Out Now – 3rd July 2012

The Amazing Spider-Man
Two years and 6 months ago the first ever post on this blog was a cynical comment about this reboot. All this time later and I am now excited for this release but can’t see it as thanks to the blog I started I am at a press screening. Ah, the irony. For some this franchise relaunch comes too soon after Raimi’s trilogy span its last web but as someone who was never convinced by Tobey Maguire and friends I welcome the new crew. And what a crew! Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield, Martin Sheen, Sally Fields and Marc Webb are all welcome to drop in for tea any time and to have them all working on the one film is a tantalising prospect. Reviews have been lukewarm but few are properly negative so I will be buying a ticket as soon as I can, which will be… Monday. Bugger.
