It seems that so many people have been asking Sam Raimi if he's seen Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man that he finally buckled down and watched it! He previously shared his thoughts on why he hadn't seen it yet, but now that he has... this is what he thought of the movie,
It was very hard for me to see the new Spider-Man movie, I felt so attached to it, I couldn’t see Spider-Man with another director; it’s like my love, and I didn’t want to walk in on my love with someone else. It was just like that. Then I got over myself last week and said, ‘just see the damn thing’. And I did, and I loved it. I actually felt free. I thought, ‘why am I carrying around this baggage?’ Of course the next Spider-Man story should be told, and [Marc Webb] did a wonderful job telling that. I loved the movie, and I’m looking forward like a fan to the next installment. I love the comic book, and now I don’t feel bound, and I’m really glad somebody’s remaking it again.
It's cool to see that he liked it. I really enjoyed it myself, and I'm excited for the sequel that's currently being made. I also loved Raimi's Oz The Great and Powerful, and I'm excited to see what he ends up doing next!
