Spider-Man is Here: Obey

Last week, in anticipation of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” I rewatched the second installment of Sam Raimi's “Spider-Man” trilogy (review up soon), and during the opening credits, as they panned in and out of actors' names, this flashed on the screen as a portion of lead actor Tobey Maguire's name:

Spider-Man: Obey

Good thing I'm not a conspiracy theorist.

Reviews of “Amazing 2” are less than amazing—worst ever for the two franchises. Worse than “Spider-Man 3”? I'll believe that when I see it. Which I believe will be tonight.

Not worse than Spider-Man 3. Not by a long shot. Not great, either, though.

There are some things in it I think are great, but on the whole it's a bit messy and contrived. And the music score sucks. At least they got the Spidey suit right this time, though.
