As the son of a cook, he once dreamed to be a good cook like his father. As a famous actor, he just tries to live a peaceful and happy life. Now the man, Tobey Maguire is welcoming his 37th birthday. To many people, Tobey Maguire would still be a normal man if he hadn’t acted as Spider-Man.
However, the fact is that the Spider-Man Tobey Maguire had gained good reputations before his performance in Spider-Man trilogy. Comparing to other super-stars, Tobey owns much less movie works. However, this smart young man can always surprise the world with his excellent performance.
Besides the Spider-Man series, Maguire also cooperated with other famous actors or directors in Tobey Maguire movies. Therefore, to help Spider-Man fans to celebrate the birthday of Spider-Man Tobey Maguire, this post will present three impressive images in Tobey Maguire movies.
1. Humble and confused superhero
The superhero present by Tobey Maguire in Spider-Man trilogy is different from other superheroes. Neither as ambitious as Superman nor as irritating as Hulk, Spider-Man is more a man with stronger power than a superhero. Just like Tobey Maguire, Spider-Man is a peace lover because he only fights back when he has to.
In the Spider-Man trilogy, our superhero is a confused man. In Spider-Man, he is confused and even afraid of his power. He doesn’t know what to do with himself. In Spider-Man 2, the superhero is so confused about his future and love that he unconsciously lost all his power. In Spider-Man 3, the hero is again lost after he gets the strange black suit.
However, the humble and confused image of Spider-Man is impressive because Maguire owns those qualities as well. On the release of Spider-Man 2, Tobey even asked the theater to turn off the light so that he could site among audience without being notices.
2. Compassionate doctor
Previously to Spider-Man movies, Tobey Maguire gained good reputations in a movie named The Cider House Rule. With the cooperation between Tobey and Charlize Theron, The Cider House Rule gained several Academy Awards. As for Tobey, he got several nominations for his image as a compassionate doctor in the film.
In The Cider House Rule, Homer is a skilled but unlicensed doctor who grows up in an orphanage. In order to see the world, he decides to leave the household and works in a cinder house. There he experiences love, war and agony. In the end, the compassionate doctor Homer decides to return to the orphanage.
3. Brave solider
Ride with the Devilis movie directed by a Chinese director Ang Lee in 1999. Unlike other Civil War movies, Ride with the Devil focused more attention on the Bushwhackers, irregulars loyal to the South. It tells a story of how a boy named Jake Roedel joins the Bushwhackers and become a brave solider in a few months. However, as he witnesses the behaviors of the Bushwhackers, he decides to leave them.
It was said that DiCaprio once wanted be act as Jake. However, the director thought Tobey was more qualified for the role after their cooperation in The Ice Storm. Jake is a character that is not only brave and strong but also kind of violent. However, Spider-Man Tobey Maguire had proved that he could be a tough guy as well in Ride with the Devil.
Those are the three impressive roles in Tobey Maguire movies. With the wonderful image of a superhero, a doctor and a soldier, Tobey had proved himself a qualified actor. For those who want to watch those movies via mobiles on Tobey’s birthday, they can convert those DVDs with DVD Ripper.
