Now You See Me 2

The original Now You See Me was a great "watch in the middle of the day" kind of movie. All I really wanted from the sequel was to be just as good at being that kind of movie and, I think, they succeeded. 6737

Avengers: Age of Ultron

The next entry in the MCU and the last for Joss Whedon. Age of Ultron is an action packed superhero movie that, once again, features Whedon's wit. This review contains some spoilers, but I tried to leave the big stuff out. 3131

When Dan hears her play, he's able to imagine what her music could sound like and tries to sign her. After he tells her the truth and the two get to know each other, Gretta goes with Dan to his record label to pitch the idea of her doing a record. Dan's old partner isn't thrilled about the idea, but agrees to let her put together a demo. Instead of doing the Demo, Dan and Gretta decide
