The Amazing Spider-Man Reviews
This one is slower getting to the business than the first movie. First half of the movie stumbles trying to get through the origin story, so it took longer than the 2002 film to get through it. Ben Parker's bit I feel was strangely done. I think I preferred the elder Aunt May as well.
The second half of the film and the action scenes are very good for this film, it's one of those movies that starts off terrible, but gets greater later.
I felt the original was all-around great, and got terrible at the end. Mary Jane I feel is still /The/ Spider-Girl (she became self-centred in 3, but we're comparing the initial films).
As for Spider-Man himself, I feel Tobey McGuire is still a better Spider-Man, with both values and emotions, but modern Spider-Man is pretty much a meme, it's like the script writer went on 9Gag to get ideas.
His initial scene in suit and with the car thief, is the meme. He stops being a meme during the climax at least. Tobey became the meme much, much later. Andrew started out as the meme. Somehow I feel these movies shouldn't be comparable to each other, but it's hard not to do so.
"Property of Peter Parker" is "Save Martha!!!" levels of stupid.
