I Just Saw Spider Man 3, And I Clapped At The End.

I just got back home from seeing Spider Man 3 with a couple of friends of mine. Not the best out of the 3 but this one definitely takes second place. A bit long for an action type of movie but its time well worth. In my opinion the best out of the 3 is the first one, then the third one, and finally the second one. I am not a movie critic but I can say that this movie is worth the money. Let’s just see whether the director of the movie chooses either The Hobbit, or Spider Man 4. Frankly, I enjoy both movie series.

It's not just the destination, it's the journey.

Are you kidding me? The only reason I moderately enjoyed this movie was because of the comic relief to distract me from the lack of plot and drawn-out storyline, and the blatantly obvious cheesiness of the emotions. And just when I thought things couldn't get any "worse" in terms of unrequired content, the director decides to display an American flag flapping in the wind, filling the entire movie screen, and have a slow-motion clip of Spiderman heroically running in front of it.

*groan*

DISCLAIMER: I am in no way, shape, or form, anti-American. I just felt this was over-the-top, cheezy American patriotism that served no purpose and gave no added value to the movie within the context.

Quoting Edelag (Thread starter):
Let’s just see whether the director of the movie chooses [...] Spider Man 4.

I'm going to put my money on NOT making Spiderman 4. All the loose ends were tied up at the end of this movie!

1.) We found out what *really* happened when Ben Parker got murdered.
2.) Peter reconciles with the killer.
3.) Peter becomes friends with Harry again! Oh wait...he's dead now.  sarcastic 
4.) Wow, Mary Jane is NEVER going to want to get back with Peter, now that he's become an egotistical prick! Oh...they're united in Harry's death? They LOVE eachother again? But did MJ even find out *why* Peter was being a pain in the ass? Oh well, who cares?  sarcastic 

I really didn't like how Venom was only in the movie for about 30 minutes, and how they didn't even focus/develop one villain the entire movie. Sure, Sandman was Ben's killer, but all I saw him as was a genetically modified jailbird...none of the villains really held any real *hate* for Peter/Spidey.

Meh. I just hope they don't go and *completely* ruin the Spiderman series by making a fourth installment.



Shut up and calculate.

Didn't like it, didn't like it, didn't like it.

Ok, there were moments when I was like, "WOW that is cool." But then many were the moments when I said to myself, "oh how corny can it get?" (like that flag thing IAMCANADIAN mentioned, or the cheezy screams of the delight from the people of NY...) I actually was telling my friend during that movie, I think it is becuase I am getting older.

It could have ended, when Harry died, or even when Spidey gave the 'heartfelt' speech, at which point people started clapping (whats' with the clapping anyhow). But it still dragged on even more. UUURGGH.

I was really looking forward to it but i was dissappointed.

P.S. Just love the action between the 'goodies' and the baddies'

I'll have to agree with you. It's those kinds of things in which you ask yourself whether the director thought about who was going to watch his fim. The whole world or only in the US? I don't disrespect the US at all but just seems that it goes a bit over the top.

I know...but people don't know that the movie is good or bad before watching it (sometimes...). It's the expectation they create that sets the box office record.

If the third installment of The Lord Of The Rings came out, and disappointed most people who saw it, don't you think it would have as many opening day/weekend sales as it had? It's the duration of high ticket sales that indicates how sucessful a movie really is.

Yeah That is all true. But Spiderman, just because of its history will continue to have high sales. The is is the 3rd installment, the first 2 were very successful, I don't expect a difference in this one. I am sure many people heard the reports before going to see it. A few of my friends saw it on midnight thursday, and they didn't like it, but guess I still went to see because it was Spiderman. And I am sure many people will thinking like that.

It'll be interesting to see how word of mouth affects next weekends sales, though. I personally will be waiting until it comes out on DVD, as I have heard less than spectacular reviews from friends.

I thought it was unnecessarily long and had some pretty lame dramatic scenes like when Peter breaks down and starts sobbing on that bridge with MJ. I always thought Tobey Maguire was a better actor than that.

It definitely wasn't the best out of the three.

One part which really ticked me off about the film was how cheesy the dialogue was at times. I've never heard a whole cinema sigh in unison before until the dialogue between Peter and the Sandman at the end and Peter says, as cheesy and as clichéd as anything I'd ever heard before.......

"I FORGIVE YOU!"

I swear to God, the whole cinema just let out a united groan!! The minute the film came to a finish, there was a scurry to the exits which can never be a good sign! But, hey, the makers had our €9 already in the bag so what did they care!

It was allright, but I would've thought it to be better.

Why the hell did an alien virus turn Peter Parker into an emo?

In fact, during one scene where Mary-Jane asks "Who are you?" - someone did actually exclaim "A ******* emo" - much to the amusement of everyone in the theatre. During their break up scene in central park, people were actually laughing.

This was a dog's breakfast of a movie.

It will probably affect it to minimun levels as people just need to go and see it for themselves. So as bad as the movie is people will still go to see it. Then again, kids don't mind whether it's a good or a bad movie. At the end parents will still have to go and see their kids heroe  Wink

I agree that with a movie this big any bad word of mouth isn't going to hurt it that much.
