NOC Review: ‘Hawkeye’ Hits the Bullseye for Holiday Fun

Controversial opinion: After 13 years of storytelling, we simply didn’t get enough time with Clint Barton. I know Hawkeye was never anyone’s favorite Avenger back in 2012.

But he was always going to rank sixth on everyone’s list of favorite OG Avengers.

Gold House and CAPE’s #OneOpen Initiative Kicks Off with ‘Eternals’

True story. When I was growing up there was nothing else I loved more than going to the movies. Anytime my mom or dad would take me to the theater, it was like Christmas. I sat through the Home Alone‘s, the Mrs. Doubtfire‘s, the Disney movies, etc. My time with them, and the big screen, was what ultimately drove the passion I have for this industry. Movies have and always will mean the world to me. And that’s why I’ve made it my goal to do whatever I can to make even the smallest impact on this industry I care about so much.

NOC Review: ‘Eternals’ is a Daring, Bold, Different Direction for the MCU

I’ll get this out of the way now. If you’re expecting Eternals to be standard fare for the MCU, it’s not. This is going to be a divisive movie. And it’s because it’s heavy, it’s out there, it’s a bit slower paced, a bit more disconnected from the established films for now, and it covers a ton of ground.

Kingo Outruns Deviants in a Lexus in New ‘Eternals’ Commercial

Okay, ordinarily we don’t use this site to plug car partnerships.
