Spider-Man: Sam Raimi Film Turns 20 Years Old

Spider-Man might not have been the first comic book adaptation to hit the big screen but the film helped pave the way for the MCU. The film’s 20th anniversary comes as Sam Raimi is opening up Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Because of licensing, Raimi’s Spider-Man films didn’t feature any characters unless the license was owned by Sony Pictures, of course. This why a fan like me was happy to see the MCU…

Jamie Dornan Is Right About Fan Backlash

Jamie Dornan is right about fan backlash over the casting of Daniel Craig and Robert Pattinson as James Bond and Batman, respectively. We see this every time that studios announce their lead actor for a James Bond, Marvel, DC, or Star Wars movie. The fan backlash needs to stop. I mean it! What I encourage fans to do is just be patient and reserve judgement until after watching the movie. Films tend to be more…

Spider-Man: No Way Home and the Oscars

Spider-Man: No Way Home would take home a Popular Film Oscar in a heartbeat but the film was never getting a Best Picture nomination. You’re only kidding yourself if you thought it had a chance for Best Picture. It never did. The film might be emotional and full of fan service but at the end of the day, it was never getting a Best Picture nomination. I say this as a Marvel fan. A film…

Spider-Man: No Way Home Is Epic Fun

Spider-Man: No Way Home is an epic film but you’re best off going into the film knowing very little about it because it’ll ruin the fun. If you know the Marvel films by now, you already know to stay for the end of the credits. Outside of this, I’m going to do the challenging thing and try to write about the film without spoiling it. The film continues right where Spider-Man: Far From Home leaves…

Spider-Man: Far From Home Starts A New Chapter

Spider-Man: Far From Home has the main responsibility of dealing with the after effects of Avengers: Endgame, including the Midtown High students. If you’ve seen trailers for the film, you have probably already shown a good part of what’s going on.  Regardless of that, there’s a certainly lot of film not seen in the trailers.  Let me warn you now: there’s a mid-credits scene and a post-credits scene.  Also: if you read nothing else before…

Spider-Man: Homecoming: The Road to Endgame

Spider-Man: Homecoming is the best incarnation of Spider-Man on the big screen as the web-slinger joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe in his first big screen adventure. Following his brief appearance in Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland) returns to the big screen for a new adventure.  For years, there was talk of Larry David playing the Vulture if Sam Raimi had been allowed to make a fourth Spider-Man movie.  I don’t know how…

The Walt Disney Company Will Own The 2019 Box Office

Films under the Disney umbrella earned over $3 billion at the box office in 2018 but the company is looking to exceed expectations in 2019. When one looked at the 2018 calendar, Disney films accounted for at least one film every month.  As pointed out by The Big Picture, Disney CEO Bob Iger tightened things down to the point that the studio releases about a dozen films a year or less.  The Mouse didn’t release…

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse features many surprises and prevents the superhero genre from going stale by injecting a fresh bite. This is one of the biggest films of the year in which I suggest going in completely cold.  It means not reading reviews or watching trailers until after seeing the film.  I say this because we’re not without the typical surprises.  However, some of this comes by way of the voice roles not provided in…

Stand-alone Venom doesn’t work

Venom has long been considered to be a villain in Spider-Man canon and this is why Venom doesn’t quite work as a stand-alone film. There are various aspects of the film that stay true to the comics.  There are other aspects where the film does its own thing.  True to fashion, Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) was run out of the Daily Globe in New York.  There’s no reference in the film to Peter Parker or Spider-Man…
