Amazing Spider Man 2 – Movie Review!!!

amazingspidey2intl2small

Spidey is back and how!!! The sequel to the ‘Amazing’ Spider-Man franchise, that rebooted the Tobey Maguire’s SpiderMan series is here and has done a pretty decent job. Before starting to talk about the movie, a take on the comparison with Tobey’s version. The Amazing series is more flashy and more beyond reality kinda movie, whereas Tobey’s version used to seem more grounded and more real, even though his version of Spider Man was even more gifted with real web shooting from his wrists, unlike Andrew Garfield’s version who uses machine to shoot webs. But the way the villains and the technology itself is depicted in the Amazing series is a bit far-fetched. Moreover, the script writers have done a good  making this movie go in a bit different path, while staying loyal to the original story line. So in other words, both the series cannot be compared.

Will try NOT to make this post a spoiler for the people who are looking froward to watch the flick.

The movie has new actors joining the franchise for the sequel, Jamie Foxx as the Electro, Dane DeHan as Harry Osborn and the remaining characters from the first movie reprising their roles. Having the main villain as Electro, expect loads and loads of light shows in the movie. The writers have done a good job linking the first movie with the sequel, talking about the reality of Peter’s parents. The action sequence is off charts. The stunts and dramatic slow motions in between have been placed very well. Some of scenes felt a bit visually exaggerated though, like the scene where Spidey and Electro fight at the power station the power grids start lighting up as if they are acting like the equalizer to the background score playing. The movie does feel like it is being dragged a bit somewhere during the middle of the story but then it picks up again and runs to the end. Other than Electro, Spidey also has two other villain to fight, Green Goblin and Rhino. Rhino is hardly there in the movie though, but the evolution of Green Goblin has been shown well, as to how the hatred starts filling in Harry’s head against Spider Man and eventually his buddy Peter Parker.

The movie is a ride filled with excitement, action, drama, emotions and one heck of a light show. Would stop right here, before I spill out some important parts of the story. I would give the movie a 3 and Half stars out of 5.

***.5/5

So how did you find the movie?

 

PS: There is a scene after credits you might wanna watch out for!!!

The Amazing Spider-Man – New trailer out!!!

The latest “The Amazing Spider-Man” movie trailer is out and its freaking awesome! The movie seems to have a dark touch to it as I had mentioned in my last post. The story will be revolving around an ‘Untold Story’ about the super hero, which involves his late father Mr. Parker to having been involved in a secret scientific research at the time when he was still alive, which was supposed to change the lives of millions. And when the research actually gets over, it gives birth to a demon whom we know better as “Dr. Lizard”. The movie would focus more on unfolding the story of Peter’s parents, as he tries to find out all the facts regarding how they meet their demise, which is never mentioned of in the original series.

Well… the trailer looks amazing, and I for one, have already buckled up for the flick. The effects look really awesome as far as can be made out from the trailer. Remaining… I would let you all to decide for yourselves. Watch the trailer right here…

So… what are your thoughts about it?

Its Gonna Rain Movies in 2012!!!

2012 is just round the corner and there’s not one…not two…not even just three, but loads and loads of highly anticipated movies lined up for their release. I won’t be talking much about the movies, coz the list itself is going to make the post look the longest one on this blog.

The list starts (as per the release dates) with:

1) ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’

A hero going dark… with some serious action and drama… this installment of Ghost Rider is expected to be a page turner for the hero’s storyline! Well… the trailer speaks almost entirely for the movie.

2) ‘The Hunger Games’

A movie on a reality show, which actually has the capability to change the face of the reality of the lives of contestants itself! You lose the game and you lose your life.

3) ‘American Reunion’

The original cast of the American Pie series comes together for a High-School reunion. And it’s so very obvious that nothings gonna be normal when Jim, Michelle and friends come together.

4) ‘The Avengers’

Well… I’ve already spoken a lot on this one in a post dedicated to this movie! The only hero I’m concerned about in this flick is Iron-Man! Others don’t really matter to me. No offences meant…

5) ‘The Dictator’

Now this is something that I am waiting eagerly for. The trailer itself made me roll out of my chair. Can’t think of what’s gonna happen I’ll actually be watching the movie.

