RippingMovieReview: The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 10.28.50 AM

So, the studio—along with the analysts—brings you “The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)”.

You know, it’s an interest for sure that the Spider-Man series was rebooted in the first place.

It’s a wonder.

A shocking wonder.

Spider-Man (the 2002 film), starring Tobey Maguire, Willem Dafoe, and Kirsten Dunst grossed over $800 million. The sequel, Spider-Man 2 (2004 film) grossed over $780 million. And the third and final film, Spider-Man 3 (2007) grossed over $890 million.

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) grossed a lot of money, too.

And it’s a wonder, since it came out only 5 years after the last Spider-Man movie!

(As a side note, don’t you suppose they should come up with more creative names for the movies? This professor thinks so. “Spider-Man” just gets boring after a while.)

So, here is The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) ripped for two chief reasons:
1. It’s a reboot of a successful franchise.
2. Its name stinks.

    “You have no hair. You have no power because you have NO HAIR!” X-P
    I still think this one makes Peter Parker look like he was played by Hayden Christiansen. Seriously. Please, someone release us from the agony!!! :-P

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke September 13, 2014 at 18:20

      Haha! Wouldn’t Anakin make a good superhero?

      • 3 erinkenobi2893 September 15, 2014 at 00:31

        Oh, yeah. He’d be the grumpy, angsty, annoying one (who was in love with his ‘handler’, aka Padme), while Obi-Wan would be the intellectual, determined one, best friends with Horatio, Will and Merlin, and Qui-Gon, Pellew, Halt and Gaius would be very much commiserating with each other as to their respective wards. :-P

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:44

        *nods* It does work out.

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 September 16, 2014 at 00:09

        OR… *gasp* URBAN FANTASY!!!
        That would be so coolio! Like, Anakin is a dark wizard, Obi-Wan is officially a Dragonslayer (title given to basically anyone who makes a habit of slaying the dragons and other dangerous nuisance animals that threaten their city/metropolis/world) and moonlights with a much more serious occupation (his real occupation), hunting down those who use magic for evil and vampires, shades, revenants, the odd Sidhe (pronounced “shee”) who gets out of line and starts stalking humans and won’t be persuaded to stop, or the occasional Kelpie that takes to pulling humans down into the depths of their pools and fountains. That is, until he discovers that he has the ability to use magic. His mentor (Qui-Gon) warns him never to use his gift unless it is to heal people, help gardens grow, etc; magic used for evil corrupts its user. Anyway, I even had an idea for how to begin the action. From Anakin’s point of view, looking for someone to take along on a Quest. He can’t trust anyone in the Brotherhood of Sith (the “official” name of the dark magic users,) so he goes looking for a mercenary to hire to go along with him, and he stumbles across Obi-Wan, who, alongside being a Dragonslayer, is a knight (the title is mostly hereditary) with no ties to a lord (probably because he’s a disinherited lord himself). At least, that’s what Obi-Wan lets people know, to protect both them and himself.
        Oh, what a crazy world I live in… -_-

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:30

        *laughs* But hey! It does sound very interesting. I like the idea of Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon paired up again. Of course, Dooku would have to be in it.

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 September 16, 2014 at 20:26

        Yes, he would. ^_^ Maybe I will have him be a magic user loosely aligned with the Jedi… ^_^ I should mention, none of the Jedi are actually magic users, just extremely well-trained fighters/hunters. But Obi-Wan discovers that he has a natural magical aptitude, and he ends up creating his own “school” of magic use.

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:28

        Which is an interest. I’m sure it would enhance the Jedi abilities.

      • 9 erinkenobi2893 September 17, 2014 at 21:43

        And it would be extremely cool, especially if Dooku offered to teach Obi-Wan to use magic and Qui-Gon disagreed… ^_^

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 14:37

        *laughs* I’d love to see that!

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 September 18, 2014 at 15:23

        Indeed…. Dooku teaching Obi-Wan would be a wonder. Also, what if Dooku thought that Obi-Wan asked too many questions???

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 20:25

        Now, that would be surprising! You need to write something like this, I think.

