I have been watching Movie Bob’s reviews and I have enjoyed them a lot, even when I disagree with him. I do disagree with him on the Amazing Spider-man. I enjoyed the movie but I can see some of his points. I agree with him on tying Spider-man’s origin to the Lizard’s. Maybe I like the movie more than I should. I wonder if Movie Bob knowing about the troubled nature of the production influenced his thinking.
My list of upcoming movies that I want to see in 2013 has mostly sequels or remakes. I am not sure if that says more about my taste in movies or the system of movie making in today’s market. Maybe I should take a closer look at the 2013 release calendar. I could have missed something.
Killing Them Softly comes out this weekend. I think it might be good. It is based on a George V, Higgens novel and stars Brad Pitt. Previews look good and early reviews are good.
