For those of you who are cautioning against seeing ‘The Amazing Spider-Man,’ I ask you to have faith in director Marc Webb and his wonderful cast. This was the surprise movie of the summer for me, because I expected so little from it. I mean, come on, another reboot after only five years since the last Spider-Man film, but hey, Webb and his team pulled it off spectacularly. I don’t mean to give into hyperbole, and I’m not saying that this is one of the best films ever made, however, I do think it’s the best Spider-Man movie to date. Let me know what you think of the movie, and this new trailer in the comments section below. Hope you all had a great holiday.
