My (Mostly) Spoiler-Free Review of “Morbius”, by Angela Rairden

ATTENTION: This blog contains a slight spoiler concerning who the villain of the movie is (which will not be a spoiler to fans of the Morbius comic).

Eternals: My Non-Spoiler Review of a Legendary Tale, by Angela Rairden

"The latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, titled simply Eternals, does a commendable job of condensing seven thousand years’ worth of the title group’s history into a two hour and thirty-seven minute film, while simultaneously engaging viewers in a modern day tale of heroics."
