Movie Review – The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Rise of Electro
Even though I knew a character died in the comic books, the movie made me care for this person and I was almost shocked when they did die. Sorry, can’t say who as I don’t want to spoil it.
And I can’t help comparing it to the other movies. For example, has anyone noticed how the hairstyles of Spider-man and Harry Osborn have switched?

Spiderman Green Goblin
This movie had an interesting twist on why Harry Osborn/ Green Goblin hates Spider-man, despite him being his ex-friend, Peter Parker. One piece of logic was missing, I thought. If Harry was ill and the Hobgoblin suit could ‘cure’ him, then why didn’t he use that in the first place?
I thought the acting was decent and many of the lines in the movie (esp. Spiderman) were interesting. The banter between Peter Parker and Gwen was funny especially when she was waiting for her college interview.
Overall, it was a decent Spiderman movie fulfilling many of the expectations of this series.
My rating 4/5
If you are a Spider-man fan, you’ll have a bit of a wait for the next movie. It was originally to be released on June 10, 2016 but has now been pushed to sometime in 2018.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
