Our Amazing “Amazing Spider-Man Movie Night”

My husband is kind of a self-proclaimed geek when it comes to comic book movies, so when I told him that I had received an advance copy of The Amazing Spider-Man DVD (a full week before its November 9 release date), he got pretty excited. (You may remember from my Men in Black 3 blog entry that we haven’t been to the movie theater in a little over two years, so this was one of those movies he’d been dying to see.)

To make our movie night extra special, we decided to go to Walmart to purchase one of their MarketSide pizzas and a few other things for our Amazing Spider-man event. A pizza party and a fun superhero movie? I’m not a comic book geek, but even I was excited about that!

We both love the MarketSide pizzas. They’re packaged like frozen pizzas, but they’re not frozen, which is why you’ll find them in a chilled section next to the deli. The pizzas are fresher than frozen pizzas, larger than frozen pizzas, and surprisingly affordable (only about $8).amazing spider-manWe didn’t need to buy a Spider-man movie because we got an advanced copy already, but we wanted to go “check out” the movies anyway. Walmart had a pre-order version of The Amazing Spider-man which included a limited-edition mask gift set!amazing spider-manLike our MIB3 experience, the pre-order version allowed you to watch a digital copy of the movie on Vudu (at Vudu.com, of course) and receive a DVD or Blu-ray copy in the mail. It’s worth noting that Vudu uses Ultraviolet (UV), which stores your digital movies in a magical cloud so you don’t have to put them on your computer and can access them anywhere at any time.

The real fun took place back at home. As you can see from the pictures below, the pizza looked incredible and tasted just as good. We bought some sugar cookies at Walmart and my husband surprised me by putting some spiders on them while the pizza was cooking. Isn’t he crafty?! We also picked up a Spider-man t-shirt at Walmart for our little Spider-gal (for only five bucks, how could I resist?).Amazing Spider-Man

Here’s the part where my husband’s inner comic book geek – a side of him I was barely familiar with before now – really got excited. If you download the Web Slinger app on your iPhone or Android, you can activate some pretty cool “augmented reality” games by opening the app and holding your phone over the movie box or the pizza box.

The web shooter pulls up your camera and allows you to shoot a “web” at objects simply by touching the screen. By opening the app and hovering over the movie, you can interact with Spider-Man and by hovering over the pizza box, you can interact with the lizard. Hover over them both and you can help Spider-Man battle the lizard! You can also put your face in a custom-made Spider-man comic book (scanning Spider-Man signs in Walmart using the app will unlock extra pages of the comic book). My husband was like a kid in a candy shop when it came to this part of our movie night experience.
