A Spider-Man movie we all can relate to
Director Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man" starring Andrew Garfield as the Web Slinger is a truly amazing film. A reboot too soon, maybe, but we needed it. Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 1 and 2 were really good, but Spider-Man 3 was disappointing. Not only that, every generation needs a Spider-Man to look up to and to identify with which could be why we have a reboot so soon. I believe Andrew Garfield's performance as Peter Parker/Spider-Man is truly remarkable as he is much better than Tobey Maguire. Marc Webb ( no pun intended ) handles every scene so well in a way that Sam Raimi could never do, even though he tried. Garfield's on-screen romance with real-life girlfriend Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy is very engaging. Andrew Garfield proves to be a better actor in the Spider-Man costume.. This film is more thoughtful and more dedicated to the original comics as well. I overall enjoyed it and give it a grade of A+. And also, the sequel is better so go see both if you can. Spider-Man is back!!!
