The last one was terrible and I'm not a fan of the actor playing Parker, that said this actually looks worth seeing. When will we move past this obsession with the milk-toast emo kid bad guy thing?

I skipped the first one....Spidey's origins was already done years ago with TMcG.

I thought The Amazing Spider Man was a few thousand times better than Raimi's film(s). Andrew Garfield is much more convincing as Parker/Spidey than Maguire who didn't seem to know which kind of movie he was in, and Emma Stone was, also, miles better than Kirsten Dunst as Spidey's love interest. I'm very much looking forward to the sequel.

I liked both versions almost equally; however, it took a few viewings of TAS for me to come around. They just tell different stories and I'm good with that. After repeated viewings I do feel Garfield gives a bit of a better portrayal of the character but honestly, I'm not sure that opinion is not influenced by McGuire's 2nd and 3rd installments, which I'm trying not to consider for this post since TAS only has one release to date. Kirsten Dunst I thought was a terrible choice, equal to that of Batman Begins. That being said I'm looking forward to #2 hoping for consistency and fluidity with the first And I'm very much interested in Jamie Fox's portrayal of Electro.

He's got to be better than Ah-nold as Mr. Freeze, right? *burrrrr*

ok master oink, this articly is stupid. There. I said it. No shame. wink.gif
Take any action movie and I'm 200% sure you can find supposedly "odd" similarities between shots... And the guy once again is basing his judgement on a trailer. Which is of course the only way to judge a movie he hasn't seen.

Just rent the damn thing already! biggrin.gif

(I know it just gives somewhat of an indication, but RT is 73% fresh for The Amazing Spider Man as well).

Rotten Tomatoes has it's usefulness. When trying to determine how to spend your limited entertainment dollars, as when deciding to buy almost any consumer item, metadata is your friend. One man's (or critic's) opinion does not a purchase decision make, but hundreds or thousands of them, that's another story.

But you can fool most of the people, most of the time.

I would disagree with that. My personal opinion is that you can fool some of the people most of the time, or most of the people some of the time. And then there's that subset of humanity that you can fool pretty much all of the time. I'd define that group further, but then this post would probably disappear rather quickly. wink.gif

I agree that Rotten Tomatoes is a useful resource if it's used wisely. The consensus of the collected reviews is certainly not the definitive answer to a movie's quality. On the other hand, those who actually read the reviews collected there that were written by respected critics might gain useful insights into a film. I don't know why so many are reflexively hostile to RottenTomatoes. We see the same hostility to IMDb and Wikipedia. Obviously, the data collected by such sites shouldn't be accepted without analysis but the mere fact that so much is collected in one place is a good thing, it seems to me.

Although I didn't much like Spider Man 1, I may give the sequel a chance. The first film seemed to me to be an almost slavish retelling of the earlier Toby Maguire films and I thought it was Boooorrrring. At least a sequel should actually give us something new this time.

Sorry guys...I couldn't find the correct thread.

The other day I saw The Amazing Spiderman listed on one of the premium movie channels and decided to record it rather than wait for NF.

Watched the first 25 minutes and erased the recording, after I realized I probably should get the BD.
Anyway, tonite I watched the Sony BD and am content I made the correct decision.

This Spidey really is different from the Raimi version (which I loved BTW).
I was afraid it would be same ol' same ol'....
Fortunately, it is not.cool.gif

Really enjoyed the new dastardly Baddie.

Although I bought the deluxe 3D version (in spite of not having the hardware), the 2D BD is reference.

Really looking forward to the sequel now more than ever.
