Spider-Man in Review: Maguire vs. Garfield
Tom Holland’s debut in Captain America: Civil War has been met with great fanfare; he seems to combine the charisma of the backflipping, wisecracking Spider-Man with the new-kid-on-the-block, quietly nerdy persona of Peter Parker. Tobey Maguire even praised him on Twitter. But since we’ve seen less than a half an hour of Spidey-Tom in action, we can’t throw him into the ring with actors who’ve done the role for multiple movies - yet.

Paranormal investigation shows have been around for a while now. Initially presumed to be something of a fad and heavily expected to quickly drop in popularity, that hasn’t proven to be the case.

Defining the Western
After much movie-watching, researching about film, and a thought-provoking conversation or two, I ask myself: is "The Western" a genre of a film, or just the setting of one? How do you define it? If John Wayne isn't the star, is it even a Western? Do people still even make western films?

The 10 Most Tortured Comic Book Characters

Here was a big time gangster—the epitome of toughness and criminally cultured masculinity—airing out his dirty laundry, childhood fears, and insecurities to a shrink. Talk about shifting societal norms. HBO’s The Sopranos changed the landscape for Hollywood tough guys.

James Gandolfini pioneered Tony Soprano into a figure which allowed many to think: “Going to a therapist is no shame.”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows in 2016, offered fans things they’d always wanted to see on film, but weren’t technically capable of making the transition previously.
