There have been six feature films based on the Marvel's Spider-Man since the film franchise launched in 2002. That doesn't count Tom Holland's portrayal of the web-slinging hero in "Captain America: Civil War" and "Avengers: Infinity War."
The animated feature "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" looks at what happens when a variety of Spider-people come together. At the heart of the eclectic group are the versions voiced by Shameik Moore and Jake Johnson (Miles Morales and Spider-Man).
Mules are stubborn. Producer, director and star Clint Eastwood no doubt relished the double meaning in the title of his latest film, "The Mule." The heavily fictionalized drug courier Eastwood plays here wants no part of today's world of snowflakes and sensitivities and multiracial realities. Nor does Eastwood's character want anything to do with post-1975 technology; he complains constantly about cellphones, when he's not calling out Mexicans as "beaners," or African-Americans as "you Negro folks." It worked for "Gran Torino." Who knows, maybe it'll get by here.
The post-apocalyptic young adult fantasy flick "Mortal Engines" rolls into and out of one's consciousness like "traction cities" that roam its landscape. There are so many aviation goggles and large gears grinding that it's basically "Steampunk: The Movie." It starts out at a very high level of steampunk, then manages to go up even from there. We've got "old tech" and waistcoats a-plenty, hot air balloon cities galore. Bowler-hatted royal guards? We've got 20. But who cares, no big deal, there's a whole lot more...
It is not a political statement to say that these are strange and troubled times. Some days can feel like a week and some weeks can feel like a year. It's no surprise that so many movies seemed invested in the emotional toll and practical reality of just making it through, getting from one day to the next.
In movie business parlance, a four-quadrant film is one that appeals to each of a potential audience's four demographic groups: men and women, those over and those under 25 years of age. A film that succeeds with all four quadrants – think "Star Wars," "Toy Story," "Lord of the Rings" – is doing very well indeed.
A Los Angeles federal grand jury has indicted five men who allegedly ran a piracy ring that offered hundreds of stolen movies and TV shows online, including "Fifty Shades of Grey," "Godzilla" and "The Walking Dead.".
