SPIDER-MAN reboot

lol his growth didn't take long because he didn't grow and he was never peter parker. he was well-acted, but idk how anyone familiar with spider-man can say that was ever peter.

word his growth to Peter to spiderman didnt take 2/3rd of the movies. pretty dope. the end credit is prolly Osborn. He'd prolly use that same science design/machinery with the green smoke and turn him into schizo/goblin


Yeah, even during the movie it sorta felt like they were slightly hinting at norman osborne/ green goblin being the next villain in the sequel. Theyve already established gwen stacy as parkers girlfriend too so if they have goblin in the sequel they have the perfect setup to correlate to the comics. If not my second guess would be mysterio.

Possible spoilers, read on at your own discretion. There seems to be a few plot holes though, IF it is Norman Osborn, how did he get healed? Did Rajit some how get the "cure" to him after the bridge scene? Is he already insane with green goblin being his alter ego? Like hikaru said, it seemed like the movie was hinting towards green gob being the next villain and all the shenanigans with it following more closely with the comics, BUT, didn't Gwen have an affair with Norman Osborn in the comics? (Not sure if I remember correctly doe)

hated this flick. corny, cheeze, lame, that high-school bully-victim plot will not make it, to many cringe worthy scenes. the cherry on top was that last scene about breaking promises .puke. thank god didn't go to 3d. the first tobey maguire spiderman was much more enjoyable than this.
ohhh and that crane scene followed by his limp run. fuck that shit.

Wasn't a fan of this one to be honest. I liked the first two spiderman movies much more. I felt that Garfield looked like he was about to cry in about every other scene with those watery eyes all the time. Also the entire opening scene of the movie I felt was kind of unnecessary, or at least didn't need to be in that great of length.

I also felt like the anguish and frustration that Parker goes through wasn't well explored or portrayed in this version. It was more like a teenage drama on TV how things played out.

yeah i was like... ok, he's even struggling just to get to the fight. if he beats the lizard, that's bullshit.
July 10, 2012 @ 09:16:10
i really liked this one,
garfield is way better spidey in my opinion , fuck tobey maguire

also i find emma stone sooo sexy

Lol, were you not paying attention? They were trying to save Norman Osborn

As for the first 2 spiderman being better than this one...I don't know about that. This movie stayed more true to the comic than the Tobey Maguire ones. I just liked how he was more comical while in his suit AND the fact his suit looked like it was straight out of the comics
July 10, 2012 @ 21:33:51
garfield>maguire

stone>dunst

The story could've been much better.. they fucked up the whole movie when they cut off those scenes. Oh well, I still enjoyed this more than the previous franchise.

The only good thing about this was Emma Stone other than that :|

lol r u trolling? how was this more like the comics? how was he "more comical in suit"? oh, that one scene when he's being a douche to the car thief? that wasn't spider-man witty.... that was just douchey. and just one scene. as far as the costume...

classic comic costume:


old movie costume:


new movie costume:


say what you want about the old movies, but the costume is a straightforward translation.

^ it was closer to the comics in that it spent more time on the origin story AND did it right. Plus they pulled off the villain well.
July 11, 2012 @ 01:41:45
^ gotta disagree. like the lizard had absolutely no motivation to become evil. he goes from nice scientist guy to evil monster in one quick scene. the whole "i'm gonna turn the whole world into lizards" comes out nowhere and was uncalled for.

this. At least in the previous spidermans the villans had legit reasons for why they turned evil.

It was a side effect of the syrum though. Even as curt connors he wanted to successfully regenerate limbs and bring that cure to the world but ends up transforming into a lizard with massive power so basically Its the story of a scientist gone mad thinking he's doing the right thing for humanity to become powerful top class lizards like him. I dont see how thats not motivation for the lizard being evil.

there's no seed. it's not like the power of being the lizard corrupts a decision he was having trouble with. he had no notions of turning people into lizards before or making people stronger. he just wanted to cure people, and most importantly, himself. it was dumb and x-men did it better.

so was dis a fail or wut?


