Review: The Amazing Spiderman

Peter Parker finds a clue that might help him understand why his parents disappeared when he was young. His path puts him on a collision course with Dr. Curt Connors, his father’s former partner.

I walked into this movie expecting to be blown away, I really liked Andrew Garfield playing as Spiderman and I avoided watching any trailers because I didn’t want to ruin the story or surprises. I just got annoyed with Tobey Maguire after the second one, the guy just felt damn annoying and he was a prick. This story started out different, not exactly 100% like the story and both Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy are cooler characters and smarter, I like how we saw the nerdier side of Peter Parker, and Emma Stone turned out to be a really good fit for Gwen Stacy. Martin Sheen & Sally Fields as Uncle Ben and Aunt May couldn’t have been a better pic, they were veteran actors with a lot to give and this time they are a larger role to play which I liked. It told a good story and I loved Andrew Garfield as Spiderman because he even had a damn good sense of humor and looked like he had fun playing Spiderman too but there was just one thing that was missing to this movie. The bad guy just wasn’t bad enough, or the build up between them just wasn’t what I was expecting, and Oscorp felt to be a side note. I liked the movie, but I wanted to love it, I just wanted more out of it.

Minimalist Marvel Posters

I always enjoy how people can interpret the symbols of Comic Characters and this artist took that to another level with a lot of Marvel Characters. Very cool work and Galactus being one of the more imposing looking posters, I would mind having this up on a wall in a certain patern, it would look cool.

Marko Djurdjevic Comic Art

Marko Djurdjevic is the founder of SIXMOREVODKA concept art studio. He has done some awesome redesigns for Spider-Man and The Fantastic Four in the past, but here’s a collection with a lot of his other work, which is all very cool stuff. His stuff has this old school classic Alex Ross kind of feel to it.

Marko is one of those artists that really know how to bring out the real look of the characters. I love what he did with the spiderman suit it looks like a new age spiderman with the fantastic four. Sometimes I prefer the new modern looking comics but these realistic looking designs are amazing as well, I can never get tired of comics.

Review: Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark

There has been a lot of noise about this musical online so I interested to see it if I had the chance. I’m a very big fan of musicals and shows, but its rare that I have a chance to be in New York to see them at the time of their showing, and some run for yours but I missed them. This time around I had the chance to go see the controversial Spider-Men Turn Off The Dark. It became one of the most expensive productions in Broadway history at the cost of 65 Million, and since the beginning of the show it has been plagued with issues from malfunctioning stunts, to injuries, and cast leaving with new ones being added.

After hearing so much about it I really wanted to see it, it couldn’t have been as bad as many people were saying and honestly it wasn’t. As a huge comic fan I was very excited to see what they were planning on doing. It was an exciting musical to watch and it was more like a show from Las Vegas with all the acrobatics and machinery involved then it is a Broadway musical. But something that I found strange is that they took a very strange approach to the story and modified about 40% of it which I didn’t care for too much. The story was decent and the action around the theater was a lot of fun but you can imagine that one of these guys can fall on the crowd, they get really close. The slow scenes were a bit annoying but the bad guy playing the Green Goblin was very funny and was the best actor in the whole musical. It has more action then the usual musical and kids really seem to love the show but its not for everyone, and comic fans love Spidey but the show just isn’t a fit for fans.

Spiderman 1978 Japan

Who said the Japanese didn’t like Spiderman, they turned him into a hybrid of Bruce Wayne with all the gadgets and a Japanese Mecha Robo with his own giant robot to be called upon when needed. The best part of the Japanese is that they integrate robots into anything, gotta love the theme song.

The UnBoxing

Came back today to find two boxes in my room, I knew I was getting something from my Aramex box. The best part are that these items slowly trickle in and its fun opening them up even though it isn’t a complete surprise. This time it turns out one of these boxes was delivered to the wrong person even though my name was written clearly on it.

  • Sigma EX 10-20mm Wide Angle Lens
  • Grendaizer Statue
  • Spiderman Symbiote Bust
