The Amazing Spider-Man is a Soulless Corporate Blockbuster. Michelle’s Review

amazing-spider-man-2-movie-review

In an evil Green Goblin Broadway voice, sing with me, Spider-Man, Spider-Man, radioactive Spider-Man. After receiving lukewarm reviews from most and a downright hateful one from yours truly, The Amazing Spider-Man didn’t exactly set the world on fire. They have a lot to live up to in the bigger budget sequel and are clearly betting the whole friendly neighborhood on it being a smash. The entire cast from the first film returns for the sequel, but then that’s not saying much as it wasn’t a particularly big one to begin with.

Spider-Man 2 Trailer

I’m going to be honest here, I didn’t like the first Spider-Man but I’m hoping to love Spidey 2, but I’m just not sure about this trailer and the idea of this being a trilogy. I’m fairly positive that I can guess what the ending will be, but we’ll see. Here is the brand new spot that aired during the Super-Bowl.

In a World… Lake Bell Crashes Through The Glass Ceiling!

02

Lake Bell wrote, directed, produced and stars in In A World… – a very personal but completely accessible movie about a woman who faces the glass ceiling of the movie trailer narration biz while surviving as a vocal coach to actors like Eva Longoria. What makes her struggle more intense and funnier, is the fact that her father is the king of trailers.

Chad Michael Collins Talks Exclusively To Eclipse Magazine About His New Movie, Sniper: Reloaded

Chad Michael Collins_8

Sniper: Reloaded is available on DVD/Blu_ray from Sony Pictures as of 4/26/11

In 1993, Tom Berenger starred as a tough as nails U.S. Marine sniper Thomas Beckett, whose standing orders were to seek out rebels and remove them using his sniper skills. In 2011, Chad Michael Collins takes over the military position from Berenger as the franchise continues with the newest addition titled Sniper: Reloaded.

In Sniper:Reloaded, Chad Michael Collins plays Sgt. Brandon Beckett, a hotheaded infantry grunt and the estranged son of Berenger’s elite sniper Thomas Beckett. Brandon is military all the way, but determined not to follow in his father’s footsteps as a sniper even though circumstances seem to be pushing him in that direction.

Chad Michael Collins, who describes himself as an ‘accidental’ actor who has fully embraced “playing pretend for a living,” landed in LA to work in public relations.  After several years of doing celebrity PR, he was approached by a prominent manager/producer who convinced him to try out an acting class – his first ever.  Collins has a strong screen presence that lends itself well to playing soldiers and men of action, which has led him to be an actor with a diverse resume ranging from roles in horror movies Legion of the Dead and Lake Placid Three to numerous guest appearances on top rated television series including NCIS and CSI:NY. 

Eclipse Magazine recently caught up with Chad Michael Collins to talk to him about his starring role in the newly released to DVD movie, Sniper: Reloaded.

The Next Spider-Man/Peter Parker is….. Andrew Garfield!! Whaaaa? Who is this?

It’s official, Sony Pictures just sent over the press release announcing that Andrew Garfield is the next Peter Parker.  How do you go from Tobey Maguire to this guy? He looks too old for the part, since rumor has it’s going to be yet another origin story.  Who is this guy, you all ask? I have no clue. He was in The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus and he’s in several upcoming movies including something called The Social Network.  So I actually think it’s good that they went with an relative unknown for this, but he doesn’t look the part – maybe a post high school Spider-Man, then I could see it. I’m sure Sony is going to make a huge splash at Comic Con to roll this guy out. The full gushing press release is after the break.
