Get ready for double the web-slinging action as the all-star creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli bring you Spider-Men #1!

But little does Peter know that there’s a new friendly neighborhood Spider-Man in town – Miles Morales! What will happen when these two amazing superheroes put their web-heads together – and when Peter finds out that he’s been dead? Find out in Spider-Men #1!
So how is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire? Simply incredible. From the first second the film begins till the final few minutes you feel like you are on a rough and wild adventure at sea. Normally I would say a roller coaster ride, but some of the scenes in Goblet of Fire are so intense [the dragon!] that the pacing must jump considerably from action to story and back to action again; as if you hit a large wake in your path. The abrupt changes of pacing may throw some moviegoers not familiar with the books off. But don’t worry, the pacing is pretty right on with the story; well, maybe the story on steroids.
Luckily, this minor ‘flaw’ [if you’d call it that] is easily covered up with a photo-realistic dragon, an underwater adventure, and a surprisingly emotional scene by the end of the film. Though some may find the ending a bit anti-climatic, this is how the story of Harry Potter goes and the movie serves as a perfect introduction of what to expect from later films.
Remember, things are going to change. And, if things continue as they have, I cannot wait to see what Steve Kloves and friends have in store for us next. For now, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has earned itself a second viewing.
