Some of my older kiddos saw The Amazing Spiderman 2 when it was playing in theaters. I, on the other hand, couldn’t get past the fact that someone other than Toby McGuire was playing Peter Parker. In fact, I don’t think I even saw the first of the new series.
But, I have to say, I was really missing out. My boys talked me in to renting the movie this weekend. I figured, it was the last weekend before school started, it was a movie they wanted to see, and I was sorta curious about this “new” Peter Parker. The movie did seem a bit more akin to the comic books than a real-life action movie, but I was certainly not disappointed. Well, the ending had me shaking my head, but I won’t ruin it for you in the case you haven’t seen it.
You know, it’s available on DVD now. In fact, Walmart now carries it both in stores and online. The Blu-ray combo pack is just $19.96 and includes the Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. The Blu-ray combo pack is a must-own with 13 deleted scenes plus 100 minutes of extras. To be honest, even though we already rented it, and my boys watched it twice in 24 hours, we will most likely purchase the pack.
To get everyone excited about the release of the DVD, there is a contest you just must enter! It’s the Be a Hero Contest. Here are the details:
-You can create a video and post it on YouTube that explains why their school is “amazing.”
-You must tweet a live link to the video with the hashtag #BeAHeroContest.
You can find more information and rules at Walmart.com/Spiderman, but i a nutshell the contest begins 8/5 and ends 9/14 and there will be 5 Grand Prize Winners who will win a Spider-Man visit to your school, $1000 in Scholastic books, a year supply of Elmer’s glue sticks, and a year supply of Crayola Crayons. In addition, there will be 250 First Prize Winners who will win a Spider-Man recorded PA announcement, Scholastic books, 10 Elmer’s glue sticks, and 10 packages of Crayola Crayons!
How cool is that?!
Now, I’m sure you are wondering how you can create a winning video, right? Well, here are some tips:
- Start off in a well-lit area, avoiding a lot of clutter
- Make sure you and your kiddos are completely in the frame of the video camera, whether it is a smart phone or something more advanced
- Avoid areas with lots of noise
- Keep it sort and sweet
- Most importantly, be yourself!
Now, hurry! Go make your video!!
