Best NZ film I've watched, just majestical! Full of humour throughout but it's the acting & script that shines, dealing with loss and abandonment plus showcasing the stunning vistas of Aotearoa.
Also a deeply appreciative full house at The Embassy along with a Q&A session with Taika Waititi, Sam Neill & Julian Dennison, made this the best cinema experience I've ever had!
Will be watching this one again and again for sure.
Loved the reboot of Spidey!
Enjoyed it much more than the first time we were introduced to Raimi's vision of Spiderman. Even though the guts of the story was pretty much a rehash of what we've seen earlier, I thought the cast did a fantastic job keeping it feeling new. Andrew Garfield was a perfect Peter Parker and I enjoyed Rhys Ifan's Lizard as a first up villain much more than Dafoe's Green Goblin. Emma Stone was fantastic too.
All in all, a thoroughly entertaining movie that I look forward to seeing again.
I don't have to write much, someone else's review aligns with my thoughts - letterboxd.com/shanderson88/film/the-fault-in-our-stars/
Final paragraph sums it up best - "the experience almost felt therapeutic, the ability to release so much emotion while watching a film I had fallen in love with. I cried and I cried and I cried, and fuck did it feel good."
