Spider-Man

Ever since the explosion of the comic book movie genre in the late ’90s, Spider-Man films have remained a mainstay of the superhero movie landscape.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

The Movie

Upon seeing the movie during it’s original theatrical run, it was hard to escape the idea that Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald felt like easily the most unnecessary film in the Harry Potter series of film adaptations.

That’s a lot …
