With the help of his Wu-Tang Clan compadres, Raekwon (real name Corey Woods) helped redefine the sound of New York City street rap during the ’90s. The group is legendary in their native Staten Island, and even though Raekwon, 47, now lives in Atlanta, he still gets back to the city regularly and will be...

- Once more without feeling — another ‘Spider-Man’ movie
By Mick LaSalle - Monday Jul 3, 2017
[...] that’s what we have here, and that’s what we celebrate today — a pretty good Spider-Man movie.How excited are we at the prospect of another pretty good Spider-Man movie?If we could penetrate the thoughts of others, we would right now be hearing a whole range of responses, from “Not at all, I hate that stuff” to Very excited.You go in one room, and there’s a Crucifixion, a Nativity, an Ascension, an Assumption of the Virgin Mary, and then you go into another room, and then another, and it’s all the same scenes, over and over?Let’s just face the fact that “Spider-Man” has reached such a stage of pervasiveness that a reasonably respectable entry just can’t have the kind of impact it might have had 15 or even 10 years ago.Homecoming is not the masterpiece that makes a case for the form or the outstanding delight that will attract new fans to the Marvel Comics franchise.In possession of certain gifts — he can project sticky webs from his wrists, swing from buildings and move very quickly — he goes out every night looking to aid people in distress.Keaton makes him a complicated and sympathetic villain, just as, a generation ago in “Batman” (1989), he made Bruce Wayne a dark and peculiar hero.Under the guidance of billionaire Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Peter is given an elaborate new Spider-Man suit and a program of training.Much of the appeal of Spider-Man has always been entwined with his being a teenager and experiencing all the attendant pressures and indignities of those years.Jon Watts is a second-time director making his first attempt at a blockbuster, and if his ambition was to make a blockbuster that actually looked like one, that would be understandable.[...] the movie breaks no new ground, and action sequences that were intended to be thrilling — such as an epic battle on the Staten Island Ferry — just sit there on the screen, incapable of stirring a single pulse, but content in their competence.[...] when it comes to superhero movies, there are people who will love every painting in the museum.

THERESA, N.Y. (AP) — A U.S. Army soldier is accused of shooting and killing a New York State Police trooper who was responding to a domestic dispute."Trooper Davis served as a member of the New York State Police for four years and his death is yet another sad reminder of the risks law enforcement officers face each day in order to protect our communities and serve the residents of this great state," the Democratic governor said while urging New Yorkers to keep Davis' family, friends and colleagues in their thoughts and prayers.