      • 13 erinkenobi2893 September 19, 2014 at 12:51

        Yeah…. ^_^

  2. 14 Hazy September 1, 2014 at 12:55

    Haha, I wonder too. And I haven’t seen this reboot.

    Ah, that’s campbell scott! (the actor I mentioned to you before) The daddy of little spidey!

    *laughs* How did he fit through a toilet pipe? We may never know.

    • 15 Professor VJ Duke September 1, 2014 at 14:08

      It’s not as good as the original ones, I think.

      Oh! Is that the fellow? A wonder.

      *laughing* I know…it’s a humdinger, you must admit.

      • 16 Hazy September 14, 2014 at 08:35

        *nods nods* I liked the original ones. Maguire did a great job, and it wasn’t too dark or serious for little kiddies to watch.

      • 17 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:17

        Yes…it was nice and light!

  3. 18 mgrace58 August 24, 2014 at 04:38

    Another one?!!! And the punch line in Three… Two… One… lol Ok I thought this was funny. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but common! I thought I had already?! Great job!
    Michelle

    • 19 Professor VJ Duke August 24, 2014 at 17:50

      Many thanks! Yes, they rebooted it! It’s a wonder. Do you want to see it now?

      • 20 mgrace58 August 25, 2014 at 01:31

        I don’t think I saw the last one… ;)

      • 21 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 13:35

        *shocked face* But…why not, MW! You have to. Did you know the professor is Spiderman?

      • 22 mgrace58 August 26, 2014 at 01:09

        I didn’t know that! Must come with the Jedi training ;)

      • 23 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:50

        *smiles proudly* A Sith, you mean!

      • 24 mgrace58 August 27, 2014 at 04:31

        Oh yes yes yes! That’s what I meant. The dark side has the best cookies ;)

      • 25 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 13:59

        I hear that’s why Darth Vader has a hard time breathing.

      • 26 mgrace58 August 28, 2014 at 05:51

        He doesn’t play well with others either… must have been an only child :lol:

      • 27 Professor VJ Duke August 28, 2014 at 13:42

        *laughs* You see how troubled his upbringing was! How would you like to find that you were the chosen one?

      • 28 mgrace58 August 29, 2014 at 16:12

        So much pressure! They placed too much on the poor kid. He rebelled! It’s no surprise really. But so so sad he could have made a wonderful cake maker ;)

      • 29 Professor VJ Duke August 29, 2014 at 20:38

        Cake? He didn’t want to do that!

      • 30 mgrace58 August 30, 2014 at 06:19

        Of course he did! Every Sith lord has to be an avid cake maker! Or cookie cutter =P The Dark Side deserves the best! ;) Yum

      • 31 Professor VJ Duke August 30, 2014 at 18:11

        Now, hold on, young lady! This professor is a Sith and I only eat cakes!

      • 32 mgrace58 August 31, 2014 at 01:56

        Devil food cake 3:) Wahahaha! Shaped as a death star!

      • 33 Professor VJ Duke August 31, 2014 at 18:56

        Perfect! When do I get a professorish slice?

      • 34 mgrace58 August 31, 2014 at 21:13

        If you have your trusty light saber you can cut the cake now :)

      • 35 Professor VJ Duke September 1, 2014 at 13:55

        Okay… *does it and hands MW a slice*

      • 36 mgrace58 September 2, 2014 at 19:24

        For me?! You shouldn’t have ;) 🍰

      • 37 Professor VJ Duke September 2, 2014 at 19:36

        After you do 30 push-ups!

      • 38 mgrace58 September 2, 2014 at 21:35

        Only 30? ;)

      • 39 Professor VJ Duke September 3, 2014 at 00:56

        *laughs* Okay, you can do 100 like the professor.

      • 40 mgrace58 September 3, 2014 at 07:19

        Ready set go!!! :D

      • 41 Professor VJ Duke September 3, 2014 at 12:33

        *laughs* Now my arms ache.

      • 42 mgrace58 September 3, 2014 at 16:39

        Mine too… :lol: Lets do Pilates next! ;)

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke September 3, 2014 at 20:37

        Goodness…what are they?

