I rented the BD from Redbox yesterday and watched it last night. At first, I was turned off by all the preposterousness but finally realized that this is a comic book film. After I did that and started to go with the flow with respect to its silliness, I had a lot of fun. The film could not have looked or sounded better and its talented ensemble cast somehow managed to breathe a little life into what seemed to me to be the dumbest screenplay in recent memory. Bottom line, though, I liked it and was glad I rented the BD. 8 Stars out of 10.

I watch this now lol been very busy for work. There is still Spider-Man's personal turmoil, crises of romance and loyalty, that Webb occasionally holds a few beats too long. Yet the performances ring true, with arresting chemistry where it counts.

my lovey

Interesting how many people give this movie a passing grade. I thought the first was just okay, this one fails on many levels with one being the awful screenplay.

If you like CGI and wire work then this is your movie.

I thought the first Amazing Spider-Man was little more than a tedious, almost frame by frame, retelling of the original Toby Maguire version. Amazing Spider-Man 2 seemed a lot fresher to me so, despite its weaknesses, I liked it far better that its predecessor.

It's entertaining. But comes up short for me because I (still) think they rushed the Gwen/Goblin storyline; should've held it back for the next installment.

But the Goblin story doesn't seem to be over. And since Emma Stone is signed for 3 or 4 movies, I wonder what they're going to come up with in the third film...

I haven't read the comics, just "wiki'd" a bit... All I can say is that they do have options...

Check this:




I used to have this issue; wish I still had it. Classic. Johnny Romita was the best Spidey artist ever.

But Gil Kane (2nd-best Spidey artist) actually pencils the epic issue.

Busted open my copy and watched this tonight. It was alright. My kids seemed to enjoy it. I do like this Peter Parker over Tobey's. I'm glad they finally gave Spidey his wise-cracking attitude back. If I want to see a mopey kid I'll ask mine to clean their rooms.
