Movie Review – The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 2014.

Directed by Marc Webb.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, B.J. Novak, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Denis Leary.

Synopsis:

Peter Parker runs the gauntlet as the mysterious company Oscorp sends up a slew of supervillains against him, impacting on his life.

There is a common misconception that I feel I need to deal with. In 2007 Spider-Man 3 turned out to be quite the travesty. The main issue leveled at it was that it had too many villains. That was never the case, how ever many people said it. It was also a bloody lazy thing to say. The characters were utterly mishandled. Long established story elements were messed around with, and the one villain that everyone wanted to see was completely miscast. Emo Parker however, cannot be explained. That was just terrible. »

16 Moments That Prove Mrs. Doubtfire Will Always Be Hilarious

18 April 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

A Mrs. Doubtfire sequel is in the works, but before we get all hot and bothered about that, let's take a minute to review what we love about the 1993 classic. It doesn't matter if you're 5 or 50; Robin Williams is hilarious as Daniel, a down-on-his-luck dad hoping to hold onto partial custody of his kids when his wife (Sally Field) decides to separate. In a stroke of genius, he enlists his brother to construct custom prosthetics to make him look like a nanny, and Mrs. Doubtfire is born. The family has grown up a lot since the movie was released, but we'll always remember them as the Hillards. Take a look at the timeless moments we'll never forget. View Slideshow › »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 review: black and white and web all over

18 April 2014 3:08 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Suffers badly by comparison with the cogent, witty Avengers flicks. This feels like a campy Saturday-morning cartoon left over from the 1970s. I’m “biast” (pro): like the cast

I’m “biast” (con): wasn’t a huge fan of the first one; the trailer looked generic

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Two years on from the first pointless reboot of the Spider-Man story — a mere five years after the previous version had wrapped up — the pointless sequel has arrived. Except now we’ve had two more years of cogent, witty Avengers flicks, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 suffers badly by comparison. This looks like a throwback to a time when comic book movies were kiddie stuff and nothing else. This feels like a campy Saturday-morning cartoon left over from the 1970s, and not the smart, relevant science-fiction action drama the genre has matured into on the big screen. »

Second Opinion – The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

17 April 2014 2:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 2014.

Directed by Marc Webb.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, B.J. Novak, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Denis Leary.

Synopsis:

Peter Parker runs the gauntlet as the mysterious company Oscorp sends up a slew of supervillains against him, impacting on his life.

Dear reader, there’s two things I’d like to divulge here. 1) This contains some spoilers. Boo hoo. And 2) My writing style is not usual filled with so many open questions and Screaming Caps Lock but this film brought out the worst in me. I blame Marc Webb.

The sequel nobody wanted to the reboot nobody wanted. A script from the creative minds behind such beloved classics as Transformers, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, The Island, and Star Trek Into Darkness. The return of a director who demonstrated he is incapable »

Peter Parker by day, Spider-Man by night…Spidey, also known as The Amazing Spider-Man, is one of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and The Amazing Spider-man 2 from Columbia Pictures opens May 2.

Can you draw Spider-Man?

Do you live in the St. Louis area and want to see The Amazing Spider-man 2 at an advance screening?

'Mrs. Doubtfire' Star Mara Wilson Disowns the Sequel

17 April 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There has been a nostalgia boom in movie news lately, with the latest story to grab hearts across America being the announced sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire. The 1993 comedy featured divorcee Robin Williams dressing up in drag as an old lady pretending to be his children's new nanny. Many were delighted that Williams would be returning alongside original director Chris Columbus for Mrs. Doubtfire 2. One person who isn't happy about the news? Original star Mara Wilson, who thinks the movie will probably suck. And she's probably right.

Mara played one of the three Hillard children, youngest daughter of recently divorced parents Daniel and Miranda (Robin Williams, Sally Field). The actress claims that she has nothing to do with this new take on the classic comedy, nor will she be associated with it at all, disowning the impending sequel. In a twitter blast, she also goes onto express her feelings towards sequels in general, »

A 'Mrs. Doubtfire' Sequel Is Finally Happening

17 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Mrs. Doubtfire," the smash comedy that saw Robin Williams dressing up like an Scottish housekeeper so that he could spend more time with his estranged kids, might be more than 20 years old, but there are some at Fox who still think that a sequel is something of a priority. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Williams and original director Chris Columbus are looking to reunite for a follow-up, to be penned by "Elf" writer David Berenbaum. Get ready for more drive-by fruitings, everyone!

According to the Hollywood Reporter, development on a sequel began in 2001 (seriously? Not 1995?), with Bonnie Hunt being hired to write a screenplay. Her screenplay, and many others, were ultimately rejected, in a costly development process that yielded no results. When Berenbaum became attached earlier this year, it was with an idea that was finally strong enough for both Columbus and Williams to get behind. While it's far from a sure thing, »

Mrs. Doubtfire Sequel in the Works—All the Details!

