REVIEW: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Rise of Electro

The other “franchise” that is not in MARVEL hands (besides FOX-Men or Fantastic Four) has had many ups and downs over the past twelve years (rellay, it has been only twelve years) and this movie is no exception. This review also contains LIGHT spoilers. Continue reading
