[Movies] Sam Raimi Has Finally Watched The Amazing Spider-Man Posted by Larry Csonka on 03.08.2013
What did he think?
- Last month, Sam Raimi had admitted that he had not watched The Amazing Spider-Man. He noted that, "I haven't had the guts to go see the movie yet, because I don't want to go to my girlfriend's wedding. I just can't bring myself to do it--I don't have the guts."
Well, he has changed his tune and finally watched the film. But did he like it? Here is what he had to say…
"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."
