I remember the first time Spider-Man was swinging on the big screen, everyone jumped up and started screaming!

I think the love story was good in SM1, okay in SM2, and terrible in SM3.

Exactly, that's the strongest part of the movie IMO. I'd argue that it was possibly the best origin story fora superhero on film, rivaled only by Batman and Iron man.

Yeah. The last swing in SM-1 was like "WOW". So I do have find memories of when I first saw it.

In regards to the love story, I found it bearable in SM-1, bad in SM-2 and down right awful in SM-3. SM-3 really showed to me at least that MJ was a complete B**CH. They didn't know how to write a decent female lead... IMO

It's a big reason why I love TASM. Gwen (and in particular Emma Stone) just exude awesome. I look forward to seeing how they write MJ and how the new girl performs the role. Thanks to how Gwen was written, I have high hopes

I am very confident that Shailene Woodley will be a superior MJ to Kirsten Dunst.

The love story was just a waste of time in the third movie. Raimi was repeating the love triangle once again. I thought I would be seeing in the movie MJ taking care of Peter's wounds, talking to him about past experiences and having Peter sharing the tough day he had as a superhero. This would be the next step of their relationship, not betraying him with an amnesic guy, cooking and dancing, having arguments here and there, Peter refusing her help and her advices but at the same time wanting to marry her.

It was unnecessary. It was a step backwards with them. Not only a waste of the movie's runtime ruining a stablished relationship, but also that it was a time that should have gone to the development of Sandman and Eddie.

I wanted to see something like this before Peter got the symbiote. Then afterwards, he'd become more aggressive and mean, so he could actually give MJ something to complain about.

I don't blame Kirsten as much as the writing. MJ was written in a horribly bland way. Even the first one didn't give her much to do.

Not only Bland, but self-centred also.

If Spider-Man 3 was 2 movies, then it might have been a lot better. I thought Eddie Brock's screen time was limited.

Definately, I still like SM3, but they should have expanded it to 2 movies, the problem was trilogies were still a big thing in 2007, heck they still are now, but thankfully some franchises are going beyond that as they know there is more material there.

I really hope this new Spidey franchise goes beyond a trilogy.

Thanks! Your review and comparison of the Spider-Man movies are fantastic. I often use them as examples for why TASM is a better setup for future movies, and why it has so much potential in comparison to the Raimi films.

You can't explain why someone's really in love.

However we aren't told right away Peter's in love with some chick who we come to find out has 0 likeable qualities and through the course of the film goes for 3 different guys. (Four if you count Peter and Spidey as different people.)

In The Aamazing Spider-Man we see Peter and Gwen fall for each other with allows the audience to actually see they develope.

You had someone make a really pointless point about a movie he feels is lesser and then another person asked the same question about the movie the prior person loves. Then the next few posts are haha really terrible pseudo affirmations to the original post.

I mean comeon...

So you dissect a discussion because...?

Try reading my post again.

I don't hate Peter/MJ because it doesn't explain why they weren't in love. It's just forced upon the audience and we don't see them develope together. We don't know WHY Peter has fallen for MJ. MJ comes off as unlikeable.

Gwen and Peter's relationship grows throughout the film. We see them interact and build a relationsip rather than be told, "Peter is in love with Gwen". We SEE him go through the character developement to see him reach the point where he falls for her.
