adamantium1337 asked:

What do you think about the inclusion of so many villains for Amazing Spider-Man 2? Especially after Spider-Man 3..

A

I think we’re all concerned…

Q

mattoxicitymoved asked:

I completely agree with your assessment of The Amazing Spider-Man. What do you think of Marc Webb, as a director? I mean, he made (500) Days of Summer, and then went on to do The Okay but Not Amazing Spider-Man. Thoughts?

A

A lot of the nervous/cute angsty interactions are in both. It’s kind of hard to gauge when I’ve only seen two films and his third is in a the same universe… I can safely say he’s not terrible. I’ll be interested to see what he does after Spider-Man.

Q

itdoesntscatterquiteright asked:

What did you think of Amazing Spiderman as compared to the Raimi version?

A

I like both for different reasons, but structurally I felt Amazing Spiderman was pretty lazy. If you look at the beats, it mirror’s Raimi’s Spiderman a little too closely as far as events go, with characters substituted for others. There’s also a lot more fat on the Webb version. Just get to the spiderbite. Kill Uncle Ben. If you’re going to retread, do it quickly but effectively, rather than meander about and then give us a montage with Coldplay.

Performance-wise Webb’s version is much stronger (well, they’re two very different styles and upon re-watch, the campiness really pops harder). I think the world feels a bit fuller, although I’m worried it will be too full by the time 2 is over. We’ll see…

The main take away here is that I saw Raimi’s first and since Amazing didn’t give us the “untold story” like it promised, but rather a familiar origin story with a different cast and tone, I dock it some points.

I thought it was good, but not stellar.

Ralph, what if the gamers don’t like me?

I just LOVE the animation here. The part with just their hands looks real. And I love the way Gothel’s fingers go from motherly gentle touch to creepy and evil. Beautiful

#I really apprecciate this gif#because when you’re in an abusive relationship often nothing seems wrong until you try to stand up for yourself#that loving pat tranforms into a claw when she defends herself#but really it was a claw all along(via)

Tangled actually did a better job capturing an emotionally abusive relationship than most other things I’ve seen. And I don’t just mean when Gothel kidnapped her and lied to her about who she was. It was everything. She kept Rapunzel with her by cutting people out of her life and destroying her self-esteem. She puts her down and doesn’t allow her to feel confident at all. Recall when Rapunzel states she thinks Flynn likes her, Gothel blows her off with, “But just look at you. You think he’s impressed?” She also constantly makes Rapunzel feel responsible for everything that goes wrong. When they get in the argument in the beginning, Gothel victimizes herself and does her best to make Rapunzel feel guilty for asking her for a simple favor. It’s so textbook. And immediately after anything, she treats Rapunzel by promising her favourite soup and reminding her, “I love you most” to reel her back into that false sense of security.
And back to the animation of how she didn’t notice the maternal and loving hand was actually a malicious claw until she realised she was in an abusive relationship. Basically, Tangled is a really important movie, and the fact Gothel is so familiar to those of us who have experienced abuse is good because children are going to watch this and look for Gothels in their own lives.
