Not my Spider-Man

The two most recent Spider-Man movies are the weakest films in the Marvel universe, at least the ones I've seen. The actors are okay, but the scripts are rubbish. In the last one, the world hangs in the balance. That's not Spider-Man! He should be occupied with small crooks in New York and occasionally Dr Octopus. And everything moves so fast! Will modern audiences fall asleep if a conversation lasts more than half a minute. And all the high tech stuff is annoying. In the Ditko and Romita days Peter Parker would have to repair his suit with needle and thread. The Raimi movies could be corny, but I'll take that any day rather than this crap.
