The Amazing Spider-Man

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

Director Marc Webb reboots the classic comic book superhero (not that we needed it), and Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker) makes it work. Garfield captures the character’s duality, and the clean script clears away clutter and makes us think we’re seeing this for the first time. Peter squares off with the genetic expert (Rhys Ifans), who transforms into the Lizard, and hangs out with another girl he loves (Emma Stone). This reboot works.

Rhyme N Rhythm Gets Elemental

By Brjden Crewe

Local band Rhyme N Rhythm has stayed true to the essence of hip-hop since forming in 2006. Their latest music and philanthropic effort spotlights the key elements of hip-hop culture: MCs, b-boys, beatboxing, DJs, spoken word and graffiti. The show, called The Elements, offers a local lineup and benefits the local Boys & Girls Club. In addition to a performance by Rhyme N Rhythm, you’ll get a solid sampling of Las Vegas’ hip-hop scene. Ras One and Phoenix Orion will host.
