Oh, Ridley Scott. We had such high hopes for your Alien prequel movie Prometheus, but poor choices made it a funhouse of ridiculous and horribly distracting violations of science — and common sense. Untold light-years from Earth, an android can’t properly count time; when asked how long the mission has lasted, he says, “2 years, 4 months, 18 days, 36 hours, 15 minutes,” not “2 years, 4 months, 19 days, 12 hours and 15 minutes”. Just about the only thing that Scott got right with Prometheus was the organizational ineptitude of the mission, which was essentially a doomed-to-catastrophically-fail season of Big Brother on an alien world
Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) continues his alter ego heroics as Spider-Man, this time fighting the villain Electro (Jamie Foxx), an electrical engineer and lineman who was repairing a power line, and a freak lightning accident caused a mutagenic change that transformed him into a living electrical capacitor. He gained the ability to control electricity after the accident. Electro tries to take over New York City’s power supply in an attempt at glory and respect. The extremely beautiful Mary Jane Watson (Shailene Woodley) comes into the picture as a romantic interest of Peter Parker, competing with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) for Peter Parker’s affection. Harry Osborn will also be introduced as Peter’s friend. In this sequel, we will see not only Peter’s superhero psychology, but also more about his orphan identity.
