You might not immediately associate this year's remake of the 1987 hit, ROBOCOP, with Fatherhood - but in a weird way, it's a movie with emotional elements completely tied to being a Dad. While I'll go into that in more detail in my formal review, what I can tell you is that Joel Kinnaman does a fine job of portraying a Father that's dealing with some extraordinary circumstances... but this is ROBOCOP, and it's also a fine action film that movie-minded Dads will dig. With that, my friends at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and I have teamed-up to bring you a giveaway for Rock Father's Day 2014. One of you will score the just-released Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD combo pack!

I've always had a thing for licensed die-cast when they're done well, and the folks at Mattel are usually right there with some cool models based on hot trends. While MATCHBOX gets some on occasion (some BATMAN and DISNEY vehicles they've done come to mind), HOT WHEELS are always at the front of the pack. This week, a new assortment started hitting the streets as a Walmart Exclusive - The Hot Wheels Spider-Man Series - done in timing with the release of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2.

This weekend, Marc Webb's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 enters it's second weekend at the box office, hopefully swinging into another successful weekend for Columbia Pictures and the latest adventure for Peter Parker and Co.

In it, viewers can take a look inside WETA WORKSHOP for some inside details on crafting Dane DeHaan's Green Goblin gear. Take a look...

On May 2, Columbia Pictures will release THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, and today the final trailer has arrived. My thoughts? The original Spider-man film series with Tobey Maguire was massive (remember how big the opening weekend for the first was?), but they haven't aged well at all... to the point where I don't even want to see them again. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN reinvented that world (some would say "too soon"), and this trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2? This just might be the Spider-man movie that we've all been waiting for. It looks badass. Talke a peek...
