Film review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man

It’s been a great Easter for family movies!  Rio 2 and Muppets Most Wanted for the younger film fans, Captain America:The Winter Soldier for the older ones.  But the big film aimed at the holiday is The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

It’s another super hero and another sequel.  But the great thing about Spidey is that he’s not like all the others.  True, he takes his mission very seriously but, unlike them, he’s blessed with a sense of humour, taunting and teasing his adversaries, so to the outside world it appears like he’s simply having fun.  And when he gets the chance to freefall over the city of New York, he most definitely is having fun!

Just in time for the Easter school break, Rio 2 is released in UK cinemas this weekend. In the past, sequels of good movies were usually disappointing with a few exceptions (The Godfather 2), but most recently it seems as sequels are well made movies in their own right, sometimes even better than the original ones (Muppets Most Wanted and Monsters University). Rio 2 is no exception. Its storyline is completely new featuring the most amusing characters from the first film and adding some new ones.

The Muppets hit London again! Muppets Most Wanted film review

Mar 28 2014

When you thought the last Muppets movie was the best you have ever seen, they do it again and Disney releases the best Muppets of all times.  Muppets Most Wanted is like the Muppets Show meets 007 meets The Pink Panther.  It has all ingredients for the perfect movie to entertain both parents and children alike. As in all Muppets movies you can read the storyline at two different levels. The kids enjoy the funny characters and their moves and expressions while the adults will read the subtlety of the lines.
