1. Kirstin Dunst's screaming becomes wicked annoying
2. The flying effects look like complete and total computer pixilation instead of just when you cross your eyes
3. The storyline actually BEGINS TO SEEM LIKE THE MOST COHERENT OF ALL THE MOVIES PROBABLY EVEN MORE SO THEN ANY OF THE BATMAN AND SUPERMAN MOVIES I SWEAR. You can see where storylines start unlike when we all saw it in May 2007 and were all like ?!?
4. Everything the filmmakers have going for them that they didn't think people noticed from 1 that became popular by 2 such as the music and Ursula...they overloaded with in 3 until nobody wanted to see it ever again.
5. Gwen Stacy's not attractive to me anymore. She was for a long time.
6. As I read more posts on the internet about kirstin dunst, certain cruel adjectives have stuck with me and make seeing her in spiderman 3 VERY difficult
7. It takes god damn 17 minutes before the first fight. Remember when we came back in from our cigarette and just figured we missed one until the New Goblin fight went on for 20 minutes?

I kinda expected this, especially after I finally saw Spider-Man 2. Y’know, how Harry Osborne looked in the mirror, and he saw Norman saying ‘’Avenge me!!’’. I did not expect the New Goblin to be such a disappointment, though. He looks completely different(even less of a goblin than his predecessor, the Green Goblin), his glider even changed… Oh well.

I do like some changes to his gadgets. His glider is faster, he has a nice blade-thingamajig, and he is (apparently) stronger then the Green Goblin. Though he is not as smart. When Harry confronted Peter, he was actually beaten by Peters web. I witnessed a thrilling battle between Peter and Harry in the alley. Next moment(though it was a funny one), Harry flew against a web line, then he just crashed. Another disappointment was the brawl between Black Suited Spider-Man between Harry inside his house. Even if Spider-Man wore the black suit, I did not expect Harry to lose so easily.

On a scale of 1/10 of how much I like the New Goblin in the movie: 5/10. His costume changed to much, and doesn’t look like the Goblin anymore. Though his gadgets have improved for the better, I still like the...

My friends and I decided to go see a movie. They agreed that they wanted to see the ""Amazing Spider-Man" and invited me along. Even though I probably would have rather seen "Brave", I decided to go, figuring that it was probably a decent movie and that seeing as how I am taking a screenwriting course this year and have never seen a superhero movie, it was probably a good idea.

I was completely blown away. I loved that film and am waiting for it to come out on DVD so I can run out and buy it.

In the meantime, I decided to get "Spider-Man" (2002) with Toby Maguire. I was disappointed. Yes it was a good film, but nothing in comparison with the new one. Let me give my reasons:

I like the way the new Peter Parker Character was written

I like Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker better. He was a smart ass, which draws me to the character just based on personal preference. I mean, how can you get by this:

Spider-Man: You know, if you're going to steel a car, it's better if you don't dress like a car thief

Publicity still
The Amazing Spider-Man is an upcoming 2012 superhero film currently in production. It is the fourth Columbia Pictures film based on the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man and the first film in a rebooted Spider-Man film franchise. Originally, Spider-Man 4 was planned for release in 2011; however, in 2010 the film was canceled due to Sam Raimi's withdrawal from the project. Sony announced that the franchise will in turn be rebooted with new director Marc Webb and a new cast which includes Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as the Lizard. The reboot's intention is to have Peter Parker back to developing his abilities in high school. It is scheduled to be released in 3-D on July 3, 2012.

Cast

* Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker / Spider-Man: A high school student who is bitten by a radioactive spider and gains spider-like abilities. Garfield, who was a fan of the comic book from the age of four, drew from his own life experiences as inspiration for the role revealing, "I was thinking of my history and thinking of the kid at school who I wasn't as strong as, who behaved badly to a...

Boy, did I not expect this. Though, after Doc Oc, the Sandman is my favourite movie villain. He has by far the greatest background of all the Spider-Man villains from the movies. Y’know, he’s actually a criminal, though as he calls himself: ‘not a bad person’. He only does it for his little daughter Penny, who needs an operation but Flint and his wife can’t afford them(that’s a great father, isn’t it?).

After Flint Marco ran away once again from the cops, he got himself inside some sort of whirlpool of sand, changing his molecules as if they where made from sand. That also makes for a brilliant scene where Flint tries to crawl out of the sand(lol, it looks just like a baby who tries to stand and makes his first steps). He realizes he could damn well use those powers to get money to pay the medication bills for Penny. Later, he nearly got to his end when he confronted Spider-Man in the subways. He got resurrected somehow, and focuses on Spider-Man. He teams up with Eddy Brock, a former photographer from the Daily Bugle and rival of Peter.

Three words: Impressive, though disappointing. He doesn’t look like a goblin, and certainly not like the one in the comics. Though, most of the changes in Goblin’s costume where for the better, I’d say. They improved his glider by far, his suit(though it doesn’t look goblin-ish) looks awesome, and his pumpkin bombs would have made people die of laughter if it where actual pumpkins in the movie.

The Green Goblin is being played by a great actor(one of the best, in my opinion). Willem Dafoe has played in a lot of movies, but was on his best in Spider-Man. It was too bad he had to wear that mask, though. He also played a lot of ‘insane’ roles before(Speed 2: Crouse Control). Willem’s voice also suites the Green Goblin perfectly.

On a scale of 1/10 of how I liked the Green Goblin in the movie: 8/10. His glider is awesome, they improved his costume (partly), and is played by a great actor.

I hear and read about a lot of people who where disappointed by how they the makers of Spider-Man 3 put Venom in the movie. I really must say: why? Every Venom-fan is either used to the original blue version, or the dark, bulky Ultimate Spider-Man variety. Also, people complain about the reason that 'his tongue wasn't long enough'. Like Eddy Brock said in Spider-Man 3: WHAT THE HELL?

