The Great Wall: new Matt Damon fantasy movie.

Captain America: Civil War (2016) (Blu-ray film review).

In many respects, the film ‘Captain America: Civil War’ is an ‘Avengers’ film in all but name. It even introduces the Black Panther and a certain webcrawler into the fold and shows how effective a force such as a Giant Man can be as he defies the Square-Cube Law and takes on anyone in sight. […]
