I counter negativity with positivity
In the movie as a whole, I'd say Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone! If you're talking about a specific scene I'd say it's a tie between Peter resquing the kid at the bridge and Spidey waiting on his web in the water system-whatever it is.
The high school fight between Lizard and Spidey.
I also like when Flash says "he gets it" when Parker grabs him and when Aunt May hugs Peter when he returns with eggs.
Yeah overall there were lots of very touching and great scenes in the film!
The ending - it just sums up his character arc perfectly - he stands for something far greater than a vigilante with superpowers - the city needs him, and as much as the people close to him get hurt, he still needs them
Oddly enough, despite many having problems with it, my favorite scene is probably Peter skateboarding to coldplay. I love that this is how he discovers his powers. Rather than just bumping up against a wall or flashing gangsigns on the rooftop. It had a specific connection with me. Not saying it shouldve for anyone else.
My favorite action scene is the school hallway rumble.
And I laughed the hardest at his "morning after" when he smashes his alarm clock and destroys his bathroom.
This might be the first time I laugh at a Stan Lee cameo.
James Horner's score. Thought it went perfect throughout the movie, especially during Capt. Stacy's death.
Most if not all the Spidey sequences, they just need to fix what they serve that with. The Stan Lee cameo in particular was well done.
This may have been Stan Lee's best cameo
Lee's cameo is near the top of the list (my favorite is the one inThor: TDW.) It is hard isolating a single moment, but I can list my favorite types of sequences: the night shots of LA ( they were beautiful!), the aforementioned Coldplay sequence, and any scene with Ifans.
Of course. I suppose that's why you started another thread asking "Who's to blame for SM3?" in a forum already rife with negativity.
To address the matter at hand, I'd say the school fight, with two noteworthy segments:
Webbing up the lizard. I especially liked the way he crawled over him, as a nod to how spiders behave. Always thought that was a nice touch.
Stan Lee's cameo. Legitimately clever and hilarious the whole way through; this scene was vintage Spidey.
1. Chemistry between Peter and Gwen/relationship
2. Dr. Connors (pre-Lizard)
3. Sarcastic Spider-Man
4. Oscorp and its involvement in Peter's dead parents and Spider-Man
5. Norman Osborn's presence felt throughout the entire film
6. School hallway fight/Spider-Man webbing up Lizard
7. Uncle Ben
8. Inspiration from Ultimate Spider-Man
9. Theme song
10. Stan Lee cameo
11. Touching scenes between characters
12. Chasing Uncle Ben's killer/montage
There are more, I just can't think of them now.
I LOVE the theme song so much - I can only use Becoming Spiderman for my gym sessions though, but the rest are perfect for going on walks with my headphones.
Sincerely hope the new music supergroup has something close to the emotional undertones of TASM soundtrack.
Peter and Gwen no doubt.
Andrew Garfield as Peter and Spider-Man.
And Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy t:
The end credits. Because it was such a bad movie. Har har har.
On a more serious note, the scene I enjoyed the most was Peter wrecking his bathroom after he got powers. It was funny, but not stupid, since he just realized he had super strength. True, it ripped off X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but it was funny in that movie as well.
1. The Casting
2. The Music
3. Giving more depth to the origin
4. Being more relatable
5. Oscorp having more focus
6. The costume
7. More depth to the setting
8. A more real family
My favorite part was the character development. The movie has a lot of flaws in its script, villain, etc, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't invested in the characters. And my favorite scene was probably the high school battle/Stan Lee cameo.
In terms of scenes, I loved the scene where Peter asks Gwen out and he's painfully awkward about it. It was like looking in a mirror with a different outcome!
That's not the same though as saying "worst part of SM3"
That thread was not to debate the quality but rather who was at fault for it's problems.
Underground scene when Peter tries to take a picture of Lizard and Stan Lee cameo
Just Emma Stone in general
