the problem is that the first movies are made and then after we all see them, then the new people can see how to improve it,
it just the way it is, it just happens, the first of anything comes out and people with a fresh outlook take it and see how they can improve,

in that sense Batman Begins and Amazing Spider man are better,
well, not better, but improved, that is a fact, things do get improved after the first, that's just a fact bud

No I meant before Spiderman either no one knew who he is, or they just know he did evil dead,
and then even more people never even saw evil dead but know the pop culture references,
so he wasn't even that big of a name for SM, he became huge now because of SM, like you just said

Honestly man, no matter who directed it spider-man would be a success. You honestly think the average movie goer knows who sam raimi is?

Boll could have directed it and people would still go see it.

Actually, no. Spider-Man could've been a huge misfire, and failed. But it didn't. It won the critics and the audience over, and was a success.

Unless you're Michael Bay, if your movie sucks, word of mouth will kill you.

Sure. Anything's possible. Maybe Spielberg could've made it.

But he didn't. Raimi did. And he did an amazing job at bringing this character to the screen. You can bring up comic inaccuracies, but as a film it works for many people, and still does. That's why this film is divided. Not just by Sam Raimi fans vs. Non Raimi Fans...but with Spider-Man fans, and general film goers as well.

Plain and simple, the people who love this film, love the comic books. The people don't, don't care.

My only problem is, is the people coming out of the woodwork saying they've always hated these films, when they clearly didn't. Like Oscorp. He gave Spider-Man a 8.5 or something, and called it mediocre.

A movie that high is like a good movie, borderline great on the rating scale..:lol


It's like Prequel fans vs OT fans all over again...except with way better films on both sides. :lol

I personally liked the first SM, I did, I own it, it was a really good starting point,

Tobey was a bad cast I think, he looks too bulky, he can act but, I never ever bought him as spiderman,

the same with Mary Jane, they never made me believe they were those characters, but they were good in the movie.

Spiderman 2 was okay but I never understood why people love it so much, Im not saying is bad, but is not amazing either for me, my point is I never loved SM2 even when it came out,

in that case Andrew Garfield feels more like Peter to me, so that is an improvement,
also the spidey work looks better, the swinging looks better, so that was an improvement,
I mean, both movies are good, but those little improvements this one made do matter,
I still like the first one, I will own both the first one and this one

Film studios spend tens of millions on marketing and promoting the film to make sure people jump on the bandwagon. If we all didn't then the studios wouldn't make any money and we wouldn't get any films.

Film studios spend tens of millions on marketing and promoting the film to make sure people jump on the bandwagon.

And most people are lemmings who want to be told what to like and what to do. Most humans cannot think for themselves. This is why saturation advertising exists. But it's a phenomenon to be mocked and avoided, not embraced and celebrated.

Truly great art or entertainment thrives or dies on word of mouth, not marketing.

Flavor of the month right now is Spidey. Back in May it was The Avengers. Soon it will be Bats. Such is the way of the world.

The Amazing Spider-Man - 6.8/10 - Lower than Spider-Man 7.5/10 but above Part 3 6/10. Not even close to Spider-Man 2 9/10.

Spider-Man is my favorite comic book character. I read his books from the mid 70's to the early 90's and reprints from before that period.

It was a bit boring sitting through the first hour origin again and was handled better in the first film.

I liked Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker. Andrew Garfield did alright but reminded way too much of Hayden Christensen in Attack of the Clones.

Martin Sheen as good of a actor as he is wasn't near as good as Cliff Robertson. His Uncle Ben show more caring and had a far more powerful death in the first film. While Power Ranger Goblin looked terrible Willem Dafoe was awesome. Rhys Ifans wasn't much compared to Alfred Molina and Thomas Haden Church.

One area that was a vast improvement over the first film was Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy over snaggletoothed Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson.

The FX did look good. And at least the CGI Spidey had Spidey poses.

Stan Lee scene was good but I think his Thor scene is his best. Someone should have put a cardboard cutout of Steve Ditko somewhere.

Of and the suit still looked terrible. If you can't improve on the original don't even try it. It's lasted for 50 years without stupid blue fingers, leg stripes and sneakers.

The credits scene prolly points towards Osborn though I'd like to see Mysterio.

the thing I didn't get is that they Trashed Captain America but they praised Cowboys and aliens

and while some of the things they said about Captain are true, Fact is Captain is better than Cowboys and Aliens, at least its not dull,
even if captain was not as great as other superhero movies it was a good movie, the other really wasn't, they rip Captain for being cliche, where Cowboys had every cliche written,

Tho the story is as great as Lance Henriksen's performance in the first half.
And even tho I agree that Pumkinhead design looks pretty close to the one from "Alien3" it's still nothing like Giger's and Winston's xenomorphs.

Gee golly gosh.

But regardless, ASM wasn't good to me. And never will be. You can't change that. The Raimi Spider-Man films have held up for me since I was a kid. And still work on different levels today. More so now. Since I actually passed the stages in which Parker went through.

I just thought it was a funny contradiction. You getting pissed at people because they are jumping shark from the Raimi version onto the bandwagon of Webb's. And then you say you joined the bandwagon of "ROTS is horrible and so is AVPR" a few years after "praising" them.

I could really care less if ASM was good to you, seeing your habbits that could change in a couple years if the majority of people like ASM more than the Raimi trilogy. :wink1:

And I do enjoy The Raimi flicks (I can even stand the third one more than other's). This new version is just vastly superior compared to the others IMO.

