Another reboot, another origin story but how does The Amazing Spiderman compare?

Andrew Garfield Vs Tobey Maguire – Garfield was born to play Spiderman AND Peter Parker. Maguire’s problem was that he made a suitably geeky and awkward PP but wasn’t bad ass enough to be Spidey. Garfield absolutely nails this role, watch everything he is in. Best up and coming actor in Hollywood right now. Watch the red riding series or Boy A for further proof.

Gwen Stacey vs MJ – Easy one this, MJ is a fucking bitch the whole time and Gwen Stacey should always have been the love interest in any Spiderman movie. Emma Stone is also excellent as Gwen, in fact the entire movie is cast brilliantly.

The Lizard Vs Green Goblin – Brave move to go with The Lizard but it just about pays off. To be fair the Green Goblin was also a great character so I’ll call that a draw.

Amazing Spiderman vs Avengers/Dark Knight Rises – Miles better than DKR, not as jaw dropping as the Avengers but maybe… just maybe a better movie. I LOVE SPIDERMAN!!!
