Amazing Spider-Man 2 special preview

Phew, I think our technical issues are over! Hopefully. If anything still goes wonky, drop me a comment and I’ll look into it.

In happier news, last weekend I had the opportunity to watch 30 minutes of the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie! It was very exciting.

I didn’t go for the Spider-Man event at Earth Hour and red carpet with the cast, but I recommend you check out the ever-awesome Here Be Geeks and Red Dot Diva, who were!

It was early on Saturday morning that I made my way down to the Golden Village cinema at VivoCity for the blogger’s session.

Sony had invited bloggers to the special preview screening, so it was great to see some familiar faces again. :D

We didn’t watch the first 30 minutes exactly, just three scenes that totaled 30 minutes. It included the first 10 or 15 minutes of the movie, which was super cool!  And I can’t review it here, I can share some of my thoughts.

We watched it all in 3D. I genuinely dislike the whole shift towards 3D, mainly because my weird eyesight means that I always have trouble seeing the entire screen. In really bad cases, I get awful splitting headaches.

But! I was pleasantly surprised by how good the 3D is in Amazing Spider-Man 2. I didn’t have any issues at all. I wasn’t distracted by the illusion of depth, which has happened before. I stayed completely and utterfly transfixed throughout that 30 minutes.

The 3D enhances the amazing CGI. The effects are spectacular, even in our era of grandoise CGI-laden mega movies. I can’t say too much otherwise it’d be spoilerific, but the CGI is complementary to the really fun, feels-laden story.

Something tells me that I’ll be going “my feelings, my feelings” after I watch the full movie.

Many thanks to the folks at Sony Pictures Singapore, who invited me to the screening in the first place. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in cinemas on 1 May. Can’t wait!
