Movie Mayhem – The Amazing Spider-Man 2

When it was announced that Sony would be revamping (or rebooting) the Spider-Man franchise just a few years after Spider-Man 3 hit theaters, and only a measly ten years after the original broke new ground and all but started the superhero craze (along with X-Men, that is), I was a bit dumbfounded. It was far too soon for that to happen, but being the movie buff that I am, I was going to see the new version the day it came out anyway. Though not necessarily better or worse than the Tobey Maguire version, the Andrew Garfield version (now with the word “Amazing” as part of its title), was different, with a much closer feel to Marvel’s current slate of Avengers Initiative films. Now we have The Amazing Spider-Man 2, a darker, sadder, but no less thrilling adventure that, for my money, is just as good as both the original trilogy and its rebooted predecessor.
