My Inconvenient Life: I Saw "Amazing Spider-Man" Again And This Time I Felt Bad For Marc Webb

readitordont:

Many props to BadAssDigest for their excellent post on “the untold story” of Amazing getting cut from the film.

Go read that first.

Good?

Pretty crazy theories huh? I mean, pretty crazy theories that I completely believe because I think Sony/Columbia is sticking it to Marc Webb in a way that…

I saw it on Tuesday, and yeah—read the Badass Digest post, too, that’s where the cut scenes themselves are described. Every time the movie seemed to be getting near something interesting about the Parkers or Dr. Connors himself, that element would disappear or wander off and you’d be left with Peter fighting the Lizard at the high school or whatever. I liked it, but the whole movie just felt really off to me, and I suspect I would have really liked Webb’s original cut.
