Spider-Pros and Spider-Cons

Australia got a new Amazing Spider-Man trailer this weekend, and I feel I'm safe in saying it's the best Amazing Spider-Man trailer yet. It's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but it does seem exciting enough for the movie that I momentarily forgot it's an incredibly needless reboot. So let's break it down:

• Solid action
• Excellent webslinging (except for that one shot)
• Dr. Connors does not seem quite as transparently evil
• The "I'm going to throw you out the window now" scene

• That one horrible webslinging shot
• The skateboarding (really? Really?!)
• All the parent shit
• That football bullshit at the end

So that all evens out, I guess. Hmm. Staying positive today might be a little harder than I thought.
