What Have You Been Watching: Luke Cage (2016 – Netflix)

Marvel and Netflix return with another superhero TV series, Luke Cage. Mike Colter first appeared as Cage in Jessica Jones and returns to his own series diving into Harlem. Trying to create a new life for himself, Cage ends up confronting a series of gangsters, Cottonmouth, Diamondback, and Shades with only Misty Knight at his side.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Santos gives Doc holy hell for spoiling a major reveal from Captain America: The Winter Soldier in his review for HorrorNews.Net, but it still did not detract him from enjoying the film emmensely.

Everything in the film gets its chance to be discussed from Chris Evans as Steve Rogers to Robert Redford to Nick Fury and his awesome car chase to The Winter Soldier himself.
