The Amazing Spider-Man (Action 2012)

It's been close to a decade since Tobey Maguire's Spider-man was released, and as I recall that was a pretty good movie at the time. This one was just as good if not better. It had excellent acting, special effects, and sometimes quirky dialog. Yeah Andrew Garfield, who plays Peter Parker, is one odd duck. Either he's like that in real life or is just a damn good actor.

The story for this one seemed more grounded in reality and less free-spirited like the main Spider-man trilogy. By this I mean that although kids would most certainly enjoy it, I think it was meant for an older crowd. I personally liked the change and from the current imdb rating shows, it looks like others did as well.
Rating - B
