The Amazing Spider-Man(2012)

The Spider-Man reboot is an updated retelling of the origin story, which aside from really cool CGI and 3-D, didn't really blow me away. I've never thought of Peter Parker as a skate-board riding, hoodie-wearing, kind of a guy. It was nice to see Gwen Stacey and Flash brought in from the original comic book but Andrew Garfield is no Tobey Mcguire and Emma Stone is no Kirsten Dunst. Martin Sheen is a good Uncle Ben but Sally Field seems miscast as Aunt May. The story itself is a good effort yet seems to fall short.
