For my first time using Google Alerts I found it an easy and convenient tool to use. One of the Google Alerts I subscribed to was for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The new photo of Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin. The photo looks amazing and so far Dane DeHaan has impressed me in everything I have seen him in. Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn and the Green Goblin, from what I have seen, seems to be a good fit. DeHann, in previous roles, has done the villainous role extremely well and can give fans of the franchise faith that this new instalment will be good.
One issue I have with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is that, at the moment, it seems like Sony is releasing too much from the movie. With the all the trailers and new footage as well as the photos coming out it seems to be revealing too much about the film. It is just a marketing strategy from Sony to keep people talking about the film but some things I would prefer not to know until seeing the film.
As far as the Google Alerts system, it seems to be a good way to keep up to date with things that interest you. It is very convenient with an e-mail being sent to you with the days news on that topic.
