This week on the show it’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Or perhaps we should call it The (Allegedly) Amazing Spider-Man 2. Well, all of us except Kevin will call it that. Also, in Blake’s absence, we welcome a new guest Allison Sommers Kelly from the podcast Verbal Justice (iTunes). Or Gerbil Justice. The Skype connection […]

For the “spoiler-ific” review, click here. A couple of years ago, a swiftly constructed reboot to the Spider-Man movie franchise came into fruition brought up angst in the idea of repeating an origin story that is still fresh in the minds of movie viewers.  In my review of The Amazing Spider-Man, I had made mention […]

Movie Review: ‘Gangster Squad’ Starring Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn

Posted: January 11, 2013 at 7:59 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Zombieland was one of my favorite movies from 2009. It was fresh, fun, and didn’t take itself too seriously. Director Ruben Fleischer wasn’t trying to be 28 Days Later, or Dawn of the Dead, but rather created his own style – the result of which was a clever and extremely entertaining film. With his latest […]

Steve Kelley Reviews ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans

Posted: July 3, 2012 at 6:47 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Note: an earlier version incorrectly listed Gwen Stacy as Gwen Tracy. Special thanks to Russ M. for the correction. With the seemingly annual (sometimes biannual) releases of Marvel films, there’s little doubt that superhero movies are in style. This year’s release of The Avengers skyrocketed into the record books and became the third-highest grossing film of […]

Movie Review: ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ From The Perspective of a Fanboy

Posted: July 3, 2012 at 3:30 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

For as long as I can remember, Spider-Man has been one of the superheroes I had always come to love. It wasn’t just the enhanced reflexes, spider sense, increased strength and agility that always drew me in (perhaps as a kid, yes), but rather it was Peter Parker’s everyday problems that work in tandem with […]
