Imagine being in a roller coaster car clicking and clacking up and up into the sky. The anticipation and sheer suspense is so strong you can taste it in the back of your throat.

It may take more than a spoonful of sugar to make the new "Mary Poppins" movie go down without an ironic gulp or two. more
All Jason Momoa has to do is show up. The star of “Aquaman” possesses such screen presence, he could play a bit role in a ramen soup commercial and have audiences drooling ... more
The new feature, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” pretty much puts to shame all of the animated super-hero fare in our own lowly universe. more
