    Summer Premiere: The Amazing Spiderman with @AndrewGarfield and @EmmaJStone


    In my family there is only one person who is seriously obsessed with Spiderman,my brother. As soon as he found out that the new Spiderman was coming out he wanted to go see it.  About a week ago the corresponding video game came out and he just had to have it, so you can imagine just how bad he wanted to see the actual movie.


    I’ll admit I wasn’t as excited as he was to see the movies but I now realize I should have been. This movie is THE BEST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN. Now, I’ve seen a lot of good movies but this one, had a bit of everything; it had humor, romance, and action. There was even some emotional parts. I found myself crying through some of the movie and I had my share of laughs too.

    I must admit, this version is 10 times more entertaining than the past 3 Spiderman movies . While the drama in those 3 movies were extremely intense this movie felt more developed, more modern, and more creative than the others. It wasn’t just super-hero against super-villian drama. One thing I will say is that it was a bit confusing at parts making this movie a bit less kid friendly. But to be honest all the kids really want to see is the swinging around and the action.

    The actors did a great job as well. Andrew Garfeild could not have done a better job with the role of spiderman. The way he showcased his emotions throughout the movie were excellent. He displayed them just as a nerdy high-school boy with a crush would have. As for Emma Stone, she also did an amazing job playing the preppy,nerdy, sophisticated, girl she was in the movie. The pressures put on her in the movie were quite extreme as the girl-friend of Spiderman .But she ,also, could not have done a better job. The characters’ personalities were really thought through with made the movie more believable . As if you could feel the same emotions as the characters did.

    There was just one thing I was really disappointed by. SPOILER ALLERT!! The ending was not what I envisioned. The girl and the boy don’t end up together, which really makes me sad because they were so cute together. Other than that little detail, I LOVED IT! I would even go see it again! I give this movie 5/5 stars.

    Movie Review: Crazy, Stupid, Love

    Yesterday I went to an advance screening of “Crazy, Stupid, Love” (in theaters July 29).  I could just say, go see this movie so you can drool over Ryan Gosling, but that wouldn’t be a very good review, nor would it accurately capture just why this is a film that’s definitely worth your 13 bucks!


    The movie opens with Emily (Julianne Moore) admitting to her straight-laced—and very oblivious—husband Cal (Steve Carell) that she’s cheated on him and wants a divorce.  This sudden split from his high school sweetheart instantly turns Cal’s life upside down.  He starts hanging out at the local bar, where he spends time lamenting to whoever will listen about his depressing situation.  Here he meets the amazingly suave playboy, Jacob (Ryan Gosling), who decides to give this poor soul help rediscovering his manhood and getting back in the dating scene.


    In the meanwhile, Robbie (Jonah Bobo), Cal’s 13-year-old son, is experiencing his first major crush on his babysitter, Jessica (Analeigh Tipton).  Jessica is in love with Cal.  And Jacob eventually finds love, too.


    In theaters Friday, July 29


    “Crazy, Stupid, Love” is an entertaining, feel-good, romantic comedy.  It’s a love triangle (or…pentagon?) with unexpected twists and intersections between the characters’ lives.  The three main subplots coincide smoothly throughout the movie and once they merge (or should I say, collide), you are in for some serious laughs. The movie’s pace is comfortable, allowing you to connect with each of the characters and remain entertained throughout. Some of the characters do pretty outlandish—well…crazy, stupid—things that make you squirm, but that’s part of what makes the movie so fun.


    The cool thing about this movie is that viewers of all ages, from preteens to grandparents, can relate to and enjoy it. Whether you’re stumbling on your first, serious puppy dog crush or you’ve discovered your soulmate, this movie will speak to you. It makes you believe in love, fight for love, and respect love. It shows the dangers of falling into a rut—and the importance of keeping love fresh.


    The actors were well-cast and had good chemistry and the dialogue was natural.  Who was the standout?  I can’t even say.  Each actor in this star-studded cast did a great job.  The film also stars Emma Stone, Marisa Tomei, Beth Littleford, John Carroll Lynch and Kevin Bacon.


    I give it 3.75 of 5 stars
