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

SM1 is 1/2 a decent movie(1st half til Macy Gray and the GG show up) and half a s***-storm of a movie. Ultimately it evens out IMO to a film that ever so barely passes muster and avoids being a full on bad movie. TASM was IMO the best non-Marvel made Marvel character film to date. It jettisoned the Steve Urkel-ish sensibilities of the Raimiverse. Thank God! I couldn't take any more of that crap.

But even though BB is saddled with Katie Holmes/Rachel Dawes, i.e. Ms. "I'll singlehandedly make sure this film never reaches greatness" I'd still give it the edge over TASM, just not by a whole lot.
