I have to say that this latest round of SPIDERMAN films has me scratching my head. THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN of a couple of years ago had some great stuff (a wise-cracking Spidey, a good love story) and some not-so-great stuff (the Lizard, the weird alterations to the origin story). Overall I enjoyed the film but thought it could have been better. Now we get THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN 2 and while more enjoyable than the original, the inevitable sequel still suffers from some tonal problems and character motivations that make this film a somewhat frustrating experience at times.

Had Paul Walker not died so tragically a few months ago, I doubt his last completed film would arouse that much in the way of curiosity. When BRICK MANSIONS goes for the action gusto, the film powers to life with some great stunt work and some truly electric set pieces. However, this remake of Luc Besson’s and Pierre Morel’s DISTRICT B13 from 2006 often sticks itself in neutral with stock characters, silly plot contrivances and some truly hideous dialogue.

Bad films are one thing (HAUNTED HOUSE 2, anyone?), but disappointing films are worse. I remember how disgusted I felt after watching the mess that was Ridley Scott’s THE COUNSELOR a few months ago. Now I get the same feeling with TRANSCENDENCE, a film that wastes a fine cast on a half-baked story with pacing issues a garden snail would take issue with.

Horror movies are a dime a dozen and the good ones are scarcer then hen’s teeth, so it’s always a pleasure to see something inventive and genuinely creepy come down the road. Last year it was James Wan’s THE CONJURING. This year it looks like it’s going to be writer/director Mike Flanagan’s OCULUS. It doesn’t quite match THE CONJURING scare for scare, but it’s in the same ballpark and that’s nothing but good news for horror movie fans.

It always comes as a shock when one of the greats passes, even if said great is of an advanced age and has lived an extraordinary life.  I found myself surprisingly emotional when it was reported that legend Mickey Rooney had passed at the age of 93.  The man had a long lived and eclectic career and, at the height of his fame, drew crowds on par with Bogart, Wayne, or Grant.  My generation knows him primarily from movies like PETE'S DRAGON or THE BLACK STALLION, but he was a tireless, constant worker.  His personal life was a bit of a mess, but I don't really care about that.  (That's why they call it personal!).  To me, Rooney will be always be known as a human little engine that could, a diminutive acting giant whose work will always be with us.  Condolences and prayers to his friends and family.  Fare thee well, Mr. Rooney.  SO SAYETH THE KENDOG!
