Now Streaming: The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Need for Speed, and More

by | August 5, 2014 | Comments

This week on streaming video, we’ve got a big blockbuster sequel and a video game adaptation for motorheads leading the bunch. Then, Netflix offers up a couple of action classics, well-received remake of a French comedy, a bodybuilding documentary featuring a young Governator, and a period action film set in an alternate 1939. Read on for details:

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

This time out, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) has a lot on his mind: his relationship with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) is fraught with complications, and he becomes increasingly haunted when new information about the deaths of his parents comes to light. As if that wasn’t enough, our hero must protect the city from the likes of Electro (Jamie Foxx) and the Rhino (Paul Giamatti).

Need for Speed

Aaron Paul stars as Tobey Marshall, a hotshot driver and mechanic with something to prove: he was framed in the vehicular death of a friend and served time in prison. He decides to avenge this injustice by entering a risky cross-country race against his former nemesis.

Mad Max

Part post-apocalyptic sci-fi, part good old-fashioned shoot-’em-up, Max tells the tortured tale of a cop (Mel Gibson) who descends into a hellish spiral of violence after his family is murdered by a gang of lunatics.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

The heroic Sky Captain (Jude Law) and a Royal Navy led by the eyepatch-rocking Francesca “Franky” Cook (Angelina Jolie) goes up against the giant robot army of the nefarious Dr. Totenkopf (Sir Laurence Olivier, in a display of technology both thrilling and sort of creepy) in an alternate version of 1939.
