I agree. They got Peter Parker and Spider-Man all wrong in the first trilogy. I don't think they did any research about the Spider-Man comic books before making those movies.

4. The characters. Uncle Ben and Aunt May were perfect. You mentioned Emma Stone, but I thought she was really good in this movie. All of the actors did a really good job. Especially Garfiled.

The Lizard was also handled really well. Watch the Amazing Spider-Man and then go back and look at Venom from Spider-Man 3. Venom is one of the greatest comic book villains of all time. Marc Webb did a lot more with a lot less.

Have you ever read a Spiderman comic? They are f*cking funny. Spiderman isn't dark, and making something darker doesn't make it better.

Aunt May in the Raimi trilogy was perfectly cast. Uncle Ben shouldn't be in a Spiderman movie.

The Lizard looked like shit, Doc Ock looked awesome.

Webb didn't do more with less. I don't even know what that's supposed to mean.

Plus Raimi did the silver age, and he captured those ridiculously well.

Have you ever read a Spider-Man Comic? The movie was the origin of Spider-Man, his teenage/early years were dark. His first love was Gwen Stacy, not Mary Jane. He had web shooters, not the power to shoot webs out of his wrists. The real Spider-Man often cracks jokes, like he did in Amazing Spider-Man. You got none of that in the original trilogy.

I liked the original trilogy, especially Spider-Man 2. But when it comes to staying somewhat true to the comics, The Amazing Spider-Man did a far better job than the Raimi trilogy.


And I wasn't comparing The Lizard to Doc Ock, I compared him to Venom.

He didn't fuck up the Lizard is what I mean. Venom could have been one of the most epic movie villains ever. But he ended up being awful and completely rushed. Eddie Brock wasn't even Eddie Brock ffs. It would have been better if he just left Venom out of the movie all together.



Just clearing that up.

*Nothing else before we decided to go home.

No one is down on doing anything tonight so I'll just chill @ home.

I ordered a simple chicken sandwish meal... Took over 8 minutes to get it done. It was really bad. Real real bad. I actually offered to work there because holy shit that was an experience quite frankly I'd like to forget.

Are BKs usually that empty and bad ??

I live in the middle of the city so no we have a couple of Burger Kings that are always filled at peak hours, there is also five billion mcdonalds that are always packed.

Worst part of Stockholm though is that H&M is on every turn you go.

And I wasn't comparing The Lizard to Doc Ock, I compared him to Venom.

Shitty teen storylines were ret-conned after the comic was established. Just like Wolverine and his stupid bone claws.

They chose MJ because she was a big part in the 90s (especially the cartoon) and would be more relevant to non comic fans.

Web shooters were avoided because that would take a few minutes to explain how Peter was that mechanically smart at the end of high school. It's much easier to just have it be a power and move the story along.

I do wish there were a few more one liners in Raimi's, but that doesn't bother me much.

The tone of the first two Raimi movies was like the comic. The new one just tried to piggyback off of the 'dark and emo' superhero shit around now.

Venom looked like shit, Sandman looked like shit, Lizard looked like shit. The Green Goblin looked adequate and Ock was great.
