“Valentine’s Day” is being marketed as a Date Movie. I think it’s more of a First-Date Movie. If your date likes it, do not date that person again. And if you like it, there may not be a second date.

SONY Amazing Spidey 3D

The Amazing Spider-Man 3D 2012  from SONY Pictures is simply the best film i’ve seen in 10 years and the best 3D film i’ve seen ever ! (however to be fair i’ve not seen very many in that time)


  • the SONY unbranding of the Pentax SLR camera
  • the SONY product placement of SONY VAIO notebooks
  • the SONY product placement of SONY XPERIA android mobiles
  • the screenplay
  • the 3D effects
  • New York
  • the comedy
Not sure about:
  • one corny line from auntie at the end
  • Gwen being 17 – according to IMDB Emma Stone is already 24


Go see it ! And go see it again if you didn’t see it in 3D the first time ! Then go see it in IMAX 3D !
