These two, y’all. Even if it meant that Emma and I couldn’t get married, I would love to just hang out with these two always. They are so prime and so good together.
The Amazing Spider-Man was pretty awesome, and by pretty awesome I mean totally* awesome. Andrew Garfield was the perfect Peter Parker, down to even the smallest, most subtle aspects. I was watching the Peter Parker in my head, the one I’ve always idolized and wanted to be, on screen in front of me. And he got to kiss Emma Stone. Dude lived out my dream, forreal. But real talk– Peter was awesome, Spidey was amazing (saucy, speedy, and kinda scrawny because even with the new muscles he’s still a nerdy teenage boy), and his web shooters were really nifty. Emma was Gwen Stacy and really brought Gwen to life in a way that she deserved. Really surprisingly wonderful… though, damn, those legs were a little distracting.
I have to get up in 3 hours so I’m not going to waste everyone’s time breaking it down and praising every character and scene (though my mega-crush Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben deserves a shout out… thanks for making his death even more painful than usual, buddy) but damn, so good. Definitely going to see it again. Maybe even in IMAX if I can track it down. I also recommend seeing it for at least the first time in 3D. We all know that I’m not the hugest fan of the format (read: my default emotion is to hate it), but Spidey fits it really well, and it adds to the movie without getting cheesy.
Also Stan Lee’s cameo in this may be my favorite one of his yet.
And now I sleep.
*Totally awesome, except for the part where Peter internet searched using Bing. Really, you guys? Quit trying to make Bing happen.
