The Amazing Spider-Man

Remembers seeing the new Spiderman movie today,  actually enjoyed it although the lizard man wasn't quite the way he thought it should be after the comic books , cartoon and action doll from thirty five years ago and many of the scenes of the Lizard Man and Spiderman looked very CGI-ish, but really one can't expect too much in today's mainstream cinema and well he has not heard of the director before and if he never heard of the director's name again, it probably wouldn't be bothersome too much,  hardly likely to wonder whatever happened to Marc Webb the film director if he never makes another film but those words could well be eaten in good time. The fact  this review could easily have been written before having seen the movie and not have a different word about it afterwards. 
Enjoyed the main actor Andrew Garfield as Spiderman,  thought that this actor was very good ever since his performance in the movie Never Let Me Go, which is one of the films that is loved here most of all because of its British values. The actor has dual nationality as American and British and can play both in cinema without causing some concern about which side of the Atlantic he thinks he's on.
Then there was Rhys Ifans as the villain of the movie, it was great to see him, a thought occurred that he was great in the TV film "Not Only But Always" as Peter Cook which was about the life of the late Peter Cook and Dudley Moore the British comedians. He was the best person that they could ever have got to play Peter Cook the legendary comedian but Rhys Ifan's acting talents seemed immensely underused in this Spiderman film and it doesn't seem likely that he's ever going to pretend to be a 21st century Peter Cook in these big buck movies for those of us slightly weary of these bloated American offerings.
All in all it was great lightweight entertainment! This writer wont be buying the DVD when it comes out, then he hasn't bought any of the Spiderman films on DVD. He watches them once on the cinema, enjoys them, that's about it and there's really very little else for him to want to watch in them but is happy to cast his mind back to scenes of Doc Ock's tentacles coming alive in Spiderman 2 , and he thought that they were probably the most monstrous things in cinema for at least a couple of decades
