Is it done well in 3D? I'm going to see it tomorrow, and my theater only seems to play blockbusters in 3D.

Mary Jane and Gwen at the same time in 3D? Yeah I hope it's well done.

Movie was pretty good, despite the origins pretty much being exactly the same, it didn’t bore nor did it feel unnecessary. It’s was a good reboot on the origins.

Film felt a bit slow in the beginning but again never boring, just right. There were cheesy parts but overall the film was good. I’d rank it right there with SM1, slightly below SM2 and well above SM3. The first half did feel more like a love story with a bit of Spiderman origins around it but it worked for me, others might hate it. Not sure how it'll hold up in time though.

Acting was superb, Garfield was still difficult to be taken as a nerd just by his looks but his acting chops far exceeds Tobeys. His awkward mannerisms were also pretty good.

Emma Stone simply looked great on the big screen and she is just miles away from Dunst in both looks and skill. Just is also very alluring and played the part well.

Action sequences are perhaps the best out of all the Spiderman franchise. It was fast and quick paced and it really showed Spidey as very acrobatic and agile, it is the best interpretation of how Spidey might actually fight.

Costume looked much better in action and the light-up spider web wasn’t noticeable in the film and I almost didn’t notice the silver shoes either.

The Lizard looked much better on-screen too, the no-snout wasn’t as bad when he’s moving. It did look a bit fake once they do a close-up but it wasn’t bad at all. I definitely expected worse.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Movies plot points were pretty similar to SM1 with a few changes like his parents being there in the beginning and Stacy pretty much falling in-love with him w/o trying much. Connors was pretty much Osborne in this film (failing in science so he experiments on himself and even has a schizo moment here and there).

I didn’t like how cheesy it got in the end where the NYers helped Spidey by lining up all the cranes. Ugh.


I also hated how vague who the guy in the mid-credits scene too, I have no freaking idea who it is. It would have been nice to make it more distinguishable (like Fury or Thanos) because if no one knows who it is, then it just shows that there is a sequel (which we all knew already) and that there is more to his parents (which was pretty obvious).

No "with great power comes great responsibility" phrase is kind of disappointing. It's cheesy by now but I wouldn't have minded hearing it.

Stay for the mid-credit scene and then leave, there is nothing after the actual credit.

Saw it last night. Exceedingly similar to SM1 plot-wise, but IMO much more enjoyable since Garfield >>>> Maguire and Stone >>>> Dunst. Agree with everything RFX said in his spoiler above.

Saw it in IMAX 3D tonight. Highly enjoyable. Definitely blows the originals out of the water. Which isn't hard, since they sucked. I have a few problems with the script and casting (still think they could have done better than Garfield. Not one single smart ass quip the whole movie! COME ON!!) but this was a markedly better effort. I recommend seeing it on the big screen in 3D. I wouldn't have enjoyed it nearly as much in 2D.

I was entertained. I still cannot fathom why they can't read a comic and realize Peter is a smart ass nerd and get someone who can do sarcasm! Garfield was a bit morose in certain spots and all the lip quivering was a bit much. Emma Stone is so much better than Kiersten Dunst that its not even fair to compare them.

NYC looks really good in this movie save for that one scene in RFX's spoiler above.

uhoh.gif I am now questioning your judgement, especially on the 3D part. Spiderman 1 kickstarted the modern era of blockbuster superhero films, and it still stands the test of time (hell, I watched it a couple weekends ago). Spiderman 2 was way better acted, more interesting villain, etc. Sp3 I agree sucked hard.

Excuse me, sir, but Tobey McGwire was the worst thing ever to happen to comic book movies. Worse than Ang Lee. Worse than Thomas Jane. Even worse than Batman & Robin! (that's right, I said it) And that jackoff Sam Rami didn't help either. No, those movies should be burned and forgotten.

Yes Tobey McGwire is incredibly awful, but I find it hard to believe that he even approaches the awfulness of Jack Nicholson's Joker. (have not seen Batman & Robin)

What's the hate with Maguire? I thought he played a better Spiderman and he's a hell of an actor outside of Spiderman.

hater's gunna hate

He was way too emo for Spiderman and S3 evil Peter Parker was so cringeworthy terrible it will forever be how Tobey will be remembered as Spiderman.
