Til Kingdom Come


X&Y / The Amazing Spider-Man Soundtrack

There are moments in every great film that hook you. You get sentimental or you get chills or you cannot keep from smiling. The Amazing Spider-man was filled with these moments for me, but there was a scene in particular that brought out all three.

The scene I am talking about is when Peter Parker sets up his first date with Gwen Stacy while at school. After leaving, he goes out to skateboard and test his newly acquired spider skills. This perfect moment is set to the song “Til Kingdom Come” by the band Coldplay, which was a hidden track on their 2005 album X&Y and was written in commemoration of the late and great Johnny Cash. No matter when you add a Coldplay song (or The Fray for that matter) to any cinematic moment it usually makes it better, but this pushes the scene beyond any other moment in the film and makes it one of the best scenes in any film this year.
