When I heard about the new Spider-man movie, I was all about it! I loved the first one, and Spider-man 2 hold the only record of me going to a movie on opening night and then going again the next day. I love that movie. Let's just not talk about 3 and Tobey Maguire trying to be bad emo-Venom with the dancing scene that gave me the worst awkward tingles of my life, it's just better to pretend that movie didn't happen. However, when The Amazing Spider-man came out I really didn't care that it's pretty soon for a remake, I was just excited and naturally Jacob was happy to actually go to a movie for date night.
12 Months of Dates/Let's Go on a Date for July. We switched up June and July because there were much better movie released in July. And shout out again to the brilliant Shannon Brown for this idea- now that we're half-way through the year we have really grown to love this gift and idea even more! It's been a great first half of the year!
It was opening weekend, so we arrived early. Instantly we noticed that we were freezing in the theater. Luckily we were at a mall, and we marched to some stores and bought sweaters. July is a fantastic time to buy sweaters- 110 degrees= hello crazy clearance! Jacob also made a pit stop to grab this:
We aren't big candy people, but there is just something to bringing candy into a theater that ensnares us.
The movie verdict: I really liked it, Jacob thought it was a little cheesy, and predictable. I'm a fan of movies with plot, and I liked that even though this was predictable, there was so much back story and character development. I also loved the casting on this one, everyone was fantastic! I can't help that characterization wins my heart, that aspect of my life as an English teacher will always remain.
Did anyone else go see it already? If so do you share my feelings or Jacob's?
And in case you go to see it and miss who the Second Assistant "B" Camera guy is, don't worry, we have your back!
