"The Amazing Spider-Man" is the fifteenth episode of the second season of film review web series Half in the Bag, and 35th episode in the series overall. The episode aired July 8, 2012 on Blip.[1]

In this episode, Mike and Jay are saved from certain death by Richard Edlund, Jr. and hide out in his comic book store.[1]

PlotEdit

While on his lunch break, Richard Edlund, Jr., a comic book shop proprietor and an avid Betamax cammer, saves two vagrants named Mike and Jay from being murdered in broad daylight.

A Samaritan at heart, Rich shelters the two in the backroom of his store, offers refreshments, and screens his personal bootleg of The Amazing Spider-Man.

However, when he discovers the two are VCR repairmen, he makes a fateful phone call that sets into motion a horrific series of events.

Summary and ReviewEdit

The Amazing Spider-ManEdit

The Amazing Spider-Man is the new reboot, reimagining, remake thing about Spider-Man, most recently directed by Sam Raimi. This version, however, is directed by some guy named Marc Webb. [...] The Amazing Spider-Man tells the story we've seen already except this time with a lizard instead of a man in a plastic Halloween mask. The plot was clearly stolen from the 1971 film Zaat, as the lizard wants to turn humans into his own kind for either superiority reasons or lack-of-an-arm complex or something. Spider-Man must stop him, I guess.
—Jay Bauman
