The New Spidey: Better or Worse? And Something Completely Irrelevant.

Hey guys! So, as you can see from the title, you'll probably presume that I have watched the new Spiderman movie, The Amazing Spiderman. Recently I've seen loads of people argue about the fact that Andrew Garfield was better or Tobey Maguire was better and blaaah blaaah blaah. So I decided to give my view. Most of the people who have said that Andrew Garfield was better, were girls that were infatuated by the apparent heartthrob, Andy Garfield. And ofcourse, the classic and loyal fans of the Spiderman Trilogy will continue to support Mr. Tobey. As a neutral watcher of all of the four movies, I'd have to give it to Mr. Garfield. Yes, his acting was superb. He presented the idea of a 'geek' excellently, being so nervous each time he spoke to his crush, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). Just his overall representation of Spiderman was very similar to the good old comics and the cartoons. No doubt, Tobey Maguire was great as well, but Andy did a fantastic job as the new Spidey.

And in terms of the movie, I really enjoyed it. That too, in 3D. The action scenes, the Lizard Man, everything   impressed me and exceeded my expectations. I really thought that it would be an average movie since the whole cast was replaced. But I was really impressed.

Anyway, for all those who havent watched it, I suggest you do asap! You'll have a heck of a time, trust me.

Well, now its time for the 'Something Completely Irrelevant' part of the post.

Have any of you guys EVER traveled in a public bus? It is a HECK of an experience. I nearly died had a heart attack the first time. Its crazy! I wanted to try it for the heck of it. Guys seriously have to JUMP onto the bus to get on. It doesn't stop. It just slows down and you have to literally run after it and JUMP on it. And sometimes, its SO crowded. People have to freaking climb the bus and sit on the roof, its hilarious! And  SO, SO dangerous!

Haha, it was a lot of fun. And its the same case while getting off. You have to jump off like some sort of stuntman in an action scene from a movie. Ok maybe thats an exaggeration, but you DO have to jump off a moving vehicle! And the people on the bus, they are usually ones who are manual labourers or are looking for cheap transport, so they really STARE at people like me, dressed in western clothes. And something hilarious happened with me as well.

I was standing at the exit of the bus, where I was getting ready to jump off as it slows down. I had my headphones plugged into my phone, and my phone was in my pocket. As soon as the bus slowed down, I felt a slight tug on the wire coming out of my pocket. I quickly turned and looked at it, and I saw a random hand grabbing the wire. I honestly was confused, and realized it was a pick-pocket! So I looked up, but the person, as cunning as a fox, quickly took back his hand immediately, and I couldn't recognize the thief. The bus was SO crowded, it could've been anyone's hand. So I just jumped off quickly, and checked my pockets. Thank God, nothing was missing.

Just LOOK at that! Those people climbing the bus, they're climbing it while its MOVING. Oh how I love my country and its people, haha.

What an experience, honestly.

You muggle, don't you know you NEVER listen to music in a bus on your iPod or walkman or phone?
And you never ever wear Western clothes.
That's like going to a thieves' den and announcing using a megaphone that you have a million dollars.
OH, and I'm calling everyone a Muggle, so don't take it personally :)
