(500) Days of Spidey

So I just saw this.

I loved it. Garfield was perfect.

You guys, I finally get Emma Stone.

It's only a week old, we should still be talking about it and how much better it is than all the Raimi movies and how dreamy Gwen Stacy is.

Also, I am a huge fan of Greg Weisman's The Spectacular Spider-Man, so we should talk about that too and how Flash is the best and how much we miss it.

    So I'm right in thinking that
    Aunt May knows he's Spider-Man by the end of the movie, right? Because I feel that was an awesome way to go. I love when Aunt May knows.

    can someone explain to me why a guy who generally makes salient points about film needs to adopt the hulk persona and then be really bad at it except for posting in caps which makes his articles hard to read?

    My only two real criticisms:
    I vastly preferred SpecSpidey George Stacy and how he found out Pete was Spidey. Just taking off a mask isn't as cool as figuring it out. And he was just more of a jerk than I am used to. Still, his death hit harder than Ben's for me.

    The other thing is that I really disliked what they did with Conners. I prefer when he's the nicest guy and has a wife and kid and is terrified and ashamed of the Lizard.

    That said, I've long been one to say that the SpecSpidey versions of the characters are superior to any other, but this movie's Gwen was definitely better than the show's. Then again, I never really liked the show's Gwen, in contrast to the majority opinion. I was rooting for Liz.

    And as someone who was an active supporter in the Twitter campaign for Donald Glover to play Peter (though I still think he would've done a good job), I think Garfield was flawless.

    Oh, that scene in the end when Pete walks in covered in lizard marks sealed it for me. She just had this look of "You wonderful, foolish little bastard."

    Its the more real Mr. Plinkett guy and friends talking about the movie. I kinda just watch his Half in the Bag movie reviews to pass time but this one is pretty bad. Also if you haven't seen HinB then let tell you right now that its a series of reviews that have a back story so...



    Also boourns on new movie Spidey costume!

    I believe he used to do it in actual hulk-speak, or I've at least read something of his which was. But again, impossible to read. I'd bet it's because he already had the character and the twitter followers etc, and also it seems like he is intent on staying anonymous.

    I kinda got that sense too.

    And I am maybe really dense here, but I wasn't entirely sure what was going on with that last line with Gwen re: their relationship. I think I know what the actual status is, but the line was too fast or too cryptic for me and I am dumb.

    You mean "Promises you can't keep are the best kind?" He's saying he knows he made a promise, but she's too important to him to keep that promise, even if it means she'll be at risk for being thrown off of a bridge and killed one day by a dude in a circus outfit.

    like, I realize the full plinket reviews take a long time, but why can't he just do shorter videos without the persona for new releases?

    Because they're not interested in doing traditional reviews?

    Hell, I enjoy watching those guys, but it has very little to do with whatever they're reviewing

    I kinda thought that, but the problem is
    following that train of logic, it is pretty selfish. Why not just have the movie point out that George got to have her and her brothers and mom while doing a similar job (the parallels were already established!) and that maybe people should trust her because she had already proven to be very capable and accepting of risk?

    Well, it's selfish of both of them--selfish of her to expect that Peter wouldn't listen to the man that saved his life, and selfish of Peter to think he is above that risk he's putting her in. You're absolutely right. Which is what makes what comes next such a gut punch, because they were asking for trouble--and Pete knows it.

    No he would not have. Donglover is a great actor but his style and timing do not work for spider-man. I also don't think the man can do drama. He'd a comedic genius and he can get some heartfelt emotions going but I will never believe he can believably portray angst or anger in a way that isn't hilarious.

    Doesn't really have to worry about a full time job.

    He can skip classes to save the city but brings fun stories about still having to pass classes.

    Can be young and naive to life and to the other older supers.

    I'm kind of upset about this movie. they had spider-man, and it was good, then some suits ruined it while still making a bundle and that was fine because they can always reboot it.

    Usually comedy actors can do drama really well though, as the old saying goes they're two sides of the same coin. I mean Jim Carey did well in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind plus Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell surprised me both with Reign Over Me and Stranger Than Fiction respectively.

    Man, I don't know how anyone can see Zombieland and not get Emma Stone.

    Anyhow, I thought this was pretty good. The cast was superb, but I felt like the script was lacking.
    The whole get powers - uncle dies - be a hero cause-and-effect seemed weirdly structured, like it was at some point we don't really see between when he's searching for his uncle's killer and when the Lizard shows up that he starts being a hero.

    Spidey's snark was greatly appreciated, though.
