The whole "parents" storyline is in the newer Ultimate Spider-Man series from the 2000s.

Instead we get people who hate it and try to get others to hate it as well. (not implying that you are). Why can't people just express their opinions good or bad without having to say that 3d must die or 3d must stay. It's much better when we have options and that's what we have at the moment. If you like 3d (good) if you hate 3d (good) just don't say that one should go and one should stay.

Mucho truth in this post. I'll add that the new female lead wasn't as good as Kirsten's Dunst's portrayal of Mary Jane in the first Spidey film, but much better than Dunst's character in the third one.

Overall, the movie was too long; they spent too much time on re-telling the origin of Spidey so the movie was lacking in meaningful action until the third act.

See..I did not mind the re-telling...in part due to this version sticking a bit more (in most repsects) to the original story - and also tossing in the angle about Pete's parents that came up in Ultimate Spider Man a few years ago. Made me forget the Sam Raimi trilogy...which for me is a very good thing.

While the parent side-story was an interesting new angle, I'm referring to all the other familiar fat on the bone that took too long to develop:

Minor spoilers (Click to show)
Establishing Parker as a science nerd, him being bullied at school before eventually humiliating the bully with his newfound powers, the clumsy attempts to get attention from the pretty girl, the science lab experiment gone wrong to give him his powers, the argument with the uncle, the random theft by a thug which Parker ignores that leads to his uncle's death, the early failed attempts to control his new powers, the evolution of getting his costume...

...because most of us know the general outcome of these plot points going into the movie, there is absolutely zero suspense. It took a long time to get past Spiderman 101 before the movie got going.

Batman Begins handled the retelling of Wayne's origins a lot better IMHO. They quickly explained his relationship with his dad and how he was killed. However hallf of that initial act was about training and fighting with ninjas in the snowy mountains. Simply put, the first act of The Amazing Spiderman needed more ninjas. Or vikings, or amazons or something.

Waboman and I agree. I saw The Amazing Spiderman today and gave it 6 Stars out of 10. Its production values are of the highest order, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone were both excellent, and one of my favorite character actors, C. Thomas Howell, showed up in a minor role. The bad news is that, at 136 minutes, the film was far too long, which resulted in too little happening over the course of too much time. Seeing The Amazing Spiderman wasn't a wasted afternoon but it wasn't an especially well spent one, either. As you may recall, I don't much like 3D so I saw the film in 2D.

Not to beat a dead horse but I think most would have predicted that a reboot as premature as The Amazing Spider Man was would likely result in a big budget disappointment. The first sixty percent of the film told a familiar story, so it lacked any suspense whatever.

I'm not a big fan of 3D either, but I saw the film today and it was shot in 3D, and really that's the way it should be seen. I saw it in IMAX and the flyover shots of Manhattan in 3D were just stellar.

With one exception, I have hated the 3D version of every movie I have seen in that format. The exception was Avatar, which I understand was filmed with actual 3D cameras. Was The Amazing Spiderman shot with 3D cameras too? If so, I may have to see it again in 3D IMAX.

Amazing Spider-man was shot in 3D. But if you intend on seeing it in IMAX 3D you better go quick, Dark Knight will replace it in less than 2 weeks.

Good website to know what movie is native or faux (post-processed) 3D.

{hand raised}> another one here who silently kept most of my dislike for Raimi's spidey through out the years. I knew from the beg it was dead when they casted uber goober lame duck Tobey. I watched the all of them anyways hoping it would turn around or have other redeeming values but nope.

Catching it today. If the 3D looks as good as Journey 2's it should look pretty spectacular (although Journey looked horrific in 2D!)! I'm guessing it wouldn't hurt to make it to the show late since its another retelling of the origin...yawn!

