    The Amazing Spider-Man 2

    ★½

    What an ugly, overdone score and soundtrack. In true Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman fashion, the story is written as many ideas randomly flopped on top of each other with no focus. Disappointing to see them make Peter Parker go in circles and get nowhere by the end of the movie. No interesting arc or challenge, just fumble around making enemies and uncover your parent's secrets for no motivated reason. We had seen everything this movie attempts handled better already. It's worth watching though for a laugh.

    ★★½

    Bland and too self serious for a movie with a giant lizard man. It's watchable though and Andrew Garfield plays Peter Parker well, he's just a great actor in general.

    After Hours

    ★★★★

    A real contained oddball story. Great quick cut editing, smooth visual transitions, and an emphasis on constant camera movement. It’s a ridiculous story that stacks its disjointed sequences in very funny ways, you just have to let go of the mounting logical errors in terms of the actions of the characters. Great performances too.

    ★★★★★

    Breathtaking and haunting, both in its technical beauty and storytelling scope. It's clinical realism is what makes it so powerful. An odyssey of mankind, life, technology, evolution, but still leaves you with a feeling that there's more to unravel that you can't quite grasp. Nothing else like it.
