It was okay I guess. I'm always annoyed by that character in every superhero movie (in this case Denis Leary) who believes the superhero, who happens to be catching criminals, is actually a "menace" and he must be stopped! Ugh! Such an annoying cliché. Anyway, I like looking at Emma Stone a lot more than Kirsten Dunst. And I must say that Martin Sheen is looking more like Spencer Tracy all the time. XD

In 2002, Sam Raimi released his take on Spider-Man, the ever-popular comic book superhero. Upon release, it was praised in many aspects, and was a massive box office success. Two years later, a sequel was released to even more positive acclaim and the title of "one of the best superhero movies of all time." However, Raimi missed his mark with Spider-Man 3, which was a box office success, but received mixed reviews from critics. Spider-Man 4 fell into Development Hell,…
Imagine being a spider on the wall at Colombia Pictures and overhearing the following conversation between various movie execs (the collective noun for which would be a bastard of movie execs):
ME1: You know what I like more than money? More money.
ME2: For sure. What was the last franchise that gave us more money?
ME1: Oh yeah - that paid for me to build my mansion entirely out of crack cocaine
ME2: For sure. I bought an…
Oh mah DOG this thing iz unwatchible KARP. It is like some kind of half-asleep twelve-year-old's spec script except they went and made it in to a very bad movie. Nothing about this film is any good at all except Emma Stone is soooper cute and funny. She does what she can with some terrible lines, but there's far too little of her. Dennis Leary is also not bad, but he's not especially good. Not much saving that character, I'm…

With the exception of the second Raimi movie, I find this to be the best spider-man movie yet. I find Andrew Garfield to be the superior Spider-man (pardon the pun) and Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy was a better love interest than Kirsten Dunst's MJ and they really stepped up on the action.
My expectations for this reboot were low. Spider-Man isn't exactly my favorite of the Marvel heroes (I suspect the dance scene is to blame for this (you know exactly what I'm talking about)), but The Amazing Spider-Man is kind of fantastic.
I mean, I liked the 2002 Spider-Man, but The Amazing Spider-Man is a lot better. A lot better.
Andrew Garfield does an amazing (pardon the pun) job of portraying Peter Parker, and his supporting cast are great as well.…
Surprised the shit out of me.
