2.0 out of 5 stars Unneccessary reboot, 22 Oct 2012
This Spider-man is pretty much the same movie you watched a few years back, only with Tobey Maguire in the lead role back then.

VERY disappointed!

However, there's plenty of thrills, chills and action in this show, though on a subtler scale than with previous versions of Indiana Jones. This Indy engages in adventures with an emphasis on and appreciation of history, culture and the arts. It's clear that these episodes are meant to be educational, but this is not a bad thing, on the contrary. Following Indy as he travels the world… Read more
