I realize this was what appears to be a senseless act of pain you had to suffer through, but I just felt you should know. You took that bullet for me, man! I owe you mah LIFEZ!
As per this review, my husband and I will not bother seeing it anytime soon.
And that emo is exactly why I hate Spiderman in general.
I was thinking they tried to make him more like Jim Carey in the Mask, almost laughable really, and not very serious. Other than some of the effects in the movie I thought it wasn't anything great just ok. Luckily I had a free pass to see it so I didn't have to pay out any money.
Amen, brother. Add that to the multitude of small, loud children (in a 10:30 PM movie, mind), and the chick in front of me continually texting (I do belive I dropped the c-word at one point, and had to be stopped from kicking her in the head), I wish I'd saved the 10 bucks.
Though the boy and I did get a great laugh out of hipster-Parker, and it was decided that Brock was mearly Bizzaro World Parker.
"I think Wolverine teared up during Old Yeller, but that's to be expected."
Andmy husband agrees with your summation. Emo Spidey and all.
... It took longer for them to kill THIS one than it did to kill the Batman franchise in hollywood. Thanks for the heads up, though.
300 ruled. It makes me wonder how it got produced in Hollywood.
Easy...it was cheap to make. Nobody in Hollywood expected it to be a $200mil blockbuster.
Cheap to Make? It cost over $350 Million to make.
How is that Cheap?
We were talking about 300, not Spiderman. 300 was only $60mil, which is bargain price for hollywood these days.
oh hehe, silly me.
I figured it(300) would be more than that, due to all the special effects etc etc.
Surprisingly, blue screen movies are extremely cheap to make. Sky Captain was only like 70 million, and that was primarily casting budget. 300 was relatively starless, excepting perhaps Gerard Butler or David Wynam (sp). And it's made triple its money, not a bad little return.
Wow... My friends here have had nothing but good things to say about this movie. I haven't seen it yet, but I plan to. It will be very interesting to try to see what caused you to see this much wrong with this movie.
Admittedly, I plan on going into it prewarned now. Thanks at least.
For the record, that wasnt supposed to be, or was implied that that was the hobgoblin.
Just wanted to get that off my chest.
Yes, Harry's super id was unnamed in the movie. It was just technically Harry on a Flying Skateboard. Ok, Harry acting badly on a flying skateboard. And his death scene was the funniest part of the movie. For all the wrong reasons.
Well, I guess for non-spidey fans, they don't know he is supposed to be the second Green Goblin.
Granted, the skate-board was pretty cool, it didn't convey the Green Goblin like the comics did.
I haven't seen the movie myself, though I'm a bit put off by the fact that they seem to have done a terrible job with one of my favourite villains (Venom), I mean since when was Eddie Brock as wimpy looking as Peter Parker? He's supposed to be a jock. I'm just gonna wait 'til it comes out on DVD.
I've heard that there are talks of another Spidey movie, and since they insist on killing off at least one character per movie, I've got $5 that Gwynn Stacy is next.
