Review by Henry Varona


In the summer of 2012, Marvel embarked on a bold new vision for one of their premier heroines. Carol Danvers, a longtime member of the Avengers, took up the mantle of Captain Marvel and changed the face of Marvel forever. Suddenly Carol Danvers transformed into one of Marvel’s most popular heroes and the “Carol Corps” (The loving name for Captain Marvel fans) had become one of the most powerful voices in the world of comics. Now, years later, Marvel Studios has launched Carol in her first film role. As a proud member of the Carol Corps, I can say that not only does this movie honor the legacy of Carol Danvers, it also provides viewers with one of the most unique heroes in Marvel’s pantheon, showing that there is limitless potential from the superhero juggernaut!

Shop Aquaman: http://ow.ly/aRQ130n35Ox

Review by Henry Varona


Aquaman is a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster. Let that sink in for a moment. As a fan who was introduced to the hero through various cartoons like Super Friends and Justice League, I’ll admit that I never thought I would see this day, but I am thrilled to witness it. Aquaman proves all the haters wrong, whether they be critics of the DC Extended Universe or the character itself, with a fast-paced and stylized movie that is sure to bring a smile to the face of even the most-jaded fan. With dazzling visuals, fun action, and a strong cast, Aquaman makes a great case for being the best DC movie of the decade.

Review by Henry Varona


As far back in my life as I can remember, Spider-Man has been a part of who I am. Spidey was fundamental to my understanding of what a hero could be, who lived behind the mask, and how they would face their struggles. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse understands that this is one of the greatest strengths of the character, and the creates a unique movie experience that absolutely blew me away. With action, laughs, and engaging characters, it delivers across the board with delights for fans new and old.

Midtown Suicide Banner

Review by Enrique Varona

The Suicide Squad is one of the coolest concepts in all of comics. An elite group of crooks and convicts forced to the dirty work for the government. It combines the thrills of The Dirty Dozen with the guilty pleasure of focusing on the villains of the DC Universe. David Ayer’s film adaptation had a lot of hype to live up to, both from the comic book community and the summer blockbuster crowd. Luckily, Suicide Squad not only lives up to the hype, it surpasses it in many ways. It is a strong entry in the emerging DC Cinematic Universe and exposes fans new and old to some of the best villains that DC has to offer.
