I’m a firm believer in the idea that super-heroes teach you things, and it’s usually a pretty simple lesson. Superman teaches you to be nice and to be a good person, because that’s the way you make things better for everyone. Batman teaches you that if you’re determined enough, and if you try your hardest, one man can change the world. Those are great guidelines, not just for storytelling, but for life.
But Spider-Man’s lesson is a little less sugar-coated, and a little more human.
Spider-Man teaches you that you’re going to screw up. It’s going to happen, and it’s going to be bad. You’re going to make bad decisions and it’s going to feel like they’re going to crush you. It’s going to hurt.
But Spider-Man also teaches you that the only way to get through it is that you never, ever quit. It’s not easy, but even if it seems impossible, you can beat anything that stands in your way. You can become the person you want to be.
And that’s why he’s the best.
The Room- the best of the best.
THE ROOM ELIMINATES CRIME IN AMERICA
In just over 24 hours, Warner Bros gave us the news of who’s playing Wonder Woman, Sony gave us our first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and FOX announced the title and release date of their next X-Men Film.
Your move Marvel…
unrated-g said: I’m having the same feeling… trying to maintain cautious optimism but that looked like a montage of like three movies happening…
Yup, totally understand. It looks good, I like the costume and ideas they have in there (Harry as the Goblin first strikes me as a little odd but we’ll see how they work that in) and Electro looks amazing, that final section to the trailer was very cool.
Webb must be doing something right for Sony to go ‘Yes, use all 3’ and he must be constantly thinking of what Spider-Man 3 did wrong and to not fall into those traps. I’m nervous but optimistic. Thought I’d hate the first one but ended up loving it so I’m waiting for it to surprise me again.
Amazing Spider-Man 2 looks good but there is so much going on I’m a little nervous about it. Didn’t they learn anything from Spider-Man 3?
So getting snow spray on my script and chasing the person who did it outside of the building, onto the gravel, tripping over, bruising my knee and ripping a huge hole in my jeans was probably not the highlight of my day.
Of course one of the few films with a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes is one I’ve come to distaste and absolutely hate.
