GOTG 8/10
Enjoyed it quite a bit, but less so on a second viewing.

How to Train Your Dragon 2

It was a story worth telling. It builds well on the world the first movie established.

8.5/10

The CGI is gorgeous and the visuals are outstanding. The action sequences are a treat to the eye. The narrative is non linear with a few throwbacks to the past, but it is none convulsive or confusing to those unfamiliar with the franchise. I love the comedic vibe that Garfield gives to Spidey. He really portraits the character and his legendary New York wit well.

Although the villains leave a lot to be desired, the relationship between Peter and Gwen (Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone) is the highlight of the entire movie. It is definitely a love story that reaches a "Romeo and Juliette" climax with a lot of tact and respect for the source material. I believe that nothing else could have been done better to approach one of the most tragic events in Comic Book history, than the way done here. Definitely the sequel is better than the first film by a small margin, but a step forward nonetheless.

7.5/10 - Very Good


Great review. This sums up my feelings exactly!

I would add that the Spidey costume looks epic! Best representation on film! AND...Garfield wears the mask through out the film and only takes it off in moments that actually make sense...

I agree. The costume was a lot better than the first. Really looking forward to the next installment.

Sin City 2: 3.5/5

A very good sequel to a great film. Didn't feel like it dragged at any point and was very entertaining. Eva Green rules.

Some Ingmar Bergman summer films:


Sommarlek / Summer Interlude (1951) - While waiting for the night rehearsal of the ballet Swan Lake, the lonely twenty-eight year-old ballerina Marie recalls her first love Henrik.

It's a sad, but beautiful story. 8/10


Sommaren med Monika / Summer with Monika (1953) - Harry and Monika leave their families and jobs and spend the summer together on an isolated island.

I liked this one more than when I watched it the first time last summer. 8/10

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

HOUSE (1986) - 8/10

Great 80's horror/comedy. Norm from Cheers is in it. Great 80's practical special fx/makeup. Awesome movie.
