I really tried giving the Andrew Garfield movies a shot, but here’s something that I have to explain regarding the failure of these movies, and this is something that a lot of people in other mediums fail to realize in Spiderman’s essence, which make it so unique. Peter Parker is a nerd. Not a geek, not a regular person with bullies on his back. A pure, unadulterated, nerd. Now, why is this important? Because it allows his character to grow. As soon as he puts his suit on, he suddenly becomes powerful, he becomes confident and sure of himself. This… Read more »

Thank you! You summed up one of the major issues I think made the “Amazing” series less authentic than the Raimi series in a way I hadn’t thought about. McGuire’s Parker really is more like the Peter Parker I remember reading about in the comic books, even though when I read them he was already married to MJ Watson.

Nerds in the traditional sense aren’t as ridiculed as they used to be.

I like both of the movies but I will agree in that I never got the “blood may poison you” scenes and on a personal point, 1. I thought the parent’s subplot weighed both movies down and 2. I wish that Electro had gotten some redemption a la Sam Raimi’s Sandman. I didn’t mind the Gwen Stacy death scene.

I think now that enough time has passed and people are looking at all the Spiderman films objectively, we’re realizing that the first two Raimi films are classics, and felt like the classic Silver Age Spidey we all love.

Now the first Amazing movie is okay, and Garfield is solid as the web slinger…but Spiderman 3 and Amazing 2 are both poorly constructed messes.

Does anyone else feel like something is off about this new format of his? For one it’s very short…too short in fact. It’s like watching Youtube from 5 years ago where everyone tried to squeeze everything in to 10 minute videos because that was about the limit you could post. I like long, drawn out explanations and in depth analysis but this is just a quick clip show with some fancy special effects and doesn’t really seem to say a whole lot that other reviewers haven’t already said and said better in many cases. I no longer look forward to… Read more »

I agree, he can cut to himself talking and probably get away with using more stills if Youtube is being evil with clips.

The reason we love ERoD is because he’s a knowledgeable film buff and fanboy with a fun, fast delivery of analysis. It’s not really the format that bugs me, it’s the lack of substance compared to his old style.

I was jes thinking the same thing before I watched the video. I’ll sometimes let videos slide up to a week, and I watch videos in order of least favorite to favorite. ERod use to be one of the last videos I’d watch (with only Linkara, WTFIWWY and NC coming after.) Today was the first time I felt like “well, let’s get this out of the way,” and it’s a shame to think that way about a person that use to be one of my most enjoyable favorites. EDIT: Although, I will say that I’m enjoying the Legends of Fandom… Read more »
