    What I like about TASM is that this reboot actually put in Peter’s parents Richard and Mary where in other incantations, the parents are barely mentioned

    I've noticed that every Spider-Man movie (or tv show), the director (or writer) always seems to care considering that the characters that don't want to have the movie) aren't created by Stan Lee, but Sony always forces them into the movies, I love Vemon, I love Eddie Brock, but here's something, they aren't made by Stan, I feel stupid for not knowing that to be honest

    Hey I love your stuff HiTop. And honestly most of the time, I actually agree right along with you. You're a breath of fresh air in terms of high quality content and good critique analysis' in a sea of mediocrity. Your enthusiasm and passion are infectious.
    Please don't stop. Your content is addictive and I love it. We all do.

    Hi, this is the same “ 7:18 PM“ person. I just wanted to say “ Empathetic“, not “ Sympathetic“ and The first Sam Raimi film was from 2002 and not 2001. That was an accident. My bad. Again, have a good evening and… What the hell. Do you feel what I’m about to say is from the video you did about Batman, who I am a HUGE fan of as well. “I am vengeance. I am the night. I am Batman.”

    This message is being made on November 20, 2019 (7:18 PM). I just wanted to say that what you said about Peter(people) doing some bad things in life and then finally doing some good? Not only is that something I TRULY understand, but it is something I am trying to do. To have. To EARN. I have done some... some bad things in my life. Hurt people I care about over and over and over. And it is something I always regret. It’s because of this that my goal, my ONE GOAL, is to help people. To save people. So that... I can change. I can go from the “bully” to the “Hero”. So that I can EARN the forgiveness. So that I can have a chance. A chance to do better. To “fix his(my) broken piece”. It’s hearing words like this, kind, understanding, sympathetic words that understands being human & being flawed, that helps give me the will, the STRENGTH to do better, to BE better. Like the Raimi Spider-Man series did for you (yes I both saw and enjoyed those videos. To be honest, I have NO idea who the one person throughout your various videos is who insults you. One example is “Doc Ock is a bitch, bitch.”) As a final farewell (in this message, not these videos. I going to continue watching), I say, from Spider-Man 1 (2001), “ whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words. “With great power comes great responsibility. This is my gift. My curse.” Have a good new evening and… Hopefully sleep better than I have for the past couple nights :-).

    Unpopular Opinion. The Amazing Spiderman 1 & 2 are actually really good, and people hated on them to hard. Once you get past some issues, and, if, IF you just watch the movie, just try to enjoy it, then you will realize that there not bad. There was some mess ups, however, both were very, very good.

    I think listening to you pointed out to me that the selfishness of Peter Parker at first is realistic. Imagine that you were bullied all your life.. then finally had the chance to act back. I know I would, being bullied at a younger age, I would have made lots of people pay for it. But that's not important. Back to Spider-Man, Garfield's PP is more realistic in this movie because of how he first acts (suit was still shit tho tbh)

    Its funny that TASM spiderman goes against the usual spiderman themes and everyone hates it yet the MCU spiderman also did that yet everyone loves it?

  • Imagineit Ryan Productions

    This is why we're starting to see more and more independent creators, because of 2 things, 1. Hollywood doesn't want to take risks with original ideas anymore, and 2. even if you get your idea sold to a studio, they will literally steal it from your creative hands and make what THEY think it should be, not what YOU wanted it to be.
