Monday Movie Memo: Here's Why The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Is The Best Spidey Movie Yet

Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 finally opened in American theaters after getting off to a hot start overseas. The continuation of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone’s saga banked an estimated $92 million over the weekend, giving Spider-Man fans the chance to meet Electro (Jamie Foxx), find out what happens to Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), and continue the journey with star-crossed lovers Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy.

There's a very specific reason why I now consider Webb’s film, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, to be the best Spidey movie we've seen to date. Part of it is The best. Part of it’s the action. Part of, it is the chemistry of the leads. But there’s a major sequence I NEEDED to see on screen, and Webb delivered. To reveal why here would be to spoil. But if you have seen The Amazing Spider-Man 2, watch the above video of the Monday Movie Memo and join the conversation.
