Continuing a trend tailor-made for the Twitter generation, here are my quick takes on a few recently-watched genre-related films.
My brief thoughts follow…
- The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) – Considering that I thought this remake was way too soon after Sam Raimi’s version, it was a surprisingly solid and watchable, with enough differences to keep it (mostly) fresh.
- The Dark Knight Rises (2012) – Seeing as how much I adored The Dark Knight, this one had a lot to live up to. It’s not as strong as the previous film (Bane was a little lackluster), but Anne Hathaway rocked it as Catwoman.
- Chronicle (2012) – A wonderfully done superhero film. Period. The only negative was the shaky-cam effect that did more to annoy than instill any sense of reality.
