Still, a lot of that stuff doesn't fly.
Also, I didn't see this,
What about in the first film when Peter loses his Uncle. His father figure that raised him since he was a kid?
Within seconds Maguire goes from real tears to an angry rage upon hearing that the NYPD have found the man that took away his Uncle.
Or how about later when he learns that it was all his fault and has to contemplate how he's going to tell Aunt May on top of the Chrysler building gargoyle?
And I guess there's nothing "real" about the father/son relationship between Dafoe and Franco or the witty banter with Simmons' J Jonah Jameson and his daily bugle staff.
I love Sheen but is he anywhere as loveable or caring as Cliff Robertson's Uncle Ben? Which "responsibility" speeches/talks is more convincing, the one in the first Spider-Man or TASM.
Molina Ock isn't good? Dafoe doesn't add depth to his Goblin with his own genuine creepiness?
I mean I can see them not being someone's cup a tea. But I don't see how anyone can think they're utter trash.
