Sunday at the Movies

I was reluctant to see the new Spider-Man movie, the Tobey Maguire series was ok. I must admit Spider-Man has never been my favorite super hero, my heart has always belonged to another.
But seriously a reboot after the last series finished 5 years ago? C'mon Hollywood let's come up with an original idea......I realize I'm asking a lot.
This new cast did seem intriguing to say the least, our new Spider Man's only really big part was in the facebook movie  and the bad guy is played by the crazy roommate in Notting Hill.

one of my favorite movies
Not to mention Emma Stone who is always amazing as the fun, quirky girl next store.
 Stone @ the 2011 Golden Globes, I love her Calvin Klein Dress!

  But then the movie started getting really good reviews and on fourth of July weekend I needed a fun movie. I was pleasantly surprised, it was different take than the previous series, this Spider-Man is a bit younger and edgier ( he has a skateboard!). Any movie that has a "testing your new powers" scene set to this song gets points in my book. Emma and Andrew are very cute together, and Rhys Ifans is great as the mad scientist, and of course we get set up for the second installment. Oh and Stan Lee's  customary cameo appearance is the best yet. So if you are on the fence, I say go see it, you will probably be surprised with how much you like it.

After the movie were greeted with a spotty shower and rainbow....a wonderful way to cap of the evening.
Yes, that is a Chicken Express


Have a wonderful Monday Everyone!

Spiderman and a rainbow in the same day, who can ask for more?

I agree the movie is great, I had my reservations about a remake also, but no more - can't wait for the sequel.

Rainbows lift all our spirits and remind us just how precious life is. Enjoy!
