I’ve been avoiding the Spider-Man movies in theaters–very since the Andrew Garfield run–because Spider-Man belongs with Marvel Studios. If they’re not producing, I’m not interested. So a day or two ago I rented Venom mainly because I recall reviews saying how fun the movie was. And sure, I would watch Venom over receiving a root […]
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony’s movie division posted a $107 million profit, which is particularly impressive considering only two years earlier they posted a $719 million LOSS.

Then there’s the product placement (memo to studio: If you’re seeing obnoxious product placement in the damn trailer it’s likely to be even more so in the movie, […]
Gareth Evans’ The Raid: Redemption is spoken of particularly highly by people who appreciate martial arts movies, and there’s something to be said for the fight choreography, which is particularly remarkable at times, Though the problem is the movie doesn’t bring too much else to the table beyond the aforementioned fighting.