      • 44 mgrace58 September 4, 2014 at 03:36

        These are Pilates! :D Try a Roll Up

      • 45 Professor VJ Duke September 4, 2014 at 12:39

        Ahh, fooey! That’s a girls exercise.

      • 46 mgrace58 September 5, 2014 at 05:33

        Boys can do it too! ;)

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke September 5, 2014 at 18:23

        It’s girly! Should I rip another movie, MW?

      • 48 mgrace58 September 5, 2014 at 23:18

        Hahaha. Yes you should :)

      • 49 mgrace58 September 5, 2014 at 23:18

        Can I pick the movie? :D

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke September 6, 2014 at 15:56

        Absolutely! What would you like?

      • 51 mgrace58 September 7, 2014 at 13:41

        Do Mean Girls :D

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 01:05

        Oh dear…is that a warrior movie?

      • 53 mgrace58 September 8, 2014 at 19:00

        On some levels ;)

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 19:41

        Now I’m scared.

      • 55 mgrace58 September 9, 2014 at 16:12

        Common! You can rock the latest fashions, dominate the school cafeteria, and wield the light saber of awesomeness all at the same time. ;) … Well I thought it was a good idea, lol.

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:02

        *laughing lots* It is a good idea! But…but…but…but…

      • 57 mgrace58 September 10, 2014 at 18:57

        But! And there will be mini skirts and red high heels! LOL

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 22:26

        What’s a mini skirt?

      • 59 mgrace58 September 11, 2014 at 15:45

        This is a mini skirt.

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 16:08

        Hmm…well, it’s an interest. But the professor wouldn’t wear it!

      • 61 mgrace58 September 12, 2014 at 19:05

        Give it a shot you might like it! :p lol I just kid. ;)

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke September 12, 2014 at 19:07

        *growls*

  4. 63 theredsheep August 23, 2014 at 21:59

    Thank you for being the first person to comment on my blog, or the About section anyway. Personally, I hated the reboot just because they decided to switch away from Tobey Maguire’s “likeable” interpretation of the character and made him a loathsome brat with criminal tendencies who continues aggressively kissing a girl after she has clearly said “no” literally five times. Kinda wanted the Lizard to bust in through the wall and go “RAAAAR NO MEANS NO YOU LITTLE TURD!” Also their whole relationship is clearly unhealthy.

    But that’s just me.

    • 64 Professor VJ Duke August 24, 2014 at 17:47

      *laughs* Yes! Now that you say it, I do see that. Do you suppose that Gwen should have harpooned him?

  5. 65 LadyPinkRose August 23, 2014 at 18:33

    K, so I’m late. No, fashionably late, according to LADY’S standards. I LAUGHED the whole way though this and NOW, I DO SEE white. Amazing how just like that *of a finger* I saw the Professor in white. Looking good there, Duke, I must admit. I will take the red rose you gave me, even though it is NOT PINK. And cause I am the LADY I am, I do furgive you for saying what you said to me. I don’t need you any more, Susan. I took care of IT all by myself. GREAT JOB on the video!! You be getting really good at this new toy. Love, LadyP

    • 66 Professor VJ Duke August 24, 2014 at 17:46

      Many thanks, LadyP! Were you shocked when the professor popped up like a mushroom?

      • 67 LadyPinkRose August 24, 2014 at 20:58

        Absolutely shocked, yes. And oh, if you didn’t read where I left on whatever thread I wrote, you are forgiven. I’ll speak to Frank though. Hmmmm ……

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 13:33

        I asked for forgiveness! And that’s because I’m sweet, you know, LadyP. Did you see my long hair?

      • 69 LadyPinkRose August 25, 2014 at 13:47

        I saw I saw! You sure you don’t want to come over for a buzz? I’ll do it for free, just because you are the Professor and all.

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:24

        *laughs* A buzz cut? That hair cost too much! Did you know that?

      • 71 LadyPinkRose August 25, 2014 at 20:45

        Um, no. Pray tell, don’t tell me it is a WIG??? *faints*

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:32

        Why-ever would you think that, LadyP?

      • 73 LadyPinkRose August 26, 2014 at 13:34

        Well, you said it was expensive. Or did I read that wrong?

