To me, it's more like "a good and likable actress doing the most of what little she had to work with."

(Though she was cringy AF in TASM2, as everyone involved was.)

According to my timezone, you were one day late in celebrating it.
Happy belated anniversary to this movie.

Crazy I watched this movie the other day, unaware of the anniversary haha.

Didn't care for it as much as I used to though... :/

I think in retrospect killing Captain Stacy was a mistake. And there should have been a few more scenes between him and Peter. Or even him and Spider-Man. The Lizard would have been a more interesting villain if they stayed closer to the source material.

And knowing Ben's Killer got away and was not a plot point revisited, bugs the hell out of me. When the movie was first released I just rolled with it.

I don't mind that he didn't find the killer, the idea of finding multiple lookalikes in a city that large made sense to me, and it's actually an interesting idea to be taken with an amateur Spider-Man.

I can agree with that. As I said, when the movie first came out I was interested in that change and where it would go. But it didn't go anywhere.

My fiance still digs Amazing more than the latest (and greatest) incarnation, so it's been fun going back and forth with her. But I'm done with this version of the character. Fun while it lasted but in my mind I can now go see a movie (soon to be series) with the real Spider-Man.

Well, I still dig the ASM1 costume, so I may watch the movie here and there to see it in action.

Your fiance is taking crazy pills.

But seriously, I totally agree with your comment. I enjoyed this series for what it was while it was out, but the shine is gone. Homecoming has put this series in a deep grave. Although I'll always appreciate the things it got right, overall the rewatchability factor just isn't there like it still is for the Raimi films and will be for the newest one.

I've seen the movie twice, she has only seen it once and wasn't able to focus due to the guy sitting next to us drenched in cologne. She said she would like to see it again so there's still hope, haha.

Seems to be she just really enjoyed the destined-for-tragedy romance between Peter and Gwen. Whereas I can see the inconsistencies with character adaptation she doesn't have to worry about it and can enjoy it as it is presented. Maybe I'm envious in that regard.

Only joking, rest assured I didn't mean any harm. Hope she enjoys the second viewing more!

In all honesty, the romance was the saving grace/best part of the TASM franchise by far. Character adaptations and changes are part of the game, just look at Homecoming. The biggest problem with the TASM series is that they just aren't extremely well-made films.
