I watched the Spider-Man series with Toby Maguire and now I'm watching The Amazing Spider-Man.
I don't really know enough to know which one is most "authentic" but as I'm watching this newer version of Spider-Man somehow I get the feeling that it's less true to the original story. Am I correct?
In the Toby Maguire Spider-Man, to the best of my memory, Uncle Ben was murdered by a carjacker exiting Peter's boxing match as Ben tried to talk him out of his crime. In The Amazing Spider-Man a thief grabs money from a cash register then stumbles in front of Ben, who then tries to steal the thief's gun, and Ben is shot in the ensuing struggle.
