    Synopsis


    Spider-Man 3
    Your friendly neighborhood web-slinger is back, only this time his sunny outlook has become partially overcast in the third chapter of director Sam Raimi's Spider-Man saga. Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, and James Franco return to reprise their roles from the previous two installments, with Thomas Haden Church, Topher Grace, and Bryce Dallas Howard making their first appearances in the series as Flint Marko (aka Sandman), Eddie Brock (aka Venom), and Gwen Stacy, respectively. Peter Parker (Maguire) has finally leaned to walk the middle ground between being the superhero that his city needs and the man that Mary Jane (Dunst) loves. All is well in New York City until one night, as Peter and M.J. sit gazing at the stars, a falling comet streams across the sky and crashes into the ground close by. But this isn't any ordinary shooting star, and upon impact the mysterious space rock is split open to reveal a shape-shifting symbiote with the power to overtake anything that it comes into contact with. Later, as Harry Osborn (James Franco) acquires his late father's flying board, engineers a powerful new Goblin outfit, and takes to the sky to avenge dad's death, the mysterious space sludge infects both Peter's Spider-Man suit and ambitious street photographer Eddie Brock (Grace). Peter's strange new suit gives him a newfound sense of power as it gradually overpowers his personality, and he discovers that escaped convict Flint Marko was in fact the man responsible for the death of Uncle Ben (Cliff Robertson). Unfortunately for Peter, Marko has recently acquired the power to morph at will and quickly completes his transformation into the dreaded Sandman. As the Sandman gives in to his darkest criminal instincts and the slithering space symbiote transforms Eddie Brock into the nightmarish fanged villain known as Venom, the citizens of New York City must once again call on Spider-Man to fend off destructive forces that are far too powerful for the likes of mortal man. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      if you give a movie a 3/5 star rating, you can either give it a Yes or No for reccomending, i say NO. peter parker, Stop Narrarating. in almost every fight scene, you can spot a few moments where peter is completely animated so it makes the movie look like shrek. if sam raimi directs the fourth spider-man, he better darken it up like batman begins, or do something with it. spidey turns all emo in this installment and thats both good and bad. the bad is, he is emo, and when hes trying the charm all the chicks, hes embarrasing himself. the good is the scene in the jazz club. the sandman does a pretty good job, but just gets plain stupid in the fight. topher graces 'venom' only appears for the final battle which was dissapointing, and on top of that, he barely makes appearances as eddy brock in the news room. venom does look pretty awsome, though. marry jane is still boring and peter parker needs to stop crying. this is the longest spider-man yet but not the best by any meens. harry comes back, but as hobgoblin-whatever that means. harry does do pretty good in this even if he does act like a little kid in some parts. but theres one more thing that bothers me along with the countless flaws of this movie, why cant harry believe peter. i mean come on, his dad was the green goblin and peter is spider-man. why cant he accecpt that he was trying to kill peter. in other words, harry is an idiot. so when turns all emo, he finally gets tired of convincing harry of the truth and does something that noone expected. this movie may look great on blu-ray, but is not great overall. the only reason i own it is because it came with my ps3. and note to sam raimi and all the filmakers: if your gonna have all these villains and character changes, take advantage of the situation other than just throwing a bunch of stuff together because you had money.

      The Battle Within...

      Posted
      Superman

      The first Spider-Man movie was very well done. It's predecessor, Spider-Man 2, was even better, ranking as one of the best superhero movies ever made. But what about Spider-Man 3? Does it rise to the occasion and join the other two films to form a solid superhero trilogy? Some may beg to differ, but my answer is yes. There are several reasons for this answer, the first of which is the action. The action sequences and fight scenes aren't terribly new or groundbreaking, but are still on parr with the first two films and are fun to watch. Venom, Sandman, and Harry are all colorful comic book characters that serve as good antagonists to Spider-Man Though it hasn't been a large aspect of the Spider-Man films, humor has always been a welcome part of the movies in the past. Even among the darker nature of Spider-Man 3, comic relief still finds its way to the surface now and then. Peter Parker's attempt to be a bad boy is a failure, but still funny to watch. Best of all, Bruce Campbell returns with a cameo appearances that tops the other two. However, even though the laughs are funny and the action is exciting, I think this film's greatest credit is its story. Sam Raimi successfully takes the black suit and uses it to spin a story of vengeance and anger which is in turn replaced by redemption and forgiveness. Peter Parker showcases these themes in a manner that is epic, yet touching. Overall, I must say the story is what makes this movie a winner. So does this movie live up to the other two? Once again I say that it does. Though the surreal nature of this film is a bit of a departure from the more down-to-earth elements of its predecessors, the story is still as well-crafted and true as ever. Put in this movie and let yourself go into the epic, exciting comic book world. You won't regret it.

