The Amazing Spider-Man

Spins a web, familiar size.


Action

Rod Lott
I still don’t know why Hollywood felt that Spider-Man, all of 10 years young, needed to be remade — I suspect it has to do with selling toys. Enough of calling The Amazing Spider-Man a “reboot,” too; this is a remake through and through.

With Great Power ...: The Stan Lee Story

A not-quite-Marvelous look at a pop-culture giant.


Documentary

Rod Lott
There's a great story surrounding Stan Lee and Marvel Comics. I know because a month ago, I read all about it in Sean Howe’s new book about the very topic. As for the documentary With Great Power  ...: The Stan Lee Story, however, it's perfectly fine if the only portrait you care to see is superficial, self-laudatory and largely wart-free.

Dollar for the Dead

Once upon a time on TNT.


Western

Rod Lott
Perhaps to horn in on the expected Django Unchained action, Warner Archive has dug into its vaults to give a spaghetti Western a second helping of viewers. It found a unlikely offering in Dollar for the Dead, a 1988, made-for-cable effort starring Emilio Estevez. You could look at it like a Young Guns spin-off if you wish.

T.I. — Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Atlanta rapper T.I. has released Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, his eighth studio album and the first since his most recent stint in prison. The title is no doubt a reference to his legal troubles on federal weapons charges, but it also makes reference to the Marvin Gaye song of the same name, which is sampled in the album’s opening track.

Searching for Sugar Man

A true story that's truly sweet.


Documentary

Phil Bacharach
This is a golden age of documentaries, and I don’t mean the propagandistic variety via Michael Moore or 2016: Obama’s America. Given the pervasive timidity and lack of imagination in Hollywood today, film buffs are well advised to take stock of documentaries, where the most gripping stories are being told.

Iron Man 3

This metal is still precious.


Action

Rod Lott
You’ll hear the phrase “hot mess” bandied about the whole of Iron Man 3. For a while — the entire first act, really — the film embodies it, minus the hot.
