New "Spider-Man" Trailer! This One Actually Makes Me Want to See the Movie! 
Like most folks, my mind still has fresh memories of the Tobey Maguire/Sam Raimi "Spider-Man" collaboration, so I was hesitant, at least in the beginning, to welcome this new film starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. But I adore director Marc Webb, the guy who gave us the fantastic "500 Days of Summer," so this may be worth it.

And the new trailer, just released by Sony Pictures, is a much, much better representation of the new "Spider-Man." More action, more Lizard (Rhys Ifans), more brooding, more mischief! In shore, more fun!

We'll see if the film will entangle us in a web of entertainment when it opens on July 3rd. For now, enjoy the latest trailer of our friendly, neighborhood "Spider-Man!"

Brand New "Expendables 2" Trailer, Lovingly Introduced by Sylvester Stallone 
I enjoyed the first "Expendables," at least until the "business as usual" third act. We'll see on August 17th if the sequel is better than the original. Take a look at this testosterone-filled action extravaganza:



Synopsis

The Expendables are back and this time it's personal... Barney Ross, Lee Christmas, Yin Yang, Gunnar Jensen, Toll Road and Hale Caesar -- with newest members Billy the Kid and Maggie aboard -- are reunited when Mr. Church enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time -- six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way....

Marvel's "The Avengers' Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Do Our Favorite Superheroes Get? 


Joss Whedon, the creator of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” is the guiding force behind Marvel’s “The Avengers.” One of the most memorable aspects of “Buffy” was its remarkable usage of team spirit. Together, the gang of Buffy, Willow, Xander, and Giles defeat demons.


So it makes perfect sense for Whedon to apply his team-building knowledge to write and direct “The Avengers,” a film that puts together a group of Marvel superheroes. The result is an exhilarating journey about powers and great responsibilities. Read More...
