“Dude, don’t cry; you’re wearing mascara. You don’t want to look like yet another Spider-Man villain after all these fuckers,” I told myself as Spider-Man 2 nears its end.
If you haven’t seen The Amazing Spider-Man 2, go watch it. The plot and the whole sci-fi look and feel of the film will get you hooked. For those who can’t control their tear ducts, bringing a box of tissue is highly recommended.
Spider-Man was still hilarious when dealing with small-time villains, a characteristic that the Spider-Man in the past trilogy didn’t have. And Electro–good godzilla–the poor man’s story was awesome. Jamie Foxx’s acting was brilliant.
There are some specific cool scenes that I’d like to talk about but I don’t want to spoil others who haven’t seen the movie yet. I’ll give you this hint: cool Spider-Man web shot!
It’s also worth-mentioning that the movie is filled with ridiculously beautiful people. Spider-Man himself, Gwen Stacy, and now Harry Osborn. His blue eyes, lips, adam’s apple, and nerdy haircut… Seriously, are we ever going to get an ugly Green Goblin actor? First James Franco and now this Dane DeHaan? (We’re not counting Green Goblin’s father in the first trilogy for obvious reasons, but if you find him attractive, uhm okay?)
“Judging your taste in men now, you must have a thing for goblins,” Angus noted.
“Don’t let the goblins in Harry Potter’s world hear you,” I replied. “I don’t want them to get the wrong idea.”
And yes, Griphook, no matter how attracted I am to goblins, I’m sorry but I’m only interested in Gringotts’ treasures and not in you.
Fangirling aside, the actual verdict is: the movie has good visual. It’s easy to understand everything just by relying what you see on the screen. Unfortunately, the script is horrible. Sure, there are parts that are actually good, but the number of awful lines in it definitely outnumber the good ones. The worst part? Gwen’s cliche graduation script that she even said she’ll deliver again just for Peter (The horror!).
