tell me about it...

***SPOILERS***
in addition to the typical Peter bullies the bully scene, there's the basketball scene, the football scene, the scene where no one seems to notice that Parker is about to take on the Lizard
***SPOILERS***

meh, the more I think about it, the lower I want to rate this movie.

I liked it, I wanted to not like it as much as I like the TM spiderman's but I think I like it more. It was fun but not without some flaws. The football denting the goal post, nobody is gonna question that???

I'm wondering if the scene after the credits was Norman Osborn.. pretty sure it was but I've heard internet rumors it could be other villains.

Do they have the "With great power, comes great responsibility" line? That always makes me laugh hysterically.

Yeah, the football post thing bothered me for 2 reasons. 1st, as you said, nobody is going to question that? 2nd, that football was not traveling fast enough to bend it like that anyway. It looked like an accurate, slightly faster throw than a normal person could throw, yet it bent like Superman through the football.

They say it in different words. But it is done way better. In Raimi's, it sounds like something Uncle Ben just pulls out of his ass to set the theme of the movie. In this movie, there are multiple things that come together that actually make the words more profound and meaningful to Parker's life.

I LOVED this movie. Being a crazy Spiderman fan, I was really excited and looking forward to this a LOT. I actually thought this did a much better job of letting us know the real Peter Parker. Also, it kind of let us see the bond between Peter and Uncle Ben. Like that scene in the basement after Peter's fight with Flash. Also, I liked the Lizard a lot as a villain, as it didn't have a purpose of just killing people or making money. All it wanted to do was to create a better world, a more equal one. However, his way of doing that was way too crazy.

One more thing. Does anyone have any ideas on who that guy is after the credits? UGHGHGH IT'S ITCHING ME TO KNOW.

YES. I said the same thing to my friend. And I hated her reaction to Peter's last line. That alone ruined the movie for me lol.

Absolutely loved it! Way better than the first one of the last series.

To me it was clearly Norman Osborn.. The voice and connection to the Lizard made that kind of obvious for me. However, there seems to be a lot of speculation that it may be someone else, so I guess its up for debate. I dont see how the voice and presence wasnt blunt enough for people.

They should save GG for the third movie.

Maybe he needed to survive and decided to take the Green Goblin formula?

In an interview with Ifans, he said that it was a representative from Oscorp, and that Norman Osborn will have a huge part in later movies.

Easily the best Spidey film to date. Both Garfield, and the script, have finally brought to the screen the essence of both Peter Parker and Spider Man.

I thought Tobey was an abomination in the role. Never sold it to me, at all. He was just a guy making the same dumb face over and over again, and then he puts on the spider-man outfit.

I thought the part where he created the suit was a bit rushed. But everything else was good

Also, Martin Sheen killed it as Uncle Ben.

Nobody saw the football being thrown. And will you really believe someone from the stands threw an oval which bent the post? No one is going to question "No one kicked it, maybe the guy from the stand threw it?"

what about the guy who threw it or kicked it towards Parker in the first place?

Still, the ability to palm a basketball so hard that a guy can't pull it out of his single hand and then jumping from the free throw line and breaking a backboard should draw a couple suspicions even if nobody saw the football thing.
