About
Nick Valdez likes chick flicks, kid flicks, dick flicks, and skin flicks. Also musicals (Glee!). One time, he wrote a 15 page thesis on the training montage's effect on the hero's journey in Rocky. His favorite film is Zoolander or Machete. If he could mix the two and create Zoochete, he would in a heartbeat. One day he wishes to travel across the United States "David Banner" style while dragging around a player piano or that orangutan from Every Which Way But Loose.

Amazing Spider-Man 3 pushed to 2018, Sinister Six dated

After The Amazing Spider-Man 2's dubious quality (although I was a fan!) and tepid box office performance, it seems Sony's taking a step back with this franchise. In a classic case of "counting chickens before they hatch," So...   more
