I’ve never heard of discussion guides for block buster movies before, so I was excited to have the chancge to check out the “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” Family Discussion Guide. The guide is five pages long and takes you and your family through different questions relating the theme of the film and the power of good and evil. The first thing in the guide is the Bible verse, Matthew 6:4. The one about serving two masters.
The first discussion is about our “powers” and how we can use them for good. it also addresses what it’s like to see someone use their power for evil. The second discussion about how each of us are important to this world and goes on from there. The rest of the guide follows the same pattern. A Bible verse, a bit about the movie and how it it all relates to us.
It’s a short guide but a really fun one to do with the family. It takes a mainstream, block buster movie and makes it into a thought provoking discussion with your family.
