The Amazing Spider-Man ★★★½

This time around, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) seems more reckless, which in turn makes him more weighed down by guilt - Thus making him a fun Spider-Man to watch. Fixing his wrongdoing with superhuman acrobatics and fast webslinging has never been more entertaining. Sure, the plot points are similar to Sam Raimi's Spider-Man, but with the introduction of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) as Peter Parker's first love AND secrets from Peter's past somewhat revealed, the content in this package shines like it should have done ten years ago.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2? Yes, please.
