Also, the CGI looks 10x better and there are more practical stunts than in all 3 original films combined.
And of course, it makes sense financially as Sony wants to hold on to the rights to Spidey for as long as possible...
I personally thought McGuire made for a decent Spidey but Dunst I thought was terrible. Felt the same way about the actress in Batman Begins, which escapes me now. I'm also not thrilled about the reboot as for one, I felt it was way too soon and two, I'm tired of getting recycled concepts as well. I posted elsewhere the I felt like Hollywood is getting over by doing so. I include many of the tv shows now becoming movies in this category as well. Having said all of that, I'm intrigued by this movie if only by the imagery. It has a very comic feel to me, which could be pretty cool. The first McGuire Spidey I thought was good but the following two were movies I don't feel compelled to add to my library (though i don't have the first one either) nor do I get excited if I see them coming on TNT or something. Because of my kids I'll probably go see it but I'm not sure if I'll go 2D or IMAX 3D. Even after my Avengers experience I'm not a over the top IMAX 3D fan but something about Spiderman just screams 3D. We'll see come next week.
And for those picking on Transformers 2, Lethal Weapon 3, Temple of Doom, Rocky V and most of all Star Wars prequels....you don't respect the classics man!
