  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2 2014

    ★★ Added

    Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are good together, but this sequel's problem is overstuffed with villains and Peter and Stacy's romance is annoying and distracting. I do understand teenage angst is part of Peter Parker's life but it was a little bit too heavy. Also for the villains, while Jamie Fox and Dane DeHaan are good actors. The makers of TAS2 felt like if they grunted, yelled and made their voice deeper it would make a compelling villain. The Winter Solider hardly said a word and was more compelling. William Dafoe will always be The Green Goblin.

One of the best Marvel movies since The Avengers

    This movie is epic, instead of blasting us with excessive special effects and action sequences. Bryan Singer is able to take a step back and fleshes out his characters and plot.

    This is a brilliant way to show that you could make a thrilling film with talented actors, without bombarding us with action scenes. One of the best X-Men films to date.
