I am going to miss Bob and the kitties while I'm away. He's going to miss me too. I love you, Bob.
On Wednesday, seeing a movie sounded like a good thing to do. I went to an afternoon showing of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." The movie was very good, but extremely over the top in regards to Jamie Foxx's character, Electro. The heroes, villians and fight scenes become more and more preposterous. (Who can develop the baddest bad guy and chew up, i.e., destroy, the most scenery in movie?) This movie comes close to winning the prize on that front with the big finale between Spider-Man, Electro and The Green Goblin (Harry Osborn).
In flashbacks, we learn about Richard Parker (Peter Parker's dad), what his dad was working on, and what happened when he and his wife disappeared. Oscorp plays a big role in this film. We also learn Harry Osborn's (Peter Parker's childhood friend) backstory.
This movie contains many characters and story arcs from the Marvel Spider-Man cartoon universe. This movie is tying together threads from the previous movie and setting the storyline for the next three movies. The stars come out for this movie: Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), Sally Field (Peter Parker's Aunt May), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker's girlfriend), Jamie Foxx (Max Dillon/Electro), Cole DeHaan (Harry Osborn/Green Goblin), and Paul Giamatti (Aleksei Sytsevich/Rhino). I found the director's name to be quite apropos and humorous: Marc Webb. Running time is almost 2-1/2 hours. I rate it 3.5 stars out of 5.
And now for something entirely different:
