The Amazing Spider-Man 2—The Viewing

Just finished watching The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and was thoroughly under-whelmed. There were more plot lines than necessary and they added nothing to the film. I understand the final scene is there to set up the Sinister Six but the scene in the prison should have been enough of a teaser. And the sub-plot of Aunt May's night job did nothing to really advance the plot. But without it, she would have been virtually a non-existent, useless character. The whole Richard and Mary Parker plot line was fluff and again, didn't add much to the overall story. And in regards to Electro, a lot of the movie was not focused on the main villain and I just wasn't buying in to it.

But what all these plot lines do is give me the opportunity to create an interesting narrative chart of intersecting plot threads. Sketches will begin tomorrow in the notebook. Well see what comes of it.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Plot Clusterfr@çk

I just read a blog article about the Ten Worst Nerd Film of 2014. On that list was The Amazing Spider-Man 2. One of the comments was the useless complexity of the plot. Or should I say the eight plots. All eight plots were listed and that does sound like too much.

What's in this film? Harry Osborn with Goblinitis, conspiracies involving Peter Parker's parents, a secret underground enclave of supervillain stuff, a different underground enclave of supercomputers, a late-film mourning period, a subplot with Aunt May's night job, Gwen Stacy's frustrated romance, an electrical supervillain, a wicked German doctor with a supervillain tank, and a triple-whammy finale with an honest-to-goodness musical number playing over it. There has been one (1) very good Spider-Man film (that would be Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2). This film may finally prove that we'll never get another.

Never having seen the movie, as the reboot turned me off from the beginning, I completely ignored the second in the series. But with this one paragraph, I knew I needed to view it in order to find out if these eight plots could be coherently plotted in a graph. I'll probably rue this decision.

So I ordered the movie from Netflix. I'll find out for myself if what many of the geek web sites said about the movie.
