Welcome to the debut of my monthly "Movie Match-Up" series where I put two movies head to head to see which one would come out on top. For this first time feature I have chosen the two big comic book blockbusters in a battle for Marvel supremacy. Will the time travelling mutants prevail or will the rebooted web slinger come out on top?

In an effort to get more reviews posted in a timely manner, I have created the "MiniView" which is a less comprehensive yet still informative version of my normal movie reviews.
A Million Ways to Die in the West is a major motion picture with a really long title. Seth MacFarlane stars in the movie which he also wrote and directed. You also get to see Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman, Giovanni Ribisi, Liam Neeson, and Amanda Seyfried doing and saying really funny things.

To begin my second year covering the Seattle International Film Festival, I chose to take in all the glitz and glamour of the Opening Night Gala as a ticket holder rather than as a member of the press. What an amazing evening it turned out to be with some big announcements, a locally flavored movie premiere, and an after party that capped off a celebration worthy of the festival's 40th year of operation.
