Episode 58: “The Amazing Spider-Man”, “Swing Lo Magellan” & Catch Up 2012 Edition: “Arrietty”

This week Adam & Simon do some serious swinging in both the film and music departments (probably the best unintentional tie in yet) whilst we discuss new reboot of the Spider-man franchise directed by Marc Webb “The Amazing Spider-Man” and also new album from experimental indie rockers Dirty Projectors entitled “Swing Lo Magellan”. Meanwhile we also catch up with Studio Ghibli film released earlier in the year “Arrietty”. Enjoy!

One response to “Episode 58: “The Amazing Spider-Man”, “Swing Lo Magellan” & Catch Up 2012 Edition: “Arrietty”

  1. I didn’t like Arrietty that much. I kept waiting for something to happen, but nothing did. Maybe it’s to do with expectations – I watched a BBC adaptation of The Borrowers (staring Christopher Eccelston and Stephen Fry) shortly before watching Arrietty, and it was fun and funny. The Gibli version felt a bit flat to me. Maybe it was the English language version that sucked the life out of it.

    Also, in relation to the Spiderman film, I don’t have any issues with reboots with comic book movies – comic books reboot characters all the time (that’s why Spidey’s not in his 50s). But not having seen the film, I can’t comment on it specifically. But I was talking to someone whose friend had been to see it in the cinema 8 TIMES already. And was planning more viewings.

    Oh and Adam, have you played Psychonauts yet? I finished it recently, and while the controls can be a touch annoying, everything else about the game is amazing!
