MPAA Rating: R Stars: Andrew Garfield, Michael Shannon, Laura Dern, Noah Lomax Writers: Ramin Bahrani and Amir Naderi and Bahareh Azimi Director: Ramin Bahrani Distributor: Broad Green Pictures Release Date: September 25, 2015 By now, it is widely accepted that one of the reasons for the 2008 U.S. economic recession was predatory lending practices by banks. One of the ugliest results of this was people getting turned out of their homes, often with no warning and sometimes when the house in question was the only one the residents had ever known. 99 HOMES takes this as a premise and turns […]Read On »

So put your feet up, grab some popcorn and check out this week’s selections. Movies: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN – It’s odd that a franchise that just ended a short five years ago gets a reboot but considering how the third SPIDER-MAN film under the helm of Sam Raimi was without doubt the worst in the series, maybe it was needed.

The Top Ten Gwen Stacy SPIDER-MAN comic Multiverse moments

Gwen Stacy from ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN | (C)Marvel Comics

In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN hitting theatres, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) doesn’t have a familiar red head as his number one squeeze. Mary Jane Watson is not the object of his affections this time around, and instead we have Peter’s first love from the comics Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). Gwen or Gwendy as she is often called was played by Bryce Dallas Howard in a sort of botched attempt to introduce the character into the film continuity in SPIDER-MAN 3, but that wasn’t the actress’s fault – that movie just had far too many problems. So now that new fans are […]Read On »
