Do you think you need to watch a Spider-Man reboot? Is it even necessary? Only five years have passed since the end of Sam Raimi'sSpider-Man movie trilogy and yet the Marvel superhero's story starts all over again on the big screen-- this time lanky British actor Andrew Garfield (The Social NetworkNever Let Me Go) replacing Tobey Maguire as the webslinger.

In The Amazing Spider-Man, we are told an already familiar story: how Spider-Man came to be...only this time, we are provided with more details. Seventeen-year-old social outcast Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), orphaned at such a young age, grew up with his uncle (Martin Sheen) and aunt (Sally Field) in a quiet suburban neighborhood...but his past is kept a secret from him. One day, Peter...(READ FULL REVIEW)
 
 
Maybe you love musical films and you've seen every one of them that has ever been made. Maybe you're a fan of 80's music and you wanna reminisce. Maybe Tom Cruise playing a rock star is a compellingly curious thing. Whatever your reason is, Rock of Ages, based on the 2006 Broadway jukebox musical of the same name, is on your must-see list. 

So, what to expect?

Essentially, the movie is about young love in the midst of a Rock 'n' Roll Era-- but sidetracked by many subplots. With a central story similar to 2010's Burlesque (Christina Aguilera), Rock of Ages is about Sherrie (Julianne Hough), a small-town girl and aspiring singer who...(READ FULL REVIEW)

 
 
The most highly anticipated Ridley-Scott-comeback sci-fi summer blockbuster movie of the 21st century, Prometheus feels like The X-Files meets Alien meets The Tree of Life meets Ebola meets The Abyss. 

In the distant future, in the Isle of Skye in Scotland, after unearthing another cave painting illustrating the same star map discovered in other ancient civilizations, archaeologists sweethearts Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and  Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) feel that they are now only a step closer to the answers to their existential questions. Who created mankind? Are we engineered by a more superior life form? Why was mankind created? So, then the couple hops on the spaceship Prometheus, along with a crew that includes a very soulful robot David (Michael Fassbender) and a robot-like woman (Charlize Theron) on a Weyland-funded mission to find answers in space. But, of course, they will encounter monsters first. And...(READ FULL REVIEW)

 
 
Both fans and non-fans of the Madagascar franchise will be absolutely taken by surprise by the third installment: Europe's Most Wanted, this time helmed by three directors, Eric Darnell,Tom McGrath, and Conrad Vernon,  and leveled-up in 3D.

Left stranded by their conniving penguin friends in the wilderness of Africa, the gang of Alex the Lion (Ben Stiller), Marty the Zebra (Chris Rock), Melman the Giraffe (David Schwimmer), and Gloria the Hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith), are suffering from increasing bouts of homesickness for their Central Park Zoo. Determined to go back home to New York, they decide to flee Africa and catch up first with the penguins in Monte Carlo-- where they unfortunately caught the attention of a psychotic and highly skilled French animal control officer, the hilariously obsessive Captain Chantel DuBois (a riotous cross between Edith Piaf and Cruella De Vil), voiced by Frances McDormand, who would stop at nothing to catch the animal friends. The gang, the penguins, along with King Julian XIII (Sacha Baron Cohen; Borat) and the lemurs, join a traveling circus initially to hide from DuBois, but then it eventually becomes a scheme to get to New York. And thus begins the gang's European invasion, traveling from one country to another, yearning for the Big Apple. But as they are getting to know more about their new-found circus friends (voiced by Jessica Chastain, Martin Short, and...(READ FULL REVIEW)
