***SPOILER REVIEW AHEAD*****
After a nice month-long vacation, FORCED PERSPECTIVE is back with a BANG!
Continuing my series of watching famous geek movies I have never watched before, we now look at the Amazing Spider-Man. Amazing Spider-Man was a reboot Sony did to renew the franchise. Was it any good? We shall see. Once again, I start with snarky comments, and then go to final thoughts that are super spoilerish.
To start off the then-new decade in 1990, Marvel launched six new titles, dubbing them the “Heroes for the 90’s”. These titles were well set to catch the wave of the speculator boom of the 1990s. But were they a success? On the 25th anniversary of the last of the six to get published, we are looking back at these six titles and see how well they did: Robocop, Namor the Submariner, Ghost Rider, Guardians of the Galaxy, The New Warriors, and Spider-man.
All roads lead to TERMINUS…or, in this case, the end of FORCED PERSPECTIVE’s Spider-Man retrospective!
What do you get when you mix jive dancing, excessive crying, dumb scientists, Star Wars prequel bashing, and some TOE-BEE? Why, you get FORCED PERSPECTIVE, EPISODE 46 of course!
Since Superman: The Movie hit movie screens in 1978, essentially creating the modern superhero movie, DC characters have appeared on screen in 21 films. In these 21 films, we’ve had 6 Superman movies, 2 Superman spinoffs (Supergirl, Steel), 7 Batman movies, 1 Batman spinoff (Catwoman), 1 Watchmen movie and 4 movies based on Swamp Thing, Jonah Hex and Green Lantern. Now, Superman and Superman II are classics, as is Tim Burton’s Batman (and Batman Returns which I have soft spot for.) The Dark Knight Trilogy is arguably the greatest comic book series of all time. Watchmen and Man of Steel are debatable films, as a lot of comic book fans are divided on these. But the rest of DC’s filmography? Absolute garbage. More
