PostSubject: Amazing Spider-man Not so much....   Thu Jul 05, 2012 3:49 am

Well I saw this last night.

I wasn't impressed. It had it's too few moments but like I thought, it was too soon since the last Spider-man and the whole time I was comparing it to the first one. I didn't like Garfield's quirky Peter Parker and how he was an outcast skater boy instead of science wiz kid nerd always with his nose in a book. He was highly intellligent but it wasn't presented that way.

Emma Stone I liked, but her involvement at Oscorp as an intern while still in high school was no way going to be believable to me. She is suppose to be the beauty queen/model eye candy of everyone's affection, nothing more.

Captain Stacey was ok. I think Dennis Leary did a good job.
May and Ben Parker on the other hand kind of clashed for me. I liked the original Aunt may way better.

And No Daily Bugle or Jay Joana Jameson. The original too would have been better, I guess they figured that was a no brainer so they left him out all together.

I give it a solid C+

Yeah I've been reading reviews and It's looking as average as I thought it would be. You can tell from the trailer that it just looks meh.

Cheers for the heads up as well Al looks like I'll defo be giving this a miss. I'll wait for the reboot of the reboot

Speaking of BR only two months til avengers BR Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy I'll get the 3-d one seeing as I've just purchased a 3-d laptop...yeah I spent a bit much but it's literally the only area I like to splash out Laughing

I've really grown to love 3-dfilms since I took my nephews to watch Episode 1 (first film I ever saw in 3d believe it or not)

I'll stick with 2D, I'm just indifferent when it comes to 3D.

She's a beaut! HP Envy 17. 8gb Ram 1 tb HDD, BR Drive, Quad i7, Beats Audio with built in subwoofer. Cos I use design programs I tend to go for powerful Lappies I don't go for Desktops anymore. Don't care for them. So I thought I'd go overboard with this Very Happy

Finally saw it this weekend.

I liked it. Much better than I thought I would.
I set my expectation bar somewhere between Green Lantern & Spider-Man 3 and wound up feeling like it was Batman Begins for Spider-Man.

I didn't like how Uncle Ben was downplayed, and I could've done without any references to Peter's parents or him working for Oscorp. Absolute unnecessary that kinda drug the movie down for me.
And I hated how it took damn nearly an hour for him to be Spidey!

The best thing about the movie was Emma as Gwen Stacy. I thought they handled that part of it just right.
Garfield as Parker was only so-so. The whiny mumbly "yo why you trippin'?" thing he kept doing was a bit annoying. I kept thinking to myself how the kid that played Peeta The Hunger Games would've made a much better Peter Parker.

Oh yeah...favorite Stan Lee cameo by far.

We decided to go all out & do the Imax.
The 3D effects looked wonderful, especially the POV shots. There were a few of the Lizard battle shots in full Imax.

Now I'm just hoping we get a full-on payoff in the sequel. Preferably with a director that has a little more respect for the mythology.

Another girl, and less than a month away!

She's pretty big and it's hard for her to move around so the doc gave us a wheelchair and it got us ahead of the line for the midnight Imax Dark Knight Rises.
We're gangsta like that! Cool

Good luck with everything Gol. And remember what you told me about making time for yourself. Its even more important when there are two little ones.

I'm sure everyone here will help you out with some porn for when the missus is out of action Laughing
