Honestly, in hindsight, I don't think Rami's films are anything to have praise over (especially the third one.)
One was just about perfect (Kirsten Durnst notwithstanding). Two was very good. Three was a bit crowded, but still more than acceptable.
They were good for it's time and certainly helped to "re-define" and "mainstream" comic book-hero movies but since then we've had quite a few comic book movies that have really set the bar high and in comparison the Rami movies just look... lame.
Not to you want to talk about superhero films that look lame next to the current crop, look at the Singer X-Men films...

Hopefully the new movie will bring the right "tone" and "edge" to the Spider-man franchise so it's a little more in step with what present-day comic book-hero movies are doing.
Based on the trailer I saw, I'm not holding my breath.
