Interstellar

‘Interstellar’

Nathan Fisher November 13, 2014
I am a huge fan of movies that explore the final frontier: space. My voyages to unknown worlds in “Star Trek” and going to infinity and beyond in “2001: A Space Odyssey” (or maybe that was “Toy Story") left me chomping at the bit for Christopher Nolan’s newest film, “Interstellar.”"

Captain America: A Superior Sequel

Captain America: A Superior Sequel

Nathan Fisher April 10, 2014
Captain America has always been my least favorite “hero” because he seems a bit of a dud.
