Spiderman, Spiderman, Can Hurt You More Than a Spider Can

The very first thing that stands out for me about this live-action adaptation of the web slinger is, mmmmm pretty Peter Parker. Basically this movie is already winning in my books by casting Andrew Garfield as the webhead. I will be upfront and say I never liked Toby Macguire as Spiderman because I always thought Spiderman would be an attractive guy, or at least that's what the 90s cartoon led me to believe. Another thing that made me like this film more than the Sam Raimi Spiderman affairs was the inclusion of Gwen Stacy as Peter's love interest since she was his first true love (they didn't meet until University), although not his first girlfriend in the comics. Now I will warn you, there may be some gushing about our new Peter Parker and some spoilers, so read on at your own risk.
You can sling me with those webs any day.

BATMAN! (The Dark Knight Rises)

Ok, so it may be called The Dark Knight Rises, but that is just such a long winded title that I'm far to lazy to constantly type out. So I'm going to call it Batman from now on. Besides I know that thats the only thought going through your head as you watch it. Right now I am writing this from a greyhound station that actually feels like it could be a set from the movie due to the bleak decor and fluorescent lights. Also I don't have internet here so this is actually being posted long after I've left here. In addition this review will be containing comparisons to previous non-Christopher Nolan Batman movies and a couple of the cartoons, oh and of course a high chance of spoilers as always so read on if you dare!