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 22:21

        Well–I can’t answer! *closes lips with a rose*

  6. 75 Catherine August 22, 2014 at 15:45

    Hahaha I love this! Good job! I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I completely agree that the name does get rather boring after a while.

    • 76 Professor VJ Duke August 23, 2014 at 16:43

      Many thanks, Catherine! It does. Do you suppose you’ll see this? I brushed my hair, you know.

      • 77 Catherine August 24, 2014 at 00:33

        I think I might…but only if someone shows it to me. I won’t go out and try to watch it. *laughing* your hair looked great, professor!

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke August 24, 2014 at 17:48

        *laughs* I felt bad for the Lizard. He just didn’t make a bad bad guy. I mean, he made a bad bad guy. He didn’t make a good bad guy–if that makes sense.

      • 79 Catherine September 17, 2014 at 23:35

        It does! *laughing*

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 14:42

        *laughing too*

  7. 81 icedmocha34 August 22, 2014 at 01:34

    I watched Spiderman for the first time today, the old one. Eeeeeuuuughhhh. I hated it so much! I’ve gotten spoiled by Andrew Garfield’s beautiful face, tee-hee. ;D

    • 82 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:37

      You didn’t like Tobey?! How! That’s impossible. And Green Goblin was cool, wasn’t he?

      • 83 icedmocha34 August 22, 2014 at 23:13

        Well, I might have liked the Goblin, except he plays the jerky author in The Fault in Our Stars, which is my fave movie. He was rotten to Augustus, so he’s on my hate list. And it’s hard to make it onto my hate list. I didn’t even have one until I saw that movie…

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke August 23, 2014 at 16:53

        *laughs* So…should we rip that movie? I bet the professor is on your hate list!

      • 85 icedmocha34 August 23, 2014 at 17:02

        NOOOOO!!!!!! I’m scared of what you guys would say about it!!!!!!

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke August 24, 2014 at 17:36

        I’d be brutally mean!

      • 87 icedmocha34 August 25, 2014 at 00:31

        I know you would…*sigh*

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 13:35

        Any movies you’d like to see ripped?

  8. 89 walt walker August 22, 2014 at 00:38

    Yes, enough Spider-Man. There ought to be a law, or some such. Not to mention that Lizard Fellow did look a bit silly.

    Maybe we should reboot books. We could be re-writing Moby Dick every ten years!

    • 90 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:36

      Yes…and how about how he talks? That’s just horrid. His mouth is barley moving, too. What do they call those people who do that sort of thing with puppets?

      *laughing* That’s a fantastic idea! Walt, I think your version of Moby Dick would be awesome. It would have to be violent, you know.

  9. 91 The Lite Rider August 21, 2014 at 21:36

    I’m extremely bored by Spiderman. How many more can they possibly do?! Thank you for this. If any word comes out there is another movie in the works, this rip must be sent to those considering same! Ha ha, love how various Pl characters chime in! Also love how the Professor “fits in” with the other white coats. Lizard Man is quite laughable and cheesy looking. Ugh. I like his “wig” at the end….

    • 92 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:35

      Yes! They were his dreadlocks. I thought they looked rather spicy, to be honest. Yes…didn’t it look like this professor brushed his hair this time?

      Good point, LR. I do think we should send this to the directors and such. But they’d probably hunt me to kill me then!

      • 93 The Lite Rider August 22, 2014 at 13:49

        Argh. Blond dreadlocks! Yes, they did look spicy! ;-)

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke August 23, 2014 at 16:08

        I know! Yucketh. Maybe I should get a wig of such things. I think Lady Cheetah would like it.

  10. 95 Lady Cheetah August 21, 2014 at 19:03

    Awesome PVJ! These rips are getting better each movie. I saw the first Spiderman years ago in NC and what a disappointing movie. Totally refuse to see or rent anymore. Your rip imo was probably better than the movie itself. Good job to the analysts!

