It's great to hear that audiences are still loving the movie. Was it a packed house? I wonder out of the audience members who was there seeing ASM for the first time, who was there to support the charity or who was there in support of Spidey.

I agree with your sentiment on the review. I give the film an 8.5, for about the same reasons. I love the movie however I felt Connors was not developed enough and although I had no qualms about the Lizard's overall design and 'master plan' he was simply underused and rushed.
I'd say about 60-70% of the theater seats were taken, so yeah it was a packed house, especially considering this was a movie that would be ending after midnight. I have a feeling that just about everyone had seen the movie already since its been out for a year. Either way I was happy to see the audience engaged in the movie.

Honestly, the only thing keeping me from giving TASM a solid 9/10 is the Lizard. I don't think he was a bad villain, and I think his 'master plan' is fine as it was clearly inspired by the classic comic books. His look was good IMO (not amazing like Electro's design), and I REALLY liked Rhys Ifans' performance as Dr. Connors. If he was only fleshed out more, and if his wife and son were introduced, he would have been more likable.

What I do appreciate is that the Lizard ties into Spider-Man's origin. With the 2002 film, the Green Goblin's story is completely irrelevant, and feels almost as if it were a separate film. Hopefully Dr. Connors returns in future sequels in a cameo (or maybe transform back into the Lizard if the Sinister Six ever happens).

I haven't watched the movie in a while but I am planning too once I finish reading this stack of Spidey comics I've been going through.

I agree the only thing really holding this movie down was the lack of elaboration on Dr. Connors.

Especially the Father/Son angle that could've paralled Billy and Peter, missed opportunity for some added tension in the action scenes.

Quite far from underrated as on this board it's the 2nd best spidey film and on RT it's on the top 15 CBM's ( I think it's No.12) though it is one of the most unfairly critisised ( doing the origin again)

That's probably because most of them complain about it being samey. I can understand people being tired of reboots to something, but then there's people that claim it to be the EXACT same thing from the first one. Of course there's some recycled scenes, but I always figured that it was more of an easter egg thing.

I believe Marc Webb wanted to put in a number of easter eggs to the Raimi trilogy. Here are a couple that I can think of now:

1. After Peter discovers his powers, we see a nighttime shot of him running home.
2. At the end of the movie, Peter's teacher is telling her class that there is one plot in all of fiction, and its "Who am I?" This line was used at the beginning of SM1: "Who am I? Are you sure you want to know? My story is not for the faint of heart."

Was it considered an Easter Egg that they used Uncle Ben's killer from SM1 as Ratha's driver?

It probably was an easter egg. They could have easily gotten anyone else to play Ratha's driver.

I can't believe people voted on the poll here giving it a 1-3/10... kinda harsh.

Eh, the same could be said about those that gave the movie a perfect 10 out of 10. I don't agree with either.

True, but I'll take 10/10 over 1/10



I feel like only a real hater would go out of his or her way to give a movie such a low score.

I would like nothing more than to be able to say with complete honesty that I will give a Spidey film a 10 out of 10. That would just about make my day...for lots of days.

I don't think that would happen in my case. I wouldn't even give SM2 or TDK a 10/10 (they both get a 9 from me).

If I could give TASM2 an 8.5 or 9/10, then I would be happy.

Take a look at TDKR or IM3 or even MOS on these boards. This film was alot less polarizing.

I gave ASM an 8.5/10 and I am expecting to be able to give ASM2 something above that mark. Anything less than that will be a disappointment. It's my hope that these Spidey movies gradually get better with each installment rather than have ASM2 for example, be a full on 10 out 10 and leave no room for ASM3 to improve upon the series. A steady incline showing improvements in overall quality is the best thing imo.

I like to stay far away from the Batman boards. I like to have peace.

IDK about the MOS boards, but I guess I better stay away from those, too.

Why? TDKR is just the same people arguing in a circle saying what they like or don't like the film

I loved it in the Theater then on DVD i see it rarely but when i do, i always watch it after dark knight rises, however i give it an 8, i mean sure it has its flaws, but let me be specific on this and say its a "slow paced" story that takes a while to finish, which makes it harder to watch where as something like I don't know (MIB3) extremely quick, and it's over before you realize it.

I didn't find TASM slow. TDKR was rather slow (and a bit too long might I add).

Not that I really care, but I noticed that the user scores on RT went down for a ton of Comic Book movies just recently.

TASM: 77% from 81%
MOS: 77% from 82%
SM2: 80% from 82%
TA: 91% from 93%
Thor: 76% from 79%
CA: TFA: 72% from 77%
IM: 90% from 93%
TDKR: 89% from 91%

Even Skyfall went down from the 90s to 85% positive. IDK what is going on.

Iron Man 3 still has 82% (which I think is really high for that movie).
