    The Dark Knight Rises

    ★★★★★

    Whilst not capturing the dizzy heights of its predecessor, Rises is a near perfect ending to this saga. I fear it will be a very long time before we get a trilogy of films this great, if at all.
    The bar has now been set for fledgling film makers to aspire to. Nolan is the Spielberg of my generation. What next from him - whatever it is, can't wait.....

    The Amazing Spider-Man

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    In some ways this reminded me of the original Superman movie. A slow excellent character based build up, a superb lead in the form of Andrew Garfield and a convincing romantic dynamic. Better than anything the original cast (Tobey / Dunst ) and director (Raimi) came up with - THIS is the Spidey film we deserved in the first place. One of the best comic book films I have seen. Another bonus is the addition of a cracking cameo appearance by Stan Lee.