They are mediocre films compared to the new one (IMO). But they are tolerable. So is the SW prequels.

I've seen FAR worse films then both. What's overrated (http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd196/ZaCHw117/kentucky-fried-chicken-hipster-logo-1-1.jpg) is having an exaggerate opinion about piece of entertainment.

Definitely the weakest 'epic' of the modern era. I'm Irish and I couldn't stand the accents, very offputting. Plus...I just couldn't sympathise with Alexander. In the scenes where his guys are arguing against his campaign, they're all making good points, you side with them...then he has them killed. By the time of the last battle with the elephants I just felt depressed and disgusted at the waste of life, human and animal. The Vangelis music was the best thing about this film.

Epic doesn't even begin to explain it...what a massive s__tstorm. TDK may have the Joker, but this film went above and beyond that. Great performance from Hathaway and JGL, and the ending was perfect.

Only downside was Bane's voice...mostly easy to understand, but there are a few moments where it's just "hrrrmhmmhghghmmrr". He also kinda sounds like Sean Connery :lol

Nonetheless, I found it to be a fantastic ending to the trilogy :rock

I haven't seen it yet, but my guess is that this vaults Bane into the top tier of Batman villains.

It takes something like a big movie to do that ... particularly for those villains that weren't featured in the old 1960s series/movie. The big 60s villians -- Joker, Riddler, Penguin, Catwoman -- are cultural icons. BF and TDK did it for Two Face ... though he was already a bit known. BTAS, and to some extent B&R, did it for Mr. Freeze.

This will do it for Bane.

If you're gonna do a reboot allready,at least be creative enough to come up with something new and fresh like Nolan did with the Batman movies.

The Dark Knight Rises finishes the trilogy on an epic scale. Filled with well known faces, and some unknown, the movie hails back to it's predecessors while making it's own voice heard loud and clear. However there is one voice in this movie that isn't load and clear. Even with voice dubbing, Bane's dialogue proves hard to understand at many times throughout the movie. But while it's hard to fully understand, it is most certainly menacing. Bane is a ferocious character, a monster in the eyes of those who know him. He may not be the charismatic madman the Joker was, but he knows how to drive a city into chaos, and how to strike fear into it's citizens.

Catwomen also deserves a mention for her charm, wits and heart. Anne Hathaway has done a stand out job, but it's nothing we haven't seen from her. You get what you came for is the best way to describe her character. As always Christian Bale executes Batman perfectly, but this time around he injects so much more emotion and determination into the role. As he must learn to rise from the shadows, he must also learn to embrace fear, and use it as his strength. Honourable mentions go out to all the usual cast members, but I don't want to say much else. Biggest gripe which will affect the score; first half hour or so was lacking severely. Trying to set up the multiple plot points has revealed Nolans weakness. But fear not, the last 2 and a bit hours are awesome:rock

The Dark Knight Rises - 9/10

Decided to watch these again before TDKR.

Batman Begins 7.5/10 - enjoyable reboot to the franchise. I felt this movie had more Bruce Wayne/Batman than its sequel. Some miscasting with the former Mrs Cruise. Woman cannot act and she took me out of the picture every time she appeared on screen. Michael Cain, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman and to a lesser extent Bale were all excellent.

The Dark Knight 8/10 slightly superior sequel, at least one more mark for the use of true IMAX. Really gave an epic appearance to the movie. While the Joker rightly gets alot of the plaudits in this movie I felt that Aaron Eckarts performance as Harvey Dent and then Two Face was the more compelling and tragic villain/character. Again good solid performances by all actors.

The whole is better than the sum of its parts, but many of the parts nag at me. I think it's a worthy conclusion to the Nolan trilogy, but expectations have a way of setting lofty ideas of what this movie was going to be for me. It's not fair to judge it on those terms, but that's the way it is.

It had a better final act then TDK did. TDK had a great last half of the 3rd act...but that ferry scene, I can't stand. I was interesting the first time, when I didn't know it existed in the film, but everytime I watch it, I want to hit fast forward.

I actually agree with this, word for word. I rewatched BB and TDK the day before seeing TDKR, and it was a struggle to sit through the latter half of TDK. TDKR is too new for me to claim that it doesn't suffer from this same problem, but I definitely liked TDKR's third act more than TDK's.

Batman Dark knight Rises 10/10

The blockbuster movie of 2012 was The Avengers, Amazing Spiderman & Batman DKR. Out of the 3, I enjoyed the Avengers the most (10/10) closely followed by Batman & Spiderman which I gave it 9.5/10.

My first glance was this took a long time to get to Bruce Wayne donning the bat suit. Took almost 1 hour before he wore his suit. Anne Hatheway was a surprise cast & she was perfect for the role. Bane was another character which i was pleasantly surprise at. My ownly quam was that i wish he was based more like the comic book. However, there was a scene that Bane did something to Batman that was very true to the comics. With all batman villians, Heath Ledger's Joker would reign surpreme.

A very surprise twist as the movie goes on. I like how Chris Nolan ties the previous 2 movies to this also. We got to delve into who Bruce Wayne is and what he represents to Gotham.

It's sad to see this trilogy ends but both Chris Nolan & Christian Bale had made this the best Batman series ever. It will be hard to surpass. Go see this movie guys!
