Captain America: Civil War

May 9, 2016

Superhero fatigue. That’s the buzz word these days on most movie blogs and podcasts. Internet reviewers love to use it, and have jumped on the bandwagon of the phrase’s overuse. It usually makes me roll my eyes, as it seems like an attempt to sound “above all that”. But I have to admit… I may […]
