The fight scenes are way better than the Tobey's 3 movies.

In regards to your spoilered bit, they're trying to distinguish this movie from the original. Follow the comic books too closely and you're also making it too similar to the original.

Really liked the movie but I agree with how careful the director was in trying not to completely rip off the original movies

The 90's era was filled with unrealistically buff characters. Every superhero had a 6 pack or higher.



Look at Magneto. His arm is almost as big as his head!

I agree that spiderman is supposed to be skinny. Remember, reason why Spider-man was so popular is he is an average, every day joe with with average every day problems. More than that he was a KID superhero, who at the time were always side-kicks to the real stars. For socially-awkward kids growing up, it doesn't get more relatable than that.

I haven't seen this movie yet but I'll try to go into it with the old spiderman movies out of my head as much as possible.

Just taking a trip down memory lane... Going through all the covers from when I was reading comics breifly between 1991-1993 or so... My favourites were the Wolverine series, drawn by Mark Texaira



#65, I remember that issue.. had a scene where Wolverine got his eye ripped out

Watched this the other day and I agree that it's 100x better than Tobey Macguire/Kirsten Dunst. I honestly hate that trilogy with the first movie being somewhat acceptable.

I don't know about anyone else, but it bugged the shit out of me that the web came straight out of Toby's wrists rather than being a cartridge as it should be and was in the comics/animated series. There were many situations where Spidey simply ran out of webs.

Some people would argue that it's more realistic that Spidey could make webs with his wrists.. uh NO. If he had webs coming from his body in a realistic manner, it'd be coming out of his ass.

Anyways, the acting and the story in this reboot were MUCH better and Emma Stone is a hotty

I highly recommend watching this movie





oh, and Dunst is a fucking pork chop. she was terrible as MJ.

There was a recent (2004-2005) publication of Avengers: Disassembled where Spider-Man turns into a spider, and upon recovery, can shoot organic webbing instead of using the web shooters. Granted, this was after the movies were made.

Either way, glad to hear this one is keeping closer to the comics. I'm not huge into comics, but I've always been a fan of superheroes.

Guess I'm the only one who liked Raimi's Spiderman more. It was like Garfield was trying too hard to be angsty and emotional in the origin. I liked the light hearted moments of Raimi's which only Tobey McGuire could do well. The relationship trio of Peter, Harry, and Mary-jane made things more interesting, and the Peter, Uncle Ben, and Aunt May relationship was more heart felt in Raimi's, especially Peter and Aunt May. There's also the lack of J. Jonah Jameson, probably a role that noone other than J.K Simmons can fill.

Normally I'd say to each their own, but if you think the Peter/Ben/May story was better in the Raimi original...

Also, in regards to Garfield's Parker being too "emo"...

I'm just comparing the two first installments, ignore the 2nd and 3rd.

The scene with Peter and Ben talking in the car, then Ben dying and holding hands through the death, and the subsequent rage man hunt & thief realization hits way harder than the this movie's equivalent imo. In Raimi's, you have Peter telling Aunt May how much he misses Ben, and Peter visiting Aunt May in the hospital, etc. which makes them seem much closer as a family.
Spoiler!

OK I didn't get that at all. I think Martin Sheen's portrayal of Ben was so good, it was much more emotional when he died. At least it was for me

Yay so im not the only one that liked the original better..

I have to Agree with Racepace.. it wasn't very emotional i didnt feel very connected to uncle Sam nor was i convinced that Andrew Garfield's Character cared about him either..

that whole part of the movie felt very rushed..

unfortunately Raimi has fucked the franchise up so bad, people can't tell what a good/faithful Spider-man is anymore

Sorry bump old thread. I'm very late but I just watched it.

Emotional connection + death scene in Raimi's Spiderman was better. I remember tearing up a bit when Uncle Ben died.

Like some others mentioned, I felt the Parkers as a closer family than Amazing Spiderman.

Peter leans on Aunt May's support a lot but he was quite distant from her in this one.

Also he didn't handle the death of his uncle as much as I thought he would.


I'm guessing they really wanted to keep it different than the first one.



I gotta say I like Garfield as Spiderman more and the action scenes and wide angle web slinging was way better than the Raimi's!


Oh and how could they cut out the most famous line in Marvel history from the movie! I thought they'd have him say it at the end during the voicemail scene.
