Re: Batman Begins vs The Amazing Spider-Man?
Begins. Besides the fact that it's just an all-around better film, it provided us with Batman's origin, which had not been seen in a live action film before. TASM was decent, but mainly for the acting. The plot was nothing special, and in the end it was really nothing that we haven't seen before. The only thing that TASM bested Begins in was the love interest. Emma Stone is WAY better than Katie Holmes.
However, IMO, both films were effective in making you leave the theater saying, "Yeah, this was good, but the next one is what I'm REALLY looking forward to." The Dark Knight fulfilled that desire above and beyond. Let's hope TASM2 does the same.
