Movie of the Week

Guardians of the Galaxy

Critics Consensus:

A galactic group hug that might squeeze a little too tight on the heartstrings, the final Guardians of the Galaxy is a loving last hurrah for the MCU’s most ragtag family.

Word of the  Week



Part of Speech:

Aggravate, worsen, make more severe. a back-formation from Latin exacerbatio(n), the action noun of exacerbare “to exasperate, provoke”, comprising ex- “(away) from, out of” + acerbus “harsh, bitter”.
