  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2 2014

    ★★★ Watched 16 Apr, 2014

    It's far too busy for it's own good but as a follow up it can be a lot of fun and with Garfield full settled in his role and Webb making this world all the more expansive and better to look at it's just a shame they are trying to do too much.

    Four years after In Bruges Martin McDonagh returns to deliver a truly bonkers farce filled with wonderful meta-humour carried excellently by maybe the best ensemble cast this year.

    Hilarious dialogue that I've been quoting since i got out of the cinema, just as good as In Bruges at times. Rockwell steals the whole thing with an energetic and mad performance. Gets all the best lines and orchestrates the best scene in the film. His campfire tale is a colossus that…