      Good Movie, Bad Hype

      "Okay, lets get one thing straight, Spidey 3 is not as good as Spidey 2. So if you were expecting it to be, you're in for a disappointment. But if you're like me, and watch the movie without expecting it to be anything but a good movie, you're in for a treat! Spidey 3 has 3 villains, Gobby Jr., Sandman, and Venom. Let's start with Sandman. In his role Topher Grace fulfilled the helpless man who goes evil. Flint Marko is just a poor man who needs money for his daughter's disease. In his quest for it, he becomes a criminal. Director Sam Raimi does a good job of developing Sandy and in the end. making him empathized with. New Goblin got his just desserts too. We have seen Harry evolve over all three movies, and now we see his final incarnation. He fits his role as anti-Spidey, cunning-Gobby, and a man out for revenge. His screen-time was proficient and we got the most out of New Goblin that was possible. Alas, we come to Venom. Wow, I could tell Raimi didn't want him in the movie. He was so short-changed its not even funny. We saw Venom come to life, coerce Sandy, and become a two-punch knockout for Spidey. Except his screen time was too short. We got as much possible out of him for the script, but it would have been nice to see some comic homage in his department. F/X were just sick as we have come to expect, humor was good, too much dancing for my taste, but on the whole a great flick. Spiderman 3 is a really good movie. The only reason people knock it is b/c its not as good as Spiderman 2. Make no mistake Spidey 3 is great, just not as great as Spidey 2."

      A good, but not great, end to a classic trilogy

      Posted

      Although this film was anticipated perhaps more highly than any other this decade, it was met with lukewarm reviews when it finally hit last May. I can understand where some of these come from, as this is most certainly not the same kind of film that made the first two (especially Spider-Man 2) so great. It's not a bad film per se, and definitely has its merits, but it also has some gaping flaws that stand out very easily. Certain scenes just don't work at all, and if you've seen the movie, chances are you know exactly what I'm talking about (a jazz club? seriously? c'mon, Sam Raimi!). That, and some of the dialogue seems a little, well, bad. But as I said before, the movie does have bright points. The action scenes and CGI are absolutely amazing. The crane scene and final battle in particular are a sight to behold. The ending (don't worry, I'm not going to spoil it) is very emotional and ties up the entire trilogy quite nicely. It leaves the door open for more films, but you don't feel as though there is unfinished business if there isn't (but trust me, there will be eventually). Oh, and the villain Venom, who shows up for the third act, is amazing. Kudos to Topher Grace for taking an underwritten role and running with it. He's not quite Doc Ock, but he's not too far behind. Overall, it's a good movie, but seems to be pretty polarizing. You'll have to see it yourself to get your own opinion on it.

      Could have been better

      First of all Topher Grace is a scronny little white kid and Eddie Brock in the comics is a muscular jock so that was one bad decision. Two the new Goblin wasn't bad, but he is supposed to be the new green goblin not the green surfer. Last of all Peter Parker is supposed to have some personality changes due to the suit, but going emo is not the best route. Perhaps my favorite scene of the suit altering his personality is when he totally loses his cool and gets in a fight with this bouncer at this little jazz club where Mary Jane works. Now that all the negative is out of the way...Venom looked sweet like I never expected him to look as good as he did, he could have been a little bigger but over all I am very satisfied with his appearance. There is A LOT of personality issues that have much to do with the developing of the character of Spiderman, but they may have had just a little too much of that and not enough fighting. I saw this movie on blu-ray at my friends place and have to say that it looked really good unfortunately he doesn't have surround sound so I couldn't tell you the difference in just hearing it. I have DVDs that I would sell to upgrade to blu-ray, but this just doesn't cut it (unless you don't have the movie than you can buy the whole set on blu-ray and that would definately be worth it).

      Worst one so far!

      redandblack6s

      I was looking forward to this film, because as a kid I collected comics. My favorite villian was Venom. So, when this came out, my wife and I went to see it in the theater. Terrible! If you're a fan of the comics DON'T watch it! In fact, I'm going to spoil it for you, and I rarely do this. They did good at the beginning, showing the history of the suit. They got the wrong guy to play Venom though, and just when it gets good they kill off Venom. What the h*ll!!! In the comics, Venom is one of Spiderman's long time enemies, and they only give him like 20 minutes in the movie! That killed it for me. Even my wife, who doesn't know that much about comics, was disappointed. Not to mention, they picked a terrible actor to play Sandman. The casting all around was terrible. The movie builds up too much towards the end, then just stops! Bad ending! Not to mention the fact that Toby Macguire cries through the whole movie, he plays a wuss in this one! This was just a horrible movie! The first two were decent, but this one's the worst, by far, they really screwed up! I do NOT recommend this film! The only reason I didn't give it one star is because the special effects were good, that's all this film has going for it.

      Good Visual Ride

      Movie focuses on Peter starting to lose the world around him. Spiderman is becoming the sole identity of him and he needs a release. When he put the costume down for a bit and lived a regular Peter filled day, that was somewhat funny in the last movie. Now, instead of putting away the suit, he puts on a new one that boosts his physique but lowers his rationale. Instead of losing spidey, he wants more of it, because it feels good apparantly. Eventually, the do-gooder as he is, he fights the suit, which we found out to be Venom as it takes over someone else who, too, enjoys the feeling of elevated power. The whole sandman thing didn't really work for me though, but his character was somewhat pitiful, meaning i felt bad that he just gets stuck in a silo. Ha, oh well. The lovey story is still there like usual as Peter still tries to cling to the real world. Overall, not a bad film. Very visually pleasing. Lighting and effects set the mood and feel of Peter's condition. But, like others have said before, he should be getting more dark and isolated like the Batman movies have done.
