I think alot of people had impossible expectations for this movie. It's the same director, same actors, special effects can only be better. How could it possibly be so horrible? I'll be seeing it sometime this week and the only way I can think so many people hated it so much was they were just expecting WAY too much going in.
If I walk into the theater as a fan of the Spider-Man movies and comic as a whole, how disappointed could I possibly be? I mean this is Spider-Man...
Maybe I'll be singing a different tune afterwards but I have no idea why all the hate.
Shattered opening weekend records too, 148 million in 3 days is absolutely nuts. Good or not, everyone and his brother went.
I saw it tonight. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Different from the other two definitely, but I was still entertained from start to finish. I think some of it could've been cut, but overall I like it just as I did the first two.
And yeah, that Silver Surfer trailer looks sooooooo badass.
the problem is there is no more self-discovery for peter, so they have to focus on the other stuff. But its not like the franchise is pulling the MJ Parker relationship out of its butt either.
As far as Peter being goofy with the symbiote, I thought it was cheesy, but then Peter is cheesy. I think it just underscores his essentially goodness, because that's as "bad" as he got. And in fact, it helped him be assertive. On the other hand, Brock was so fundamentally bad that it corrupted him instantly.
It wasn't the best, but then again, the first time a lightsaber lit up, I was like "holy S%$&" then by episode one, some of the magic was lost. I don't think it's necessarily the movie, but that it's not fresh anymore.
Superhero franchises have a fundamental problem in that while the movies should be getting better, then villains are getting worse, because they tend to use them in order of importance. I'm not a big sandman fan as it is. IT's like Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy or something.
