I went to see the new Spiderman movie here in New York (which, by the way, is like $15 for one movie). When I first saw the trailer for The Amazing Spiderman, I thought it would just be a remake of the original—that is not the case. This 2012 version is completely different.
I had never seen a movie in 3D until this one, so I was interested to see how it would affect the movie. In my opinion, it was a waste. It costs like $20 for a 3D movie here, and I didn’t even notice it was in 3D until one scene where the giant lizard thing fell off a building. So just a tip—if you are going to spend the money to see a 3D movie here, get a child’s ticket for $14.50.
Anyway, I guess it is good that this movie led a different plot because seeing the same exact movie remade probably would not have been very exciting. Spoiler alert! The beginning of this movie shows how Peter Parker came to live with his aunt and uncle—it gives a peek into his life as a child and how he was separated from his parents. Also, his there is no wrestling match, which, if you think about it, changes a lot—no girl to impress with a hot car, no money to be stolen, and a completely different thief that kills Uncle Ben. Mainly, there is not Green Goblin. In this scenario, science goes wrong to turn the doctor into a giant lizard after experimenting with a drug to regenerate his arm.
Anyway, I’m not a movie critic, but I would recommend seeing this movie to make your own opinion of which movie is better. Just maybe wait to see it until you get home and not in 3D to save a couple bucks.
