March 20, 2016 Adrian I think it looks great. I was never worried about the CGI, which a lot of people in comments sections like to bag on, and it’s improving with every trailer that comes out. In that vein, I’m not at all bothered by the number of trailers. Man of Steel had a lot, too. It looks like Spider-Man, it sounds like Spider-Man, it must be Spider-Man. I would happily argue with anyone that the Amazing Spider-Man was better in every way than Raimi’s first film, save for maybe the score. Can’t wait for this one. stock Ok, Adrian, I’ll bite. How is getting bit by a hundred radioactive spiders better than getting bit by one? If you got bit by that many non radiated spiders, you’d probably just be dead. How does Peter being an immediate jackass with his powers make for a better Spiderman? I mean, he didn’t have to humiliate Flash on purpose to make his point, and it sure wouldn’t help keep a secret identity too long to be doing Amazing things as Peter Parker, especially considering Peter is supposed to be a nerdy wallflower. And here’s the big one for me. How does Uncle Ben getting shot over a penny, make his death any more meaningful, or receiving all his sage wisdom post mortem from a phone message make Peter a better hero? I won’t even go into the Lizard sub-plot. Sorry Adrian, but Raimi’s got that stuff beat hands down, IMO. I’ll give you SM 3, as that seemed to really piss off the fan base, but 1 and 2 go down as wins in my bracket. As far as I’m concerned the only thing that makes ASM stand out is the fortunate name of its director. Remember, argue happily. Adrian I’m still at work so I’ll be quick … Peter isn’t bitten by more than one spider. In that research room, many fall on him and he tried to shake them off. Then one straggler bites him after he’s left the room and is talking to Gwen again. So, just the one spider, I believe. Did he have to humiliate Flash? Nah. Still, I don’t feel bad for a guy who was picking on some kid at the beginning, punched Peter in front of a lot of other students, and knocked over a girl’s paint bucket all over her poster. Personally, I have no problem whatsoever with those in charge updating Peter from a nerdy wallflower to more of a nerdy loner. Being a nerd back when the character was created and being one now can be totally different. Who said they were trying to make Uncle Ben’s death more meaningful? All it showed was that Peter played a hand in it, which is all that’s necessary for the guilt that the character is meant to have going forward. Also, let’s not forget that Uncle Ben never actually tells Peter that “with great power comes great responsibility” in the comics. I’m not saying you said that, I’m just pointing that out since many people get that wrong. I only have time to defend the points you were making and can’t really talk about Raimi’s first Spider-Man film at the moment. I’d love to later, though, if you’re still around. Just reply back to this or whatever. stock If my memory of the scene is faulty, ok, but the impression I got was he was bit by many, tho 100 is pushing it. I haven’t seen it since it left the theaters. You may be right. My point with Flash is not that Flash deserves compassion. He deserves what he gets. Its just that Peter, who is going to try to preserve his anonymity, shouldn’t have been so quick to show off talents he’d never shown before. Most people, (outside of movies, anyway) will make mental connections especially to something strange and outside the norm. And yes, I must have been a nerd before being one was so cool. This film IMO never really established a Uncle Ben/Peter connection. In Raimi’s film Cliff Robertson made that connection. Here’s this much older guy, childless, trying to raise an orphan kid, and trying to sink in as much of his experience of being an adult into his nephew as he can before he just kicks off naturally. And here’s the kid rejecting him. I just thought in ASM, that was an afterthought, ergo, the phone message, and poorly executed. Along with the ‘ya gotta spend 10 bucks to take a penny.” I have never heard of anyone anywhere having a rule like that. Finally, my problem, and I’m sure I share it with others my age, is that just because something is new, doesn’t make it better, or negate the accomplishment of what came before it. Like Batman, I waited years for Raimi to come along and make a good Spiderman flick. And he did. At least twice. This is not an apples and oranges argument, its oranges and oranges. And the Raimi orange, tasted better to me. Thanks for the reply and keeping it happy. Don’t work too hard. 