Three sentence movie reviews: The Amazing Spider-Man

I had low expectations going in (Matt had renamed it “The Underwelming Spider-Man” after his viewing) and that probably helped me like this movie.  I liked that Peter Parker’s first girlfriend was smart (and played by Emma Stone) and I enjoyed Parker’s evolution into a superhero.  Overall though, the visions of Toby Maguire’s Spider-man still loomed too large in my head, causing me to protest, “To soon!” to this version.

  1. I love Emma Stone. She's probably the only reason I would watch this movie, but I'm sure I'll wait till it's out on DVD.

    I was talking to a teenaged girl this week & she was saying that she was glad for a new version because she doesn't find Tobey Maguire hot at all. To which I thought, "Does anyone?" Lol.

  2. I've been a Toby Maguire fan since Pleasantville, so you can mark me in that column. However, I've just discovered that his name is spelled Tobey, which I'm not a fan of.

  3. I really liked this version. The nerdy introverted Peter Parker worked for me. And a clever Gwen Stacy was very sweet (no simpering flower there).
