I compared the first films of each series when it hit DVD/Blu-Ray, and since Amazing 2 just came out, I figured I’d run at it again. Do a side by side comparison of both Tobey and Andrew to take a look at which second film is better, and what Spider-Man/Peter Parker is better. This will follow a similar format to the first, albeit with some differences, and please beware of potential spoilers.
Ever since Amazing Spider-Man came out I’ve been hearing people making fun of Tobey’s version, claiming that Andrew’s is far better. Is this really true though? Today I rewatched both Tobey’s first film and Andrew’s version and am going into an in-depth comparison. Looking into which origin film really is better. Be mindful of spoilers.
Visually stunning precursor to the Lord of the Rings.
Ultimate Spiderman – volume 1
Yeah. Volume 1 and all the tie ins I could find. Well, actually borrow which is nearly all of Peter Parker’s Ultimate glory (save appearances in other comics). Back when I was living in Cali I started to read them, but never got too far before I moved back to MN and lost my connection to it. With the recent Spider-Men crossover though, I decided to try and track down the comics here to try again – and I found it.
Apologies if this isn’t one of my smoother pieces because I’m such an amazing writer (sarcasm there), but I am admittedly writing this full out review off and on as I read through. Also, there may be spoilers, but I’ll try to at least avoid most major things – excluding the heavily reported on event of 2011. Added warning, expect some recent movie comparrison!
Caught the midnight release, and instead of doing a review and possibly ruining the plot for you, I figured I’d do a comparison to the last set of Spider-Man movies. Though I’ll try to avoid them (save those that should only be a spoiler if you’ve NEVER heard of Spider-Man), there may be a few spoilers in here.
So after the midnight showing of The Hunger Games, I was walking through a clearly energetic crowd as I made way to the exit. General consensus and the vibe I got was that people were pleased, even so I often picked up people making comments about differences from the book that the movie just didn’t get right, or did not get at all. Now I know everything doesn’t relate to the big screen – especially with a book written in first person – but even so, I couldn’t help but agree. Add in that I literally just finished the book a few days ago, I figured I would do a comparison. If you haven’t read the book or seen the movie, expect some spoilers…
