Plus Andrew Garfield is 10x the spidey that tobey was.

Regarding Garfield; he was not the loveable, genuine good guy like Maguire was. Garfield was a mean-spirited d-bag who just followed along the same notes that Maguire did throughout SM 1. He'll never be Peter Parker to me.

THIS is Peter Parker.

That's what that picture makes me think of.

Can't say I really liked any of the Spider-Man movies ithatmuch though.

I used to travel the stars, then I discovered Earth, and these incredibly addicting things called 'Video Games.'

Are you suggesting a Gremlins remake starring Tobey Maguire?
I hope you are.

Fix'd.

But honestly TASM 2 (or whatever it'll be called) sounds like a mess already. Introduce MJ, Harry, Norman, Electro, AND possibly Rhino in one movie? Really?

Dr. Connors/The Lizard better not be thrown to the side, because he was one of the (only) good characters in TASM.

That was the point. If you were taking it seriously, you were doing it wrong!

Er, to expand upon that, it was meant to be a lighter tone than the previous movies, more flashy and fun, which as far as I'm concerned, was always what Spider-Man was about, and what made him so likeable in the first place. He wasn't always so serious like Batman, and wasn't always super-nice and heroic like Super Man. He had more personality, which I felt was better presented in the Amazing Spider-Man movie. So if you were expecting a dark, humanized drama like the Batman movies, you're gonna be disappointed, but personally, I'd never expect that out of a Spider-Man movie.

Don't worry, I wasn't taking it seriously. Nor was I expecting it to be anywhere near as dramatic as Barman. I was a little surprised it didn't even attempt to have a modicum of emotional gravity, which is a big departure from the original trilogy. While there's nothing inherently wrong with that, it means it's only good for some cheap laughs and not worth a second viewing; it doesn't have the staying power of, say, Spider-Man 2. All IMO of course.

The only thing that actually made me laugh (for the right reason) was the scene with Stan Lee's cameo.

Spider-Man shouldn't ever be taken down the dark and gritty route IMO; he's a campy superhero, period. Raimi's trilogy was the near-perfect realization of Spidey on the big screen.

TASM was just trying to follow Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, with little difference compared to SM 1.