    • 96 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:34

      *bows* Many thanks, for sure! You mean…you don’t want to see the movie? See…if I could convince the movie producers that my reviews sell their movies…they’d pay me a million dollars a show. Don’t you think that’s a possibility? *laughing*

      • 97 Lady Cheetah August 22, 2014 at 13:39

        Well…maybe not a million but you do have a unique twist on how to present the movie than just a written review. Sounds like you need representation to get some exposure.

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:42

        Yes, that would help wonders. Well, if everyone just shares and likes the video something like that could happen. That’s what it takes. Shares and shares. At least, that’s what I’m told.

        Good point. Sometimes I don’t think it’s a review at all. I’m not sure what it is!

      • 99 Lady Cheetah August 22, 2014 at 13:42

        Oh um naw. Spiderman no matter how many sequels just sucks. I get the premise and all but it just doesn’t hold my attention and something about this new spidey man just creeps me out. Kinda gives me tge heebeegeebees.

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:43

        *laughing* Is it his skinny neck? That’s what Nick kept complaining about, you know.

      • 101 Lady Cheetah August 22, 2014 at 13:44

        Dude. Good point! Right along with that skinny creepy face….

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:49

        *laughing lots* And his voice.

  11. 103 L. Marie August 21, 2014 at 18:24

    Hilarious, Professor!!! So glad you’re doing these ripping reviews!
    You’re right–nothing makes sense! I totally agree with erinkenobi2893. Parker was an Anakin lookalike.

    • 104 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:29

      Many, many thanks, Linda!

      He was. Which is a wonder. Too bad they didn’t give him a lightsaber, you know. That would have been cool, huh?

  12. 105 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 21, 2014 at 18:13

    I adore Spiderman! Yes, I agree, they should employ you as the namer of all remake movies, Duke! You couldn’t be more righter!!

    Enjoyed seeing you again and you fit in nicely with the other white suits! Who did the silly voices of the missing scene? They were fantastic! Haha!

    Poor Spiderman….MM thinks he’s too skinny. He’s fine! Lizard boy is so frightening and yes, bauld sorta like MM. *hides behind Duke*

    Such a treat to see you…be careful we’ll get used to it, Professor. *sparkles*

    • 106 Manly Man (@JazzyCouldren) August 21, 2014 at 18:28

      Who done said I was bald? :}

      • 107 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 21, 2014 at 18:38

        Umm, I’ve seen your gravatar, MM. You’re bald…

      • 108 Manly Man (@JazzyCouldren) August 21, 2014 at 22:48

        Hey, that’s just my shadow. But maybe I is bald.

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:35

        Make up your mind!

      • 110 Manly Man (@JazzyCouldren) August 22, 2014 at 20:06

        :}

    • 111 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:28

      *laughs* But I’m not sure what I’d call this one. Hey, that’s a great idea, Audith. I should rename every movie we rip…

      Yes! I suppose I belong in that lab. I brushed my hair this time, you know. You mean the scene with Parker shaking his head?

      *laughing* He’s bald? I guess MM is… *laughing lots*

      What do you suppose should be done next?

      • 112 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 22, 2014 at 14:07

        You should rename them!! I would get the biggest laugh out of that, Duke. Think on it…Web-Designer…*giggle*

        I did notice…but I still can’t see your eyes. The scene with little Parker…

        What? So he isn’t. .tis just a shadow, then? *laughs* Oops, sorry, MM. Hugs! Am I forgiven?

        Rip Thor up at some point, for sure, I think.

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke August 23, 2014 at 16:32

        *laughs* That would be kinda cool!

        What if I’ve got red eyes? Oh…that was…

        MM would get cranky about things. He’s bald. Maybe. Some think Fats Henry is bald, but I don’t.

        That’d be a great one to do, you know!

      • 114 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 23, 2014 at 17:12

        Red eyes? *shrugs* No idea. I’ve never seen those before. Was you, I see.

        Fats Henry probably is bald. And a liar.

        I think so…are you only interested in manly movies?

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke August 24, 2014 at 17:37

        I’m the only case with them, I fear. Yes…it actually was this time. Which is rare, believe it or not.

        Goodness! *laughs* Look at you being wicked!

        No! Why?

      • 116 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 24, 2014 at 19:57

        Which is why we never get to see them, I suppose. How selfish of you… I thought maybe it was, you know.

