    The Amazing Spider-Man

    The Amazing Spider-Man makes a few improvements over Sam Raimi's version, but only because it has the benefit of hindsight to determine what didn't work the last time. It still hits most of the same beats, making it feel like a retread of the origin rather than the "untold story" that was promised.

    Not so amazing.

    Steven Wilson - Insurgentes

    "Strange, beautiful we like.
    But we also like decay."

    Unlike artist documentaries that mainly feature the celebrity, here they are more of a subject for the filmmaker to make his own piece of art around. Steven Wilson's musings on life and music often lead the film to trail off on its own visual trip, marrying images that evoke feelings of melancholy and unease.

    Heat

    Heat is quite possibly the best heist movie I've ever seen, and is quickly becoming one of my favourite movies of all time. The rivalry between Robert Deniro and Al Pacino is enthralling to watch and Michael Mann's direction is impeccable. The script was perhaps without flaw and kept me interested throughout the entire two and a half hour run time. It also contains one of the best shootouts ever filmed. Worth your time and money.

    The Matrix Resurrections

    I know people are skeptical, but I'm fully ready for this franchise to redeem itself. I just hope this movie has a reason to exist.
