April 2014 – Yo, Sparkles!

Tracks PosterI didn’t spend quite as much time in the cinema this month as I’d have liked to, though that’s largely because I spent the first week of April walking from Milngavie in Glasgow to Fort William in the Scottish Highlands and the next week writing about it.

That said, I spent the 31st of March watching Noah, Divergent and The Raid 2: Berandal, so there was still plenty to write about when I’d finally finished with the West Highland Way. I eventually even got around to reviewing Calvary, which I had seen in February at the Glasgow Film Festival.

My first new film of April was Veronica Mars, which was soon followed up with The Amazing Spider-man 2 (which I really liked, regardless of what everyone else might have thought), Tracks (which had me on the verge of tears almost from its opening scene) and Pompeii (the second worst film Paul W. S. Anderson has ever made).

For HeyUGuys I wrote two blogs after an unintentionally long absence from the site: Six Sinister Questions That The Amazing Spider-man 2 Must Address (in reality it managed five) and Eight Creatures We’d Like To See In The Goosebumps Movie. Additionally, having initially closed its doors at the beginning of the month, I filed my first review for a revived BestforFilm.

I ended the month with not-Disney’s Tarzan, a 3D CGI motion capture that had its moments, and Plastic, a British crime caper that sadly did not. I also saw Frank, Next Goal Wins, Brick Mansions and The Wind Rises, though I’m embargoed on each until their respective weeks of release.

Film of the month: Tracks
