The Evil Dead Easter Egg You May Not Have Noticed In Sam Raimi's Spider-Man

Comic book movies are always full of Easter eggs, especially Marvel movies. Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" films are no exception. You'll find decades of superhero history scattered throughout, with subtle nods to several comic book heroes and villains. There's even a reference to their old rivals DC as Peter Parker shouts out classic superhero catchphrases while perfecting his web-slinging. "Shazam," anyone?But for "Evil Dead" fans like me, there are some even groovier Easter eggs to be found.Aside f...

Alfred Molina Was A Little Too Attached To His Doc Ock Tentacles

Alfred Molina has been the talk of the town lately, thanks to his return as Doc Ock, one of Spider-Man's most formidable foes on the silver screen in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 2,"  arguably the greatest superhero film ever made. Dr. Otto Octavius and his villainous alter ego, Doctor Octopus, has long been one of the web-slinger's most prominent adversaries, and he became even more menacing in "Spider-Man: No Way Home." But like many Spider-Man villains, Molina imbued the comic book villain with su...

Spider-Man: No Way Home Is Officially The Fourth Highest Grossing Movie Of All Time

Spider-Man, Spider-Man! Does whatever a Spider-Man film can! Forgive my lame attempt at humor in song form, but this is pretty big news. "Spider-Man: No Way Home" is now officially the fourth-highest-grossing film of all time, not adjusted for inflation, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film of many Spider-Men (Spiders-Men? Spiders-Man? Doesn't matter. Peter is good at science, not grammar) passed the holiday weekend with a whopping $702.7 million in ticket sales, which means that it has...

Andrew Garfield Even Lied To Emma Stone About Being In Spider-Man: No Way Home

You know, if you think about it, Andrew Garfield's arduous task in keeping his appearance in "Spider-Man: No Way Home" a complete and total secret from the general public pretty much mirrors Peter Parker's crushing burden in doing the same for his own secret identity as the wall-crawling superhero. In yet another instance of fact following fiction, the internet at large more or less treated Garfield and Tobey Maguire's inclusion in "No Way Home" as a fait accompli, thanks to a combination of sus...

Hannah Shaw-Williams' Top 10 Movies Of 2021

2021: what a year! What a weird, bad, liminal space nightmare of a year. It was groaning under the weight of all the movies that had been pushed back from their 2020 release dates, but the ups and downs of the pandemic flattened the flood of new films. After holding out for a theatrical release, many ended up relegated to either a day-and-date streaming release or no theatrical release at all. Nothing about was certain. In the space of a week I went from cheerfully sitting through three showings...

The 20 Best Michael Keaton Movies, Ranked

Perhaps best known as the Caped Crusader of Tim Burton's "Batman" films, Michael Keaton has had a wide-ranging and thriving career. Keaton started off in comedy, training at the legendary Second City, before working on iconic television series such as "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" and "Maude." Keaton finally entered the big screen in "Night Shift" with a crackling, frenetic energy that would launch a successful film comedy career before Burton took the risk of casting him as Batman, a role that ...

Ethan Anderton's Top 10 Movies Of 2021

The year 2021 was one of the worst of my adult life. On top of all the fresh hell that the world offered very single day, from insurrection to a pandemic that got worse (again), my incredible dad died unexpectedly at the end of January, and the entire year was filled with my family recovering in the aftermath. But others have had it far worse, and I've been fortunate enough to have at least some reprieve from the passing of 24 frames per second. Films, movies, cinema, whatever you want to call i...

How Seabiscuit Almost Cost Tobey Maguire His Spot As Spider-Man

In the spring of 2002, Tobey Maguire became one of Hollywood's biggest stars after taking on the lead role in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man." A rousing box office and critical triumph, "Spider-Man" ushered in a new wave of superhero films, setting the stage for the Marvel Cinematic Universe's reign. This success meant there would inevitably be a sequel, and plans for "Spider-Man 2" were quickly underway. In-between the "Spider-Man" films, Maguire had signed on to the biographical drama "Seabiscuit" fr...

The Spider-Man: No Way Home Bridge Fight Was Originally Absurdly Long

The film is still playing, but now that it's been out for a while, we're getting some of the details behind the making of the film that has been kept as much under wraps as it could be in the age of social media. One fun fact is that the bridge scene where Peter Parker (Tom Holland) as Spider-Man takes on Doc Ock (Alfred Molina) was originally a whole lot ...

