    I could agree with Batman Begins. The orginal Batman with Michael Keaton was good for it's time and Batman Returns was ok. Batman Forever and Batman & Robin were terrible adaptions and disgrace to the Batman name.

    Batman Begins & The Dark Knight were the best Batman films. You can tell it was inspired by Batman: Year One graphic novel.

    on the real Batman Forever was not that bad, if they would of stayed with Burton's gotham city vision and same vehicles it would of been better to digest. It wasnt great but it was not bad either, I fucked with Carrey's Riddler and Tommy Lee's 2 Face.

    Trust me man from a long time comic book collecter and reader. Batman Forever was a joke. Nothing like the comics. Not no where near close. Tommy Lee's portrayal of Two- Face was pathetic. Aaron Eckhart was more in line with how Two-Face character is from the comics. Tim Burton vision of Batman was cool and gothic. But it wasn't DC comics Batman. Christopher Nolan vision of Batman not 100% exact neither. But it's a lot more closer to Frank Miller version of Batman. Which make it more closer to the comic than any other adaptation. As for Jim Carrey The Riddler, his character was too goofy. The Riddler is clever, witty and comes off confident with some arrogance. None of those trademarks were found in Carrey's version of The Riddler. Die hard comic fans hated those versions of Batman.

    Yeah but im saying if Burton would of stayed on and had Carey and Tommy, they would of been more darker and maybe closer to pleasing the comic book fans. Batman and BMR is two of my favorite movies, tho I admit im not a big comic book fan so my opinion mighht not hold much weight at all but I like Burtons fims over Batman Begins, I just loved everything from the costumes, how gotham was portrayed, the story and the villians. Micheal Keaton is also my favorite Batman, so maybe im also a little biased. I was devistated as a young boy when Val Kilmer was the new Batman.

    I must say, I am interested. I'm not really trippin like some people are with rebooting and etc...because I didn't get interested in the first Spider-Man until way after it came out on DVD. I probably won't see this until it come out on Blu-ray.

    BTW...is that the beesh from Superbad?

    The thing with Batman Begins is that even with the whole back story in it it was really boring to me. I worked at Hollywood Videos around that time and alot of the customers had my same opinion, it was just real slow and a little boring. It seem like folks wasnt all into it til the Dark Knight came out then all of a sudden people started becoming fans.

    Hi friends,
    Waited for a long time and finally managed to get the action of ASM, It's a commonly well made movie, improved visuals than its human module. But did it need to be made in such a hurry? The Amazing Spider Man has come up with a new twist on an old story: it's similar to seeing a whole new making.
    Does anyone like to say something about the ASM?

    Im going to see this movie in a few hours and will share my thoughts. It has received mostly positive reviews. The few negative reviews all complain about the same thing. It being a reboot too soon and familiar territory of Peter Parker being bitten by a radioactive spider and Uncle Ben being killed. Well duh, that's Spider-man backstory morons. Why would they change important parts of the character background?

    My cousin seen the midnight showing and said it was a great movie. Better than all Sam Raimi versions, yes even better than Spider-Man 2. He said it was as great a reboot as Batman Begins. That's good news to me! Anyway will go see in a few. If you seen the movie , post your thoughts.

    Just seen it, and I must say I like it better then the Rami version. It was a good movie, my brother thinks it is still not touching Spiderman 2 but better then the rest easily. The first hour of the movie is pretty funny, I enjoyed it alot.

    I seen it last night and I really enjoyed it. The audience was laughing and cheering just as much as they were for the Avengers. It wasn't as packed. But that could be cause it was Tuesday and not a Friday night.

    Anyway I enjoy this movie more than Raimi versions as well. Raimi versions was more light-hearted and Marc Webb version has a more darker and serious tone. Also I think Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone were perfectly cast. As they make a great Peter Parker/Spider-Man & Gwen Stacy. Their parts were well acted. Tobey Maguire was an ok Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Kirsten Dunst was a terrible Mary-Jane Watson.

    I agree the first half of the movie was funny, the subway scene for instance was pretty funny. Also his wise cracks and one liners were much more amusing than they were in the Raimi versions. There was plenty of action, not on the level as the Avengers. but there were a lot of action scenes. Him searching for Uncle Ben's killer, evading the police, and his fights with The Lizard were well executed.

    There is one thing though, if you stay after the credits, there is a mid-credit scene, where Dr. Curt Connors is in jail talking to some shadowy figure who has a hat. Was it himself he was talking too, imagining seeing some one there? Was it Michael Morbius, Norman Osborne, Mysterio? I wonder who it was and also why would they spoil this scene by showing it in the trailers? It takes the element of surprise away.

    Overall it was a fantastic movie!

    'The Amazing Spider-Man' breaks US box office record?

    Reboot reportedly takes $35 million on its first day of release - a record for a Tuesday opening






    The Amazing Spider-Man has reportedly set a US box office record on its first day of release.

