Happy 4th of July! I am going to The Detroit Tigers game tonight for free with some friends - so excited! :)
Let me first say I rarely go see movies at midnight. I normally can't stay awake until 3 am! But, I was really excited for the new Spiderman series. I love the last ones and Spiderman is definitely my favorite comic book character. I was extra excited because I absolutely adore Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. They were wonderful together and it is no surprise they are dating in real life.
The only downfall of the movie was that it was pretty similar to the last ones that really didn't come out that long ago. So you pretty much knew what was going to happen if you've seen the other Spiderman movie. Peter Parker lives with his aunt and uncle, Peter gets bit by a radioactive spider, Uncle Ben dies and Peter seeks revenge as Spiderman, there's a mad scientist who accidentally turns himself into an evil creature, they fight, Spiderman prevails. Pretty much the same story.
I still loved it. The greatest thing about those movies is that it has something for everyone. It has lots of action, adventure, drama, romance, sad parts, funny parts, you name it.
Dr. Connor's Lizard Man was pretty creepy and I loved the subtle differences, like the fact it was Gwen Stacy instead of Mary Jane Watson. Andrew Garfield was great as Peter Parker. His awkwardness was adorable and funny. I can't wait for the sequel... you know it is coming!
What do you think? Have you seen it yet and if you haven't, do you plan on seeing it? Let me know your thoughts!
