Reading over the last couple of pages in this thread has brought a smile to my face. So many good posts. I'd love to quote them but I'd end up using an entire page in doing so, lol. I won't deny either that there are those 'bandwagoning' fans that just jump on the newest, shiniest object in the room and claim it to be their favorite. That happens with almost everything though. For example, you'll see an exponential increase in the number of fans for the superbowl winner each year. With that being said, there are many posters here on SHH that have given very good, well-thought, specific explanations as to why they prefer ASM to whatever film or films that Raimi created. To blanket one of those individuals or even myself into a 'bandwagoning' group is just silly. I wish that I had the ability to explain myself as well as some of the posters on here (looking at you Shikamaru and Fox) but I thoroughly enjoy the new approach that Webb and Co are taking on my beloved Spider-man. As Oz pointed out, everything about the movie feels so grounded and genuine. And I agree with Smegger, I've watched ASM about 5 times now since owning it on Bluray and my enjoyment of the film grows upon each viewing.