Apparently, Andrew Garfield Was Not Hot Enough To Hang Out With Talking Lion

Andrew Garfield just reported a crime. Apparently in the year 2008, when chaos clearly reigned supreme, the then 25-year-old actor was denied the titular role in "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" because — and this may sound insane — he wasn't "handsome enough." Believe it or not, someone looked at a headshot of this future heartthrob and against all odds decided he wasn't hot enough to share the screen with a talking lion or sword-wielding mice. Garfield recently told this tragic tale ...

Here's When You Can Watch Spider-Man: No Way Home At Home

"Spider-Man: No Way Home" not only finished 2021 as the year's biggest movie (by a hilariously wide margin) but it now ranks as one of the highest-grossing movies in history, becoming the sort of pop culture event that some of us thought we'd never see again. But there are those who are still waiting patiently to watch the movie from the comfort of home, be it for the first time or just to soak in the superhero goodness on repeat. In either case, the good news is that we finally know when the di...

Manhattan Apartments That Peter Parker Could Actually Afford To Rent

Warning: Spoilers ahead for "Spider-Man: No Way Home."At the end of "Spider-Man: No Way Home," young Peter Parker needs to get his own apartment in Manhattan, and though the apartment shown on screen isn't the height of luxury, it's still pretty darn nice for his budget and location! Which got us thinking ... what kind of apartment could Peter Parker actually afford in Manhattan these days? New York City has notoriously high rent rates that have only gotten less affordable since Sam Raimi's "Spi...

Why Has Tom Holland's Spider-Man Never Been The Star Of His Own Movie?

As "Spider-Man: No Way Home" continues its theatrical rollout worldwide, more audiences are getting to experience the movie, which is really the eighth leg in the live-action Spider-Man film series, as opposed to just a continuation of Tom Holland's Spidey adventures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In "No Way Home," Holland, as Peter Parker, has to deal with a sudden influx of "multiversal trespassers," supervillains from Sony movies past who are now encroaching on his MCU territory. In a way,...

Andrew Garfield Was Sold On No Way Home Because Of One Key Moment

The presence of several Spider-Men in "Spider-Man: No Way Home" was one of the coolest things about the film. It was handled beautifully, and considering the audience response, you thought so as well. It was wonderful to not only see Tom Holland reprise his role in the MCU but to revisit Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's versions of our friendly, neighborhood superhero was a treat. Garfield recently did an interview with Variety where he was asked about other actors returning and what he would...

How Tom Holland's Failed James Bond Pitch Led To His Role In Uncharted

The "Uncharted" movie has changed dramatically since it was first announced what feels like a lifetime ago. (In reality, it was in 2008, so same difference.) Early on, David O. Russell was set to direct the movie, with Mark Wahlberg starring as Nathan Drake in a re-imagining of the "Uncharted" video games that supposedly would've featured a dysfunctional family at its core, like so many of Russell's other films. Numerous director changes and script rewrites later, the final version is now a Nath...

Spider-Man: No Way Home Behind-The-Scenes Look Puts Spotlight On Amazing Stunt Work

Few studios -- if any -- can hope to match the level of output that Marvel Studios puts out during any given year. Ever since the debut of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2008 with "Iron Man" (and "The Incredible Hulk" only a few months later, though you'd be forgiven for wiping that out of your memory banks), audiences have grown accustomed to expecting at least two new movies within the span of 12 months, like clockwork. That number has doubled in the years since, with Phase 4 commencing with...

The Marvel Media Of 2021, Ranked

2021 will go down in history as Marvel's busiest year ever, for better or worse. Following an unplanned hiatus in response to an unprecedented pandemic, Marvel Studios hit the ground running two weeks into the year and rarely slowed down in its 50-week jog, dominating the Disney+ streaming service and convincing American audiences to brave movie theaters in a time where large gatherings in small spaces was considered a deadly combination. Meanwhile, other productions not directly affiliated with...

The 15 Best Characters In The Matrix Resurrections Ranked

During the first act of "The Matrix Resurrections," a mass of tech industry wannabes debate what "The Matrix" is. One claims that it's "mind porn." Another calls it "crypto fascism." Eventually, the group settles on the movie's most famous visual, the one that eventually became commodified to the point that it lost almost all of its impact: bullet time. It's a breathlessly cynical scene that ignores some fundamental truths about the franchise, one of which is that "The Matrix" was always about t...

Somehow, against all odds, the script mostly kept its focus squarely on Tom Holland's Peter Parker and his toughest, most challenging adventure in the MCU yet. The fact that so many minute ...
