This was a lot better than the previous series. They seemed to do a lot more justice to the origins and feel of Spider-Man. It was darker while capturing important events in Spider-Man's history. The start with Gwen Stacy, high school, etc. The actor who played him also did a great job capturing Spidey's personality (IMO, from what I know of his character). He was sarcastic, played awkward EXTREMELY well, and his training was very effective in mimicking Spidey's movements. I liked Emma Stone as Gwen a lot and they had good chemistry together. She's a lot hotter as a blonde (IMO). They did a good job of building up the story, giving you the foundation to set the story and rest of the franchise.
Rating: 8 for movies in general, but an 8.5 when compared to all other comic-book movies. It was well done IMO and I look forward to the sequels.
8/10. liked the first better but this is a near equal. suspenseful and engaging throughout
7/10. i'm surprised i've never come across a movie with this idea. solid acting. it could have been more groundbreaking with better character development and slightly better CGI. that said, this is how you craft a movie on a small budget. wire fans will recognize jordan as 'wallace'.

Pulling John 8/10 - This one is a documentary about arm wrestling. Follows 3 arm wrestlers. John Brzenk who went undefeated for over 2 decades, Travis Bagent a loud, cocky young buck, and Alexy Voevoda a tank of a Russian. Very interesting and since most of us never heard of these guys, some of the matches shown have some great drama to them.
Entertaining enough but nothing special. They should have got a younger and hotter girl instead of Reese Witherspoon, to me she wasn't worth the fuss. Wouldn't ever watch it again. Not sure why Tom Hardy was in this.
