    Saw The Amazing Spider-Man. I initially considered it a "Why?" movie, as in "Why even bother remaking a movie franchise that's just 10 years old?" And that's what it ended up being, except it was better than I expected it to be. It was good, not great, and certainly not amazing, especially when pitted against Spider-Man 2, which was a work of genius at the time.

    The CGI for this outing is mostly pretty good, but nothing we haven't seen before. For a movie trying to be "gritty" and "realistic," because I guess that's the fad these days, it still felt like a cartoon. The filmmakers should've drawn from Batman Begins for inspiration on how to make an essentially preposterous storyline dark and gritty, not to mention masterful. And as is, The Amazing Spider-Man, despite clearly having no relation to Sam Raimi's universe, still manages to see little change. I don't understand why they couldn't just continue Raimi's universe with some of the same actors.

    Which brings me to my next point, where Tobey Maguire was a better Peter Parker, Andrew Garfield is the better Spider-Man. I loved Garfield's smart-assed interpretation of Peter's alter ego, but he simply wasn't nerdy enough to be a good Peter Parker.

    Special props go to James Horner's musical score though, which seems to plagiarize Danny Elfman's scores in both Raimi's Spider-Man films and others. Although I guess it's a step up from Horner's renowned self-plagiarizing.

    I'm DVR'ing the Tour de France and the British F1 Grand Prix at Silverstone.

    I'm watching Murray and Federer go at it in the finals at Wimbledon.

    La piel que habito (The Skin I Live In). Disturbing, suspenseful, filled to the brim with crazy people. Loved it, trés Almodóvar.

    Episode #3 of 'The Newsroom' was much better than last week's. But they should get rid of Emily Mortimer as soon as possible.

    How did you like the last two episodes from your American perspective, @DiscoBiscuit?

    I saw Savages today. Pretty good. Nice and violent. Possibly Oliver Stone's best since Natural Born Killers, another excessively and deliciously violent picture.

    She is kind of one note.

    Jeff Daniels and Sam Waterson have impressed me mightily. I'm interested to see where they take the show as it gets closer to real time.

    Jeff's speech at the beginning was pretty good.

    Edit - also the bit about the Tea Party getting co opted by the far right. That was really good and something that most people don't know or don't care about.

    And this:

    "The tea party is being radicalized and their original organizing principles, obliterated, and no one should be laughing anymore. They should be scared shitless. My party is being hijacked and its happening in real time."

    Lastly and most importantly, the fact that it needs to be a republican pointing these things out.

    Her 'funny' scenes are unwatchable.

    Agreement here.

    I expect they will use him the way they used Ainsley Hayes (Emily Procter) on 'The West Wing'.
