The Amazing Spider-Man: The new franchise presents the superhero's origin story all over again, but at least director Marc Webb gets it right. The movie delivers everything a comic-book fan could want, including humor, poignancy, thrilling action and expressive work from leads Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.

Your Sister's Sister: An aging underachiever (Mark Duplass) falls into bed with his best friend's sister (Rosemarie DeWitt) in this smart, sad comedy by Lynn Shelton. Watch for a beautiful, ironic speech and a seduction scene that's as true as it is sweet.
