The new Spider-Man movie The Amazing Spider-Man 2™ comes to theaters in May. Have you seen the previews? It looks like it is going to be epic and I can not wait to see it!
My household is a fan of comic book heroes. We are definitely a fairly geeky family. We love all things geeky and we love a good comic con every now and then.
Peter Parker is the definition of geek...that is before he became Spider-Man and received his spidey sense and super web flinging powers. Actually he has a lot of interesting character traits that make him very relatable. He's chosen to defend good and battle evil, but the and most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. Before he died, Peter's uncle Ben told him that with great power comes great responsibility and this is so true.
I was given the opportunity to review The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Family Discussion Guide. It is a Christian guide that goes through and helps parents discuss the movie and its parallels with the Bible with their children. I thought it was a very well written guide. It goes through 6 different subjects that intertwine to make or break a hero: the nature of power, you are somebody who is needed, time is luck and life is precious, live your own life and make it count, choices and destiny, and sacrifice. It is great for helping kids who have been bullied or are depressed.
It helps children learn:
- to use their inner strengths/powers for good, responsively
- to stand up for the innocent when others are abusing their powers
- that they are needed in the world
- to make every moment in the day doing something that is good
- that what you do in life matters
- that managing time and balancing responsibilities is very important
- to emulate the good in others, not the bad
- to strengthen their good talents and abilities
- to use their talents and abilities for good
- to make good choices because it shapes who we become in life
- how making sacrifices for a higher cause is heroic
