Default Re: Batman Begins vs The Amazing Spider-Man?

I don't think TASM was awful, but it was too much of a rehash of Raimi's spider-man, and as I said on another thread I fear Man of Steel is going to suffer the same sort of drawback, as it looks like a rehash of Superman 1 and 2.

Batman Begins was a refreshing take on an old tale, and fortunately for the film makers Burton's Batman was not an origin story, so Nolan and Goyer had a lot of territory on which to cover. Really the only duplicate scene is that of Bruce's parents being shot, and while it was filmed at similar camera angles and such, it was really done as a homage.

"Dull and downbeat, this Fantastic Four proves a woefully misguided attempt to translate a classic comic series without the humor, joy, or colorful thrills that made it great." - Rotten Tomatoes critics consensus on Josh Trank's Fantastic Four
