My favorite character can beat up your favorite character.
This reminds me of how Superman Earth One was apparently like Twilight.
Yeah, people tend to thing Batmans origins end all and be all is the moment that his parents were gunned down. That wasn't his origin story, that was a pivotal moment in his life that set up the origin to come.
Same with Spiderman. His getting abilities from the spider bite wasn't his origin, his origin (what made him Spider-Man) wasn't even the moment that Uncle Ben died, it was the moment that he realized that he had the opportunity to stop the man who would kill his uncle, and didn't. That is THE moment that makes Spider-Man Spider-Man.
For me it comes down to the fact that I just can't get any interest up for this film. Maybe its the actors or maybe it the plot or maybe it was just to soon for a reboot of the franchise I don't know, but I honestly have pretty much zero interest in this film.
The Twilight comparisons baffle me. So any movie with high school romance and a bit of angst is like Twilight now? That kind of thing was never done before Twilight? Hmmmm.
My guess is that it's probably more like 500 Days of Summer, which was awesome. It's angsty, it's about young romance, but it's kinda charming and comedic, rather than poorly written melodrama with cardboard cut out cypher characters like the Twilight series.

I sort of felt also it was a semi dick pete that let the burglar go which was the moment, so he never had much time to be a dick if at all as spiderman, sure he talks a lot but he isn't really potty humor and he tends to try and finish fights fast, all the trailers I've seen it looks like Pete is just a average dick. I was expecting/hoping for a ultimates pete but imo I don't see that from the previews. The movie seems to me like a complete reboot comedy/romance of the franchise.
Very little interest for the film, actors, plot, reboot personally. Would have rather seen a Gwen Stacey becomes Symbiote hero story and make pete be dork boy, sort of Empowerish, but I'd also love an Empowered movie too. Make Chloe Moretz Empowered and I will hold a sign saying this way to the show.

He gives it 4 stars out of 5 though. So it's positive.
