I hear a lot of hate directed towards the other films, which conspicuously started around the time the new one started getting made... curious. Not really a Marvel fan, so I can't claim to understand the reasoning, but it usually came down to 'Parker is a pussy', and 'He has webs?!?!'. Both of which are just fucking stupid -.- Parker in the video games, and what comics I've seen, is just a walking one liner. Every bit of dialogue was some kind of joke, and none of it was funny. And the lack of web shooters was a bad thing? Really? The comics themselves have gotten rid of it plenty of times for less retarded options, like, oh, I dunno... a radioactive half human half spider hybrid being able to produce webs.
