Well, The Amazing Spider-Man ended up being as much of a departure from the Sam Raimi Spidey trilogy as I expected. Tobey Maguire’s series was crazy and fun, almost on a cartoonish level. The Andrew Garfield entry was remarkably less comic, but full of unsuspecting levels of heart and emotion. I think both Spider-Man films have their values and work in their own ways. Frankly, I’m just happy that the new Spider-Man movie didn’t completely suck.
