New Releases: 7/6/12
I've been against this from day one, and I'm sticking to my guns. I love Emma Stone and like Andrew Garfield. I'm not some die hard purist of the first franchise. I own the first two films, but couldn't tell you the last time I watched either of them. And I absolutely hated the third one. And I'm not against franchise reboots either, as a zombie outbreak couldn't keep me from The Dark Knight Rises. But come one: 10 YEARS! That's just not enough time folks. I feel like I have to stand on principle that Hollywood shouldn't be able to reboot something as big as Spider-Man this soon. I'll rent it someday, but I'm not paying for a ticket when I feel like I just saw the first one in the theater, a night which I distinctly remember from a mere decade ago.
This is just another Oliver Stone film that doesn't interest me at all. Drug dealers. Pretty girl. Mexican cartel. I feel like I've seen it all before. I'll just wait for Season 5 of Breaking Bad, thanks.
I do not get these docs on the pop flavor of the month. Well, not true. I know it's just a cash grab to exploit the tweens of the world and their obsession over shitty pop music. Seriously though, these careers aren't long enough to matter and in 20 years, they won't.
