The Amazing Spider-Man Movie Review: Another Webbed Wonder?

by at . Comments

Marc Webb had a tough task bringing Spider-Man back after such a short break. Composing this The Amazing Spider-Man review is tricky given that fact. But, given serious thought, it is not quite as difficult knowing how much heart and soul the filmmaker poured into making his first big budget film. Although there is not much that is terribly different than Sam Raimi’s first go around in the Spider-Man world, Webb’s version exceeds Raimi’s on many levels.

Hi, I am in Los Angeles California and I saw a really inetiestrng spider that I had never seen before while on my way to class. I would have taken a picture, but I forgot my camera this morning. It was medium size maybe like a nickel and was very hairy (the kind of fuzzy that reminded me of a tarantula). It was grey with a pretty big bright orange Abdomen (which also seemed to have brownish edges upon close examination).It had very distinctive big fuzzy mouth that was either the Palps or the chelicera. The back and medium legs I believe were shorter than the front which were pretty broad. Normally I am terrified of spiders, but the reason why I was so interested and stopped was because as I stopped and looked at it, it suddenly lifted it's head to look at me! And I was like, what!?!The head moved! I ushered it out of the street and watched it squeeze under a light, instead of crawling up something so I assume it doesn't make make big webs in the air like other spiders but instead is a burrower or trap spider. As it was fitting into the crevice it's body was vertical, but it bent it's head forward (which kind of has a dome shape on top) into the crevice first then moved in. It was actually kind of cute, but I am sincerely hoping that whatever I got out of the street wasn't a harmful spider and now I have freed it onto the world. I know I wrote a lot and it might still be pretty vague without a picture, but I hope you can tell me what it was?
