If you don’t understand the language then Jazz might leave you cold, the same could be said for musicals, the rituals, the spontaneity, the drama and the freedom, all are entwined in a system that may seem uncoordinated, clumsy to the naked ear, but let it flow over you, lose your inhibitions and don’t talk through it, don’t talk above it and it will grab your interest. It is in that freedom of expression that the two genres, Jazz and the American Musical come together to make something beautiful in La La Land.

Woody Allen has the most innate ability to bring the peculiarities of death, of outraged calculated murder and righteous despair to any party and then show them to be the most perfect illusions and delusions of the mind. It is a rare quality to showcase an individual and their complete neurosis and give them hope and macabre playfulness.

Some films are just so perfect that the ideology behind them, the message they are meant to represent, doesn’t matter. What matters is the substance, the overall feel in which they leave the audience fulfilled and more content than being told they could eat whatever they wanted over the festive period, it wouldn’t show up as weight gained on the scales at home.

For all the good Toby Maguire and Kirsten Dunst bought to the Spiderman films of the previous decade, there is huge appeal in watching Andrew Garfield play the Marvel Comic book hero and the excellent Emma Stone as the immensely enjoyable Gwen Stacy in the latest Amazing Spider-Man film.

Oh what a tangled web we weave…

Spider-Man is dead…long live Spider-Man…The latest Marvel comic book adaptation is an old familiar favourite, so familiar that it’s just about a decade ago since the world was introduced to the world’s best web-slinger in the form of Toby McGuire.
