What can I say… I’m disappointed. I loved the first two films. They were great…they were everything that any other comic book superhero movie should strive to be. They had the right amount of drama, romance, action and comedy. If only they had stuck to same recipe of success…instead, they injected way too much action and corny cheesy comedy.

spider1.jpgLet me see what did I love about the first two films…I loved the narration. We actually get Peter’s perspective of what he’s going through and thus he seems much more human than ever before. The villains…with each movie we are introduced to new villains. With only one villain for each movie…each has more screen time…are better developed…and we are further able to understand where they are coming from. And of course with villains…come the next best things…the great special effect and action sequences…I thought the action scenes with Doc Ock were really cool. The movie also had some really good drama…from Peter losing Uncle Ben, Peter struggling with school and work, contemplating not being Spider-Man anymore and the whole drama with Mary Jane. With a small tinge of comedy and romance…both movies were extremely fun and entertaining.

So what did Spider-Man 3 do wrong? (my opinion anyway). Where was the narration…the voice overs? And the villains…there were like 3…thats like villain overload…you kinda wonder how Spider-Man survived after all the numerous attacks…I know he’s a super hero and all…but he’s becoming less and less human in this movie. Plus…I don’t think the villains were as developed as they could have possibly been…I still don’t get where Sandman is coming from… Is he really bad…or good but extremely tormented? Neither did I like the whole drama with the love triangle between Peter,MJ and Gwen Stacy…I absolutely hate how Gwen was introduced…I for one have never read the comics…but I do know that Gwen is suppose to be Peter’s first love or something…and to throw her into the story just for the love triangle plot…I think thats weak. The worst I have to say…is the whole comedic dance routine…that was utterly ridiculous. Was not the least bit funny…quite a pathetic attempt to inject some light comedy into the movie. Oops…and almost forgot…how many times are we going to see MJ being held hostage by the villain…the damsel in distress again…its getting old…spider2.jpg

So… about the only thing I like about this movie was the special effects and action sequences…especially the chase and fight sequences between Spider-man and the Green Goblin and the formation of Sandman. They look really cool…Spider-man was like bouncing of walls …again awesome. And aww…I hate how it ends…with Harry dying..who’s gonna be the Green Goblin now? And who will the alien symbiote cling onto next?…I think we can be sure will see a Spider-Man 4…hopefully a much better storyline

I think my thoughts a pretty much clear. Overall I did not like this Spider-Man movie at all. Want to watch a great comic super hero movie…watch the first two Spider-Man.

P.S. (2004)

P.S. is about basically about Louise who works at Admissions for Columbia. She is a lonely 39 year old woman whose only friends are her ex-husband and her long time best friend who lives in another town. One day she gets an application from a certain F. Scott Fienstadt …the same name as her high school love who died very young. Curious as to who he is, she sets up an interview. Shockingly…she found that not only does he share the same name…they are pretty much alike in character…using the same quotes…even her best friend agrees…Could he be an incarnation…maybe a relative? And seeing also how much alike he is…she could hardly resist him and they soon begin an affair.

Another movie that I’ve heard close to nothing about. Rented it cause I thought the story seemed interesting…a tad like Birth right?? But that movie wasn’t really that good…P.S was actually quite good…wasn’t as freaky as seeing a grown woman going into a bathtub with a child. Here Louise is 39 and F Scott is at least 20…hardly a child…now it kinda sounds like The Graduate right?…Only that its not. Through out the film I did find myself wondering who is this F Scott…of course he couldn’t be Louise late lover…as she some how believes…In the end…it was a simple coincidence…which I thought was the best way to end it.

Keeping this short. The movie was worth the watch. The story is there. The acting was rather good. Laura Linney as the lonely woman living a rather unfulfilled life and Topher Grace playing the usual smart alec role. I say watch this instead of Birth.
