5 Things You Can Do To Prepare For The Amazing Spider-man This Weekend

Brad of The Daily Rotation wrote, "It was May 2002, the first summer blockbuster season after the tragic events of 9/11. If the world ever needed a hero, especially one so entwined with that fateful New York City, it was now. After years in b-movie splatter, Sam Raimi delivered with the first big budget Spider-man movie. After a few sequels and over $2 billion in box office receipts, the franchise went dead for nearly 5 years. Now, Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) brings his own unique vision to the Spiderman mythos on July 3rd.

Here’s what you do to get ready."

From what I've read, the best thing to do in preperation for the movie is to lower your expectations...

Hah! True story. Although, this isn't a bad policy with any movie that has an established universe outside of film. I don't see it as a negative thing at all. Especially with comic book franchises. They have so many factions of fans that you'll never please them all. I can't wait for it personally.

I wouldn't say lower, but alter. People need to expect a DIFFERENT Spidey film that goes in its own direction, while still staying true to the roots in some areas. Having had time to really think it over after seeing it I can say that it ranks just as good, if not slightly better than Raimi's best attempts.

All Spiderman fans should go see this if they thought Raimi's Spiderman was too cheeky and silly. If you thought Raimi's version was the pinnacle of superhero movies, this might not do it for you. It draws heavily from the "Ultimate Spiderman" comic, so if you enjoyed that run, you'll enjoy the movie. I'll definitely go see a sequel.
