Spiderman 3

What an utter cluster-fuck of a movie, which didn't even have an at least they had Kirsten Dunst in a wet clingy dress moment.

First the goblin is bad. Then he's good. Then he's bad again. Then he's good again.

The sandman is bad. Then he's good (though this part was shown before the prior bad part). Then he's bad again. And then he's good again.

Tobey Maguire can't pull off anything remotely serious here, or romantic, or parodying, or pretty much anything.

Topher Grace wasn't bad. Awful part, but he managed to at least seem to have fun playing it.

How many cliche-ridden maudlin speeches with no real point other that to seem deep do we really need?

Don't get me wrong. The core of the Amazing Spiderman comic book was that Peter Parker was a real guy wrestling with trying to be a super-hero at the same time as well as not being particularly successful at his real life stuff either. I think Sam Raimi's intent was to do that. He just pulled it off rather poorly.

Thomas Haden-Church really did look like the Sandman character as I remember him. Of course, it's been a billiondy years since I looked through my old comics, so I could be recalling incorrectly.

Awful. Awful. Awful.

Man, it was awesome! I was so amused! First off, it's all about the experience. Since the projectionists loaded the trailers backwards and upside down, with reversed audio, the heckling began early and got the crowd loosened up. Then, some beautifully timed jests from the audience fuckin' cracked us all up.

Mary-Jane kisses Harry. "Whore."
Spidey goes Emo, pulls his hair down. "Flip hair up, good! Down, evil! Up, good!"
Butler says 'I loved your father.' "Whoa!"
'As I love you.' Silence.

And I'll repeat... Emo Spiderman! So fuckin' awesome! He even had black hair dye, a gay haircut, and eyeliner! Eyeliner! The symbiote bonded with his upper eyelid! The whole time my friends and I were whining that goths and emo kids never get the girl. So... Good...
Sometimes I love US audiences.
