The Amazing Spider-Man opens up today, and as excited as I am to see it, I still really loved what director Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire did with the Marvel character in the first two movies. Video editor keesvdijkhuizen created an awesome video retrospective that takes us on a six-minute journey through Raimi's Spider-Man universe. Here's a note from from the the videos creator,
The superhero genre wouldn't be what it is today were it not for Sam Raimi's original Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3. The trilogy brought the hero to the screen like we'd never seen before and is one of the landmarks in American film. With the release of Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man, it's time to celebrate one of the most amazing trilogies ever to hit the screen.
He does make a great point, Raimi did take superhero and comic book movies to a new level of awesomness. This video does a great job of reminding us how awesome these films are. Enjoy!
