THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN (ENEMIES UNITE TRAILER)

The-Amazing-Spider-Man-2-Super-Bowl

Before we talk about this trailer (well, actually I am) in detail, go watch the friggin’ trailer. What are you waiting for? I’m gonna spoil all the fun if you keep reading.

Okay now if you’re reading this part either you have watched the trailer or you are just one of those people who likes to ruin parties.

Come on man, just stop reading if you haven’t watch the trailer please it’s for your own good.

Fine, your regrets.

First of all, I really don’t know why the trailer is called enemies unite, or why not they just call it the 4th trailer or something, I really don’t. But heck anyways it doesn’t really matter. This is really exciting.

Some people call this the extended Superbowl trailer which I don’t think it is, because it has something (which I will talk about) that makes this different than the other Amazing Spiderman trailer.

Let’s talk about it from the exact beginning of this trailer.

We start off with Peter Parker’s house with Aunt May blocking Peter from cleaning the laundry because the last time he did it, he made everything blue and red (obvious nod to the original Spiderman 2 here).

Well, I guess it’s pretty funny, but not that original. Plus, it’s another nod about how patriotic Spiderman is because of the red, blue, and white. Well it’s not as obvious as how each ending of the original Spiderman trilogy has Spidey on an American flag pole.

“All right, laundry sheriff.”

Then we got something about, “you know what is it I love about being Spiderman? Everything.” *Lol* it’s a counteract on the original trilogy, where he hates being Spiderman in Spiderman 2. And there is Peter Parker there sitting on top of a building (which, by the way, is real. Andrew Garfield is sitting on top there, no CGI blue screen or anything,  the brit’s got balls)

And then here on out, the small bit of Electro’s origins starts. Max Dillon is a nobody,  and he almost got hit by a flying taxi and saved by Spidey. Spiderman motivates him by saying,

“You’re my eyes and ears out here.”

This is the part where Electr… uh, I mean, Max Dillon overthinks about Spiderman, and how jealous he is because everybody likes Spiderman whereas he has a sad life. In this part, he was talking to Gwen Stacy on an elevator (which I’m guessing is in Oscorp) while watching him in an elevator TV.

Parker then states about how he likes to think that Spiderman gives people hope.

Well, nobody cares about what you LIKE to think, dipshit.

Onto Max posting some news paper posters on his room. Isn’t that familiar? Yes? Ironman 2? Electricity whiplashing guy?

Then when Max was trying to fix a broken cable, he fell off and went into this friggin’ pit of eels, I know right, what the hell. A PIT OF EELS. What kind of corporation needs  A PIT OF EELS for electricity, geez.

Well that was cheesy, but I guess that’s what they’re going for.

Part of the city shuts down (or that’s how the trailer put it together to look like), and Max uses a hoodie to cover himself, and he went to the Time Square to absorb some electricity, I guess. Really weird music here, by the way, but I like it.

“YO SPARKLES.”

Parker puts on the Spidey costume and confronts this guy, and this is the part which I was talking about which makes this different than the other trailers.

Parker forgot his name, but remembers how he is ‘his eyes and ears’.

Max got pissed about how Spidey forgot his name, and became a murderous psychopath.

Then Max shoots some electric bolts to Spidey.

Suddenly it cuts to Parker meeting Harry Osborne played by Dane Dehaan. Some sinister six nods here and there but we’ve seen that before from the previous trailers.

Well, the rest of the trailer is just some dubstep with trailer montage.

Also there is this part where Parker is crying with the Spidey outfit, maybe Gwen is, umm…

You know, umm…

D… de…

Devastated because of her dad’s death, or something.

Well, it was a fun trailer for me. Too much shown by the way.

DAMN ELSA YOU LOOK GOOD

Okay, so yeah, I’m gonna review this movie as you may know from the title. Let me start with how I will review this movie. First of all, I’m not gonna be very fair because I have a weird and strong attraction towards young animated Disney princesses. Yes, you heard it; I don’t know whats the cause of this, maybe because they are just too perfect to be real and I am a desperate man. Well onto the *non spoiler* review

OVERALL REVIEW

The whole movie (I think) is derived from the fairy tale created by Hans Christian Anderson, which is entitled Kai and the Snow Queen. Basically in short (in his version), the Snow Queen is evil and was cursed with these trolls and stuff. But in this Disney princess version, they decided to make a bold exciting tweak to this story.

“What if she was just misunderstood?” And yes, that’s what happened. What I like about how she was misunderstood was we really think that she’s not evil, we’re kind of on her side; but we also notice how she herself think she is acting a bit ‘unpleasant’, in a way, and she has this self-aware look on her face that I’ve noticed. That’s one of the best parts of Disney animation, which they show very amazing expressions on the characters and make them feel real and alive. As the story continues, we feel more and more depth on the world and character that this world is in. Meeting new characters in the middle of the journey; either love interest, comic relief, or potential douchebags. As we go in the journey, we don’t forget about the singing. Ah yes, the singing parts. Such a classic tradition on Disney movies. This movie had pretty solid musics throughout, but not as good as the music in tangled (based on personal taste).

The Disney kiss (Tangled).
The Disney kiss (Tangled).

The romance in this movie is pretty simple to guess; it’s not as good as Tangled’s, but I still bought it. It wouldn’t be a Disney movie without a prince and a princess, am I right? The comedy on this movie is pretty funny, and again based on personal taste. We know that this movie takes place in the kingdom-ish era; we know its not modern, but how the characters are portrayed were very up-to-date with us today, and how they speak is a great appeal to me; makes them way more relatable, and comic, at the same time.
