I've seen more and more complaints about this online in recent years. I dunno...I've always thought it looked okay.
Of course it looked okay. Sometimes it seems like people just have an inability to judge a film in context to the time it was made. It's getting increasingly difficult, especially for those who don't really understand the process, because the quality of CGI, just like the computers that are used to process it, increases exponentially as time goes on.

In the past, there were only so many things effects wise you could do "in camera." There was less money involved. Effects progressed slowly. With the advent of technology, computers and CGI, the abilities and quality of effects are expounded on almost monthly.

You then get people watching a movie from just a few years ago and thinking it should be on par with movies made today, and suddenly the effects from the older film are "terrible."

I mean in comparison to CGI stuff today. I think it holds up.

They've just made some very big strides in CGI since then is all.
Also, much of the swinging in this new movie isn't even CGI at all, if the director is to be believed.

I see. I think by today's standards it's a little dodgy, but nothing terrible. But for the time, it was perfectly good CGI.

There have been set videos of practical swinging/stunts




You can see this scene in the trailer.

Here's a scene from the movie. Nothing too exciting, it features Peter rather than Spidey and is quite reminiscent of a scene in Raimi's second movie, featuring Bruce Campbell as a snooty usher. But what's that peeking out of Peter's bag?!

Well this clip fully proves Mark Webb's point.
They no doubt are doing new things with the characters.
A reboot was for sure in order. No debate on that.

This film is feeling very Deja vu.

I can concede that web swinging is a staple and hard to make it feel "new" after 3 films. This however isn't a scene, an interaction that had to happen. It did though cause it's a proven element on film with this character. Not new Mr.Webb, not fresh as you said you were going for.

The situation and dialogue seems to come off more cartoonish here.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

The fact the situation is even being repeated, interpretations aside of cartoonish, is what is lame imo.

I laughed when Peter was asked if Gwen was tutoring him! LOL. Great clip.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

That's such a common type of scene, though. So I don't know if I'd be too critical of it being a repeat of something Raimi did. Sure I could see where some people might call if cliched (I don't really have a problem with it, but I could see where others might), but it plays out differently enough from the SM2 scene that it doesn't bother me.
EDIT: I wonder if that scene leads up to the clip from the trailer where he webs up to Gwen's room, and she asks how he got up there?

Most likely, seems logical anyway.
If not it sets up that line/moment for another time.

I bet the new movie will have a scene where Spider-Man punches somebody. Dammit! Raimi did that! Idealess hacks are in charge, I tell ya!
