The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Action 2014)

You know I was quite surprised, but this movie was actually pretty darn enjoyable. This newish Peter Parker, played by Andrew Garfield, is quite eccentric and entertaining to boot.

Emma Stone was OK, but she seemed to have way too much makeup on in all of her scenes. One thing that was well done was the choice of music and songs. I'll be researching the OST for this one. Even though it was predominately an action flick, the movie did have a more romantic feel compared with the Toby Maguire Spiderman series. I dunno if that added to the bonus points I'm giving it, but the director handled those relationship scenes very well.

The movie wasn't perfect though. The whole ending with Rhino was a pointless afterthought and the actor, Dane DeHaan, who played the Green Goblin looked too much like Eddie Furlong and was overacting in a lot of his scenes.

I liked it though. The plot moved along quickly and the music was wonderfully placed.
Rating - B
