Things We Saw Today: Madame De Ackbar Can’t Repel Decorum Of This Magnitude

My good sirs, I do believe this appears to be a trap.

Emma Stone for Mary Jane!

I know a lot of you won't agree with HISHE's take on Gwen's death, but the rest of this episode—written with the help of HISHE's fans, because it takes a village to get over the travesty that is this film—is pretty spot-on.

Set web shooters to "love me."

Donald Glover may be playing Miles Morales in an upcoming episode of Disney XD's Ultimate Spider-Man (finally), but it's not the first time he's put in an appearance in the Spidey-franchise... kinda.

Summer Box-Office Problems Likely Stem From Lack of Content for Women, Surprising No One

Except maybe the movie execs who keep making these decisions.

According to data from the Motion Picture Association of America, the young male demographic that most big Hollywood movies are aimed at is making fewer trips to the theater and hurting box-office totals. Who is spending money at the movies? Women, and movies aimed at women are reaping the benefits. So, you know, any time you want to get on that Black Widow movie, Marvel...

This Ginger Kid Accurately Expresses Our Feels About Gwen Stacy In Amazing Spider-Man 2

He just can't, and neither can we.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had (many) flaws, but I think the ending of the film was perfectly tragic. Obviously this child agrees, because he is having none of it. Watch him freak out over how much he just can't with ASM2 and prepare to strongly identify.

Review

Another weekend, another comic book movie. This time it's Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 which brings back Andrew Garfield as the friendly neighborhood web-slinging superhero. The Spidey parts of the movie are fantastic, but the rest of it? Well, read my spoiler-free thoughts:

Today in Awesome

Label activities like sewing and needlework as inherently "feminine"? Not on Emma Stone's watch! Even if you're dating her, she will take you down. I'm not entirely satisfied with Andrew Garfield's response, but I like to think he's learned a thing this day.
