The Amazing Spider-Man
Gordan & Joyce Runyan
It’s often a sticky situation, discerning the underlying worldview that a movie is preaching. In fact, it can drive lesser mortals to climb the walls. In the absence of one our regular podcasters, our oldest daughter, Carmen, swings in to save the day. In this episode, teen outcast (with fabulous hair and super-model good looks,) Peter Parker loses his parents to a shadowy conspiracy; is invisible to girls; gets bitten by a radioactive spider; gains powers; makes way for his uncle to be murdered; befriends a handicapped mad scientist; gets the girl; makes the girl’s dad want to arrest him; fights a giant, angry lizard who only wants to help the human race evolve; remembers to get organic egss for Aunt May; and saves the world.
