And that's just one small part where TASM is far superior. I think it's a vastly better film than the first Spider-man on just about every level imaginable.
That's kinda how I felt about his portrayal in TASM.There was nothing really endearing about him.He seemed to make poorly communicated speeches several times,wheres in SM,we got a better sense of Peter's relationship with Ben (which seemed less contentious)even with less time given.