yes lol

and ita with gold about peter's attitude. he wasn't funny, he was mean. and he never becomes anything more than that. he barely talks in the last fight scenes and his general demeanour is kind of "cool dude".
July 11, 2012 @ 20:17:25
^ even in the comics he had the plot to turn humans into reptiles. I dont see how its uncalled for but to each his own. I honestly thought it was done way better than the raimi villains. They at least stayed true to the villains motives and characteristics in the comics.
July 11, 2012 @ 20:34:21
imo even in the mythology of spider-man lizard has never been a skrong character to base a big story around. it's like the villain in iron man 1 isn't the most compelling so they made it about iron man and why tony stark would become iron man. where they could've done that with this and compensated in like, they chose to make it about peter's love life and raised all these plot points and then cut them out of the film and the result is disjointed and kinda nonsensical.

and most importantly, doesn't make us care about peter.
July 11, 2012 @ 20:59:51
Maguire>Garfield, but Stone>Dunst. After finally watching this movie I have to say that I think this movie focused way too much on building Peter Parker up as a regular guy, and not focusing enough on him being spiderman.

I feel like that was the point though. It wasnt so mich about spider man but about peter parker BECOMING spider man. So they built it up for a better sequel. Ar first i didnt like the whole broken promose thing at the end but if they're doing what i think they're doing for the sequel it will be pretty damn epic. Also I liked garfield's performance more than maguires though i still think maguire did a pretty decent job.
July 11, 2012 @ 21:54:16
Any speculations of who that is at the end talking to Connors? Also hope future sequels will do with the clone saga, that sh*t with Ben Reilly/Scarlet Spider was DOPE

a serum turning someone evil is pretty cheap. i think the best comparison would be the first raimi spider-man where a serum turns norman osborn into the green goblin. only with norman, he was already a pretty ruthless businessman and asshole. he was a bad father and only cared about work. then, his corporation and position was threatened by the shareholders who wanted to cut him out. he tested the serum out of desperation and it amplified his evil characteristics. but they were evil characteristics that were already existing in the character before turning into the green goblin.

compared to curt conners who was a nice and friendly scientist who suddenly turns evil. ok, that's kind of like dr. octopus in spider-man 2. only doc ock lost his wife in the accident and that was the straw that broke his back. in his mind, he had to complete his experiment no matter what or else his wife's death would have been in vain. he didn't want to be a villain, he wanted to complete his experiment. he even tells spider-man in their first encounter to stay out of his way. then harry hires doc ock to hunt spider-man and he becomes spider-man enemy. but this was all so he can receive resources to complete his experiment.

curt conners on the other just turns evil. he starts hunting peter parker at his school... why? because he found out that he's spider-man? but WHY does he want to kill off spider-man? what did spider-man ever do to him? if anything, he should thank spider-man/peter parker for giving him the equation to make the serum. it just doesn't work out to me.

they could have played some angle where conners was mocked in the scientific community for his research and thus his true motivation was to prove everyone wrong and say fuck you all. they could have had moments before he turns into the lizard where you can tell he's salty and wants some kind of revenge and recognition (like how they do in Breaking Bad with Walt) but they kind of abandoned that too. i dunno. does this make sense? i'm just typing now.

i'm a huge spider-man fan. i wanted to love this movie and gave it so many chances. and this movie wasn't that bad. i'm cool with them redefining characters and stories because that's what they do in the comics. but saying this was better than the first two, i'd have to disagree.
July 12, 2012 @ 03:56:30
Nah b^ in the movie connors was fird by ratha if thats any compensation i guess. And he goes after peter because he sees his name all over the cameras he sets up and stuff. The serum gave connors lizard like power and everything but it also screwed with his mind. Whether its a cheap way to make someone evil or not is opinion but i thought he was a good first movie villain compared to the raimi films killing off the green goblin at the end. Like seriously? He was spider man's biggest nemesis. Him being able to go head to head with the green goblin from the getgo? Cmon

Dock ock sucked because they made him out to be this everyday lovable guy. Then after he becomes evil and builds the fusion thing he says he was never evil all along and that his arms were in control the whole time. That was lame

Well I hope carnage shows up in one of these future spider-man films.

yeah, Carnage is pretty much the most raw of all villains in Spider-Man.

Wasn't he talking to himself in that cell? Or a hallucination or something?

Yeah I thought he was talking to himself or hallucinating that's why the other version of himself asked if told Peter the truth about his father, he held back info when he talked to Peter about the work he and his father had done.
