    Chronicle was really, really good. The Amazing Spider-Man... wasn't.

    I'm conflicted.

    The Amazing Spiderman was a hell of a lot better than Raimi's trilogy...and I'm a huge Raimi fan.

    The Amazing Spiderman wasn't amazing?

    Shame on you for a missed joke.

    Having Harry in the franchise won't be so bad.
    I think they're planning on making the goblin a villain in the third movie.

    Hitting the actual topic first, I honestly don't know who Dane DeHaan is, but people seem to like him and support the choice. Looking at him, he looks like he'll make at least a physically accurate Harry. Looking at the cast list, Mary Jane is also being introduced in this movie, which should be interesting. If things go the way I think they will, the spotlight won't be on her long before this series if movies is up. Gwen Stacey seems to be the gal for this, trilogy I'd guess, though I'm not sure about the number of movies.

    Anyways, Jamie Foxx should do well. He's already shown in movies such as Law Abiding Citizen (which is excellent as long as you don't let the critics form your opinion [audience reception is quite good]) that he can do a serious role well, and if you saw Horrible Bosses, you saw he can also be comedic if they decide to add any of that cheesy comic, super villain flair. He's not a horrible actor, yet you act like you could think of a million better people to stick in the role.

    I personally found The Amazing Spider-Man to be a good movie. It beat the previous trilogy (though I still give credit to the second movie for easily being the best of the three), and was closer to the comics (yay web shooters!). The new Peter is just the right kind of awkward, and they did a good job not making him a straight up pretty boy in the movie. Emma Stone is fun to look at and fills her role well, and I thought the film as a whole was well done. I'm certainly looking forward to the next movie.

    Too many loose ends and plot holes in the first Amazing Spider-Man for me to enjoy it. I know Sony did an extreme amount of cutting and editing to make the movie a little more basic. If only it really did tell the untold story that they seemed to advertise everywhere.

    About the chronicle guy I think he played the dark, angry and confused character well which is probably why he was chosen to play Harry in the sequel.

    Also I think the fact that Harry is going to be Spider-Man 2 pretty much confirms that his father, Norman, will be in the movie as well.
