You'll get mixed responses about The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Personally, I liked it a good deal. The chemistry between Peter and Gwen is terrific and there's a ton of silly fun and heart. The story is really generic and the villains aren't the best around, but if you just want to enjoy some popcorn fun, you should have a decent or even good time. It's familiar but fun, I'd say. Tons of flaws, sure, but for me, the good made up for the bad. As for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, I think it's brilliant. Stunning visuals, great characters, a smart script, and just the right amount of crazy, jaw-dropping action. Did you see Rise of the Planet of the Apes?
