Today I give credit to the finest of all Spider-Man movies.
Happy April 1st/Fool’s Day everyone!
One movie a day until the reel change happens.

I will spare you a review blurb that uses the title of the movie for a non-clever pun like, “The Amazing Spider-Man is ‘Amazing’” or “Spider-Man spins the Best film of the franchise”. I like to think I am better than that and slightly more clever than most people. I realized that I put this film on my winners list for July Release, but I would like to take back that placement. As far as summer films go, this is one of the bigger disappointments I have seen this summer. Let’s not joke and say that people were clambering for a new Spider-Man installment, except for toy makers. This movie was made because Sony was close to losing the rights of the film if they didn’t do anything with it, thus reverting the rights back to Disney/Marvel. I hate to think that this movie suffered because of those circumstances, but the more I reflect on this movie, the more it seems that it was phoned in from the start and they were playing damage control with all the marketing and tie ins. You know what, fuck it, “The Amazing Spider-Man was Amazingly Bad”. I can’t resist a movie pun.
