Impressions from the Silver Screen

05.07.07 | 1 Comment

Like most of the rest of the free world, I went and saw Spiderman 3 this past weekend. Stop reading if you haven’t seen it yet. I’ve been reading some pretty negative comments about it from other bloggers, but I’m not quite as negative about it. I thought it was a so-so movie, as opposed to “awesome” or “god-awful”. (Someone explain to me why awesome has an “e” after the “w”, but awful does not.) However, keep in mind that Mrs. Flametoad and I have not been to a movie theater since Casino Royale back in December. These days we’re just thrilled anytime we can leave the tadpoles at home and have a date. I thought many of the fight scenes were either designed with a companion console game in mind, or at the very least they were inspired by the same design sensibilities. I can’t figure out how Eddie Brock/Venom knew about Sandman’s daughter prior to their first meeting. A lot of the plot never would have happened if MJ had just spent 30 seconds communicating what was actually going instead of whining about being misunderstood.

Well if folks communicated, Uncle Ben would have never been killed. Spiderman is about power and responsibility with a severe dose of communication lackage.

I really hate how Gwen Stacey was treated. But I loved the film. Of course, I’m just a big big fanboy.
