Captain America: Civil War

Rating: 4 of 5   I rather feel like I said most everything I needed to in my review of Captain America: Civil War. Because with good movies, words don’t really capture everything that’s done well. It’s the sort of thing…

best tv of 2014

This is perhaps the longest into a new year I’ve waited to post my tv list. The problem was, is, whatever, that I’m not excited about it. Which is more about the tv shows than about the list itself (we…
