The Amazing? Spiderman…322
Saw Spiderman 2 last night.I don’t get it. I heard reviews that were so incredible, that i thought, going into it, that no matter what i heard about the film, or how good it was, it wouldn’t prepare me for how awsome it was going to be.
I figured that i was going to go in and be totally blown the fuck away. Actually i thought, wow, this isn’t really anything that much greater than the first one. Trust me, i loved the first one, and i loved the second one. I just don’t think that it raised the bar as much as people led me to believe. I was super amped for the Alex Ross opening title sequence, and i knew that it was going to be a different experience. Doc Ock was really cool, but i would rather see him, than Peter Parker at the Regular(non octopuss)Doctor. The “Peter Parker goes to the doctor’s office” scene, was not needed. They kinda covered that ground with the “Aunt May and Henry Jackson” scene. We knew that Peter’s powers were getting in the way of his private life. This is told to us during the “Peter Talks to nobody on the other line” scene. Another scene that could have been cut, to show more Doc Ock, was the “I am a wicked skinny bitch who brought you cake scene”. that was just awkward. Someone get that girl some more cake, stat!
Other than wanting more Doc Ock, i loved this movie. I just feel that it isn’t AS Totally Bitchin Awsomely Dope, as everyone says. I think Sam Raimi did a wonderful job. I think the acting was great, i thought the story was good (“comic-bookly” speaking). and i can’t wait for Harry Osborne and Dr. Conners to kick some Spidey ass!
Go see this movie, it is great!
