Poster Amazing Spiderman 2

Release Date:  May 2, 2014
Studio:  Sony Pictures
Director:  Marc Webb
Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, Felicity Jones.
Plot: We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

Thoughts: The Amazing Spider-Man was not a perfect movie by any means, but it was a big step int he right direction. Garfield was able to capture the heart of Peter Parker and the movie had the charm of the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. The sequel is stepping up the stakes and throwing the s#*t into the fan. I’m excited that they aren’t holding back anymore. Give us the big Spider-Man film we all want to see. I just hope they don’t spend the whole time building towards future films (they have already announced 2 more Spider-Man solo films along with 2 spinoffs; The Sinister Six and Venom).

Excited to websling around the city again? Annoyed that there is another installment of the franchise already? Sound off in our comments.

TheOtherWoman-Trailer

What do you do when life gives you a cheating husband/ boyfriend? According to the new movie The Other Woman, you’re supposed to have some fun while planning an incredible revenge for the filthy liar. Also you have to become friends with the other women of your lover. Sounds not so fun? Well, it is actually a very good remedy for the women who are thinking they will just crash in pieces and get into a huge depression if their husband will cheat on them.

The Other Woman is produced by LBI productions in collaboration with 20th Century Fox. It is written by Melissa Stack and directed Nick Cassavetes known for legendary movies like The Notebook, Alpha Dog and Face/Off.  The movie has an extremely talented cast, including very talented actors like Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Don Johnson, Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, Taylor Kinney, the rap queen Nicki Minaj and the bikini bombshell Kate Upton. As you see, this movie has a 100% chance of making you fall in love with it. The women are gorgeous, the jokes are funny and the subject is just so common, what else can you expect from a good movie? Because that’s what The Other Woman is. It is a really good romantic comedy, involving funny characters played by incredible, talented people.

The Other Woman is going to premiere in movie theatres this April. Take your girlfriends or your boyfriend and go the cinema. Watch, feel and laugh. Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann are the perfect partners in crime. They know their man the best and they are about to give him a really mad revenge.

After watching the movie, you will immediately think about what you would do if you were one of “the other women”. That’s what this movie can do to you, it will make you feel the main emotion and reflect on what would your actions be like, in case you’re the one who suffers because of a cheater.

So, what do you do when life gives you lemons? And by lemons, I mean, a cheating lover… You become friends with the other woman and plan to revenge on the main liar of the game.

WWE Elimination Chamber

This PPV was the last before the WWE Network launches and it was a serious hard sell for that new service. WWE Pay Per View revenues are about to plunge and it’s vital to put on a good face for the company right now. Notice I said good face for the company not of the company. So what does WWE do? It once again shows it can’t give the fans (or you can call them the WWE Universe if you want to induce vomiting) what they want.

Much of the PPV was fine stuff. The battle between the two most dominant factions of today, the Wyatts and the Shield, was stellar. Despite both being heel teams the crowd was deeply into the match and cheering for both sides. In fact, a “This is Awesome” chant broke out even before either side had so much as touched each other. The match itself lived up to the hype and was, easily, the highlight of the night.

The Diva’s championship match between AJ and Cameron was decent filler with AJ taking a sick looking accidental kick from her bodyguard Tamina Snuka that almost cost her her championship. Fortunately for her, Tamina was also there to attack Cameron and draw a DJ, letting AJ slip away with the title and extend her record-breaking reign.

The Intercontinental Championship match was better than I expected it to be as Big E Langston and Jack Swagger put on a fine opener with Langston retaining.

WWE New Age Outlaws

Beyond that, the booking was mostly a train wreck. The New Age Outlaws were carried to a marginally decent match by their opponents The Usos; but they have no business being in a WWE ring let alone tag team champions. Billy Gunn is 50 years old. Does he have to have a heart attack in the ring like Jerry Lawler before he’ll think about hanging up his boots. A gymnasium somewhere in Newark is missing its headliners because Road Dogg and Billy Gunn are taking a spot on the WWE roster that deserves to go to a younger, more athletic, team.

I have not seen a match as crapped on by the crowd as the Batista/Alberto Del Rio was in a very long time. Despite del Rio coming to the ring faking an injury, claiming to be unfit to wrestler then attacking Batista with a crutch the crowd still started out cheering him. They moved on to cheering for: Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, RVD, Chris Jericho and I think a few others I missed. They even invented a new term “Bootista” that is up there with “Boo-urns” in terms of cleverness. Batisita was meant to be the company’s major face going into Wrestlemania and the fans are so far from backing him they might as well be on another planet.

Which brings us to the main event. Six men put on what was actually a good match. Cesaro got a chance to shine. Christian and Sheamus appear to be set to collide at Mania and this feud was continued with a great Frogsplash off the top of a pod. Sheamus got to Brogue Kick a Plexiglas plate into Orton. The Wyatts reappeared to attack Cena to set up another likely Mania match and Kane again interfered against Bryan. But, in the end, when Bryan was eliminated and Orton retained, the crowd completely deflated. They weren’t angry. They didn’t hate Orton. They simply could not believe that, once again, the WWE had completely ignored the views they had made crystal clear. The fans want Daniel Bryan as champion going into Mania. And continuing to ignore them is going to start driving fans away in droves no matter how cheap WWE Network may be.

