The Amazing Spider-Man
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's difficult to gauge how great this movie was merely from the external factors of this being a reboot to a franchise that only concluded 5 years ago. That being said, however, this definitely was the strongest of any of the Spidey films made due to the strength of performances notably by Garfield and Stone. Their chemistry and romance was very charming to watch and Garfield on his own really captured the feeling of awkwardness and being an outcast. While the Lizard doesn't have the same amount of emotional strength that Norman Osborne eventually does in the first film but Ifans does an excellent job and definitely isn't a mediocre villain, but what can you expect when two of the previous films used two of Spidey's most prominent members of his rogue gallery? Overall, it is a superior film to any of the Raimi trilogy and creates a greater emotional connection.

Brave (2012)
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

As we are steadily approaching two decades of a genre that has been defined by the works of Pixar animation, one goes into another Pixar film such as "Brave" with fierce anticipation as well as scrutiny. While this film may not be revolutionary in the story that is being told, the manner of the storytelling itself that Pixar has mastered is well on display here. The voice acting is superbly done and also bears a marvelous soundtrack. The film has a mix of suspense, mild action, heartfelt moments, and terror (albeit moreso for the younger audiences). If one can see the film for it's strengths opposed to merely seeing it as a "middle of the pack" Pixar film, it is thoroughly enjoyable.

Snow White and the Huntsman
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The greatest strength of this film comes from the production values, marking the pure beauty of an enchanted forest to contrast the grisly nature of the Evil Queen and the Dark Forest. The battles are extremely well done. Charlize Theron is excellent as the Evil Queen while Kristen Stewart, while not a breakout role in terms of her acting ability, is kept at a minimum with her lines seemingly to alleviate any misfires. The film does seem to drag in the middle portion and lacks concise plot direction, feeding off the assumptions of the audience of plot direction and "destiny" to lead to a final battle. The film is a worthwhile endeavor for what it does well it does ravishingly so, albeit there are moments of plot drag and direction.
