Spidey 3


I finally watched Spiderman 3 yesterday with former YODC contributor Thongchai Jaidee and I cried...why?..cuz that movie was just plain awful..seriously it sucked BALLS...why you ask?..well here are a few reasons:



  • they tried cramming too much backstory into the first 30 minutes of the film
  • Sandman's "origin" was just stupid..you'd think the military would secure they're top secret goverment experiment with more than just a chainlink fence that any joe schmoe could simply hop over AND to have Sandman turn out to be Uncle Ben's real killer was just a simple bullshit way to work him into the story
  • too much singing and dancing

  • not enough "action"

  • somewhat a spoiler......at the end of the movie, Sandman apologies to Spidey for "accidently" killing Uncle Ben and what does the webslinger do?...lets the Sandman blow away in the wind like..uh...sand...

  • movie was too freakin LONG and not in a good you don't even notice way


now I tend to enjoy bad movies(like the Star Wars prequels, they're pretty awful but I've watched all them more times than I'd like to admit and uh..DC Cab...can't beat having Mr. T and the Barbarian Brothers in the same movie) but this movie was just plain bad...I think I threw up my hands and yelled "give me a fauckin break..." several times during this movie(especially when Sandman happily blows away in the wind)...you know..I think I'd rather watch Ang Lee's Hulk again than this..

@craig: you really liked this movie?..maybe I went in with my expectations too high(Spidey 2 was a pretty badass movie) and thats why I didn't like it

Sorry u'know me (bit unstable (I'll try and hold it up for you guys next time))


Yeah I dug it... it's like I was willing to make allowances for the unusually conveniant plot devices, if I felt like the film was going to pay back in other ways... and I felt like it did, with the action, comedy and special effects... if anything I felt like Venom could have been a bit bigger...

(I thought (Ang Lee's) Hulk was a decent film too :) )
