2014 Summer Movie Wrap-Up!

-380ed957-36d7-4dec-bada-2b76d6b3523cIt’s now Labor Day, which can only mean one thing: summer, and the movies that came with it, are over. This summer movie season saw a huge amount of comic book and other geek friendly movies hit our screens, some good (Guardians of the Galaxy) and some bad (Amazing Spider-Man 2).

2014 Summer Movie Preview!

Yes, the summertime is almost here, and you know what that means……no, not going outside and going to the beach, summer movies! Just like summer movie seasons past, the slate of summer 2014 blockbusters is full of superheroes, aliens, and big explosions. However, there is a lack of DC being represented…

Amazing Spider-Man 2 now rests in my brain as a paradox. I am equally anxious for it and dreading it, mainly due to some changes that may or may not have been made regarding the Green Goblin’s lineage. My spidey sense is also tingling about the news that Sony has plans for Venom and Sinister Six spin off, which means this may end up being the Iron Man 2 of the rebooted series.

Despite this, I am looking forward to seeing Spidey on the big screen again. Andrew Garfield continues to strengthen my belief that he’s a far superior webslinger to Tobey Maguire, Emma Stone is adorable as always, and Electro, a villain I’ve been waiting to see since the credits rolled on Sam Raimi’s first film back in 2002, is finally making his big screen debut. I may not like it after watching it, but I’m still excited for Amazing Spider-Man 2.
