The Amazing Spider-Man

MovieBob comes to you with a very special Tuesday episode to find out just how amazing is The Amazing Spider-Man.

Watch Video

never planned to see it and now i'll make sure not to.

Also why do all your tuesday reviews have movies that suck?

Could you slow down next time? Seriously, don't talk that fast time.

I wasn't planning on seeing it in the first place, because from what I gathered from the trailers it was going to be bad, and I guess Bob is telling us: Watch at your own peril.

SO, yeah.... I'll skip it.

Ouch! That was harsh. Sure, I wouldn't be suprised if it were all true, but still, harsh.

Are we still getting a friday episode or was this it for the week?

Also why do all your tuesday reviews have movies that suck?

Probably because he drops a review early to warn people not to go see it as soon as he can.

cheers bob, glad to know the stink that haunted this through production is still on it.

Sooo, Bob didn't like it.

The reviews for this film have really been all over the place and seeing as I didn't think the Green Lantern was actually that bad Bob saying its (very slightly) better won't change my plans to go see it after work tomorrow.

...How do you make a Spider man movie with out J. Jonah Jameson?

I really shouldn't be so happy this film fails so hard, But Fuck Fox.Now we just have to wait for the miserable Wolverine sequel to be done with.

Don't worry Movie Bob, Peter Parker will be...

*puts on sunglasses*


I thought Spider-Man 3 messed up Uncle Ben's death so badly that anything would be an improvement. I guess I was wrong.

Wow, thoughest review since The Expendables.

I thought the suit looked better than the other movies one.

I think they changed it because the didn't want to make the same movies just with other actors, i dont think you would praise it if they did.

...How do you make a Spider man movie with out J. Jonah Jameson?

This was my question as well. He is an iconic part of the Spider man mythos.

Yesh, I haven't seen you rage that much since the Green Lantern review. From the sound of it, it seen this year isn't good for Spider-man per say (well I don't know what going with him in the comic but I do know that Ultimate Spider-man is aweful).

Either way it look like my question had been answer to wheather to watch this or Prometheus if I'm going to the cinema any time soon before The Dark Knight Rises.

Ouch. I was really hoping this movie wasn't going to suck as hard as everyone thought it was going to, but now I'm definitely not seeing it after hearing this.

Woah, that's harsh. I almost feel bad about it now but... i liked it. I really really liked it. Maybe more than i liked Sam Raimis first Spiderman. Uh... so... i guess i have terrible taste in movies. Guess i have to work on that.

Seems to me all the complaints have been based on your conceptions of classical spider man. i did not see any complaints on the movie as a movie itself apart from CGI and the lizard character. you go thru saying peter parker is emo, skater, slacker. you would have prefered a single stereotyped character? it seems to me he is more of a normal person, more grounded on reality. a real person =/= stereotype. i dunno, it just seems silly to bash a movie because it bashes your notions of spider man, such as uncle bens death and his parents and relations.

i would not take this review as is people. it stinks of fanboy wishes being broken, causing an aggravation of his opinion on the movie.

Well, at least the tie-in movie video game is decent...

The worst thing is that one of friends is super pumped for this movie and now she's gonna be all disappointed.

soooo glad movies not good, co-workers bet me it was gonna be awesome hah am i gonna be rich! now i just hope my prediction for dark knight rises is right

I go to see nearly every super-hero movie, sometimes just out of morbid curiosity. But I was thinking about giving this one a pass completely. everything about the trailers and promotion of this movie has convinced me that it's likely to suck. I keep wishing it didn't happen, so that the rights would revert to Marvel, who have been doing a really good job with their own movies. Bob venting this much bile though has me wondering, could it really be that bad? Hopefully, it'll hit the second run theater soon. So it won't matter much to the studio's profits when I go to see how bad it is just so I can make fun of it later.

I was hoping for Andrew Garfield's sake that it would be good. I was actually hoping that it would be good so I could feel a bit smug at the people who said (it will be terrible, because we "know" films and we "know" better than you).

okay then, thats another movie I wont go see

I wonder if the Avengers is still playing... hmmmmmm...

Strangely enough, opinions about this Spider-Man movie appear to be all over the board. Some reviews say it's great, others say it's mediocre, and some (like Bob here) say it's piss-poor. I'm betting it'll wind up being just sort of okay, doing some things right and others wrong. I'll wind up seeing it myself, if only because I like Spider-Man.

I had an incling that this wouldnt be very good, its far too early to start reviving this franchise anyway.

Plus, (*armour on, sheilds up, take cover in the bunker*), I'm getting bored of comic book flicks now, every month its something else "comic/graphic novel" related. After the anti-climax of the Avengers I think Dark Knight Rises will be my last film of this type for quite some time.

Called it months ago. But I am still pissed. I love Spidey. The fact that it sucks really makes me sad. Spidey deserves better.

Don't mince words, Bob. Tell us how you REALLY feel. :)


...How do you make a Spider man movie with out J. Jonah Jameson?

This was my question as well. He is an iconic part of the Spider man mythos.

Because JK Simmons IS JJJ. There is no one they could've found to play him that wouldn't have pissed people off, so they just made the Daily Bugle into CNN and called it a win for Sony for out thinking the drones called Spider-Man fans.
That said, FUCK Sony.

I heard a few reviewers has been saying that it's bad, but there has been people saying it's good. I'm still going to see it because I like to form my own opinions and never take anything a reviewer says to heart.

Bob, I like it when you get angry. Not because something happened to make you angry, but because it'f fun to watch you eviscerate this shit. I may rent this later on when I'm feeling particularly masochistic, but no way I'm wasting my money on seeing it in theaters.

Figured that if it was getting an "emergency" episode to itself that it would ether be great and Bob was being apologetic or it was Shin and Bob here was goign to go Kenshiro on it's ass before making it explode in an ironic manor.

Shame it's the latter, really is.

I thought Spider-Man 3 messed up Uncle Ben's death so badly that anything would be an improvement. I guess I was wrong.

It's what movie franchises do when they're completely out of ideas; Retcon shit in order to keep the story going. And Spider-Man 3 did it twice including Harry Osborn's amnesia. *ugh*

As for this new Spider-Man movie... Bob sounds a bit too pissed for me not to take most of what he said with a grain of salt.
I could already tell by the trailer that I probably wasn't going to like this reboot though, but as I always say with every reboot/sequel/prequel; We'll always have the original.

I'll give it a rent when the time comes.

First I feel bad in hoping this movie to bomb so hard that Sony will finally sold back the rights back to Disney/Marvel, unfortunately like Bob said it won't fucking happen. This movie is no. 1 right now here in the Philippines(as of this writing). But after watching this review I kinda feel justified.

BTW the famous "with great power, comes great responsibility" line, Spidey didn't say it or anyone in the movie at all.

Great, now I'm in "weekend is almost here" mode. :)

I figured this would would suck, sadly. Thanks for the advance warning, Bob. Should've listened to you when you said not to see Green Lantern.

Whenever someone asks me why I think your opinion should be taken with a grain of salt half the time, I'll point em to this video. You've been against this movie since before anything got announced besides that it's going to happen. And it shows. Even if this movie was The Dark Knight levels of good, you'd probably still say it was bad.
