The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the most comic book a superhero film has ever been and for a superhero like Spider-Man that is really impressive. Special kudos to Mark Webb and Andrew Garfield for ripping this character straight off the page. Now don’t get me wrong I loved the film but not everyone will, if your first experience with spider man was the last film series and not the comics then parts will be jarring but spider-man fans will love the lighter, funnier and quipier spider-man than they have been given in the past. The story is more focused in the sequel as it tries to answer old questions and raises new ones going forward into the franchise. The visuals are great and even though I was a little scared at some of the CGI in the trailers believe me the final product is spectacular. Mark Webb has clearly become comfortable with his new spider-man world and I cannot wait to see what he does next. SINISTER SIX! I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
“Soon everyone in this city will know how it is to live in my world. A world without power, without mercy, a world without Spider-Man. They will see me for who I truly am. I’m Electro.”
Wow was not expecting that, at all. It’s looking very interesting and whilst I have no idea what the final product will deliver I am very interested in this film. Watched the trailer a few times now and my only thought is wow Sony is REALLY going for it! Insane amount of content in this film and there is a lot of stuff I like, and the usual worries I get. We see Rhino, Electro, Green Goblin or Hob Goblin? And easily my favourite scene showing the super tech for the sinister six. Sinister Six! And this is only the trailer for the second film. So yeah I like what I see so far and whether Sony’s strategy of going big or going home works out at least it’s a really big change in the normal formula of superhero films. Come on Webb show us something new. Spiderman, Spiderman does whatever a spider can. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.
“Soon everyone in this city will know how it feels to live in a world without power, without mercy. A world without Spider-Man!”
The Croods wasn’t the best animated kid’s film but it had plenty of humour and impressive visuals to keep it in the green (my rating system). The voice acting was solid from its cast and the story whilst nothing new was enough to keep the viewer (me) entertained for 90 minutes. I can see kids really liking it with its slap stick humour and brightly coloured environment. Like with all Kids films it has an overall message which in this is family and change can be good, relatively simple but it works. Still waiting for How To Train Your Dragon 2 though, come on DreamWorks get your affairs in order.
“This is called a brain. I think that’s where ideas go.”
It has a few flaws, but for a first installment of the rebooted Spiderman franchise it is better than any of the original films, especially Spiderman 3! The characters especially where far better this time around with Andrew showing Toby how to play Peter Parker. I will be looking forward to the next films in this great new Spiderman reboot. But I would love to see flaws I found fixed, they are so small though that a sequel would be able to see and fix them.
This is my top ten horror list I hope you enjoy. Thank all for voting and I hope your film won.
Oh My God what the hell is that, arghghhhh it’s got me! Where’s my shot gun damn it! OH GOD NOT MY BRAIN… [Part 1]
Go into caves, tempt ghosts, open portals into other dimensions, go into any room with a 1408 number, go into a theme park when it’s a zombie apocalypse and drink crazy water![Part 2]
Oh snap! Don’t go in there you fool! WHY DON’T YOU LEARN! Well in top ten horror films part 2 we learn not to go into caves, tempt ghosts, open portals into other dimensions, go into any room with a 1408 number, don’t go into a theme park when it’s a zombie apocalypse and don’t drink crazy water!
Surprisingly funny and realistic, certainly a great watch and a good example of a comedy film with real actors being used to their strengths. At forty something, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the dream-good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart. But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his “perfect” life quickly unravels. Worse, in today’s single world, Cal, who hasn’t dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth. Tim’s Film Reviews Recommended.
