Yeah, I think I'd probably go with the Raimi films too as they are a lot more fun. Though I like how Garfield's Spider-Man actually cracks jokes when he's in costume although I agree a lot of them fell flat.
Here's hoping Felicia is the next film's love interest. It would be something different and Peter can use all the help he can get. It's unlikely they'll be getting Shailene Wooley back as MJ and they are going to need a hell of an actress to pull of MJ after Emma Stone's Gwen. I think audiences might end up resenting Mary Jane. Stone's Gwen completely blew Dunst's Mary Jane away.
Despite the rush nature (something the recent Spider-Man films have had trouble with) I enjoyed the Peter and Harry friendship.
