The first week of holidays is almost coming to an end. I planned to catch the french film “Blue is the Warmest Colour” by Abdellatif Kechiche with J today but we found that it’s R21 and I was so upset. :( So we went ahead to catch The Amazing Spider-man 2 instead. Everyone was raving about how awesome the show is, and I have to agree. But- WHY DIDN’T ANYONE TELL ME THAT GWEN DIED?!?! *cries-wails-screams-portests-scrunched-up-face-add-some-tears*
That explains the picture going around Facebook with Emma Stone photoshopped with a red wig and turning into Mary Jane… (?!) Bleh. I cried really badly when she died. I was so baffled about why Gwen wasn’t waking up to Peter’s relentless calls. Until about a full minute (or more) J broke the news to me that she died…& I went *gasping voice* “whaaaaaat?! She can’t die!!!”
I really loved the couple. I actually believe that it’s because of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone’s chemistry that made me die a little inside… I don’t remember being any upset when bad things happened to Mary-Jane in the old Spiderman, played by Kirsten Dunst. No offence, but apart from the ‘upside down kiss’, I couldn’t really feel much from Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire.
The famous kiss.
& this, concludes my favourite couple of the year. aww <3 :)
I enjoyed The Amazing Spider-man 2 very much for many reasons. They had really cool graphics, the casts were great, & I could really feel a lot of emotions from the film. I quite like the new Harry Osborn, acted by Dane DeHaan, though I was not really used to having such a young face for the character at first.
More importantly, I felt quite sorry for Electro or Max Dillon (acted by Jamie Foxx). He was actually a good & ordinary person who wants nothing but what he’s devoid of in his life- affirmation, appreciation & love. But power got to him… and nothing good ever happens when a hating man is suddenly charged with a surge of power he doesn’t know how to control. Like Harper Lee wrote in To Kill a Mockingbird, “Sometimes the bible in the hand of one man is worst than a whiskey bottle in another…”.
People should really be nicer to each other and try to understand an empty soul when you encounter one. Sometimes these souls have a deceiving exterior that may deter you from getting close to them, but if you really want to make the world a better place you’ve got to show them kindness and understanding… On the other hand, I really hope that the angry, lost, hopeless, bitter, & lonely people believe that no matter how many bad experiences they’ve been through with people, or in life, the good ones count more. It’s useless just accumulating all the bad energy in you & hating on every being in this world. Tell the negativity in your head to get lost and listen to your heart beating… Remember that you have a soul. That soul is your very own. You can make a vulnerable orchid, or a strong rain tree out of it…Perhaps even a rich garden of all wonderful sorts. :)
haha! This part is really just Hollywood’s signature way of tugging at your heart’s strings. But I let mine get tugged willingly because this kid is just too adorable. Awww <3
So in conclusion, the movie was spectacular. Any movie that makes me cry, laugh, smile, & squirm in my seat is a good movie. I can’t wait for The Amazing Spider-man 3 already! Though i’m not looking forward to find out who Mary-Jane Watson is going to be… I just L O V E Emma Stone. & Andrew Garfield <3
I had a great day today with J, away from all the stuffiness and unhappiness that happened earlier on in the morning with my father. I say stuffiness because I felt like I was going to die of oxygen deprivation. I really hate knowing that he is a 50 plus year old man & still suffering from anger management. But I understand. I fully understand & accept that nobody is perfect.
Watch The Amazing Spider-Man 2, if you haven’t!
