Just got back from Amazing Spider-Man (I don't know how/why, the theatres here started showing it at 8pm today)....I'm not sure it offered enough extra to warrant a reboot, but still an enjoyable Spider-Man movie. There's an extra scene mid credits, interested to hear any spideyphiles guess on the identity of the guy who visits Connors in jail. Mine is the Spot, 1 because he came and left without a trace, and 2. he was drawing circles in his hat, a nod to his name? Anyway, that's my guess, though really, with all of his rogues, that's who's getting setup? The Spot?
Just got back from an early screening as well. I liked it better than the original movies, but they really should have skipped the origin story. No need to go over something that everyone already knows about.
But even with it's faults, I stilled enjoyed it. And it does have my favorite Stan Lee cameo out of all the Marvel films.
Things I liked: Garfield, generally. Emma Stone. Webslinging. That crane sequence brought a lump to my throat. The humour. The fact he's not got a whiny voice like Maguire. Emma Stone.
Things I didn't like: Dear god, his weird smile! The webbing (seriously? An Oscorp invention? Well, guess how the Green Goblin is gonna track him down...). The fact a kid who's good at DIY can suddenly make webshooters (I know, I know, just like the comics). How cool Peter is all of a sudden (he dressed cooler than any nerd I know..I just didn't see him as the cool nerd, but the geek nerd).
