Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For The Amazing Spider-Man 2 In Sacramento

Win Tickets To An Advance For The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on 4/30/2014 at 7:00PM in Sacramento at Esquire IMAX Theatre.


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.

Advance Preview: Dark Horse's Star Wars Rebel Heist

The newest Star Wars release arrives looking great. Read on to learn more. 

Story By: Dave Beusing

Matt Kindt has taken on an obscene number of comic book assignments over the past year. Ever since he became the author de jour following the critical success of Mind MGMT (one of the best comics on the stands for 2+ years now), his name has been all over the comic book market.

From DC’s Villains Month (he wrote Solomon Grundy, Deadshot, & Harley Quinn) to Marvel Knights: Spider-Man (really great Spidey mini-series; like Arkham Asylum meets the Webhead) to Valiant Comics Unity (think: their Avengers), Kindt has been working his ass off.

All of this is to say, there’s a moment of hesitation, a tentative fear that his new 4 issue miniseries, Star Wars: Rebel Heist from Dark Horse, will sag under the weight of his impressive workload.

Fortunately, it’s only a moment of hesitation. And then you take a look at that Kindt-painted cover of Han Solo and a blue alien girl Kirk may have left …

TV Recap: Vikings "The Choice" By: Sue

TV Recap: Vikings "The Choice" By: Sue
Athelstan reads over the scrolls of Caesar’s battle as King Ecbert listens. Caesar was always thinking, always using the terrain. At the critical moment, Caesar strode to the front of the line, and addressed each of the men by name. King Ecbert sees that he has no choice but to kill Ragnar and all his men. Athelstan cannot believe that Ragnar did not want to speak peacefully, knowing that Ragnar is looking for fertile lands for his people to farm. He asks that King Ecbert send him to negotiate, but King Ecbert feels he is far too valuable, and would be slaughtered. Instead, he will wait for his allies to arrive, and then kill the Vikings.



Ragnar points out that King Horik’s actions make it very difficult to negotiate with King Ecbert. King Horik never intended to negotiate. Lagertha hopes that if they were to win against King Ecbert they would prosper with not only more gold and silver, but also more land. Ragnar points out that King Ecb…

TV Review: Hannibal “Shiizakana” By: Brandon Wolfe

TV Review: Hannibal “Shiizakana” By: Brandon Wolfe
The battle of wills between Will and Hannibal is creating one of the more unique character dynamics presently on television. Here are two adversaries constantly circling each other, yet with each too fascinated by the other to strike. Hannibal’s preoccupation with Will has been a linchpin of the series from the start, and it’s not surprising that he continues to view his patient as a chemistry set in human form, a test subject to study the volatility of in reaction to whichever elements he chooses to introduce. But Will’s reaction to Hannibal is truly intriguing. He loathes the man, wants him dead, yet can’t stop himself from showing up at the doctor’s office for regular appointments where he can prod the man for any insight he can glean about his actions. The need each man possesses to understand what drives the other is not like any other TV relationship I can think of. It’s like if Batman took to hanging out with the Joker all the t…

Railway Man Review: Oddly Placed Drama Won't See Much Love

The Colin Firth/Nicole Kidman PTSD drama Railway Man fails to build desperately needed momentum. 


Review by: Matt Cummings 

With America once again exiting the stage of war, we've had a chance to see our men and women of the armed service grapple with the manacle that is PTSD. At the end of WWII, men returned as different people, fundamentally altered by their experiences but content to bear that burden alone. And while the drama Railway Man attempts to portray these struggles in a forgive/forget piece, the lack of momentum is painful to deal with.



British Army veteran As Eric Lomax (Colin Firth) is a shy, stoggy sort with an enduring passion for railroads. His knowledge of English railway timelines makes him at first seem like a lonely social misfit trivia, until a chance meeting with Patti (Nicole Kidman) aboard a train in 1980 convinces him to make friends. In a blink, the couple is married, enjoying a mid-life romance that soon turns dark, as Lomax begins to retreat into de…

Shatner's World Review: Iconic Captain Takes Show On The Road

The one-man-show Shatner's World is enjoyable, so long as you're a fan.

Review by: Matt Cummings
The career of SJF favorite William Shatner is a study in effective self-promotion. Working his way from the Canadian theater scene to the unflappable Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek, to wacko Denny Crane in Boston Legal, Shatner has made his fame one success (and failure) at a time. The one-man-show Shatner's World is more a retrospective celebration of the man than a release of new content, a fact which will entertain based entirely on your opinion of his career.


Shot in his native Ontario, Canada, Shatner moves around the stage with frenetic energy, that of a man 20 years his youth. His 'co-star' - an office chair - becomes an important vehicle as he tells about living in a trailer shell after Star Trek's cancellation, or his drive from Canada to Detroit to transport a rabbi, or his hilarious battle with a rat during a ski trip. Granted, we've heard some…

THE OTHER WOMAN Review. Takes Male Bashing To A Whole New Level

THE OTHER WOMAN Review By: Sue
The Other Woman takes male bashing to a whole new level, okay for a Girls Night Out.
From the director that made everyone sob like little girls with The Notebook, Nick Cassavetes, comes The Other Woman which is the exact opposite of that heartfelt love story. Instead of everlasting love comes a comedy of revenge and friendship, which starts out slow, and never really finds its feet as it stumbles along with slapstick gags and humorless dialogue.



After years of dating all the wrong guys, Carly (Cameron Diaz) thinks she may have found a winner in Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), or at least one good enough to ditch the rest of her beaus and become a one man woman, but Mark proves to worse than the men before him.

Opening up with a very Notebook lovey dovey rom-com montage, it is quickly dissolved when Mark goes to bed with Carly but wakes up next to his wife, Kate (Leslie Mann). Where Carly was smart and sexy, Kate seems to be the opposite. She’s ditzy, and ab…

Death Of Wolverine Cover Reveled

It’s been almost 40 years since Wolverine’s first appearance on the very last page of The Incredible Hulk #180. In comic book time, of course, Wolverine is much older: Over a hundred years old, a century-plus lifespan that has seen the man called Logan become a soldier, a samurai, a superhero, an X-Man, an Avenger, the amnesiac victim of horrific scientific experiments, a renegade, a teacher.

This September, that’s going to end.


Marvel has been teasing a radical new development in Wolverine’s history with this summer’s story arc, “3 Months to Die,” which robs Wolverine of his healing factor, the mutant power that has kept him alive and kicking through decades of fatal injuries. Now, EW is excited to announce exclusively that “3 Months to Die” will culminate in a 4-part miniseries in September called, simply, Death of Wolverine. Written by Charles Soule and drawn by Steve McNiven, Death of Wolverine #1 hits on September 3 (that’s the cover image above.) The next three issues of the ser…
