6)

Every year, including this one, my most anticipated film is always a Marvel film. Lord knows my family and I were super pumped for Avengers 2 considering Marvel’s cinematic winning streak since 2008. We couldn’t wait for this film. We even assigned each other Marvel character T-shirts for the occasion of watching the movie opening weekend. (I wore the Ultron short). And thank God this movie turned out to be just as awesome as we wanted it. Continue reading My 2015 Movies: Avengers – Age of Ultron (#6)

My Quick Thoughts on Captain America: Civil War Trailer 2

Probably my most anticipated film of 2016, Captain America: Civil War just keeps looking better and better. As an avid Marvel movie fan, I am always looking forward to the next big Marvel outing. This is especially true in this case as everything is clearly starting to turn ugly in the MCU. You know things are going down when everyone, and I mean everyone, is coming to kick ass and take names. And that’s solidified with this final trailer for Civil War. Continue reading My Quick Thoughts on Captain America: Civil War Trailer 2

SBox Recommends: Avengers 2: Age of Ultron

This was my most anticipated film of 2015. In a year that is chock filled with highly anticipated films- from Star Wars to Jurassic World to Fast and Furious– this was the movie I had my eye on. That’s because I’m a huge fan of Marvel’s line of movies and the first Avengers film. But with great hype comes a great amount of skepticism. The first Avengers film is a hard act to follow, let alone attempt to overtake. People still say that it’s the greatest comic book film ever. And that’s the chief question this time around: Is it better than the first one? As debatable as it is to say, I would say “yes”. Continue reading SBox Recommends: Avengers 2: Age of Ultron
