3. Better Aunt May & Uncle Ben
A toss-up, since both sets of veterans perform admirably as the moral compasses of the respective films. The slight edge goes to Martin Sheen and Sally Field in the new adaptation, though, simply because they make the audience more invested in their characters and their well-being. That may be the effect of the plot structure and directorial choices, but when Uncle Ben gets gunned down in "The Amazing Spider-Man," it's a bigger lump-in-your-throat moment than when the same sequence occurred in the original. Plus, it's Sally Field! Want to convince your mom to see "Spider-Man" with the rest of the family? Tell her Sally Field is in it, and she'll be there. Winner: "The Amazing Spider-Man"
