The Weekly Stuff #85 - Taking down the atrocious 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'
It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, video gaming, and television. Remember to subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link!
As promised, this week’s podcast is devoted to tackling the disgusting monstrosity that is The Amazing Spider-Man 2. I expressed my unending hatred for this so-called ‘movie’ in my written review last week, and now that Sean has seen and hated the film as well, we spend the majority of this week’s episode tearing into all the ways the movie fails simply as a piece of filmmaking, along with exploring how the film fundamentally misunderstands Peter Parker/Spider-Man as a character. This is, as we explain in the episode, the worst film we have ever talked about on the podcast – yes, we hated this even more than Prometheus – so it makes for a fairly epic rant.
Before the in-depth movie review, though, we also expand on our discussions of Hearthstone and Titanfall from last week and cover some recent gaming news, including Microsoft’s inevitable decision to unbundle the Kinect from the Xbox One.
Enjoy the show, and come back next week for our review of Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, which will hopefully be much better than The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Not that making a better movie would be in any way difficult.
