James Franco bites his tongue for no one. The actor recently gave an impromtu review of Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man. Franco himself starred as Harry Osborn in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, which ran from 2002-2007. In a recent interview, he was asked his opinion on the reboot as well as successor Dane DeHaan

Franco revealed that he's seen DeHaan's work in both Chronicle and Lawless. He has nothing but positive things to say about him, it's the story he's not fond of. Franco felt the film was more "meh" than amazing. "I mean ... they could have strayed a little bit more from the original," he explained. "It was like, 'Why?' I guess they made a lot of money. Congrats."

Isn't that the reaction most people had when they announced the film? Another origin story? The movie didn't blow him away, but Franco's not bitter. He continued, "Good for them. Sam and I moved on. We made Oz [The Great and Powerful]."

The actor's latest Raimi collaboration Oz: The Great and Powerful hits theaters March 8.
