Fantasy - memorable moments

One of my favourite scenes in the films of Lord of the Rings is Sam's speech towards the end of the second film, where he talks about heroes having the opportunity to turn back. It alludes to the tales in the Silmarillion, Beren and Luthian and others. It's a really nice scene and very poignant.

The other one I like is again at the end of the second film, where Gollum is cursing the hobbits, wringing a branch as though it's their necks. Gollum is gaining control over Smeagol. It's a cracking scene and leads into the music, Gollums song. Brilliant.

Guess where this is?

This looks really exotic, doesn't it. And surprisingly it's Folkstone. Really nice place for a walk by the seaside.

Amazing Spider Man - review

You know what fantasy fans? I really enjoyed this. My youngest son didn't want to see it. I think he was put off by how good the Tobey Maguire version was, but the new version is very entertaining nonetheless.

The CGI just gets better and better. The villain is good and believable in his own way.

It is a similar tale to start with to the Maguire version and that could feel tedious to some, but it really gets going and is good value. Well worth seeing in my view.
