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.
A true hidden gem.
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.
“Truth, justice, and the American way” no more?
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…
