Congratulations Mel Gibson, you've made a slightly better Passchendaele.
99 Homes is essentially Wall Street for the era of the U.S. bailout and sub-prime mortgage collapse. An assured return to form for filmmaker Ramin Bahrani that benefits from a wealth of style and tension and a pair of exceptionally matched leading performances.

On this episode we review The Amazing Spider-Man 2 starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Jamie Foxx. We also take a look at Free Comic Book Day with Alice Quinn and Kris J Johnson of Bizarre Comics.
Whatever you thought of Marc Webb’s previous outing in the rebooting of the Spider-man Marvel Comics franchise is precisely what you’ll think of The Amazing Spider-man 2 with very little deviation.
Going through True Detective withdrawal? Good news! To help get you through this rough time, we’ve compiled a list of five miniseries to fill that empty spot in your heart with.
This week on DVD Pixar's Brave and the re-boot of The Amazing Spider-man both take aim for home entertainment superiority. We also take a look at the underrated holiday heartwarmer Arthur Christmas, the apocalyptic comedy Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, and two cheesy direct to DVD action films: one that has Bruce Willis and the other with Steve Austin and Steven Segal.
The Amazing Spider-Man still faithfully tells the origin story of Marvel Comics’ famed web-slinger for the first half, but a stellar cast raises the material past the bar set by Sam Raimi’s franchise and the second half wisely becomes its own movie from that point onward, even if the more original second half has more problems than the part haters will probably unjustly dismiss as redundant.
Fresh off his directorial debut, Marc Webb takes a crack at one of Marvel’s most popular characters. No simple feat. Webb has the burden of taking over from director Sam Raimi, whose first two Spider-Man films won critical praise and set impressive records in terms of numbers and total gross. However, this trailer looks spectacular and should wash the taste of Spider-Man 3 out of the mouths of any disappointed fans.
Although we've had an idea of what the Spider-Man film costume was going to look like for awhile now, we finally get an official picture of the ol' red-and-blue tights. Along with it comes the announcement of the film's title: it will be officially referred to as The Amazing Spider-Man in all future news posts.
In this (mostly) television-related episode Jeff and Will are joined by the Shelf's resident TV dorks Kathleen Corrigan and Ian MacIntyre, as well as TV critic Kat Angus of Dose.ca's excellent TV Casualty Podcast. The group discusses their favourite returning shows, shows they are looking forward to in 2011, the state of television in Canada, and even find time to challenge one another to ridiculously obscure TV trivia.
Big comic book movie news today, as we get our first look at Andrew Garfield (Never Let Me Go, The Social Network) in full Spider-Man getup.
The Social Network is a movie that shouldn’t work. It’s a story about a socially challenged, bitterly abrasive geek and how he created a high-traffic website. Hardly the stuff of Oscars or summer blockbusters. Thing is, in spite of this, the movie plays out just like the typical Facebook experience – hard to see what all the hype is about from the outside, quickly captivating at first, then totally engrossing from within.
