The Amazing Spider-Man

Posted by Troy on 20th July 2012 in Entertainment

They said that this is the one hero that’s meant to be seen in 3D, and I have to agree.  Many times, the 3D aspect really doesn’t add to the enjoyment of your movie going experience, but in this case, the effects are cool enough to warrant the extra money for 3D.

Of course, there as to be a discussion of the differences between the original movies and the new one.  The original movie’s actors look more like the characters should based upon the comics.  However, the newer movie had better acting.  Sam Rami can be a bit campy.  It’s what he’s known for.  The new movie seems to have tried to remove any campy aspects.  The first movie had Spider-man’s webs be organic in nature whereas the new one goes to the unlikely scenario that a teenager could develop webshooters and fluid.  The most glaring difference is the change from “With great power comes great responsibility” to some speech about how having gifts and abilities makes you obligated to use them for the greater good.  Past that, the storyline is more or less the same origin story.

The fights scenes are awesome and entertaining to watch and truly make use of the 3D technology.

I’ve always preferred Marvel to DC.  Of course, the Batman movies are always analyzed by the social commentary they contain.  I don’t see any such commentary or moral (past the great responsibility stuff anyway), but I don’t really care.  I go to the movies to be entertained, and I was greatly entertained.
