Finally got the missus to watch it last night with me. She was put of by it through my constant 'praise' of the film. So, after shutting up about it for a week, she said 'Ok, let's watch it'.

Cool stuff.

Her verdict? She loved it. In fact, I caught her crying at a lot of the film. She said that the origin is already better than the original, that it had more to it and everything felt more natural.

So I had a pleasent evening last night. I think that's the 7th time I've watched the film since I 'got it'. And it gets better each viewing

Dad wanted to watch this over the holiday and it's worse than when I saw it in theaters. This whole movie just feels like a half assed and forced attempt on a Spider-Man movie. Nothing really felt genuine. You could tell Raimi was a huge fan of the character and to me this script seems like someone pretending to love the character. It has no classic feel at all. They tried too hard to make it different from the previous 3 that they focused on what they could do different than what they could do right ...all the way down to the costume. What's hilarious is how much they copied from SM1 without realizing it.

Hopefully Webb doesn't get manhandled this go around and they write a good script. Not very excited about their casting choices so far.

Geez, you are really hard on this movie. If you hate it so much, then why do you bother posting about it?

You're sig is hilarious and perfectly matches your opinion. I think that in ASM 2 they are actually going to try a little more to do their own thing instead of just trying to replace Raimi series.

When did I say he doesn't have the right to post about it?

I dislike Iron Man 2, Captain America, & Thor, but I don't go on those boards and constantly complain about how "bad" they were. Its a waste.

I am still a big fan of the original trilogy, that when I saw this film I didn't really have an opinion because I constantly kept thinking about the other films and comparing. How they were similar, how they were different, what they did better in this one, what they did better in the other one etc.

Finally saw it again, and reaalllllly liked it. I think for some people, especially if they liked the older ones a lot or remember a lot about them, they might have to see it twice. Obviously if they didn't like it they just didn't like it, but I think if you do see it again already knowing whats different/worse/better and just see it as a whole, it might be better. Then again it might be worse.

But for me, it was really good the second time around.

Not every movie review is positive, and he's just sharing his opinion.

Yes, I'm aware that not every movie review is positive. My point, once again, is that he comes back on here constantly sharing with us that he hates the film, and reminds us of it multiple times.

I respect people's opinions, and not everyone can agree on the same thing. Just after a while, reminding us multiple times becomes too much.

I get that some people didn´t like TASM but that doesn´t mean that they have to come here to remind us every month like trying to prove something, everyone has the right to express their opinion but if they constantly express the same thing multiple times in a negative way becomes tiresome

but still is his opinion and we have to respect it

i know i use this A LOT but:


IT has no "Classic feel" because is based more in the Ultimate universe,they seem they copied the movie because that´s how Spiderman origin is and in many ways , and what´s genuine people seem to hate because is too different from Raimi´s Peter they did the costume different exactly to differ from the previous trilogy , that´s why they are doing a more ""Classic"" look for the next movie, i know this movie has a lot problems and thanks for sharing your thoughts... but still with that I still enjoy the movie and i hope the sequel is better

Its funny, but I've watched the movie several times (5 times in theaters, once on blu-ray), and I think I like it more every time I see it again. The first time I loved it, but was a little unsure about how I felt about the movie. Second time, I noticed the movie's flaws, but I still loved it. By the third or fourth time around, I stuck with my rating of 8.5/10. Its not set in stone, so it will probably go down to an 8 or so in 10 years, but for now that will do.

I'm really looking forward to the sequel.

What i really hope is that is like a comic book, the leave some plots for the sequel, because they knew they will have a sequel, in a review someone said that SM 1 felt more like a completed movie because they wrote it as a stand alone film instead of the first chapter of a series of movies and that´s why people complain "Where is the Untold story?" because this is the first chapter of a trilogy but still they need a better script

There are pros and cons to having unresolved plot points to be later resolved in a sequel. You can easily make a solid standalone film that could still warrant a second film, like Spider-Man 1. We are guaranteed more films anyway, so as long as these unresolved stories find some sort of conclusion within the next couple of films, I will be satisfied.

exactly if they leave unresolved things UNRESOLVED we will have a problem , but if they if fact connect plots from TASM1 to TASM2 like Peter finding his Uncle killer and other stuff and completing THE UNTOLD STORY

If Peter never finds his uncle Ben's killer, then I'm going to be very upset. Well, I'm sure everyone will have a HUGE problem with this franchise if that happens. But I doubt it will ever go in that direction, considering they panned over the Wanted photo of the killer at the end of TASM. Uncle Ben's voicemail mentions how Peter has so many unresolved things in his life at the same time.

Likewise...couldn't someone say one cannot constantly come on here sharing with us on how much they love or enjoy the film?

If you can't take the bad, then the good shouldn't be shared either as they all are open for discussion or at least should be.

Well, I think it makes more sense to discuss something you enjoy rather than something you hate. Anyways, enough of this little debate...
