AMAZING!

By ClarkBar5804
Being a long time Spider Man fan, I really liked this movie. To me Andrew Garfeild was a more believable Peter Parker/Spider Man than Tobey. The different spin on the origin of him getting his...

The Amazing Spider-Man

By Tmyster89
The amazing spider-man movie was better then the other three spider-man movies because they finally follow the comic book correct in my opinion. I can't wait to but the amazing spider-man on blu-ray/...

Not the best Spidey Film, but still pretty good!
