Greetings, True Believers! I am very happy to say that I went to the movies yesterday and saw Spiderman 3, and after reading all of the negative reviews, the critics can kiss my big black symbiote.
This movie ROCKED!
Yeah, it was a little long in spots, but who cares? So you get a little more bang for your buck! The story was awesome!
I really don't want to spoil anything for anyone, but I just have to share a couple of details from the movie.
First, the black costume was incredible. It was sleek, it absorbed all light, and it came equipped with an extra-roomy trunk, which was perfect for storing Spidey's camera and film. But even better than the black costume was what he went to at the very end of the movie -- the purple costume. Just wait until you see what he can do in the purple.
Also, I have to say that I don't recall from the comics the Sandman always singing Opera whenever he fought, but in the movie, it just works. Thomas Haden Church has an OUTSTANDING voice, and it is put to good use here. The scene where he is sleeping in a rotating hourglass is also pretty funny.
At first, I didn't understand why the character of Mary Jane Watson was being played by a different actress in part 3. Especially since Kirsten Dunst is actually IN the movie -- but playing a different character (by the name of Foxy Cleopatra), but after the first 2 hours and 10 minutes, it all fell into place.
Finally, if anyone can tell me why Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump both make cameos in this movie, I would be eternally grateful.
Go see it -- you won't be sorry!!