    Sony Pictures insiders told Deadline that the superhero reboot earned $35 million (£22 million) at the American box office yesterday (July 3) – a figure which would make the highest ever total for a Tuesday opening. The existing record for a Tuesday opening was set by Transformers, which took $27.8 million (£17.8 million) on Tuesday July 3, 2007.

    A source at Sony Pictures called the total "one huge number" and described the opening night as "an unbelievable start to what should be a very exciting six days". However, Deadline also reported that rival studios are estimating the film's first day takings at a slightly smaller – but still record-breaking – $32 million (£20 million).

    In addition, Deadline revealed that The Amazing Spider-Man received a very positive "A-" grade from CinemaScore, a market research film that surveys cinema-goers to rate their viewing experiences. Among under-18s, the film earned an even higher "A" grade.

    The Amazing Spider-Man, which stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, also opened in UK cinemas yesterday (July 3). A sequel is already scheduled for a May 2014 release, although the script has yet to be written. Garfield has previously revealed that he is keen to reprise his role in a second film.

    The Amazing Spider-Man Beating The Avengers International Box Office Openings

    By: Scott Johnson on July 1, 2012



    And away we go. There have been many eyes focusing on Sony’s reboot of The Amazing Spider-Man, which premiered in some international markets this weekend. In what would likely be a guaranteed hit in any other summer, there has been much speculation over if Spider-Man would get lost in the shadow of The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises. Well, according to early foreign box office estimates, the old webhead is doing quite well for himself.
    Deadline reports that The Amazing Spider-Man is actually opening bigger than The Avengers in the international markets where it has premiered. In Korea, The Amazing Spider-Man reportedly took in $13 million, which beat The Avengers opening in that market. In India, The Amazing Spider-Man reportedly took in over $5 million more than The Avengers. No numbers for Singapore, Hong Kong, and the Pillippines, but Deadline describes the film as having huge openings there as well.



    The Amazing Spider-Man will premiere at the U.S. box office on July 3, 2012. Will, the success in the international market carry over to the U.S. market? No one knows for sure, but Sony has to be feeling optimistic at this point in time. While the early reviews for The Amazing Spider-Man haven’t been over-the-top rave reviews like The Avengers received, the reviews have definitely been very positive.
    Spider-Man is also arguable Marvel’s best known character, and pre-Avengers he was the Marvel character with the biggest success record at the box office. Spider-Man has starred in three different films among the top twenty-five highest grossing movies of all time at the U.S. box office. No other superhero (not even Batman) can claim that consistent record of success.
    According to Box Office Mojo, the first Spider-Man movie took in $403.7 million, followed by Spider-Man 2 at $373.5 million, and lastly Spider-Man 3 at $336.5 million. While some might read the declining numbers as declining interest for Spider-Man, it likely has more to do with the quality of the various movies. Even though Spider-Man 3 had the lowest total box office, it actually had the largest opening weekend for a Spider-Man movie at $151.1 million. The movie just lost steam quickly because it was widely regarded as the weakest of the three Spider-Man movies.
    If the early reviews hold up, Sony looks like it could very well be restoring Spider-Man to movie greatness after he slipped with Spider-Man 3. Could it be that the top three movies at the U.S. box office in 2012 will all be superhero movies?

    Box office report: 'The Amazing Spider-Man' scores $140 million in six-day debut

    by Grady Smith



    That’s a lot of cash caught in Spidey’s web!
    Sony’s $220 million reboot The Amazing Spider-Man debuted atop the box office with $65 million over its first weekend and a big $140 million in its first six days. The 3-D blockbuster played in 4,138 theaters and earned a $15,708 per theater average over the Friday-to-Sunday period. Of that $140 million, $14.3 million came from IMAX screens. Worldwide, the tentpole has already earned $341.2 million after two weekends of international release.
    While The Amazing Spider-Man started off softer than any of the previous web-slinging installments (After six days, 2002′s Spider-Man had earned $144.1 million, 2004′s Spider-Man 2 had earned $180.1 million, and 2007′s Spider-Man 3 had earned $176.2 million — and none of those had 3-D or IMAX ticket prices), its robust debut put to rest any chatter that Sony had made a grave mistake by rebooting the franchise with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. Clearly, the Marvel character is a major draw.
    Like fellow superhero reboots Batman Begins and X-Men: First Class, which started with $48.7 and $55.1 million, respectively, The Amazing Spider-Man may have garnered somewhat smaller numbers while convincing audiences to check out a whole new Spidey iteration, but its run will open the doors for even more successful sequels in the future. Still, The Amazing Spider-Man looks like it will earn a nice chunk of change in its own right. Audiences enjoyed the film and issued it an “A-” CinemaScore grade, which should lead to strong word-of-mouth in the coming weeks — at least until The Dark Knight Rises arrives July 20.

    Yeah I was feelin it, way better than the first incarnation with Tobey MacGuire. Andrew Garfield was way better as Spiderman and the dude who played The Lizard / Dr. Curt Connors was real good.

    Can't wait to see who they use for the next one.
