    For my English class, we have been reading Romeo and Juliet for the past month now. This play requires tons and tons of patience. It is very hard to follow, do to it being written in Shakspeare. However, at the core of this story, I feel it is a very intriguing tale that has potential. But so many times I find this story to lag on and on, and find it a little bit boring. I feel that it uses uneven story telling, and it's hard to follow what is actually happening. One thing I will say about this old as time tale is that it has excellent character development. Today, too many stories have way too many characters and they can't balance them all out. While there are instances I don't find myself invested in the story, not once do I question the characters actions. I always understand the characters point of view, and why they do the things they do. I get why Romeo kills Tybalt, and why Juliet doesn't want to marry Paris. That is perfectly clear throughout the story. I know that this play was published in like the 1500's, and that it's important to know about. However, for it's time, I feel that this was probably very advanced. So in the long run, Romeo and Juliet is something you are probably going to have to read some time. I'm not saying that I didn't enjoy it, but just too many times I find myself drifting off. It's up to you if you like it or not, however I think that it was a semi interesting story that could have been a bit improved on.

    This series was quite enthralling. I remember reading this comic series back when I was in the 4th grade. Spider-Man: Marvel Adventures. It follows the adventures of Peter Parker, as he navigates his way through high school. However, he doesn't fight crime alone. With the help of his girlfriend, Sophia "Chat" Sanduval, and the Blonde Phantom Detective Agency. Chat is a mutant, with the ability to talk to animals with her mind. Throughout the series, Spider-Man teams up with other heroes such as Wolverine, Black Cat, and the Blonde Phantom, just to name a few. This series has a different take on the wall- crawler that everybody knows and loves. Although, my one issue with this series is that it ended to soon. For example, the last issue came in 2012, just as Disney XD was launching it's new T.V. series, "Ultimate Spider-Man." Marvel wanted to do a tie in comic series with the show, and so they canceled this series and replaced it with a "Ultimate Spider-Man" comic series. And yes, that wasn't nearly as good as this one. So if you haven't already read this series, and your a comic fan, I say you give it a shot. It may not be as good as some of the others, but it's alright. But if your a crazy Spider-Man fan like me, you might want to read it.

    spider2001's book review was featured in Sound Bender.
    While it has been a while since I have read this book, I distinctly remember it. At the time, it was one of my favorite books. It was unique, and different. While it does borrow some similar elements from some other stories, it never looses it´s originality. It kept me interested in the world of the Sound Bender from beginning to end. This story centers around Leo, a young teenager who is sent to live with his filthy rich uncle after his parents were killed in a plane crash. As the story progresses, Leo begins to uncover his amazing ability to hear the history of an object when he touches it. He uses his new found abilities to uncover the truth of his Uncle Crane, and who he really is. If you haven't yet read this book, I suggest you give it a try. Every chapter progressively get better, until the heart stopping finale that leaves you wanting more. Sound Bender is definitely worth a read!

    spider2001's movie review was featured in Fantastic Four.
    G23cs30dcmig4ldaovnp1ucjs6Okay, come on. This movie is not nearly as bad as everyone says it is. A 9% on Rotten Tomatoes? Seriously? This movie is an origin story. It really isn't anything more. It has excellent character development, and a great musical score. Also, the acting was very good as well. Yes, they waited till the very end to have the team get together, and take on Doom. But I think that when everyone looks at this movie, that's what they immediately think of. "Oh, this movie is so bad! Nothing happens in this movie! There's no action in it! Doom looks horrible!" Okay, this movie is not that bad. Of course events take place throughout the course of the film. They become the Fantastic Four somehow, don't they? Yes, there isn't much action in it. But quite honestly, I'm sick an tired of people complaining about a movie not having enough action sequences. And then when there's too much action, they complain about that, to. Think of it as the first issue of a comic book. It's there to set up the character's stories. Does the first issue have many fight scenes? No, it doesn't. It may have one, towards the end of the story. As does this film. And people that are saying this is worst then the 2005 one, come on. Really? Have you actually saw it? This is not a terrible movie. It really isn't. It could have been a lot better. But I for one, and not upset with what we got in the long run. Come on people, this movie has an excellent story line going for itself. What it fell short of was the action. I feel that if another half and hour was added onto the run time, it could have properly handled the battle sequences. As for Doctor Doom, I'm not going to lie, he did look a little weird. But that shouldn't effect your opinion on the entire movie. Really, guys. It really is not that bad. Sure, It's not "The Avengers" or anything, but It delivers a genuine superhero origin story. Give this movie a chance, and while you are watching it, take this review into consideration.
