I'd be just as unsurprised if the movie turned out to be good as I would be if it turned out to be a total stinkbomb.  But either way, I'm just not getting the overpowering urge to actually see it.

I'm expecting it to be a pretty decent movie... but I also have no real urge to see it... At least not until it can be had for $1 at Redbox. At some point, these rapid fire reboots run into diminishing returns in regards to my interest level.

If they're going to reboot the goddamn franchise(I realize it's way too late for an opinion like this), especially less than 5 years since the last Spider-man film, they better have a good reason. Unless you're going to deliver something on par with Batman begins... don't even friggin' bother. That's just my opinion though.

Sony does have a good reason: So the film rights for the character don't revert back to Marvel.

If that's the impression I get from watching the movie I am going to walk right the fuck out and demand my fucking money back.

I have a feeling we'd be talking about Spider-Man 4 if Raimi and MacGuire hadn't walked away from it. Reboot was about the only way more Spider-Man was going to happen.

I think going into it expecting something on the level of Nolan's Batman movies is setting yourself up for a fall, leave your expectations at the door says I.

It's not just the money for one particular film. Once the rights to Spider-Man revert back to Marvel (which is now owned by Disney), they will NEVER be up for option again.

What happened was, Raimi was originally gonna do it (I, for one, was eager to see him make up for Spider-Man 3), but was committed to make another film first. That would have put it being released too late to prevent reversion of the rights, so Sony said, "F.U., hippie," and started looking for talent to make a re-boot. I've got to give Sony some credit; at least they didn't go for a no-name hack to do some rush-job, and count on the name of the character to pull in an audience (*cough*GreenLantern*cough*)

Theatres don't work that way.  You realize the theatre personnel's job isn't to make the movie, right?  If they didn't screw up, why should they owe you money?

To be fair, Martin Campbell isn't exactly a no-name hack, as Goldeneye, The Mask of Zorro and Casino Royale can attest.

Perhaps one of us mis-communicated, if it was me, i am sorry, but I'm pretty damn sure you know that's not what I meant.

It would seem they're determined to release this entire movie bit by bit before it's released.

At this point, I'm not even sure I wanna see this as a rental. This guy kinda annoys me. I'll probably see it for reasons that involve blonde Emma Stone.
