I love Andrew Garfield. I love Emma Stone. I love Martin Sheen. I love Rhys Ifans. I love Sally Field. And I have come to love Denis Leary. I also love C Thomas Howell and Campbell Scott and Embeth Davidtz, who have smaller roles in this one - yet I was still so happy to see them. The cast of Spiderman is a perfect mix of players for me. I really enjoyed this movie. The story is typical spiderman fare. I'm not familiar at all with the comic book or the 'real' spiderman story - is Gwen Stacy part of that story? I thought Mary Jane was his counterpart. Not that it matters. Andrew Garfield is funny, empathetic, angry - perfectly simmering and he has great chemistry with real life love Emma Stone. There is something so soothing in Martin Sheens voice - I find him to be a really great choice for Uncle Ben. The point is - I really love this cast. This cast made me love Spiderman. Great storytelling, great acting. First time I actually felt this story. Though the story was not strikingly different than the retells before it - it had a different villian and I just really, really enjoyed it more. More emotional - I like it! This cast plus the amazing CGI effects in this movie - wowza- made this an unexpectedly enjoyable and enticing movie experience.
