Europa Report

Interesting sci-fi movie set up like a documentary/lost footage. Not a lot happens, but it kept me intrigued. Glad I watched it, but I'm not sure it has much rewatchability. 7.5/10

Damn, spoiler alerts regarding major character deaths please.

Spidey was one of my favorite characters growing up but I have relative little interest in this new one. Too soon for a reboot, and one wasn't needed in the first place. Also, Garfield is too hip/cool/good-looking for my tastes, though he is a quality actor.

I really think this "Marvel Studios allegiance" you speak of is a bit overstated and dramatic. Your average movie-goer isn't drawing lines in the sand regarding who makes what movie. There are fanboys for everything but this sounds like a case of the vocal minority to me. Look no further than how much money Spidey and X-Men make.

I still prefer the original Spider-Man movies although I was a kid during that time so nostalgia might be blinding the shit outta me. Gotta watch the first one again. Spider-Man 2 was just as good on a rewatch for me.

Agree that Garfield owns the character much better than Toby though. Overall ASM2 was decent but had too many different plots and Giamatti's acting was so bad that I'm cringing just remembering it. Garfield-Stone chemistry was the best part

6/10

You're a Spidey fan but have little to no interest in the new film? What? Check it out.

Relatively little interest. Relative.

Claims to be a Spider-Man but is shocked Gwen Stacy dies. Really? It's damn near visible in the trailer. C'mon fellas. Don't come into a movie review thread then complain when you encounter spoilers. Like going into a dark room then complaining about too many shadows.

Still....they have a point, homie. You should've put a spoiler notice, regardless. I think people come in here for recommendations and if spoilers are rampant, it's a bit counterproductive, no?

This. It's commonly accepted to either not include spoilers, or white them out if you do. I don't care for this movie in particular, but still.

I never claimed to be a Spider-Man. Also so much of the lore is re-written/altered ad nauseum in the comics themselves let alone in their film adaptations, who knows if something is gonna happen in this movie, or the next movie, or perhaps not at all.

Blue Velvet - 9/10

Probably my favorite Lynch film. Fantastically creepy and weird. Dennis Hopper is a maniac and plays his role perfectly.