        T’is true, Duketh.

        Well, because, I guess they have been so far, I think.

      • 117 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 13:33

        I think you know more about the professor than you let on! Don’t you? *squinty Susan eye look*

        Well, not at all! You see, we pick movies that are fairly new and have grossed a bunch. If you’d like, make a suggestion! The worse that could happen is that I’ll suffer for a few hours.

      • 118 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 25, 2014 at 14:57

        I only know what you tell me…which is mostly nothing. *shocked eyes* *flips her ponytail and kicks her bike tire*

        I thought I did…plus, its best if I’m a silent observer.

      • 119 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:35

        I tell you I’m the professor, though, so you know that, I think. A bike! It’s been ages since I rode a bike. You know, I used to ride down a large hill in the backyard–filled with holes and such. It was such fun.

        You mean the one you liked? Why is that, Audith?

      • 120 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 25, 2014 at 21:46

        Yes, I do know that, and that you prefer to be a shrub. Bikes are fun, Duke. You would go bouncing all the way down the hill, I bet. *giggles* I used to go fast down our gravel hill in front of our house, until Big Brother taught me how to skid. Then I went flying through the air and cartwheeling down the hill, as he forgot to mention that I only need to lightly slam on the brakes and swivel. I have a nice scar under my chin now. She’s pretty cute and hardly noticeable, but I shan’t ever forget it.

        Not sure, I think. Doubly!

      • 121 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:45

        Scars are great. I have a slight one under my eye. Or, at least, I did. Not sure if it’s there anymore. (Haven’t looked for it in a while.) I was going up to catch a football…and there was a fence post there. No! The ball was going over the fence, and I ran into the pull catching the ball. Something like that.

        Doubly? Well…what’s the title again?

      • 122 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 26, 2014 at 14:05

        I think you told me about that moment…you could have been seriously hurt, Duke. You should see if the scar is still there.

        Doesn’t have one. *wink* You do what you do best…I’ll watch.

      • 123 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 22:24

        I thought I might have. Yes…well, I can’t find it.

        *squinty eye Susan look* No title?

      • 124 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 27, 2014 at 00:11

        I bet its there. Look harder. I would search until I found your scar.

        Looking like Susan doesn’t scare me…she’s sweet. Unless you’re Susan…are you???
        Maybe, no title.

      • 125 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 13:53

        I only look in a mirror to shave, I fear.

        She is sweet! But the squinty eye look is like…what aren’t you tell me, sort of look. I am not!

        There is a title. Tell me.

      • 126 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 27, 2014 at 20:00

        Look then, Sir. Hello!!??!! Is it there or not? *pushes you*

        The stink eye?? Okay…just checking…

        No. You have enough to do.

      • 127 Professor VJ Duke August 28, 2014 at 13:26

        I can’t tell! Maybe a bit of something.

        Yes! *laughs* I love the stink eye.

        Not a good excuse. *waits patiently*

      • 128 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 28, 2014 at 20:53

        Thanks for checking. You’ve healed nicely, it seems.

        Me, too. I do it often at the beginning of the school year. Children shudder… *laughs*

        Anyway… I did love how fast you did the warning, BTW. You are definitely a faster speaker than I. I tried. I can’t go faster than you. You win. Haha!

      • 129 Professor VJ Duke August 28, 2014 at 23:29

        It seems so.

        I’d probably laugh. I’d be bad for the kids.

        On the ripio? That’s not me. That’s the VoiceMaster, you know. I wish I had an epic voice!

      • 130 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 29, 2014 at 04:30

        I’d laugh, as well. Those children would recover…

        Ahh. I see. So it is, sorry to have assumed it was you.

      • 131 Professor VJ Duke August 29, 2014 at 13:01

        I’m sure they probably would. But would the professor?

        Yes, sorry… You see, the studio really does have…others.

      • 132 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 29, 2014 at 13:34

        No, I would have to kick you out and cancel class.

        Yes, I’ve never doubted that, actually.

      • 133 Professor VJ Duke August 29, 2014 at 20:26

        Kick me out? I’d have my katana, you know!

