Re: Spiderman 3 Better Than Amazing

If I had to watch Tobey McQuire "cry" on the screen one more time I was going to be the one to toss a football at something. Probably through the movie screen.

Really these:



Are pretty much the same in my book.

I preferred Maguire as Peter, but I liked Garfield more as Spider-Man.

I think Maguire and Garfield are both very talented actors, but I'm not sure they've been at their best in Spider-Man.

I thought all 3 of Raimi's Spiderman films were bland and boring compared to his earlier work.

You mean like The Evil Dead? Must admit, Spidey having to save MJ from a tree rapin' would have been an interesting turn of events.

Now I want a film where Spider-Man and Ash team up against the Deadites.

Evil Dead definitely, Darkman I was thinking of as well. Much more entertaining superhero movie. Crimewave I also really like, I think Raimi responds better to the challenge of a low budget.

Maguire was okay, but I never really felt he was playing Peter Parker; rather, I felt that Peter Parker was reinterpreted as a Tobey Maguire type of character to accommodate the actor. Whereas Andrew Garfield played a character much closer to the Peter Parker I know. Maybe a bit edgier and angrier than Peter is usually written, but that's actually pretty consistent with how Stan Lee wrote him in the early issues, as a guy with a chip on his shoulder about the bum deals life kept handing him and a desire to show up his naysayers.
