I saw this film tonight.

It was quite good. Good action, well shot, fun. But I felt a bit bored, because the whole thing just seemed un-necessary. We had Spider-Man 10 years ago and it was a pretty decent movie, if I remember right. They look pretty similar, there’s no real, huge change. It’s not like the difference between Batman and Robin and Batman Begins. It’s probably more like if I grew a third ear. Sure it might be cool, but it’s totally un-necessary and frankly a little embarrassing that it happened.

But what do I know? Perhaps they’ll re-boot Iron Man and I’ll long for the good ol’ days when they waited 10 years before a movie got re-done.
