I'm with Tim. Spider-Man has always been my favorite so I was bummed when Garfield took him from being a nerd to a jerk. Parker was supposed to be "punchable" because he was a timid science nerd, not a smarmy asshole. That's why becoming Spider-Man was such a release for him. I do think Garfield was great as Spider-Man but he was basically the same guy with the mask on and off.

And I am one of the folks who enjoyed the Webb movies even though the stories weren't great.

Which raises another good point. Old school vs. Ultimate version of character.

I can see the problem with Garfield not being an uber nerd as Parker.

I never picked up on smarmy asshole from Garfield. I identified with him as Parker. Shit. I AM THE SMARMY ASSHOLE.

Garfield is a shit actor, Maguire only understood one aspect of the role. Still, he did the best that he could given that Raimi shot them as Superman movies.

This is a good point. I think he got the hang of it by the third movie but, yeah, that one isn't so good.

I've thought about these films way too much. So, I tend to stay out of these conversations due to now wanting to piss out any campfires.

That being said, Spidey has always sucked to a degree on film.

Garfield's not smarmy, he's overcompensating. Smarmy is a whole other world onto itself. Walter Peck is smarmy, Andrew Garfield is fucking someone out of his league.

Maybe that's what it was re: Garfield - that he might've tried a bit too hard. Also, I rather liked that Raimi shot his films like Superman; they were comic booky and a bit camp, but that was precisely what made them work for me. They didn't take themselves too seriously.

Rob, excellent point re: Classic vs. Ultimate. I like 'em both, I even dig on seeing a Miles Morales Spidey flick or TV show (Netflix?), but if push comes to shove, I'm an old school comic fan. I grew up with Classic Spidey/Parker, so I'm biased towards that.
