Movie Review: The Amazing Spider-Man

Hello Gorgeous Reader!

 

It’s time for another movie review! This time it’s “The Amazing Spider-Man”. I don’t know where they got the title but it actually tells a lot about the movie. It’s just like “Spider-Man” only… amazing?! LOL ^_^

Well, as a frequent movie-goer, I’m not the kind who can easily get ’amazed’. Which is why I couldn’t really say that I was ‘amazed’ by the movie. I would say however, that with a point of comparison (which is the 2002 version) this film is surely better.

Now  I’m not going to go to so much details on this because I wouldn’t want to spoil too much and make your eyes bleed reading (LOL). I’ll just go to a few points.

1. Spider Man Actors

Although, Tobey Maguire is what I would say handsome or beautiful man; Andrew Garfield had better acting than Tobey. This makes a big difference watching a movie. Maguire’s acting is like “I’m a beautiful man and beautiful droplets of tears will roll from my beautiful eyes”. Whereas Garfield’s acting says “I’m just a guy and my world is crashing… tears pour. This is very important because the lead role sets the mood of a superhero movie. The difference can go from shallow non-sense to believable.

2. Where the heck is Mary Jane?

There’s no Mary Jane in the movie which leads me to believe an ever cliché ‘love triangle’ might await the viewers in the next films. (Yes, there’s a cliffhanger before the credits so don’t leave the theater right away if you want to see)

3. Greatness is Not a One-Man Show

This is not outright said in the movie but I feel that it is something very important. For something to be great; it must always involve people coming together for a single cause. And this is what I saw, with the police letting Spider-Man go, the people who worked the cranes, the helicopter lighting his way, and the traffic enforcer clearing the road. For me, such is greatness. A hero or a superhero for that matter, could not symbolize heroism if the very people he is trying to protect dislikes him. This is one thing that makes this movie sensible. That the pieces of the story; Peters parents, his Uncle Ben’s death, contributed to him becoming a hero in a unified sensible way which was all a blur and non-sense in the last movie.

4. Some Minor Details

Thank god, uncle Ben is no longer a taxi driver! (LOL) My disappointment however was that I thought Spider-Man was going to be as chatty as the comic and animated version, which the trailer seems to lead, but it’s not like that in the movie, that was just the one and only scene he was chatty. But it’s good that those spider webs don’t shoot out of his wrists like the last version ‘coz that creeped me out!

 

So on the rate of 1 to 5; five being the highest, I give this movie

a FOUR, go watch and share your own opinion reader!

  2. What does Spiderman do when he wants to have a pee? I never noticed a crotch zip in his costume.

  6. Hey doll thanks for doing this review, I too wonder why it was named the 'Amazing' Spiderman. I don't usually watch superhero flicks but now hearing that you said Andrews acting was quite good, I am interested to see it. And i am a fan of Emma Stone.

    1. Hi Sam! ^_^

      you should see it, it's a bit of a drama movie too. Emma Stone is a fashionista. she really dresses up real well and she's funny!

      have a great day Sam!

  8. Hey Joan sorry it's been so long, I'm not entirely sure you're name is Joan xD Blogger was just evil and wouldn't tell me any of your updates :( Anyway, I'm pretty sure that "The Amazing Spider-Man" is the full name of the comic, like X-Men is called "Uncanny X-Men". Peter Parker was very talkative in the comics and the 90's cartoon but that's because he was giving a running narrative, and reacting to everything. I don't know why they won't really put that in the movies. It really helps people get closer to him. Oh well. It does sound like a pretty good movie though :)

My Speech as a Guest Speaker

Hello Gorgeous Reader!Last March 28, 2014 , I got the rare opportunity to give a speech at the graduation ceremony of my alma mater KM5 now named Fr. William F. Masterson S.J. elementary school.So a little back story. I gave a speech on my own graduation way back year 2000 and it was miserable. I was very sick that day, I even passed out at school before the program. I was there because I volunteered to help with the preparation stuff. During the program I was puking, the world was spinning and I felt so cold. They had me seated while I gave my speech and well, I cried. But I knew I had the best of friends then because my classmates cried with me. Although I know that some of my batch-mates are far more successful than I am and thus more credible to give a speech; I didn’t think twice and said ‘yes’ to my former teacher’s invite. After all, not everyone gets a shot at redemption. (shoutout: *Thank you very much Sir Janeo for the opportunity.*)Okay, so here’s the speech that I gave. It…

Pamamanhikan: A Filipino Tradition

Hello Gorgeous Reader!This is actually an over due blog post. I’ve written a previous draft on this weeks ago but for some reason my computer decided to delete all my drafts. Now I’m forced to rewrite this blog or technically write a new one.Last April first my fiancé went to my residence to formally ask for my hand in marriage from my parents. This is a tradition among Filipinos called “Pamamanhikan”.We’ve been talking about having each other’s parents meet after the engagement. Our first option was to take them out for dinner. But we kind of hesitated over the idea because it would be super awkward to talk about our marriage plans with other people eavesdropping on us at a restaurant. Alas, it was my fiancé’s trusted league of merry-men (a.k.a his workmates) who convinced him to do it the traditional way. That is, to go to my house with his parents and family members bringing food. It was a great idea since it would be the best venue for our families to meet so that the wedding itse…

How to Get Married: Legal Requirements

Hello Gorgeous Reader!NOTE: Please be informed that this blog is based on Cagayan de Oro City requirements. The process for other places may vary and is beyond my jurisdiction. @_@For a marriage to be called valid or legally binding; it must be registered/recorded at the government branch called Civil Registrar. It is basically the logbook of our government. The legality of a marriage has many purposes such as civil, financial,  health benefits, and many more.Below are the steps to get your “Marriage License”.STEP 1Find someone who is willing to marry you. This someone must not be currently within a marriage or ‘free to marry’. Note that there is no divorce in the Phils. Even if that person has been living separately from his/her spouse for longer than 10 years he/she is still considered married by law unless his/her wife/husband is already dead. This person must also be of legal age (18 years old and above). If either of you are within 18-21 years old; you are required to present an …
