So before Rick abandoned (more like escaped) us for Ryan (of the O’Leary variety) and flew all the way to New York, he virtually sat down with Bryce to record a review for his newly purchased Nexus 7. Bryce was there mostly because Rick wanted the company and because he enjoys talking to someone other than himself from time to time.

In all seriousness, Rick went to New York to help Ryan out with his upcoming film, The Backseat, and left the keys to the ever responsible Mike and the super dependable Bryce. Unfortunately, neither characteristic shined through this week because Mike and Bryce are the opposite of responsible and dependable. Actually, that is only half true since Mike was indeed responsible (watching the kids), but Bryce of course wasn’t dependable (couldn’t coordinate time to record). Needless to say, episode 074 of SSWL will consist solely of Rick’s Nexus 7 review. Luckily, the boys (minus Mike) rambled on for around 40 minutes, saving us from the embarrassment of not delivering a show for all of our loyal listeners. Without further ado, please enjoy this shortened (we like to call it “special”) edition of SSWL.

This week I came across an interview with Andrew Garfield about the new Amazing Spider-Man movie.  He talks about what playing Spider-man means to him as an actor and as a fan.  He claims he is lucky and unlucky about playing spider-man because he calls himself a fan first and foremost.  He also goes on to talk about the various comic book runs and how he used them to his advantage on portraying Peter and Spidey.

The best part of these videos is when he talks about how excited he was to see the first (Sam Raimi) Spider-Man movie.  He was so excited that he bought a bootleg/pirated version of it.   Of course, the biggest rumor going around that everyone is asking about is when will Spider-Man make a cameo in Avengers?

The new trailer is out now (more on this on SSWL) and I was flabbergasted by it.  I literally had to pick up my jaw from the floor I loved it so much.  THIS is the Spider-Man I was expecting to see in the first movie.  A jokey, fun, and geek Parker/Spider-man.  Emma Watson and Andrew Garfield look great together and look like they will have great chemistry on screen.
