My semi-spoiler ridden Amazing Spider-Man 2 review

Been awhile CV,

I was lucky enough to attend the premiere of Amazing Spider-Man 2, and have held off on a CV review until now as it will be within your power to see it tonight.

Now I don't want to spoil a lot, so I will just get into characters who appear, and maybe vaguely spoil some things to those in the know:

Acting: Superb. Special Effects: Superior, Writing Superb

On to the things I am comfortable saying:

Spider-Man: Typical moral dilemma, his life as Spidey and personal life conflicting is as expected a problem.

Max Dillon/Electro: Anyone who had a problem with Electro being black should be ashamed, Jamie Foxx did an awesome job.

Gwen Stacy: If you are a long time Spider-Man fan, you saw this coming.

Norman Osborn: Downplayed quite a bit, I figured him as the "big bad" not even the little bad, well is the sense he did not directly fight Spider-Man....

Harry Osborn: John Connor want's his hair back... LOL J/K he was great.... There is the very true to comics angle of Harry being Peter's friend and Spider-Man's enemy that comes into play.

Felicia Hardy: No Black Cat yet. But since she wears all black clothes, I take that as a sign for ASM3.

Alystair Smythe: He is not making Spider-Slayers. he is just a D-Bag scientist working for OsCorp

Ashley Kafka: Was surprised by her, and Ravencroft's inclusion.

Rhino: At the beginning he was just a thug, at the end, he resembled something that looked like a combo of 616 and Ultimate Rhino.

Spider-Boy/Steel Spider: I only say "Steel Spider" to remind you of who he may become, but Spider-Boy makes a appearance (powerless) in this movie, and is actually a notable cameo.

Richard and Mary Parker: Not SHIELD agents in the movie. Richard was working for OsCorp... anything further would be a spoiler.

It was an honor seeing a special showing. and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

A Ghost of Comicvine Past

As much as I wanted to, I could not delete this video, it was me (virginity still fully intact) with what people call, the "Ted hair" announcing the match-ups for a CV RP tournament.... Wow, this makes me realise, in the shadows or up front how long I have stuck with this and the other whiskey media sites, been a great many years guys and gals, lets keep it up till we are in depends!

Well without further hesitation, pre-balding me!

In Memory of Kerren

I lost a good friend yesterday, my friend/former girlfriend Kerren Leigh Kent, age 31, died of Cystic Fibrosys yesterday. She leaves behind a Father who has already lost Kerren's sister in a car accident and mother in another accident, and a 3 year old daughter Kirsten. She also leaves behind numerous grieving friends including this CV/AV wiki editor. I was at one point romantically involved with Kerren, though that did not last I treasure the memories. She will be missed by all who knew her, and even some who dont, as she began a poetry blog in recent days. Rest in peace Kerren, this friend will miss you -Aaron


Sorry I am somewhat impaired

Diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, explains a lot. Asperger's is a highly functional form of Autism that impairs the part of the brain that recognizes social protocol, basically I am highly evolved intellectually but retarded socially. I think this explains a lot, not a damning form of autism, I am still after all highly intelligent, just unable to recognize when I am pissing someone off or saying something viewed as inappropriate.

To understand me better:


Winter Wear.. Do Super-Heroes modify their costumes for the cold?

Spandex and skin tight apparel is hardly winter wear, while I suspect masks help shield wind chill, the same can not be said for skin tight costumes, an example of this was mentioned in a Spider-Man novel, where Spidey wore a 90's style Avengers leather jacket over his costume to help stay warm, though still felt like he was freezing due to the thin fabric of his costume. In general super-hero costumes seem designed for flexibility, not warmth. Any theories on what the heroes do to stay warm during the winter months?


Mocking this dude, my new hobby

Dunno why, but my new hobby is mocking this guy on youtube, he's a big ball of meaningless rage, probably pissed he has not received a Fox News deal, and ends all his vids the same damn way, staring at the camera and breathing hard... I make fun of him unmercifully, and he is actually someone who keeps up on and removes any negative comments... You may understand why I feel it is so freaking funny to mock his rage filled tyrates after this 


Watching Being Human

Watching "Being Human" on Syfy.... How ultra pissed you think Aiden is going to be when he finds out the vampire kid he staked was not responsible for the murders of the bullies?
