In response to my sporting friend Mr Head’s post, i would like to provide a pithy retort.
“Toby Maguire is good and expresses well Peter’s pain and awkwardness.”
Look at that quality sad face.
““with great power comes great responsibility” line was great. I remember it. People remember it.”
This quote becomes cheapened when we realise Uncle Ben stole it from a Polio survivor and reworded it; “In a democratic world, as in a democratic Nation, power must be linked with responsibility” – Franklin D. Roosevelt
“But as Raimi’s Spiderman was part of the genesis of the new superhero genre, you can’t really accuse it of being formulaic.”
I did nothing of the sort. I merely pointed out the merits in attempting to re-work these pre-established notions.
“Raimi’s Spiderman is neither kiddie nor camp.”
You might argue that the last video is from Spider-Man 3. I know it is, but i couldn’t help but include it. Ha!
