The Amazing Spider-Man is so damn amazing!

I was one of the first people in Singapore to catch The Amazing Spider-Man at Lido on 20th June thanks to Sony Pictures who arranged a special trade screening. The Amazing Spider-Man is a reboot of the Spider-Man film series directed by 500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb and starring The Social Network's Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Spiderman.

I had doubts about this new version of Spider-Man when it was first announced that they are rebooting the franchise. Do we really need a new Spider-Man? After watching The Amazing Spider-Man, my answer is HELL YES!

The Amazing Spider-Man is the best Spider-Man movie ever! It's so damn good that you will forget the 3 Spider-Man films before this. Straits Times columnist John Lui, one of the harshest critic in Singapore, was sitting in front of me. And I heard it with my own ears, he said it was good. And when John Lui says it's good, that means it's probably great for the rest of us. And sorry Tobey, Andrew Garfield is a better Peter Parker and he is THE Spider-Man!

Go watch The Amazing Spider-Man now showing in cinemas everywhere.  I recommend watching it in 3D or IMAX 3D. The flying scenes especially the part when Spidey is floating in the air in slow-mo are breathtaking in 3D and worth the extra dollars. But before you go watch the movie, catch the following videos first.