🙂 Adrian Personally, that scene with Flash doesn’t bother me in the least. It was lighthearted and deserved on Flash’s end and also serves as a precursor to a scolding that Uncle Ben gives him in the next scene. I’ll say it’s a little more extreme, but I find it similar to the scenes of Peter catching all of MJ’s food on a tray and him flipping high up in the air on Flash and his bully friends and punching Flash all the way down the hallway in Raimi’s first Spider-Man. If Raimi’s students didn’t put it all together after that display then Webb’s doesn’t have to, either. As far as the relationship between Peter and Uncle Ben goes, I feel that it was way better fleshed out in Webb’s Spider-Man. There were touching scenes, funny scenes, and obviously a tragic scene. That’s no knock on the late Cliff Robertson but Sheen was definitely given a bit more to do. He felt nervous about his place as Peter’s surrogate father, he got to be playful and understanding but firm at the same time, and he even got to banter with Aunt May as a husband. While the ‘take a penny, leave a penny’ is a common thing in many convenience stores, the $10 minimum, I can’t argue with. I can only surmise that it was the clerk being a jackass or, like he says, “store policy.” Now, I’m not sure if you were directing it at me but I never said that the Amazing Spider-Man is better than Raimi’s because it’s new. When comparing one to the other, I just find Webb’s better than Raimi’s in almost every way. My problem, and I’m not directing it at you specifically, is that a lot of people look back on these films with nostalgia goggles on. Anyway, if you’re ever up to it, I highly suggest giving it another go. In my opinion, I say it’s on par or even better than Raimi’s first film, save for Danny Elfman’s score. That I give them. Lastly, I just want to make it clear that I greatly understand what Singer’s first X-Men film and Raimi’s first Spider-Man film did for this genre. That, I will never argue. Without the successes of those films we wouldn’t have what we do today. I was in my mid-teens when I saw both of them and they rocked my world. So while I’ll give my opinion on which I think is better when compared to one another, I don’t want anyone to think that I hate or dislike Raimi’s first Spider-Man film. I definitely don’t play that BEST THING EVER or WORST THING EVER game. stock I try never to get personal or take anything personal with this blogging stuff, Adrian. I respect someone who’s willing to back their opinions up. Glad to have an interesting debate, tho I sometimes wish I had the movie playing so I could remember better. Speaking of which, 1 more point to argue: In Raimi’s flick, Peter first expresses his new abilities at school as a series of accidents. He’s just as shocked as anyone who might have witnessed it, and could probably pass it off as a fluke. As in “How’d you do that?” “I have no idea.” The new film is more of a “how ya like me now,” moment. I also think Raimi improved with the second flick. No easy task for any franchise. I’m hoping this sequel improves on ASM. Hard to tell from previews. As to the state of the genre, I’ve been mostly pleased with it, since Spidey, X-Men, and Bats have re-emerged. I was a little taken aback by the speed they put out the Spidey reboot, but I generally like the kid playing him. Read ya around. Stock Steven Capelouto I agree i love spiderman but never liked any of Rami films except 2 but thats only because of Doc Oct Adrian Edmondson Looks fantastic . Cap and this have my attention right now . Come on Singer deliver the goods for Xmen , please !!! Michael Lalaian Is it just me or do all these Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailers look the same? Granted, this one had more footage, especially of the clock tower fight. But if you showed me the last trailer and told me it was the new one I probably wouldn’t know the difference. It’s the same scenes over and over again, which makes me think the plot may turn out to be a little thin. I also really, really hate this line “You know what I love about being Spider-Man? Everything!” That’s a far cry from “With great power comes great responsibility.” Really, you love everything about Spider-Man? Like super villains that kill your girlfriend’s father? I wasn’t the world’s biggest fan of the first Amazing Spider-Man, but I feel like they’re trying too hard to replace its tone with the “fun, hip, carefree Peter Parker.” etourist I personally find this version of Peter Parker unlikable. So much so that I have no interest in seeing this film in a theater. Every time Peter delivers a supposedly witty line I just want someone to smack him in the face because, to me, he comes across as all arrogance. Not too dissimilar from Dane’s character in Chronicle. When I go to see a superhero film I like to be on the hero’s side… and I just can’t do it for this incarnation of the character. Robert Reineke I just don’t sense any confidence in the direction of the Spider-Man reboot. I look at the trailers and there’s a lot of throwing everything against the wall to see if any of it sticks. And, I don’t think they really understand Spider-Man. This whole “it’s your destiny” thing that they seem determined to stick on Peter Parker is 100% wrong. It’s not Peter Parker’s destiny, it’s the choices he makes that define him. It’s wrong for Star Trek too, but that’s another story. Trying to turn everything into a Cambellian hero’s journey is something you do when you don’t really have a take on a character, you just lean on Star Wars. Raimi may have been a fan of the Lee/Ditko Spider-Man instead of later iterations, but at least that fandom was genuine. I don’t get the sense that anyone involved in the latest series has a real vision and would fight for that vision. Which is too bad since they have a good cast. But, I think Orci and Kurtzman are going to do what they always do, string together a bunch of action scenes at a relentless pace with lots of one liners and no coherent story making it all a bunch of sound and fury signifying nothing.
