Get ready, here's the next step in Spidey's evolution.. The hipster skateboarder! This film doesn't suffer from the same cliches as its predecessor and the character relationships seem more natural. Gwen Stacey(Emma Stone) and Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) naturally notice each other and become naturally enamoured with one another and you really want them to … Continue reading Amazing Spider-man nerdy coolguy? Homecoming part 2.
I'll start with man who started it all Sam Raimi's Spider-man, Tobey Maguire. This film's story has not aged well. Tobey's Peter isn't just a nerd he's a loser. If you forget at any stage don't worry the movie will remind you so you feel extra sorry for him, Flash played by Joe Manganiello starts … Continue reading Homecoming and the Tale of three Spider-men Part 1.

Now that being said I respect that he did his own thing and the studio let him. I would have been disappointed if they just remade … Continue reading Planet of the Apes (2001)

He is telling children of the tale of how Caesar came to be, and … Continue reading Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973)

I will explore that in my review of Rise and Dawn. This … Continue reading Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972)
A glimmer of hope survived the calamity of the previous film. Zira and Cornelius and the Ape that needed to die to make a point. The point being that gorillas are violent. The first film is mirrored in this. The apes are taken to a zoo where they can observe they're primal counterparts where two … Continue reading Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971)
Oh boy, this film may not be as iconic as the first film in the series but it has some very striking imagery and messages. Taylor is lost and another astronaut from the past who looks like Charlton Heston and acts like Charlton Heston but he's younger and handsomer so naturally he's the star. Even … Continue reading Beneath the Planet of the Apes. (1970)
