The Amazing Spiderman

How is it different from others in the Spiderman franchise?

Now the basic difference that the trailers show to us is the fact that the movie starts from the very beginning of the Peter Parker story. We are first shown how Peter Parker was left to be with his aunt and uncle in the first place. It shows that Peter’s parents left him to be with them willingly, and for reasons that will only be unraveled in the movie itself. The most glaring change of course is the fact that the central role of Peter Parker and Spiderman is played by the newly inducted Andrew Garfield. The character of heroine is also changed, as it is now being played by the talented and strikingly beautiful Emma Stone.

The plot

The plot for the flick is more or less building upon the same lines as the previous three. However, Columbia is assertive of the fact that this is not a sequel to the three editions before. They say it is just a separate and a more insightful look into the character that is spider man. Even in this movie, Peter Parker is portrayed as a social misfit, aspiring for the attention of the prettiest girl in his class but never quite managing it. The story continues when the father of that girl asks him what his life is all about and he replies that ‘nothing much really’. That dialogue beautifully sums up the young Peter Parkers life pre-Spiderman.

The accident that changes the life of Peter Parker forever happens again at Emma Stone’s laboratory when Peter goes over there to meet her. Being his blundering-self, he fumbles into a room where a spider bites him while he is intrigued by the equipment over there. Peter does not have the slightest clue that the spider that has bit him is not a normal spider, but he starts to notice different biological changes in his life.

He first notices that his vision has improved over night, and is confused when he pulls out a web from the place that the spider had struck him. His evolution continues as he shows extra ordinary reflexes and moves he was previously incapable of doing. He starts to scale walls and run through abandoned alley ways, testing out his new skills. The trailer continues with a sound asking Peter if he really had any idea what he was. The sound is most likely to belong to Uncle Ben but again, we can’t be sure. What we can be sure is the fact that the upcoming movie will help us understand the character of Spider Man much better than we did before.

The Dark Knight Rises

Arkham city’s caped savior is back! The Dark Knight franchise is back with its latest and final installment, The Dark Knight Rises. With the plot revolving around Batman, the creators have added a touch of mystique to the villain in the official trailers. The Dark Knight Rises is different from its prequel because it encompasses a villain that is not the joker that was played to such perfection by Heath Ledger.

This time the villain trying to tear apart Arkham City is none other than Bane. Yes the same Bane who was originally created in DC Comics way back in January 1993. This shows that the Dark Knight Rises is slowly bringing with itself, a sense of continued class that is reminiscent in all Batman movies.

The Christopher Nolan flick will have the same great qualities that brought so much acclaim to The Dark Knight. Most importantly, with the character of Batman unchanged, the film carries on from where it left, portraying Batman as a vigilante and not a hero. This adds to the aura around the character, at the same time building audience interest by enticing them with the same Christian Bale driven drama that was evident in both The Batman begins in 2005 and also in The Dark Knight in 2008.

Building on to where the story is at the moment, in the concluding shots of The Dark Knight, it is seen that with a tussle with the District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman is weighed down with the decision of killing him or saving himself. With Dent so hell bent that everyone including Batman was to blame for the jokers killing of his fiancé (who also is the love of Batman’s life), he goes on a rampage eventually ending up taking hostage the family of honest commissioner to entice him and to make him repent for his failure.

However, in true batman fashion, the Dark Knight arrives at the scene and is now confronting Harvey Dent, trying very hard to get him to see the light. Harvey accuses batman of killing his fiancé, even though in the events that led to her death, batman had chosen to save Dent. However, a fist fight breaks out between the two and Batman has to, reluctantly, put Dent down. However, so that Dent’s reputation remains intact, Batman then goes on ask the commissioner to blame him for all of Dents crimes, becoming the vigilante once again.

After a short time, he starts to fall for Ariel, a rebellious girl who was at the tie dating Chuck Cranston and is also the daughter to Reverend Shaw Moore who is very overprotective father and also one of the authoritative figures of the town.

After getting an insult from Chuck, the boyfriend to Ariel, Ren finds himself in a chicken game which involves tractors and in spite the fact that he has no knowledge of driving tractors, he wins the game. Shaw does not trust Ren and tells Ariel to stay away from him. Ren together with his classmates want to get rid of the law especially due to the fact that the senior prom is just about to take place.

Ren presents himself before the City Council and reads to them many Bible Verses that allege that in the olden times [people danced to celebrate, exercise or rejoice. Despite the fact that this moves Rev. Moore and her makes attempts to make them get rid of the law, he is voted against by the council. Shaw’s wife also supports the movement and tries to explain to Shaw that he cannot be a father to everyone and that he is hardly being fatherly to Ariel. She also explains that the problem is not in the dancing and music. Shaw gets a change of heart in a short time after he sees a number of the town’s folk burning books that they held the opinion were dangerous to the young ones. Getting to the realization that this situation has gone too far, Shaw stops them from burning the books.

On Sunday, Rev. Moore makes a request to his congregation to pray for the students in High School organizing the prom which has been set up outside the town in a grain mill. Shaw and his wife’s presence are noted outside for the first time dancing in several years.
