  1. Reasons why you won’t like Spider-Man: There are two new villains, and “great power/responsibility” is replaced with “rise above.”
  2. Another reason: The plot structure mimics a Greek tragedy, complete with a chorus narrating the plot.
  3. Reasons you will like Spider-Man: You will never see production values like this ever again.
  4. Another reason: There are 30 foot high LCD screens that fly around the set and actors who climb around the theater.
  5. Summary: Don’t see Spider-Man if you are a whiney fanboy. Everyone else should see it.