6) ‘Men in Black II’

Yup! The Men in Black are on their way back to the silver screens across the globe again! This time Will Smith is not only on a mission to catch the aliens, but also find his own team mate…’Kay’.

7) ‘Battleship’

Another game that turns into a live action movie. This movie is based on Hasbro’s classic naval combat game. Haven’t played the game yet, but still the trailer itself has managed to build the excitement for the movie.

8) ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’

This is another super hero going dark! Not only is Peter Parker different this time with Andrew Garfield filling in the spot, but the story line is also going to be different from what was seen in Toby Maguire’s version of Spider-Man. The movie has a dark touch to it, kinda like what was seen in Dark Knight.

9) ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

The hero who started the whole ‘going dark’ trend himself might meet his ultimate demise in the third and the final installment of the trilogy. With ‘Bane’ as the villain, who is otherwise known as the ‘Man who broke the Bat’ in the comic series, this might be the last time Bruce Wayne will be the Bat Man!

Well…thats about it. There are many other movies that haven’t been mentioned in the list, coz the list just won’t end that way. Some of the movies that are not mentioned are “Expendables 2”, “Wrath of the Titans”, “Prometheus”, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” etc. So… is there any movie that you are excited about?

Spider-Man 4 errr… Spider-Man 1… Whatever – Updates!!!

OMG! Isn’t that the phrase that comes to your mind on watching this pic??? Well… it sure was in my case!

Spider-Man 4 has been the (and when I say the, I mean THE) highest rated, viewed and commented topic on this blog ever since I wrote them! And so… here is something more for you all to view and comment!

As I’ve already mentioned in  my previous post that the Spider-Man saga is going to be rebooted instead of adding a new installment to the series, there was quite a huge confusion among fans about who is going to be the next Spidey Boy! Well… here it is! The next friendly neighbourhood is gonna be Andrew Garfield and if you ask me, I am all for it. The guy seems quite a good fit for the role. Another news is that the villain for the movie is gonna be Dr. Curt Connors / The Lizard who would be played by Rhys Ifans.  Gwen Stacy’s role would be played by Emma Stone and all the other actors for all the roles have also been changed.

The title for the movie has not been decided as on now. The movie has been planned to be released during the mid i.e. around June/July next year (2012) in 3D! So, this one is going to be or rather should be more realistic and exciting, coz its gonna be a tough job to replace Tobey Maguire with Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man and bring about the same craze among the hardcore fans!

Any thoughts???

Spider Man 4 Shut Down – The Saga Reboots!!!

Yup! Our very own Tobey Maguire has finally decided to quit one of the biggest movie tiles! Not only Tobey, but even the rest of the cast and crew have now been changed! Sam Raimi reportedly ended his participation due to doubt that he could not meet the planned May 2011 release date.

Now, it is being said that the entire story is going to start all over again, which means right from the high school days of Peter Parker! It might also have Venom as an anti hero and not as a villain like in Spider Man 3. According to sources, the new series will be directed by Marc Web. It is also being said that Tobey, after leaving the 4th installment of the multi-million dollar franchise, came into the rescue for the project by recommending Zack Efron to be the next Peter Parker/Spider Man!

The 22 year old High School Musical star didn’t confirm the news, saying that he hasn’t been approached with any offer to play Spider man as on now.

If you ask me, Zack Efron could be a fine choice for the role, but it would be very difficult to replace Tobey with Zack for the super role! What are your thoughts regarding this?

Spiderman 4 – More News

sp4There is a lot of buzz going around about the next Spidey movie! Earlier, many cast were going to be replaced from the major role like Tobbey Meguire to Kirstun Dunst. But now, it is said that all the characters are going to be the same from the earlier movies.

Columbia picture have hired David Lindsay-Abaire, an award winning writer to pen the story of the next installment to the series. He won the best writer award for his play Rabbit Hole. Well, this shows that, the people engaged in the making of Spiderman 4 are working pretty hard to give us fans a big one!

Sony is planning to do the shooting of the 4th and the 5th Spiderman movies back to back. If it is so, then it is going to be an extremely difficult job in there hands and I hope, while doing so i.e. making two sequels back to back, they don’t screw the whole thing up.

1) Lizard (Dr. Curt)
