Hello everyone! 🙂
I’ve now seen the extended DVD editions of two of my favourite superhero movies for Christmas! They are ‘Spider-Man 2.1’ and ‘Fantastic Four’ Extended Edition. Both these exciting DVDs feature never-before-seen footage of the two Marvel superhero movies that were shown at the cinemas!
Both ‘Spider-Man 2’ and the 2005 film of ‘Fantastic Four’ are two superhero movies that mean something special to me! I consider them classic superhero movies, so it was lovely to have these extended DVD editions and watch the movies afresh with some brand-new scenes for me to enjoy!
I enjoyed the two extended movies for Christmas. Beforehand, I had read the brilliant novelizations by Peter David on both ‘Spider-Man 2’ and ‘Fantastic Four’. I was expecting scenes that I remembered from reading the novels in the extended movies. Some of the scenes were in the DVDs!
‘Spider-Man 2.1’ was brilliant, as I enjoyed the new extended action scenes and new scenes that feature character development for Peter Parker; Mary Jane; Harry Osborn; Aunt May; Doc Ock and J. Jonah Jameson. I was very funny when J. Jonah Jameson tried out the Spider-Man outfit in his office!
I found the first half of ‘Spider-Man 2.1’ better than the second half. There were more extended and new scenes in the first half compared to the second. But that didn’t worry me, as ‘Spider-Man 2’ is still a great masterpiece of a superhero movie and the news scenes helped to enjoy this movie more.
The extended edition of ‘Fantastic Four’ was equally brilliant as ‘Spider-Man 2.1’. There weren’t a lot of brand-new action sequences in the extended version of the movie, but there were some lovely new scenes of character development for Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm.
I enjoyed some of the new romantic scenes between Reed and Sue and I especially enjoyed the new scenes between Ben and her love interest Alicia Masters. The second half of ‘Fantastic Four’ Extended Edition was better than the first half as there were more new scenes to enjoy in the movie.
‘Spider-Man 2.1’ and ‘Fantastic Four’ Extended Edition have been both great DVDs to watch for Christmas. They’re two of my favourite superhero movies and I loved watching them refresh with new scenes of character development and action and the casts in both films are as loveable as ever.
Thanks for reading!
Bye for now!
