People have been uploading what look an awful lot like unfinished scenes from "The Amazing Spider-Man" unlocked from a Kelloggs promotion to YouTube, and they look... not very good. Not very good at all. But, again, they also look unfinished, so maybe the benefit of the doubt is in order. The Escapist points me to a set that has all three together:
Yeah... that's pretty painful.
I'm willing to consider, until proven otherwise, that the "messin' with a mugger' scene is presented extremely out-of-context; i.e. that maybe this movie's version of "I was a self-centered wrestler first" is "I started out as a massive douchebag." Because otherwise... wow, that is show-stoppingly horrible stuff as presented here. Set aside the fact that stand-up-comedy-Spidey (still) doesn't seem to work in live action - I stand by my original appraisal of "Dane Cook as a Power Ranger" - and whole thing still feels... "off."
It's a weird distinction, I realize, but in the comics/cartoons/whatever Spidey verbally dressing-down the bad guys generally comes off as "playful;" partially because his sense of humor is generally so corny (THIS is the thing Sam Raimi "got" that few others ever do - even when he's Spider-Man, Peter Park is still a total dork.) but also because you're reading it to yourself and can make Spidey sound agreeable to you. Everything about this clip feels exactly the opposite of playful and/or agreeable. Spidey comes off like a bully here - from the awful "stop hittin' yerself"-style douchebag humor to the "come at me bro!" stance and posture. Couple that with the ugly visual scheme (though, again, this is probably an unfinished scene) the still-not-working black eyes and the fucking MUZZLE FLARE on the webshooters (duuuuuuuuuuuude! hardcore!!!) and this continues to look every bit the awful grimdarkedgygritty bullshit version I was soooo relieved we avoided the first time around. BUT... it could be out of context, so who knows?
That bit in the bathroom, on the other hand... you've got decades worth of superhero movies to steal from, and you choose to steal from "X-Men Origins: Wolverine!?"
