The Amazing Spider-Man Review…2

SPIDER-MAN 2 REVIEW

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is one of the most anticipated movies of the year and last night, this lucky girl got to watch it on a big-ass IMAX screen.

Spider-Whats-it? You’ve been living under a rock? Oh, lemme give you a quick summary.GWSPIDER
Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) is Spider-man, a masked hero that uses his new abilities to save the city from villains. He lives with his Aunt May who is his only living family. He has a girlfriend, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), who knows his identity and understands the sacrifice that comes along with being a vigilante. She lost her father in the last movie during the climactic villain fight scene. Her father was the police chief and a big deal because her father put the kibosh on Gwen dating Peter because he knew that he was Spider-man (Spider-man is really bad at keeping his identity a secret).
Peter Parker’s life is just as busy as Spider-Man’s because other than normal post-high school living, he spends his time trying to unravel what caused his parent’s deaths. In the last film it was revealed that his father worked at Oscorp and developed some genetic tech that caused the transformation of Peter into Spider-Man. His father had a formula that would have taken the research to the next level and it cost him and his wife their lives.

OSbornIn this installment of the Spider-man story, we meet new and exciting villains as well as important people in Peter Parker’s life. Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) comes into play as Peter’s friend and perhaps Spider-man’s next villain? *Cough Green Goblin Cough* (Not a spoiler, it says it right on IMDB).

If you have watched the trailer you must have seen the main villain of the movie Electro (Jamie Foxx). Jamie Foxx plays an insecure / delusional electrical engineer named Max Dillon. He suffers an accident and his body is negatively altered causing him to be reborn as the Super-villain Electro.

 

Will Peter Parker be able to juggle a normal life, a girlfriend, researching his parent’s work, AND his Spider-Man duties? Go to theatres this weekend to find out! Click the trailer to get pumped, then come back and click the jump to see what I thought of the latest from the Amazing Spider-Man….2.

Gangster Squad

The Story

I am a huge Noir / 40s gangster / Crime Action Drama fan. This story takes place in 1940s Los Angeles at a time when the city is falling into the hands of Mickey Cohen; a notorious crime boss. The police chief realizes that Cohen has too strong a hold within the proper channels and recruits a squad of cops who have what it takes to play on Cohen’s level to save their city from corruption. The story in itself is your typical cops and gangster story, but the way it’s done and the distinct plot points make this movie memorable.

As I have already seen this movie and do solemnly swear not to spoil any major plot points you may click to read what to expect from this movie. I have also posted the trailer after the jump.
