Movie Reviewer Andy McKinney finds flaws with "Amazing Spiderman", but not at the box office

Andy says, Some "avoidable flaws restrict this genuine blockbuster to a slightly above average three and a half saw blades.  Strict maybe, but who cares?  This is Spiderman, he is back and the public is eating him up.  In my viewer role, I liked it more than the award of three and a half saw blades might suggest.  Emma Stone can make a whole scene work with just the upturn of her lips."

This week Andy offers a bonus film, "Savages" and provides the following comment:
"Besides the awesome directing and excellent acting, we have a screenplay that is chock full of clever, sometimes insightful, dialog.  The three young dope growers are so laid back, so vapid and ernest that they could only live in California.  There is a beautiful interchange between the head baddie (Selma Hayek) and the dope dealer’s girlfriend that is truly remarkable.  Oliver Stone, Shane Salerno and Don Winslow crafted the screenplay.
            This film is however, horrifying.  The Del Toro character descends beyond brutality and into the truly disgusting.  Nice young pot heads change for the much worse.  This four saw blade film is only for those with a high tolerance for human depravity portrayed by the best in the business."