Saw it yesterday in IMAX 3-D ($17 tix). It's been a long time since I saw Toby's Spidy, but I think I liked this one better. Probably due to another decade of advancement in CGI technology and capability. Some of the web swinging scenes were really breathtaking. Didn't think 3-D added much of anything, and I hate wearing the glasses over my real glasses. I'm about done with the 3-D fad and its related super-sized ticket prices. Let it die and wake me when we have true three dimensional holographic projections that don't require special eyewear.

All in all, a good summertime popcorn flick IMO.

gwsat, didn't like the acting of the Lizard. The movie seems juvenile. I should have just watched on my new LG 3D TV. The batman for sure was shot in 3D and with great storyline. A must watch in IMAX 3D.

If you are talking about The Dark Knight Rises, it was not shot in 3D, just 2d (although 60mins of it was shot in IMAX).

...I'm seeing The Amazing Spider-Man in IMAX 3D this afternoon, looking forward to it as I was never fond of Raimi's version.

I saw the new spidey movie recently and overall I was dissapointed. I agree that Emma was a waaay better actress than that cross-eyed chick. I felt that the story/funny lines weren't as good as Raimi's. The bully scene in the new one was pretty lame. I would take the original one over the new one any day. IMHO.

But I know I get the blashphemy tag when I say I hated The Sam Raimi Spidey flicks. For me, the reboot should have occured in 2003, not 2012.

Love Rami's other work, but have to agree. I thought his trilogy was dreck that just got worse the longer they had to do it.

Saw this the other night. Slightly annoyed at the run time and having to go through an hour and 15 of origin that has been done to death in comics, movies and cartoons. But in the end it was done well, even with way to much teen angst thrown in for todays audiences. A bit overuse in CGI for my tastes, but the action and choreography was excellent. And I'm not sure why stone was wearing knee highs in just about every freaking scene, but that is not one of my complaints!

When Parker was being Spidey it was spot on. There's a good foundation here for a sequel to go somewhere new(ish) with both Parket and a good take on Spiderman.

I thought they missed a huge opportunity for Peter to say to the releved father after Spidy had rescued his kid on the bridge: "Who am I? Why, I'm your friendly, neighborhood Spiderman." Talk about an applause line! That scene was perfectly set up for one of the iconic Spiderman catch-phrases. Tobey might have had a tough time pulling it off, but Garfield could have delivered it perfectly.

I've often daydreamed that I'd be perfect for the job of a Hollywood script doctor. How do you apply for one of those? tongue.gif

Like you, I thought the one hour plus reprisal of the Spiderman backstory was a bore and hurt the film. After that, though, it was a lot of fun. Garfield was outstanding as Peter Parker, as was Emma Stone as Gwen.

Thing is, if the other trilogy wasn't so new, it probably wouldn't be an issue.

Next flick get over the HS angst, but keep the nerdy and witty humor and you got yourself a perfect Spiderman movie. Garfield really did do a great job owning the role in the second half.

Although it had its strong points, I thought that The Amazing Spider Man fell well short of being fantastic and wonderful. I though the boring one hour plus reprisal of the back story at the beginning of the film all but sunk it. I gave it 6 Stars out of 10 when I voted on IMDb. That may be too low and I may raise it to 7 Stars but certainly no more than that.

You know, I didn't mind the backstory at all. When they re-make 'Titanic' in a few years (and you know they will), I'm betting they revisit the iceberg too. wink.gif

At least they finally got the mechanical web-shooters right. That bugged me to pieces in the Toby Trilogy (as I've come to call it).

In most ways I liked the Maguire films best but that was mostly because they were fresh and new. That said, I think that Andrew Garfield is a better actor than Maguire, so I liked Garfield's performance as Spiderman better than Maguire's.

At least they finally got the mechanical web-shooters right. That bugged me to pieces in the Toby Trilogy (as I've come to call it).
The backstory reprise bothered me because it took so much time to tell the same story as the first Maguire Spiderman film, which was released only 10 years ago. I was therefore bored because the tale was so familiar. I ended up thinking that it had been a waste of over an hour. After that, though, the film got much better. I am really looking forward to the sequel.
