When I first saw Spider-man gaining attention once again I was pretty excited too see Mary Jane and Peter get it on and have babies and ish like that.
Then when I saw that it twas in fact a new Spider-man
Naturally I thought to myself. Fuck this, another Spider-man. Where does corporate greed end! They’re just trying to squeeze out every last cent Spidey had! Can’t they think of anything new? Tobey Macguire! I hate everything! Coporate Greed! No Mary Jane! WTF The Natural Red-Head is a Blonde! They added The Amazing to make a difference! shit.
Then after I calmed down and shrank back to my normal size putting down the cars and hot dog carts, I noticed, hey, it’s got that guy and Rhys Ifans? And Wait a sec, the new lead roles are Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone both of whom are SuperF-ingCool. Andrew in Social Network and Never Let Me go was so good, but you can see how he can be comedic at the same time. And then Emma Stone, who amazingly pulled off Blonde insanely well as well as being more talented than almost all of the human race combined. Oh and They’re This Now.
And then Marc Webb who’s only previous movie just happens to be a 10 out of 10 Guinesses on my Guiness scale. He also has a very appropriate last name. So needless to say i felt in safe with the Webb that they formed for this movie.
Then came the time to actually see the movie. I was waiting for the film to come down and wrap me up in a carefully formed web cacoon and slowly drain the blood from my soon to be lifeless body, and this movie did all of that.
IN A GOOD WAY! This movie really caught me off-guard. Owen Glieberman of Entertainment Weekly gave it an A- and I tend to agree with that man, every now and again. But agree with a reboot series A-? ahhmmm…. I wouldn’t have thought I would.
But I’d defintely agree. This film was a relief and had everything you could possibly want from a movie. It was funny, action packed, quickly paced, great characters, actors, and crew. I was a fan from start to finish. Here’s just a few things to look forward too if you’re going to watch it. (without giving too much away)
- Emma Stone
- Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield Chemistry: A+
- Much better storyline and Spider-man (did some stuff Spider-man really would not just fly around screaming ala Tobey)
As Owen G. put it, this is a big budget big everything movie that still kept an Indie feel and I really think that was retained through director Marc Webb and the excellent chemistry between Emma and Andrew.
This movie is definitely worth seeing, I won’t give anything away but I didn’t see this in 3D, so that might just have to happen for me.