        Yes…but you thought VM was me…

  13. 134 Susan P August 21, 2014 at 15:30

    Laughing! Spider Man isn’t supposed to make sense. Well put together and lots of action. Great job!

    • 135 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:21

      Thanks, Susan! It’s a speedy movie, isn’t it? Did you see the movie?

      • 136 Susan P August 22, 2014 at 13:55

        I’ve seen all of the Spider Man movies. :) The fast pace made me giggle.

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke August 23, 2014 at 16:09

        Which are you favorites? The professor would make the best Spiderman, btw.

      • 138 Susan P August 23, 2014 at 17:53

        Probably the first one. He was the first of the angst ridden super heroes I encountered.

      • 139 Professor VJ Duke August 24, 2014 at 17:41

        Yeah, I liked that one much better, too. The professor is angst ridden, you know. (I’m not sure why, but it sounds cool.)

      • 140 Susan P August 24, 2014 at 19:25

        Ah! I see. It makes you a person of interest.

      • 141 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 13:26

        Yes!!!! I’m a Person of Interest! I’m Jim!

      • 142 Susan P August 25, 2014 at 13:51

        A jim cracker?

      • 143 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:25

        What’s that?

      • 144 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:25

        What’s that?

      • 145 Susan P August 25, 2014 at 20:56

        ’tis an expression.

      • 146 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:35

        Of course I know about it.

      • 147 Susan P August 23, 2014 at 17:54

        How is that?

      • 148 Professor VJ Duke August 24, 2014 at 17:41

        Don’t I look like him?

      • 149 Susan P August 24, 2014 at 19:25

        Not terribly much. Why?

      • 150 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 13:27

        What do you mean??????????????

      • 151 Susan P August 25, 2014 at 13:52

        Well, you both have a nose, eyes, ears and a mouth. At least, I imagine you do. Though how they survive the shrub…

      • 152 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:26

        Oh, I’m only a shrub every fifth of december. I can jump like spidey!

      • 153 Susan P August 25, 2014 at 20:57

        You are truly a man of parts. *laughing*

      • 154 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:37

        *laughs* Yes…well, maybe. We can’t be sure.

      • 155 Susan P August 26, 2014 at 18:31

        I like things that are uncertain.

      • 156 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 22:27

        The professor mostly is.

  14. 157 Bethy August 21, 2014 at 15:07

    I laughed and laughed! This was great! Lizard hair! haha! (oh and yes you did say that too fast!)

    • 158 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:14

      Thanks, Bethy! *smiling really bigly* Yes, I worried about that. But if it’s slowed down…I think it works out rather well… The whole ripio moves fast, doesn’t it?

      • 159 Bethy August 25, 2014 at 12:23

        It does work out well. Except for my ears…they don’t listen that fast. Just means I get to watch it several times *smile*

      • 160 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 13:37

        Yeah, you know, I had to watch it a few times to get it. And I was involved in the writing! I’m insane, I think.

      • 161 Bethy August 27, 2014 at 09:33

        haha. Maybe you are. Or maybe we all are and you are just normal?

      • 162 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 13:59

        That’s a possibility. Let’s not think on it. It’s muddling the mind.

      • 163 Bethy September 1, 2014 at 17:15

        Good plan!

      • 164 Professor VJ Duke September 2, 2014 at 00:58

        *bows* I usually don’t have many.

  15. 165 PorterGirl August 21, 2014 at 14:58

    Fabulous! I mean, really, really fabulous. And you are looking good as ever, Professor! The analysts are great too. I cannot praise the team highly enough.

    I bow, humble, in your astonishing presence.

    • 166 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:13

      *smiles bigly* Many thanks! I think the white suit makes me look like Twain, but the hair isn’t quite right. Which is a bother. I think it needs dyed and then…sorta combed up or something.

      No! *laughing* It was the Studio. They’re amazing. Any movie you’d like to see next?

      • 167 PorterGirl August 22, 2014 at 13:25

        The white suit is fabulous, I really like it. I know what you mean about the hair – you do have a rather Frank Zappa look going on there. Which is no bad thing, really.

