The Amazing Spider-Man 2 How does ASM2 compare to ASM1?

Very unfavorably, and this is coming from someone who didn't think it could get much worse than the first movie.

TASM 2 wasn't so much a Spider-Man movie as it was a parody of one.
 
I almost feel like it's comparing apples to oranges because of how huge of a tone change there was between the two movies.

I kind of agree with you. I think I prefer the tone of the first film.

Parody of Spider-Man? Hardly. If it's one thing this movie got right it's Spider-Man and certain aspects of the tone and humor while he was in action. The subplots, editing and focus on a narrative was off but not Spidey. The character in tone was very much as he should be.
 
I like TASM2 much better. It sold me on the reboot, and I see it as a step-up. It's more in line with my Spider-Man preference. More daytime action, more humour and great chemistry - which TASM had too. TASM was a decent film but doesn't have a certain pizzaz about it.
 
Just watched ASM2.

I'll say ASM2 is slightly better because there's alot more to chew on with the villains, Gwen, and Parker's parents.

ASM2 definitely had a stronger ending.
 
They are about equal to me.
 
It's more bigger,sexy,beautiful,stunning,smart and etc
 
Equally great, equally average, or equally bad?

Equally good/average.

It had issue but no where near the caliber of self mutilation i felt like inflicting upon myself after watching SM3.
 
ASM2 improves on ASM1 in about every way imaginable. It gave me everything I wanted to see in the first film and, in many ways, is the Spider-Man film I've been waiting for.
 
I enjoyed the second slightly more than the first
 
I'd say they were both equally great. TASM 2 does a lot of things better but TASM has Martin Sheen, Dennis Leary, a simpler less 'world-buildy' story and the high school fight is still probably my favourite fight in all CBMs.
