Spider-Man 3 is like, bizarrely bad. So many great actors, a great director, some genuinely great action sequences.
But man! What a disaster. I remember my horror as I watched the "Emo Peter Parker dancing down the street" scene at the midnight premiere. I distinctly remember audibly saying, "It's a dream sequence, right? This HAS to be a dream. It HAS to be! Wait, he's dancing AGAIN? And wha--he just slapped MJ in the face?? WAKE UP PETER PARKER!!!!"
Bad. So incredibly bad.
Which is why I'm so surprised at the somewhat "meh" reaction of The Amazing Spider-Man from critics. It has a 75% on RT, and I feel like, while not a masterpiece, the movie is really darn fun, has great performances, great set-pieces, and it gets the franchise back on stable ground after the debacle of S3. Seriously. There's no way they could do another Spidey without rebooting it after S3.
Hey guys...why is Topher Grace in this movie, and why does his venom suit keep showing me his face instead of venom's?
