The Amazing Spider-Man is only mediocre at swinging from shit.

All the Internets are buzzing right now with the new and improved trailer for The Amazing Spider-man. In all honesty, and if you’ve been listening to any of the shows, or hanging around outside my living room window (please stop), I am not looking forward to this movie all that much. I mean yes, I am looking forward to it in the standard amount I guess, but I really have no excitement built up for this movie.

I cant quite figure out why I am not excited though. Maybe its because they started moving on this reboot before Spider-man 3 was even released in theaters. Or maybe because I’m not buying the emo, dark depressed, me against the world Andrew Garfield – the kid who plays Peter Parker. Or maybe its because, for the love of God, it still looks cheesy as all hell seeing someone swing from buildings!!!

I don’t understand how this could possibly be difficult! Michael Bay can use CGI to turn a Rubik’s cube into a god damn robot the size of the Sears Tower with more moving parts than the number of plastic surgeries Joan Rivers has had, but for some unknown reason nobody can seem to make the simple physics of an object swinging up, and then swinging back down look real! Its ridiculous!!!

Either way, as Paul and I say after talking about a movie that we really aren’t all that interested in… I’ll see it. And you know what, I will probably think its OK. But I promise you this… I WILL be covering my eyes during all “swinging from buildings and shit” scenes.

Don't be mad Jake. Its not his fault he cant swing like meeee!

    After watching this new trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, I gotta admit…I’m getting on board. I agree, Spidey swinging from rooftop to rooftop just doesn’t carry the same awe as it once did. I mean, it only feels like 5 years since Sam Raimi brought us emo-Spider-Man and the lackluster appearance of my favorite super villain of all time, Venom. …Oh wait, it HAS only been 5 years.

    But, this trailer… I actually find myself getting excited! Me-of-the-past would really give Me-of-the-now the old what for! This trailer gives us a good feel for the film’s attempt to be more loyal to the comics, while still having serious tone. We see a wise cracking Spider-Man in a scene, as he toys with one thug. We also get a close up of the web-slinging wrist gadgets Peter will use this time (Sam Raimi created the “organic” webs for his films). Even The Lizard is starting to look cool, after seeing glimpses of him other than in Pez form. Although, is The Lizard in a bathroom stall during that quick cut??? Apparently even super villainy succumbs to potty breaks eventually.

    The one thing I am NOT looking forward to, and I think you’ll agree…Andrew Garfield’s hair. Just….no.
