Spiderman 3

I went to the midnight showing (first time I've ever done that) with my friend B last night. We invited the other folks at our weekly Starbucks gathering but no one else wanted to stay up that late. LOL Both of us agreed that while it was pretty good it didn't come close to comparing to the first two movies and we didn't think it was worth staying up for the midnight show.

I liked the additional humor but I thought the cheesy factor was overdone and ended up being too much. There was some wonderful character growth for a few of the characters (Peter, Henry, Marko especially) though MJ was just too whiny for me. Kirsten Dunst sure has the screaming talent mastered though. LOL

I think the movie was a little too long and there were some parts that really seemed to drag. I think they could have cut 30 minutes or so from the story and then the movie would have more of an impact yet we still wouldn't have lost any of the lesson learning or the character growth.

I was really disappointed we didn't get to see more of Venom. He's such a cool bad guy I would have loved more of him. He's really only in the last half hour or so.

Effects were very well done. The Sandman scenes were fantastic. The symbiote scenes where it attached itself to Spidey and later Eddie was really cool too.

I have a new appreciation for James Franco as I thought he did an incredible job in his role. And Thomas Haden Church... He's come a LONG way from his time on Wings.

I took my fourteen year old son, along with his best friend, to see Spidey 3, and I agree that this is not as good as previous installments, but you can't fault the f/x, which were great.

We just saw Shrek 3, which wasn't as good as the earlier ones, IMO. I haven't seen POTC 3 yet, but if one believes the reviews, three isn't a charm.
