...and it wasn't quite as bad as I heard.
1:48 AM 5/18/07 · Much relieved about Mom's good health and finally able to venture out into the world away from family for the first time in what felt like an eternity (gloom of the impending surgery no doubt put a haze over everything) the first thing I did was head for San Mateo to see Spidey 3. I wasn't entirely looking forward to it but I just felt it was something I had to see. Got a special little surprise in one of de geeks from my geek comm being there, one of the more mysterious ones, but we had tickets for different showings so it was an unexpected but brief conversation.
From my Spidey & geek communities I'd heard a lot about this movie before seeing it, and before all that I'd pretty much known what the story was going to be from beginning to end already. Don't you miss the days where they gave you one brief trailer that didn't give so much away? I kinda think this thing we've got going on now, escalating trailers with more revealed in each one, just kinda takes away from the movie they're advertising. Still, that's not the point here...
I really like the first Spidey movie but it was lacking on certain points. The second one blew me away and while I had issues with it, rare to find a movie I don't have at least some problems with, I absolutely loved it. This third one I'd put between the other two so far as how I felt about it but it was kind of a fun, twisted, painful, torturous ride that I'm glad I took.
Kinda. Sorta. Maybe.
Spidey 3 Short Form:
- I actually liked this movie...but I didn't love it.
- There's a lot about this movie to hate.
- Only to a real Spidey geek, like myself, there are some gross innaccuracies.
- There is a blatant mistake in this movie.
