Welcome back to Scotch & Cinema! This week we review the not-so Amazing Spider Man II, directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, and Dane Dehaan.

Don’t get us wrong, we dig Spidy. This one just wasn’t a hit in our books.

Need some strong spirits to get through the movie? We got your back. Try saving the day after this:

I. Whenever you feel foreshadowing is beating you over the head – Take a drink.

II. Whenever you hear dramatic music – Take a drink.

III. Whenever Spidy and Gwen get back together – Take two drinks

IV. Whenever Electro gets pissed – FINISH YOUR DRINK.

If you know of any indie flicks you think we should cover, or if you just love our drinking game, give us a shout on our twitter @Jess_Ayn

We’d love to hear your feedback!
