Boring and depressing, Let it Be introduces the "fly on the wall" style documentary style, that leaves footage untouched by direction. It has little to offer among the more exciting and ravishing Beatle films. It's insight into the cracks in the Beatles armour that eventually led to the break up is intriguing, but ultimately depressing and gives the film an unwanted negative vibe. You get to witness the Beatles create and perfect songs first hand, which is perhaps the only redeeming quality of this film. Of course, it's portrayal of the Beatles was accurate, but the fact that they captured them "mid break-up" UNINTENTIONALLY just makes the film that much more disappointing. I will give credit where credit is due, and the credit purely lies at the hands of the first hand witnessing of Beatles magic. However, there is little more to it. It is an overall dull and negative vibe, and the whole film seems unfocused and jumpy. And this is coming from a big Beatles fan...
Adam Sandler doing "Adam Sandler" things in a typical "Adam Sandler" movie. The Waterboy is one of Sandler's more forgotten projects, and rightfully so. Sandler feels the need to incorporate an annoying and unnecessary voice to his character throughout the movie, and the film is, of course, ridden with potty humour and juvenile comedy. The whole film is wildly predictable, and for a movie that relies sorely on it's comedy, genuine laughs were extremely rare to come by. It's nothing that Sandler hasn't produced before, the same stupid gimmicks and juvenile humour, except it fails to emit the actual comedy that was possessed by the lies of Happy Gilmore or Billy Maddison. The film is easily predicted, the plot is pedestrian at best, and I found myself terribly disinterested. The only laugh I got out was at some stupid "choo choo" train joke, most likely because I had had my expectations dropped to rock bottom. The Waterboy is typical Adam Sandler comedy, but it's far from his best work. If you really want to see solid Adam Sanlder comedy, you'd be better off with Happy Gilmore.
Similar quality to the first addition, but arguably a more eventful and action packed experience. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a sequel that I was not too excited to witness. I maintain my point that these later reboots shrivel in comparison to the Sam Raimi additions, but I will say that there are some aspects of these modern takes on Spider-Man that do improve the storyline. I really enjoyed Electro as the main villain, mainly due to Jamie Foxx's excellent performance, but felt really let down at the addition of Harry Osborne, whose execution and sub-plot were cliché and boring. It is also an incredibly long film for the amount of actual substance it produces, and should have stuck below the 2 hour mark. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a poorly executed, tolerable addition to the unnecessary and heavily criticised Spider-Man canon.