        Well I bow to the Studio, then! Hmm, which film next? I will have to think on that, Professor. I will let you know if any spring to mind.

      • 168 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:41

        Oh boy! Now that you say it…wow! Didn’t even think about that. Well, I’m just glad I can pull it off when I don’t want it. It tickles, you know! Dreadful.

        Yes, please. But don’t worry about it. We’ll figure something out that’ll be dadblamery!

      • 169 PorterGirl August 22, 2014 at 14:48

        It tickles? I like things that tickle but not when they tickle for too long. I am certainly glad that you can pull it off!

        I hardly watch any films because I get bored of enarly all of them after about half an hour. I have a very short attention span. Also, I get hungry and tend to wander off…

      • 170 Professor VJ Duke August 23, 2014 at 16:40

        Me too! Yes, it does. Horrid stuff. I don’t know how ladies wear it long!

        *laughing* I understand that! I wouldn’t be watching any of these movies if it wasn’t for ripios!

      • 171 PorterGirl August 24, 2014 at 15:53

        *big laughing*

      • 172 Professor VJ Duke August 24, 2014 at 17:51

        ==]:-{)+

  16. 173 erinkenobi2893 August 21, 2014 at 14:48

    That was great, Professor! I laughed several times… It made my day. :-) ESPECIALLY THE PART WITH THE LIZARD WITH HAIR! X-D
    Another problem–they made Peter Parker into an Anakin look-alike! >:-/ I very much prefer the shy-looking, nerdy previous incarnation. :-P
    I enjoyed this very much. Thanks. :-D

    • 174 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:11

      That’s awesome! And your comment made my day. Dreadlocks on a lizard! Didn’t it improve his looks?

      Good point. He did seem like Anakin–a lot! In fact, they lost the whole nerdy kid thing, huh?

      Thank you, Erin!

      • 175 erinkenobi2893 August 22, 2014 at 13:21

        :-D
        And yes, it did. X-P
        Yeah… I guess people just have mixed opinions on this movie. There are some people who like Anakin, though I’ve never heard anyone who liked him as a rebellious, hormone-charged teenager! :-P
        :-D

      • 176 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:40

        Was Anakin a teen in the movies? I don’t remember.

        Wasn’t the lizard’s voice awful?

      • 177 erinkenobi2893 August 22, 2014 at 15:53

        In Attack of the Clones.
        And yes, it was. Like Grievous, only with some Nazgul thrown in. :-P

      • 178 Professor VJ Duke August 23, 2014 at 16:47

        Oh, okay.

        Yes! Exactly. And a bit corny, I thought.

      • 179 erinkenobi2893 August 23, 2014 at 17:07

        :-P

  17. 180 FictionFan August 21, 2014 at 14:07

    Brilliant as always, Prof. Great effects, and frumpy is such a great word!

    • 181 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:09

      It is, isn’t it? I think I’ll have to use it on someone at some point. But I’m not sure who!

      • 182 FictionFan August 22, 2014 at 22:13

        LottieOllie?

      • 183 Professor VJ Duke August 23, 2014 at 16:52

        What is a frump exactly, FEF?

      • 184 FictionFan August 23, 2014 at 17:00

        Someone who dresses dowdily. So, as an example, a women who would prefer to dance in baggy cargo pants and a baseball cap, as opposed to a glamorous silken ballgown, bejewelled tiara and pretty silver dancing shoes…

        Which do you think LottieOllie would prefer?

      • 185 Professor VJ Duke August 24, 2014 at 17:35

        *laughs* Oh… Lottie would want the ball gown, I fear. (My spellcheck makes that two words. Not sure why.) Which would you prefer?

  18. 186 Simply Skeptical August 21, 2014 at 14:03

    Hoot! Hoot! And Goodness me! This is head spinning! What a ride of hysterical perceptions as only the professor and team could compile! I have to watch it at least a dozen more times to catch all the genius!

    Bravo to the crew for another entertaining exhilarating Rippio. As usual can’t wait for the next one. What shall it be????

    • 187 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:08

      Haha. Yes, it does go quickly. I mean, really quickly. But, madam, that is fine, I think. The professor is just a speedy beast.

      Any suggestions?
