I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Amazing Spider-man: A Good Reboot?

I know that most people are just tired of reboots, but I think there is reason to believe that the forthcoming The Amazing Spider-man film can be good. The casting is fantastic. The look and feel, as displayed in the first and second trailer is spot on, and they have the courage to delve both into the tragic story of the Stacy family and the secret story behind Peter Parker's parents.

Some reboots are made solely for money. I have a feeling that this is one of the few that also employs a decent amount of art and soul.
