The Amazing Spider-Man

Too soon, too soon. If this Spider-Man movie came out before the Toby version did it would be considered an OK movie. However, the world didn't need a remake ... yet. The story (re)introduces the teenager who gets bitten by a mutant spider and gains its abilities, with this version focusing on the Lizard and Gwen and Captain Stacey--for those of you who know the canon. There are plenty of flaws: the movie is slow, the dialogue often dull, there's a villain that seems unknown and pointless, and I always have a problem with good-looking people being high school nerds (sorry, it's the law of teenagers that that never happens (and when was Gwen ever a science chick?)).
