Amazing Spiderman

 

Remake of the Spiderman movie. I liked the first one better, but this had it’s positive moments. The awkwardness of the scene where Peter Parker finally get’s enough courage to ask the girl out is classic. Her role in helping him discover himself and in helping him fight the bad guy is very positive. Peter’s search to know his dad and understand his “calling” in life (gifts, talents, ways of contributing to the good of society) are important themes for every human being.

 

 

 

The graphics are amazing, but I never get it when the hero gets injured and yet has super-human strength and agility when a few seconds before he can barely walk. I guess I should just see it as our ability to overcome obstacles when we are motivated enough…

 

Anyway, it was definitely a fun movie, and the lead actor (Andrew Garfield) and actress (Emma Stone) do a great job.
