Cool villian..... excellent focus.. in this movie... thrilling action from spidey. Superb marvel hero movie. Top of the bunch and there are quite a few already. Brilliant cast. Tobey is the original spidey and is much better than Andrew Garfield. Alfred Molina played the Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde was the perfect villian. With 4 extra serperine tentacles to inflict damage, the tussle with Spidey was superb.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Sally Field makes a fine aunt and Emma Stone was a huge improvement to Kirsten Dunst as girlfriend to spiderman. But its toss up who was a better Spidey. Andrew or Tobey. I will pass judgement after I rewatch the 3 Tobey spidey films. A beautifully but tragic last moments when Spidey attempt to rescue his sweet heart as she free fell many meters from the top of the clock tower. The film went into slow movement showing spidey diving and casting his sticky spidey web. The web caught girlfriend Emma just before she hit concrete. Alas the bungee effect meant the web didnt stop at point of contact with Emma. Grief of Spidey took him out of action for a long long time, a sign of deep love of girlfriend. Thankfully, Spidey was able to snap out of it in the end to move on with his life.

Every Day (2011)

A stellar cast but the story of a dysfunctional family failed to impress because of missed opportunities. The last months of a dying grandfather Brian Dennehy living with his daughter (Helen Hunt) and son in law, Liev Schreiber, a writer for TV show, gay teenage son and a younger son. A trying time for the family given grandfather's trying physical and medical needs. LIev's conscientious husband, father and son in law role gave us a talkative and caring character that was quite refreshingly different from the usual cheerless, grim faced man of few words 'Ray Donovan'. Liev had more lines in this one film than the whole season of 'Ray Donovan'. Except for one short scene of music ensemble at the end with daughter and grandsons surrounding the ailing grandpa, there were not enough tender moments to convince us viewers the ending where the family appeared to be sombre in grief while the ashes of grandpa were scattered in the ocean.

Don't need to wait long. Just 30 minutes into the film before one gets to see the famous 'beach necking scene' between a young Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr. Watching this black and white film 70 years later is like opening a time capsule to peak at life in the US (Hawaii at least). A star studded cast, although I doubt none is a alive today. An absolute sign of the times in pre-civil rights movement of 50s, not a single black actor or character in the US army or civilian population of Hawaii. Being Hawaii, there were of course Asian bartender and civilians. With invasion of the Pearl Harbour as the historical focal point, a remake of the film today, even if there is vociferous protests from the loud black community, changing the demographics in the film would alter the accuracy of history. The film has provided me a good starting point to read Montgomery Clift's biography.

Superb horror film because of the immensely talented cast. Not since Linda Blair's exorcism has another exorcism so engrossing for me. Though less frightening, this one has a lot more heart and soul in it, even though it wasn't performed by a priest. Patrick Wilson nailed his role as an aspiring expert in demonology, a loving husband and father and first and foremost, a concerned and kind hearted human being.
