In my little review of Doctor Strange today, I referred to it landing in the middle of the pack in terms of the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe. So, it seemed only fair that I put together an actual list ranking all 14 MCU films. This is a rare instance w...

DOCTOR STRANGE: My Spoiler-Free Quickie Review
Dazzling visuals aside, DOCTOR STRANGE is a superhero origin story that is not only cut from the same cloth as movies like BATMAN BEGINS and IRON MAN , you can actually see the seams where they stitched in elements from both flicks. But also like those two ...

Now retiring...Numbah Two...Derek Jeter...Numbah Two...
I’m a lifelong Yankees fan. I may not have always loved the ownership or even most of my fellow fans — but my love of the team has never wavered. I idolized players like Nettles, Gossage, Mattingly, Winfield and Guidry. I was thrilled and then repelled by t...
