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.

I was surprised a couple months ago by the announcement that NBC was reviving Fear Factor and I think I’m still in shock that a new episode of Beavis & Butthead aired on MTV this past Thursday, but both of those shows coming back pale in comparison to the news that broke last night from FOX… the network is bringing back the 90s cult sketch comedy In Living Color.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the new version of the show will bring back its creator Keenen Ivory Wayans as host and executive producer for two half hour specials during midseason, then depending on how the ratings are, Fox has an option for a full series order. If you don’t remember In Living Color, you can rest assured that it was funnier than Fox’s MADtv and much more outrageous that Saturday Night Live. The show launched the careers of Keenen Ivory Wayans (along with the whole Wayans clan; Damon, Shawn, Marlon and Kim) along with Jamie Foxx, David Alan Grier, and of course Jim Carrey (who stole the show for me with Fire Marshall Bill… FOX I don’t care what you have to do, or how much you have to spend, if the show goes to series you have to do something to get Carrey appear in the role down the line).

Can we expect any other shows to make a return? I’d love to see more 90s shows make a comeback. How about The Secret World of Alex Mack? Or how about another new Saved by the Bell? Who’s the Boss? Boy Meets World could now be Man Meets World? The possibilities are endless.
