People should stop comparing the previous Sam Raimi's trilogy with the current ASM.
I'm sick and tired of reading posts that says Webb shoehorn too much plot threads into a single movie
just because spider man 3 failed badly at it. People should start taking the new trilogy as it is.
Tobey was a great spiderman but easily pales in comparison when compared to Andrew. The new spiderman is probably the most
faithful adaptation of the one from the comics.
That said, the amazing spider man 2 is an awesome film and I honestly think most of the critics are biased just because it's not by Marvels Studios.
I mean honestly, Iron man 2 was terrible as hell.
Let´s agree that all Spiderman movies are shitty, ok?
AMS2 is still a bad movie. :P
Jeremy Kirk from firstshowing wrote a review similar to my thoughts.
edit: I think I will have to see Pompeii despite the bad reviews, because of Emily Browning.

I watched "I, Frankenstein," and it was better than I thought it would be, but overall it was somewhat mediocre (6/10) at best.
Dead Man Down was absolutely terrible, and you shouldn't even bother watching it.
I will watch it for Aaron Eckhart as a guilty pleasure in mind, maybe it's so bad it's good again.
Finally went to the movie theaters again after not going for over a year or more to see The Amazing Spiderman 2 and it was just incredibly amazing. Enjoyed every moment of it as this Peter Parker is so much more lovable and socialable and oozing with comedy and personality. Must also commend Harry for being such an amazing friend and giving Peter so many good scenes, hugging twice, joking along in the mansion scene and even some drama. Personally my favorite moments were definitely his own dilemmas with family, obscrop, and disease, and peter parker drama too. Kind of want to go see it again.
I just wish someone could explain the ending scene.
The mid credits sequence was weird inclusion.
a 54/100 on rottentomatoes anyway.
I thought it is one of the best and I'm sticking to that until someone else can really prove me wrong.
Teaser Clip for Godzilla:
I've teased myself enough already.
Pompeii was as bad as expected, so simple, so predictable, the most basic of basic that has already been shown countless times before. :/

I watched ASM2 yesterday and I loved it. I have not enjoyed any spiderman movie more. It was entertaining and that's it. I don't feel there was too much on the plate. Electro played the main part as the super villain and Harry complemented his role. The ending was somewhat shocking. I never imagined what happened but it also showed the character of Spiderman.
By saying that the ending is shocking you are already spoiling people... the damn hint to something is always already a spoiler.
The Monuments Men was super duper BAD! Boring.................................. to the max!
There were so many good things about this movie that outweighs the bad. All I'm saying is I don't see why it's that bad to deserve a mediocre score when a movie like Thor 2 or Spiderman 3 ranked even higher in RT. Heck, they can't even point out why it is mediocore besides going on and on about bad narrative, too many plotlines, a bad villain and/or too many villains. ALL of which spiderman 3 did worst.
What's so bad about the narrative? Weren't all the plotlines(if not the most important ones) tied up? Why is it too many villains again when strictly speaking its only 2?
But let's just leave it at that. Apparently I've been forum jumping for the movie and I'm glad that there were still a handful load of people that really enjoyed this movie, spidey fan or not so we'll just go in circles if we continue.
