Consensus Comparison: Captain America: Civil War, Guadagnino, Audiard May 7, 2016

It’s Captain America’s movie, but I’d say Iron Man’s side has the cooler costumes.

For the fourth and final week, there is no Film of the Week.

This coming Wednesday marks the start of the Cannes Film Festival, which is always a time of great excitement for me. Similar to this year’s Berlinale and Sundance coverage, I plan to only tweet about movies once I receive five reviews. More, untweeted pages will be available on both the homepage and in the Cannes 2016 Index, which will be posted mid-week.

Lastly, this site has now been around for three years. I’m grateful I’ve been able to keep going for this long. I expect every year to be the last, and yet we persist. Thanks so much for using this site. I hope you still find Critics Round Up a useful resource.
