So when we are first introduced to Peter's high school life, they are using those infernal hollywood lockers that don't actually have functioning locks, because the combination locks on the front are already locked before being closed so they are not holding the door shut at all. Sorry, just one of my pet peeves. And now reason number one I like Gwen Stacy, she's the smart girl who sits at the back. Now because this is an update of Spiderman Peter Parker has many hipster tendencies, but I'm willing to look past that because his personality is appealing enough to make up for it. And that article "Splice of Life" where he reads about his parents and Dr. Connors? Yeah I think the writers must have been reading my blog when they came up with that.
Onto our villain of the film, and one of my favourite in Spiderman's world, The Lizard, AKA Dr. Curtis Connors. I've liked him since I was a kid because a) he was never really evil, just couldn't control his reptile nature, helping Spiderman when human and b) he's a giant lizard human hybrid! In this movie he is played by the man who played Captain Hook in the SyFy channel Neverland miniseries. It seems he plays a lot of dismembered/handicapable people.

Gwen Stacey, you have just made me love you. You prove that pretty, awkward, geeky girls do actually have a chance at getting guys, I feel less desperate now. Not only that, but you are way more useful than MJ considering the hero wouldn't have been able to succeed without something you make. Also you use the most efficient way to get your dad off of your back, cramps. Just mention that word and dads get weirded out, leaving you alone.

My last two observations are this: Stan Lee has the best cameo thus far and the tubes of serum look like they were taken right out of the Resident Evil movies. Overall I loved the film, I was able to look past the fact that it wasn't 100% true to the comics because you do have to make changes for film, after all his origin story does take place in the 60s. It did a great job of making Spiderman relevant in 2012, I just hope this run lasts long enough to bring in the Black Cat... and have me play her... ANYWAYS go see the film and tell me what you thought. Did your experience differ?
