Our Viewing Party for the Amazing Spider-Man! #cbias #spidermanwmt

If you remember, just over a month ago I shared that I would be watching The Amazing Spider-man movie before it hit stores, thanks to a pre-order at Walmart! Well, the time has come! On October 30th, I was emailed that The Amazing Spider-man was now available for me to watch on Vudu.com so that meant it was time for a viewing party! First, I made a trip to Walmart to pick up one of their Marketside pizzas and a few other snacks. As the official launch gets closer, Walmart will have the Amazing Spider-Man themed Augmented Reality triggers included on the pizza box & display pallet, triggering special Amazing Spider-Man experiences on your iPhone, iPad or Android in-store. When I was shopping at my local Wal-mart, they already had some of the Spider-man pizza boxes available!

As I was heading to check out, I saw Mr. Snowman, decked out in his hunting gear and ready to get a deer! I feel like I wouldn’t see this up north. Only in the south, right?!

A few days later, it was finally time for our viewing party. We had a stuffed-crust pepperoni pizza (that I added even more pepperoni to before baking it) to eat prior to watching the movie, as well as boiled peanuts and leftover Halloween candy to munch on during the movie :) .

No one wanted their picture taken while eating, but Luke was a good sport about it!

Once we finished eating, everyone just vegged out on the couch and got ready to watch the movie (and eat way too much candy and boiled peanuts, of course!).

Without spoiling the movie, here are a couple of pictures of it playing through the computer. We quickly realized that it would be better to play it through the TV so that everyone could see it better, and be able to really enjoy the movie.  I know I definitely enjoyed the movie and would recommend it to others. It’s become my favorite Spider-man movie thus far!

  1. My son already put this movie on his Christmas list. I have no idea what Vudu.com is. I’ll have to check it out. My boys will want to check out all the Spiderman stuff at Walmart now! lol And as for the hunting snowman, we’ve got it here in MN, too! We’re a big hunting state!

  2. My kid loved this movie! Sounds like you had a great party, I love pizza/movie get togethers. And that snowman is a hoot!

  3. My hubby and son can’t wait to see this. And on a side note – BOILED peanuts? I NEVER heard of that, I wonder how they taste?

    • Danielle,

      You’re kidding, right?! You’ve NEVER had boiled peanuts? Oh my gosh – they are a staple down here in the south! Side note: You DO NOT eat the shell. Haha! My uncle was just telling us a story last night about them eating boiled peanuts with some friends of theirs who had never had them and the friends just stuck the whole thing in and chewed it up – definitely not what you’re supposed to do, LOL. You should try them – so yummy! Just get some fresh peanuts, a big pot of water, and boil for a while (be sure to salt them really good while cooking).

  4. Ahahaha that Frosty the Snowman with a gun is cracking me up! As a West coaster, the boiled peanuts thing is new to me too. I’m going to have to try this! Fun party!

  5. What a fun party!

  6. I love the actors in this version of Spider-Man…can’t wait to see it!
