Well MacGuire's was (and I believe this is the scientific term) a massive pussy, so that's not exactly difficult or surprising.Nooners said:Bleeahhhhhhhh....not really liking this at all.
This guy just seems like more of a jerkass than Toby MacGuire's Spidey.
That's the impression I got too.Cheery Lunatic said:Well Jesus Christ guys, most of you guys sound determined to hate the movie, and came in looking at the clips from that perspective.
Realize this is less than two minutes worth of clips, so please, calm your balls.
Robert Ewing said:This is like that parplexing hulk remake, that went into production the SAME YEAR as the release of the OTHER hulk movie, and were both ABOUT the genesis of the Hulk. So it was essentially the same movie, released twice, but with a different subplot. It was so weird...
This is a needless remake! Raimi's movies were completely and utterly demonstrably fine! Sure the third one tripped at the last hurdle. But it's too soon!
A remake in 20 or 30 years I can understand, but why now!?
Also the rights to spider-man were about to go back to Marvel and Sony were afraid that:Hammeroj said:I can see the "too easy" line as a little chuckle-worthy, but really, this reeks of nothing but 'meh'.
And I don't like this Garfield guy at all. Didn't see anything special about him in Social Network, and seriously not seeing Spider-Man in him.
Fuck it, I'll be honest. Looks like shit.
Because Spider-man 2 and 3 broke box office records, and because, allegedly, Raimi decided not to work on the fourth movie after too much meddling by Sony.Robert Ewing said:A remake in 20 or 30 years I can understand, but why now!?
You shall now be savagely beaten for mentioning the movie that shall never be named again! I will, however, give you the choice of a baseball bat or a sledgehammer.ProtoChimp said:I will direct you to Ryan Renolds. Watch Buried... then watch the Green Lantern.Soviet Heavy said:The worst part is that I like him as an actor. He was great in the Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, so why is he so awful here?DVS BSTrD said:There's smoke coming out of his wrists in the second clip. They're going back to the web cartridges?
Looks like a Bruce Campbel cameo is just about the only thing that could make this movie bearable at this point.I think Garfield has forgotten the meaning of the word sincerity.Soviet Heavy said:That still looks awful, and his acting is making it worse.
Firstly, I'm going to get a little pedantic here: remake and reboot? Not the same thing. Secondly, I think it's a bit of a stretch to say Marc Webb is stealing anything. I mean, two scenes are similar so Webb is suddenly some scene-stealing villain? I doubt Webb is brazen or stupid enough to steal a scene from the original and figure nobody would care.Greg Tito said:Here's a free tip for Marc Webb on directing The Amazing Spider-Man: If you're going to remake a movie, don't directly steal scenes from the previous director's interpretation.
