Marvel really just keeps on hitting on all cylinders. The Russo brothers have put together two of my three favorite Marvel films in Winter Soldier and now Civil War. They have a lock on how to make these movies serious but still inject the right amount of comedy. That's no small feat.

This is a nice break from the usual punch and grab type action in most Marvel movies. Doctor Strange is a tad more cerebral (key word tad) but comes with stunning visuals that will leave you feeling like you either are on or should be on acid while watching. Cumberbatch is perfect for the role and Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Madds Mikkelson round out a pretty solid cast. My main qualm involved introducing Strange's famous cape and the comedic way they went about it. Other than that, pretty fun time.
Newcome director Colin Trevorrow somehow impressed Steven Spielberg enough to be given the keys to a billion dollar franchise and he doesn't let his boss down. Jurrassic World borrows heavily from the originals and surprisingly Aliens but those nods aside, Trevorrow creates an extremely fun romp that has me curious as to what's next. Pratt proves his spot in Guardians of the Galaxy was no one time deal and that he has no issue playing point man in a blockbuster. If there are any doubts that he is the next big action hero, put them aside now. Its been awhile since we had one.
