  1. I still think Garfield was perfect as spiderman. I personally really like the amazing spiderman movies. I was still in the theatre after watching the second when I started lookin for details on the third… My personal opinion is that they should have continued the amazing spider man movies and just went in a different direction when they teamed up with marvel. All the actors were perfect for their respective roles… Just my 2 cents tho.
