Last night my son and I went and saw "The Amazing Spider-Man." Now, I've seen all the ones with Tobey Maguire, and they didn't seem like they were made all that long ago, so I wasn't sure why another version was being made. Eh, I still don't. But I liked this version, too and will probably watch any sequels (which have already been set up, so it's kind of a no-brainer!).
I read somewhere where the special effects were better. But who could tell? I mean, the special effects for "Spiderman" were pretty awesome. If there was an improvement to "The Amazing Spider-Man," I didn't notice it.
Sort of like my Blue Ray DVD player vs. the up-convert DVD player we used own (well, we still own it – it's just in another room). There was supposed to be a huge difference on the Blue Ray player, but frankly, I don't see it (and yes, we tested it with actual Blue Ray DVDs). Main reason we still buy regular DVDs. They're cheaper. Why pay more for something you can't notice?
Probably the special effects the movie industry WANTS you to watch is the 3D version. Well, my son and I don't like 3D movies. They give us headaches. And I'm certainly not going to plunk down money to get a headache. Would you?
Do you like the 3D movies? Do you really think they're necessary? Or worth it? Because let's face it, you pay MORE for those movies. Even at $5.00 movie night, the 3D movies cost $2.00 more.
