Well that was a totally different Parker

Salam Nisfu Shaban and Happy 4th of July
And you know what that means? Holiday!!!!! and just right on time...cause I can go watch Spiderman..and I just did!!


Here's my thoughts on The Amazing Spiderman

It was in a way great!..it certainly went for a different direction. It's more how should I put this..I guess I would say less comic-cy (if that's even a word), like Sam Raimi's Spiderman when I see the movie it felt like an adaption from the comic in which I like..this time around it's more real, less comical (now THAT's a word) slightly darker.


Peter this time around is mostly pissed and they found a pretty good actor to convey the emotion to screen, Andrew Garfield I can say is a sound choice, but I do still think Tobey McGuire is THE Peter Parker. The other cast member did a fairly good job, was surprise to see C. Thomas Howell and Embeth Davidtz making small appearance in the movie. Now Gwen Stacy, Emma Stone nailed it..she's the perfect Gwen and character wise she was awesome! unlike Mary Jane whose job was just to scream a wail..Gwen fought back and she was pretty smart! (Mary Jane still got the body though..hello upside down kiss!)The Villain, he was ok...nothing can top Dr. Octopus who was more the sympathetic villain than The Lizard.

Story was good, very clear despite being a darker version of the first 3 films. I like that they started in high school and stick there till the end of movie. That's 1 thing I really like this one in comparison to the first Sam Raimi's Spiderman, the didn't rush the makings of Spiderman. I also like the mystery behind Spiderman's family..come to think of it, I don't really know his origin..then again I don't read Spiderman..I know bits of his character and that is all.

Overall, it's definitely good..but I miss Tobey McGuire and Sam Raimi's touch...oh another thing I miss; j jonah jameson!



p/s : stay for the credits, it's nothing much really..but just stay.

No reason to exist whatsoever, but it’s still a fun, superhero flick that’s being released at a perfect time. However, I kept on being reminded of the original series every single time the film would touch on a plot-point. Too distracting for me at times, but I still had fun none the less. Solid review.
