D.C.’s Take: “Daddy’s Home 2”

 - 

Never bring high expectations to comedy sequels. Why’s that? Because a lot of times, they don’t end up being better than or even just as hilarious as their predecessors. It’s really tough for Hollywood to bring back that initial audience to enjoy the same char... More »

D.C.’s Take: “Thor: Ragnarok”

 - 

Not that this is all that shocking, but 2017 is looking pretty solid for Marvel Studios, with the success of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming”, respectively. Now, we have the third Marvel film to come out this year and the 17th film... More »

D.C.’s Take: ‘Get Out’

 - 

Jordan Peele is one of the funniest comedians working, especially this decade. He’s known for, of course, his successful Comedy Central show “Key and Peele,” with Keegan-Michael Key, that I loved. I’ve always loved his work. But it looks like he’s taking a dif... More »
