Default Re: Batman Begins Best Origin Movie ever ?

Well obviously if you think it only topped SM-3 you don't think too highly of it, haha.

My take on it is, I definitely didn't have the same "wow" factor with ASM that I did when I saw the first Spider-Man because face it, it's 10 years later, I've seen Spider-Man before and the bar for the superhero genre has been raised a ton since then. The movie also definitely had a few missteps for me that hold it back from being considered great in my eyes.

However, I feel that they are setting up a trilogy that has a lot of potential to surpass what Raimi did with the character overall. From Oscorp, to the Gwen Stacy storyline, to the mystery of Peter's parents, there's a lot brewing there that makes me inclined to believe they could tell a very coherent and tightly woven story over the course of a few movies. Second movies is where these types of franchises usually "pop", so here's hoping.
