Sam Raimi Won’t Watch ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’

Sam Raimi Won’t Watch ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’

But one person who won’t be watching the Spidey reboots is Raimi himself, but not for the reasons you might think.


There are no grudges or hard feelings about the studio or Webb taking another spin on the franchise, rather it’s just that Raimi isn’t quite ready to watch it. “I’m a big Marc Webb fan and a giant fan of Emma Stone. And of Andrew Garfield...And I love the producers of that movie because they are dear friends, and the writer. But, I haven’t had the guts to go see the movie yet. Because I don’t want to go to my girlfriend’s wedding,”

Much more gracious and professional than I would be. I was not planning on seeing The Amazing Spider-Man, but then I started MovieByte and felt I needed to at least see it, so I did. And while I think Emma Stone is a brilliant actress, and it looks like it is possible that Andrew Garfield has talent, this new Spider-Man film sure didn’t show it. It was truly, and awful, awful movie. Any of the three of Raimi’s Spider-Man films are far, far better than this new travesty of a Spider-Man film without question.

But, Raimi is a gentleman, and who knows what he really thinks.
