    I thought this one featured the lizard guy.  Didn't the last one have green goblin or the sandman or somesuch?

    Or is it that they keep wanting to cram in his origins as well, under the assumption kids haven't read the older comics?

    I never actually cared for many of the so called 'classics' of film myself, preferring the old clint eastwood or terrance hill westerns, or a number of the Cary Grant flicks.  Arsenic and Old Lace is a complete hoot.

      Saw the newest Spiderman because my little brother wanted to go. It is essentially the same movie as the first one out of the last series.

      As noted upthread, this remake was primarily about holding on to the rights for the character. Money was the motivation, and little else.
