It all started in 2008 with the first release of Iron Man. From the first introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a movie featuring the Avengers going up against Thanos has been highly anticipated. Here we are, years later, a dozen new characters introduced, and only months away from the biggest event in the MCU. Avengers: Infinity War is in our sights and Good Morning America just released the first trailer.
There was no other Marvel show I looked forward to the most than The Punisher. From season two of Daredevil, I was hooked on Jon Bernthal as the anti-hero Frank Castle.

For some unknown reason, whenever I think of the film Wind River, I want to start singing ‘Moon River’ by Andy Williams. No idea why; it just happens. Wind River is a film by Taylor Sheridan, who is also responsible for such thrillers as Sicario and Hell or High Water. This latest film stars Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen, in very snowy Wyoming.