WWE Randy Orton

Also, Hulk Hogan is back and will host Wrestlemania. Sure, whatever.

Did you watch the 2014 Elimination Chamber? Will you be signing up for the WWE Network?

The Grand Budapest Hotel

This March, the new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel premieres in cinemas. It is written by Stefan Zweig and directed by the legendary Wes Anderson. As we see in The Grand Budapest Hotel trailer, this movie looks almost like a fantasy. Everything is just so colorful and it all plays with our eyes and imagination.

The new film recounts the adventures of M Gustave and Zero Moustafa. Gustave H is a famous concierge at this famous European Hotel, Zero is the lobby boy. Many distinguished people are visiting the hotel because of the charming concierge, because, he can conquer the heart of any old, rich lady within seconds. This is a secret dirty passion of his. This is why, our main hero gets into some troubles and together with his true friend Zero, they experience some unbelievable adventures. The young lobby boy is the one who shows what a true friendship means. Next to them, there are a bunch of other characters. All of them will make the public laugh and experience some really nice time.

The Grand Budapest Hotel has an absolutely splendid cast, starring stars like Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, Jude Law, Adrien Brody, F.Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Willem Dafoe, Saoirse Ronan, Tony Revolori, Owen Wilson and many others. Ralph Fiennes looks simply fantastic as M Gustave. Such great actors – no wonder why this movie is going to be huge.

Brought to us by 20th Century Fox and produced by Scott Rudin Productions and Indian Paintbrush, The Grand Budapest Hotel is going to make the audience fall in love with its characters and laugh really hard. There is a lot to see and a lot to laugh about. The critics all around the world say that the humor in this movie gets up to high points.

The visuals are simply amazing, as everything looks magical, but at the same time authentic. Do not miss the opportunity to be next to M Gustave and Zero Moustafa in their adventures. This spring, watch the new comedy/drama The Grand Budapest Hotel and feel the incredible story coming alive.

I absolutely love the Snickers “You’re Not You When You’re Hungry” campaign (the Joe Pesci one being the standout for me). They had a new twist on the commercials premiere last week on the Oscars starring Godzilla. He really is not himself when he gets hungry! Check it out and then keep reading for your chance to take home a #MonsterSatisfaction Movie Prize Pack!

Wrestling

Last month we introduced a new wrestling debate column where we let two wrestling fans, dubbed FACE and HEEL, duke it out over a subject (SEE: How Was the 2014 Royal Rumble?). This week they are arguing if it is a good or bad idea for Sting to join the WWE.

FACE: How could anyone argue that Sting wouldn’t be a great addition to WWE? We’re talking about one of the most storied veterans who has never wrestled in the company. Sting would get to cap off his career at the only true major wrestling company left in the world. It’s good for him, it’s good for WWE. It’s good for fans.

HEEL: Here’s a simple fact: Sting is 54 years old. He’s older than The Undertaker. He’s older than Billy Gunn who WWE has foolishly made tag champ again. As CM Punk said, he has nothing left in the tank. What is WWE going to do with him? A match between him and The Undertaker at Wrestlemania would be horrible. A match between him and anybody else would mean that other wrestler has to carry his broken down body. It’s not worth what WWE would pay him.

FACE: There are a lot of things Sting could help WWE with. Under a legends contract he would be a huge draw.

HEEL: Would he? It has been a long time since WCW. Since 2003 Sting has been languishing in TNA, the fed that fans forgot. His cache is past.

FACE: I think you are wrong. There are a lot of old time fans, parents of kids who watch WWE today, who still remember Sting. He’s still a great talker. He could be a manager. He could be a General Manager.

HEEL: Just what WWE needs, more people who can talk and not wrestle.

FACE: Imagine if Sting had even one match left in him. He could put over some young guy. Imagine the credibility that a guy like, say, Cesaro would get from being the man who ended Sting’s career. And you know Sting is a decent enough guy to do it.

HEEL: I say let TNA keep paying his salary. It will only speed them towards bankruptcy that much faster.

FACE: I can’t imagine TNA is paying him that much. So let him earn some real money towards his retirement. Sting’s biggest objection to WWE has always been the questionable content. These days WWE is PG and TNA is TV-14. It’s actually a better fit.

HEEL: It’s the old line: “it’s better to rule in Hell than serve in Heaven.” In TNA, Sting is unquestionably a star. In WWE he’d be one face lost in a crowd of wrestlers past their prime.

FACE: Bret Hart won the United States championship at 52 despite having had a stroke.

HEEL: And vacated it the next week. It was a joke of a win.

FACE: Bottom line, I think WWE can find a place for Sting and it would be the feather in the cap of his career.

HEEL: Bottom line, Sting should stay where he can be of some help, not just fade into the background of WWE.

How about you? Do you think Sting should end his career in the WWE?
