So just saw the new spiderman movie. Really liked it. Thought Andrew Garfield was a much better spiderman and Emma Stone was better than Kristen Dunst. Effect wise the camera angles were really cool and fight scenes were awesome. Loved how it stuck slightly closer to the comic making him have webshooters instead of natural webbing too.
However, storywise though I thought the Sam Rami's spiderman was slightly better. I liked Aunt May much better in the original Spiderman and Uncle Ben's death seemed to have more of an impact too. Also J Jonah Jameson was perfect in Rami's Spiderman, and although I still wished he had a part i the new spiderman, I doubt anyone can replace J. K. Simmons. Villain wise I thought the lizard was meh. Although the Green Goblin looked and was much cheesier than Lizard, overall William Defoe played a much scarier and memorable villain.
I'm probably still spoiled by Avengers and went in with too high of an expectation, but the new Spiderman was still a really cool movie. If you haven't seen the new Spiderman, I still recommend you check it out. Its a fun movie with a few laughs, and it had some great 3D effects mixed with swinging around the city.
So final thoughts...Personally I feel that the new spiderman and the original spiderman are roughly about the same, I still can't decide which I like better, but I feel that both movies did Spiderman justice. Spiderman 2 still ranks as my favorite Spiderman movie, and lets just pretend Spiderman 3 never existed.
Still really hope spiderman will appear in Avengers 2 lol
Anyways have you seen the new Spiderman? What are you thoughts on it, and how did you think it compared to Sam Rami's Spiderman?
