THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is currently playing in theatres, and this new version of the web-head is unlike any we seen before.

ASSIGNMENT X spoke with Jerome Chen the Sr. Visual Effects Supervisor on the film, and even though the Lizard is the current villain, we couldn’t help but wonder what might be next for the web-headed wonder. Chen gave us a very specific place in […]Read On »

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 »

Getting a chance to move into the big budget superhero world of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN was a thrill for actress Emma Stone who tackles the iconic Gwen Stacy in the film reboot of the classic character. “You realize there is so much material when it comes to Spider-Man,” admits Stone, who had just came off THE HELP, which was also based on a book. “THE HELP was one big book, but this was 50 years of comic book material. You can’t please everybody. You just have to bring the character to life in the best way you know how and […]Read On »

While the 85th Annual Academy Awards was short of surprises (or for that matter an truly engaging telecast), it did have Billy Crystal returning as host for the ninth time). Although he played it safe, and came dangerously close to crossing the line at others, he still provided a polished sheen that kept the proceedings afloat. Should he have been funnier? Probably. Was he better than James Franco and Anne Hathaway last year? Definitely, yes. However, the Oscars are really about the winners, so without further ado, here is the master list of who got what including the slam dunk […]Read On »

CD Review: THE HELP soundtrack

Perhaps no member of the Newman clan broke from the lush, namesake sound of Lionel and Alfred more than the latter’s son David- at least to begin with. Bringing his first interest of alt. rock to such joyously groovy late-80’s comedy scores of DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN, THE MAN WITH ONE RED SHOE and REAL GENIUS, Thomas Newman’s immediately impressed with its youthful hipness. But just as soon, Newman revealed his namesake’s mature, symphonic talents through LESS THAN ZERO, MEN DON’T LEAVE and DECEIVED. Rather than one style or the other, Thomas Newman’s scores have been distinguished through their frequent fusions […]Read On »

I was completely sucked […]Read On »
