Gunther: I haven't run into anyone who liked the first one. So far the best I've heard about it is "It's OK, but not as good as the first two Raimi ones".

Are Sony expecting to make any money of this one or are they just trying to keep the rights?


You haven't been looking hard enough.

The most recent one holds 73% critics and 81% audience on rottentomatoes.com.

First Raimi Spiderman-89%/65%
Second Raimi-93%/81%.

So audience-wise, it's right in the ballpark. A lot of people that say they didn't like it are hating for the sake of hating. I've heard people hating it because Sony owns the rights (true but has nothing to do with the movie itself) to Andrew Garfield not being a good Spiderman/Peter Parker (which is nonsense. If anything, he was a much better Peter Parker than Toby Maguire). People also don't like it because it was too soon for a reboot, which is true, but still doesn't affect the movie itself.
Spiderman was actually funny in the most recent movie. He mocked his enemies several times, which is what he does historically. The fight scenes felt more fluid than Raimi's movies most of the time as well.

The movie certainly wasn't without it's flaws. It dragged at times. The CGI for Lizard wasn't bad per se, he just ended up looking like one of the goombas from that bad early 90's Super Mario Bros movie.

I suggest people rewatch the first two Raimi ones again. Toby Maguire as Peter Parker is so farking awkward to watch that I feel embarrassed for him at times. He's not funny. He's not charming. There's nothing particularly enticing about Mary Jane Watson. Meanwhile, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy is funny, pretty, and smart and the relationship works a hundred times better than the Raimi ones.

Along with Foxx's Electro and Giamatti's Rhino, Osborn would mark the third antagonist to join the sequel.

Three villains? Really?

/sounds like fail

debug: Paul Giamatti's in it?  Okay, I might go see it.


But it also has Jamie Foxx.  Best acting that guy ever did is still from In Living Color.  Not sure how he manages to be in so many movies.  I suppose someone has to do the movies that Denzel refuses to do.  The guys who star in the straight to DVD/TV movies that Scy-Fy does have his acting ability beat hands down. Billed as an A lister, almost always drags the movie down to C list schlock. I suppose it explains why Tyler Perry seems so full of himself he has to add his name to everything when it's a nice way of saying "Don't confuse me for Jamie Foxx."

HotWingAgenda: The various goblins need to be banned for life from Spider-Man movies.  This is getting annoying.  Like the inability to have a modern Superman movie without Lex Luthor, or an X-Men movie without Magneto.  There are so many other, better-written villains available.


Spiders and goblins are natural foes, like bats and clowns, or red and gorillas.
