So I did get out of the house to see “Spiderman 3.” After far too many “It’s was okay” remarks, I wasn’t expecting to be wowed . . . and I want. It was just okay. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t great. If you haven’t seen it, this may spoil some things!
First off, there was just TOO much going on. That I think was the downfall. You had the black spidey suit. Then there was Harry, back for revenge. Then Flint Marko/The Sandman. Finally Eddie Brock, who became Venom. Tooooooo much! It was like they felt they had to be Batman and put in more villains. They should have stuck with just one villain. The Sandman was just terrible in my opinion. MOST of the movie was wasted on him while Venom basically got the shaft. Venom should have been the focus. Harry/The Goblin just should have been left out all together.
Then there was Spidey’s love interest, MJ (Mary Jane). She was a total whiny cheating bitch in the movie. Sure Peter was just as jerky, but she was just awful I felt. It just became really hard to feel sorry for her, let alone care if Spiderman rescued her (again).
They also tried to make the movie funny. I guess they felt the darkness of the first two didn’t work so well, so they were going to make us laugh. Oh the audience laughed, but I suspect more because the funny scenes just came off as stupidly funny. What was funny was how hard the movie went to hide the fact that Spiderman had gotten, well, fat. My friend reminded me in one part of the movie Eddie even commented that Spiderman looked a little chunky in recent photos. Don’t expect any buff shots of Peter Parker as in the previous films, as all shirtless shots are quick or above the shoulders only lol.
Was it worth seeing? Sure, they all are at least once. But like the others, I think I’ve only seen them twice and never again.

I wasn’t a huge fan of the movie either. Way too much going on with all of the villains. Venom just did not get enough screen time. I also thought the humor was a little cartoonish and silly when he was supposedly being dark. I was so looking forward to it…oh well. Hopefully the 3rd Pirates will be better. I’m a little nervous about that one!
I laughed my ass off almost throughout the whole movie….mostly because it was just so bad (in terms of funny).
I agree that there was too much going on. Venom was the best villian by far.
haha everytime the Sandman entered the picture, there was the orchestra playing in the low registers, that sounded something like Jaws and Twister combined.