17 April 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Mrs. Doubtfire is coming back, dears! Fox 2000 is developing a sequel to the 1993 comedy that will reunite Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus, per the Hollywood Reporter. In the original Mrs. Doubtfire, Williams plays a father of three who goes undercover as a Scottish nanny. Estranged wife (Sally Field) decides she wants a divorce and won't allow her estranged husband to spend time with the kids. But, the Mrs. Doubtfire facade fools her and the entire family (at first, anyway), allowing incognito dad to spend the time he wants with his family. It's unclear whether Williams will be busting out the glasses, wig, floral dress and pearls again, or what exactly the plot line of the sequel will »

Mara Wilson has 'no interest' in 'Mrs. Doubtfire' sequel

17 April 2014 6:39 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The just-announced Mrs. Doubtfire sequel won’t feature a full cast reunion. Mara Wilson, who played Robin Williams and Sally Field’s young daughter Natalie Hillard, has announced she has no desire to return for a second movie.

“I’ve been in some mediocre movies, but I’ve never been in a sequel. And I have no interest in being in one now,” the actress and writer wrote on Twitter. “Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end.”

‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Sequel In The Works

17 April 2014 2:17 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The 1993 family comedy Mrs. Doubtfire is finally getting a sequel. Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus are both attached to return, with David Berenbaum (Elf) onboard as the scribe.

The original film was based on Anne Fine’s 1987 novel, Madame Doubtfire, and also stars Sally Field and Pierce Brosnan. The film followed the misadventures of an unemployed actor, Daniel Hillard, who, following his divorce, disguises himself as an elderly female nanny, allowing him to secretly masquerade his way back into the lives of his children.

This sequel has been in the works for quite some time. Back in 2001, Bonnie Hunt was hired to write the script. But there’s been no success. Perhaps this time things will work out. How do you feel about this sequel?

Fox Developing ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Sequel with Robin Williams

16 April 2014 7:50 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

After a star turning role in Dead Poet’s Society in 1989, Robin Williams had a quick succession of popular, hit comedies: Hook, Aladdin, Jumanji, The Birdcage, and so on. But it was his role as divorced actor Daniel Hillard – not to mention Daniel’s alter ego, Euphegenia Doubtfire – in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) that brought Williams both popular acclaim and a Golden Globe for Best Actor.

In that film, Daniel lost a custody battle for his children with his ex-wife (Sally Field). While he was allowed to visit with his kids once a week, Daniel also chose to cross-dress as an elderly woman and become the children’s nanny in order to be around them as much as possible. It’s one of ...

Robin Williams Is Returning for 'Mrs. Doubtfire' Sequel

16 April 2014 7:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fox 2000 is developing a sequel to the 1993 comedy hit Mrs. Doubtfire, with star Robin Williams and Chris Columbus attached to star and direct.

David Berenbaum (Elf) has signed on to write the screenplay, although no story details were revealed. This sequel has actually been in development since 2001, when actress/writer Bonnie Hunt signed on to write the script, but the project went through several rewrites and began to languish in development. The sequel has been inactive for years, mainly because both Robin Williams and Chris Columbus weren't interested in any of the rewrites, but they both sparked to David Berenbaum's story earlier this year and are currently attached.

Elizabeth Gabler and Marisa Gabler are overseeing the sequel for Fox 2000. The original Mrs. Doubtfire, which earned nearly $220 million during its domestic theatrical run more than 20 years ago, centered on a struggling actor and divorced father (Robin Williams) who tries to »

Mrs Doubtfire Sequel Heats Up Again

16 April 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It’s been so long since the idea of a sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire hit the news radar that we were beginning to think it would end up going the reboot route before any official follow-up happened. But Fox 2000 is not letting Euphegenia Doubtfire die peacefully, and is making a new attempt to convince director Christopher Columbus and star Robin Williams to re-visit the character.You’re probably aware that the 1993 film saw Williams as struggling actor Daniel Hillard, who was desperate to maintain a relationship with his children following the recent divorce from his wife Miranda (Sally Field). In order to stay close, he concocts the elderly Scottish housekeeper character and applies to be their carer with predictably disastrous results. The movie was a hit at the box office, and all involved thought a sequel might happen, but no one could find an idea they liked.Bonnie Hunt was »

Cue Aerosmith’s “Dude Looks Like a Lady” on your tape deck: Fox 2000 Pictures is developing a sequel to the 1993 comedy Mrs. Doubtfire.

Elf writer David Berenbaum is attached to pen the script.
