  • Having just been to see 'The Amazing Spiderman', I was very impressed with Marvel's newest edition to their entourage of film adaptations. Not only is this a good film, well balanced between humour and tragedy, it also reminded me how young I'm growing.

    It seems like only yesterday that Sam Ramai's 2002 'Spiderman' stunned audiences, but looking back it's easy to see how 10years in the film industry ages and Marc Webb's remake, makes it's older counterpart look like an old, wrinkly, and faded comic book. It's hard to believe a decade has past and I'm growing older, like Peter I too am "slowly fad[ing] into the growing darkness". Yet, still, I came out of the cinema jumping and swinging in a vain hope of imitating the arachnic-hero as much as the old comic books left my young imagination swinging off the metropolis of sofa's.

    It turns out, perhaps the darkness is lighter than we thought.
