    That's why I didn't really think Django Unchained was that great, solid script as always but it looked like he just rehashed a lot of old western scenes. It's fine because he'll say he's paying homage and shit but Django is an overrated film in my view.

    Oh, I get where you're coming from & I'm a Tarantino fan. I've seen Reservoir Dogs, the Kill Bill moves, Death Proof, & plan on watching more of his movies. I think I was probably less impressed by the action than I expected because of the brilliant dialogue. Don't get me wrong though, it'll be a movie I'll watch any time from here on out.

    You didn't need to watch it to come to that conclusion
    I'd rather have nothing than have a lie.

    Watched 'The Amazing Spider-Man' last night.

    I'm having a hard time deciding if it's better start to the rebooted series than the Sami Raimi Spider-Man series. One thing I'm adamant about is that Andrew Garfield is FAR too 'good looking' to play Peter Parker. Tobey Maguire actually looked like Parker from the original comics or cartoon and played the 'geek' aspect of the character much better than Garfield IMO. Having said that, Garfield's actual acting was fantastic. He's well known for playing complex characters really well and he was no different here.

    Although the character, or rather the alter ego of Lizard itself, was a bit of a one dimensional villain (in comparison to Williem Defoe's Green Goblin which was a masterful portrayal IMO, or Alfred Molina's Dr Octopus), I think Rhys Ifans did well with what he had to play with, and given that Connors is a recurring character in the cartoon/comics (we often in the cartoon see Parker consult Connors if something is wrong with him physically regarding his DNA or whatever), then I hope that the same will happen here too, although it's evident that Connors is in jail for the time being at least, and so will probably not be in the next film.

    I also liked that they tweaked a few things from the Sami Raimi series. Fro example, In the Raimi series, Spider-Man is able to shoot web from his wrists, which is a misconception, because in actual fact, he uses web shooters, which is corrected in the reboot. Also, I liked that they corrected the love interest of Parker in the new film. Although MJ Watson is the most notable of Parker's love interests, Gwen Stacey is in actual fact his first love interest in the comic books, and it's good to see the new series correct that too. This is also a good time to tip the hat to the chemistry between Garfield and Emma Stone, so good because of their real life relationship (lucky bastard that Garfield). I hope they don't break up anytime soon though, since there's 4 more films in the pipeline in this new series.

    All in al I really enjoyed the film, and I can't wait to see how the series develops. A few things about the next installment have been revealed, such as the main and secondary villain, the introduction of Norman and Harry Osborne, I think they've also mentioned that MJ will be introduced at least in the next film, but won't have a large role.

    Still not sure if it's better than the first film in the previous series, but I think it's just as good.

    Still haven't got around to seeing that yet ^

    Last movie I watched was 'Goon' which was a dumb predictable comedy.That was exactly what I was in the mood for so all was well. I saw that Sean William 'I'm going to be typecast as Stiffler for the rest of my career' Scott was on the cover so I knew what I was getting with it!! However dumb and predicatable it was though it was also quite charming with it, so that was nice
