The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a disappointment for me mainly because I think the first movie set the right tone but the sequel instead squandered many opportunities particularly in the villain department who had little development to go along with a thin plot that for the most consisted of hating Spider-Man more than anything, especially for Foxx’s Electro.

Never Let Me Go is perhaps the most sadly overlooked picture of 2010. While I doubt any of the three performances were worthy of an Academy Award Nomination but the film as a whole deserved more notice than it received at the box office. With life now on DVD and Blu-ray, I think it’s certainly worth giving a try especially if you liked dramas such as Atonement.