A lot of people also said Venom didn't appear/do much in the movie. WRONG. He already appeared in the first 10/15 minutes or so. Remember when Peter and MJ where all kissing and doing romantic and when that meteorite crashed? Venom came crawling out there and clung to Peter's bike as the two lovebirds left. From there, it made Peter's life miserable. It becomes the main troublemaker in this little drama. Venom isn't just Venom when merged with Eddy, it is the Symbiote.

On a scale of 1/10 of how much I liked Venom in the movie: 8/10. He/It made a good appearance, looked awesome, and his TONGUE WAS CLEARLY VISIBLE(like, geez guys).

Out of al the Spider-Man movie villains, this is probably my favourite. Especially in costume design he has improved terrifically. The thing I love most about this villain are the tentacles, they seem so much more dangerous now, even though they’ve always been.

His personality also changed a bit, for the better. He went from a crazy, highly intelligent professor into an brilliant, loving person(on the inside) obsessed with his work, and his wife, Rosie. He just got that crazy because of he him thinking Spider-Man was responsible for Rosie’s death. In truth, it was Otto himself because of a mistake in his wicked experiment to manipulate a sun. When he turns into a bad guy, that’s where he gets awesome. He’s nearly invincible with his four dangerous tentacles having their own will and protecting Otto. In the comics, Otto still has full control over his tentacles. In the movie, his tentacles almost have full control over Otto. I like the movie plot better, as it makes for an awesome final.

"THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN" (2012) Review

Five years after the release of 2007's "SPIDER-MAN 3", Sony Pictures and Marvel Films decided to release a new SPIDER-MAN movie. The latter proved not to be a third sequel to the 2002 movie, "SPIDER-MAN". Instead, it turned out to be a franchise re-boot featuring a new actor in the lead and the first film of a new series of films.

With Andrew Garfield now portraying Peter Parker aka Spider-Man and Marc Webb directing, "THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN" commenced upon an entirely new saga about the web slinger. In this film, Peter is a geeky high school student and science major who lives with his Uncle Ben and Aunt May in a suburb of Queens, New York. At least a decade earlier, he had witnessed the mysterious disappearance of his father and mother, scientist Richard Parker and his wife, Mary. After discovering his father's old briefcase, Peter makes the acquaintance of the latter's former lab partner, Dr. Curt Connors, who is now working as a geneticist at Oscorp. Dr. Connors is working on cross-breeding experiments in order to discover a formula based on lizard DNA in order to regenerate...

Mary Jane Watson, who doesn't know about her? Successful model/actress, Spidey's girlfriend later turned wife...If you're into Spider-man you at least must know about Mary Jane and her overall presence in the Spidey universe.

Yet for some inexplicable reason, it seems that Mary Jane has gathered a lot of hate in the recent years (while Gwen Stacy, Spidey's doomed girlfriend, has been placed on a pedestal), whether it be from poor reinterpretations of her, annoyed fans, or writers who just don't get her character.

Why does she get so much unneeded hate? Is it because of an aspect of her character that nobody stands, or is it because fans are still butthurt that they killed off Gwen in order to make Pete/MJ canon?

First of all there must be a context. The core of MJ's character is that she is a fun, free-spirited girl who prefers to not take life too seriously, but at the same time she is a very supportive, loyal and good friend who'll help Peter (or her other loved ones) in any way that's possible.

SINGAPORE/LOS ANGELES, FEBRUARY 25TH, 2014: Following the recent announcement that Spider-Man is the first Super Hero ambassador for Earth Hour, the global movement organised by WWF, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone from the highly anticipated motion picture The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have chosen to back two separate projects on ‘Earth Hour Blue’, a new crowdfunding and crowdsourcing platform for the planet.

With a message to inspire individuals to use their power to become a Super Hero for the planet, the new platform launched from Earth Hour’s global headquarters in Singapore will allow anyone to use their voice or their dollar to take action and support projects across the globe.

Now run globally from Singapore at the heart of Asia, Earth Hour has rapidly grown to involve hundreds of millions of people from all walks of life and global landmarks across 7000 cities and towns and 154 countries and territories.

Andrew Garfield, who plays Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the upcoming movie The Amazing Spider-Man 2, is supporting the Earth Hour Blue project ‘A Flame Called Hope’. The project aims to provide clean bio-gas energy for local...

there are 2 different series of spiderman movies which have 2 different actors. 1st is Spiderman trilogy. The spiderman trilogy is a total sell out but various of the people didn't liked the role of Toby McGuire. As he seems like a total idiot in that role.I am not offending anybody but that is the truth.
2nd is The Amazing Spiderman which is recently released. Andrew Garfield is totally right for this acting job. He is handsome and has the potential to make himself a movie star legend.

Sorry Toby but you are just not the one the fans are looking.

When spiderman put on the black suit it pretty much ruined his life as aunt may said "revenge is like a poison." well in a way it was a poison. for if spiderman hadn't gotten rid of the suit when he had the chance he could have avoided harries death in the film.

My least favorite part of the 3rd film was when peter did his symbiote strut. he looked like a guy who had too much to drink.

But he did redeem himself when he saved mary jane from venom. Although it was his fault in the first place that she was in this mess.

In all spidy made a huge mistake choosing power over right mindedness

Think about it. You've got boys of all ages and shapes and kinds. You got men...all remembering the comic and superman movies basically. You get everyone in the world to come to this movie. You get every ad campaign and taxi cab and twenty different versions of the poster. You got public school kids by the score. You got gangbangers, thugs, punks, freaks, nuts, sarcastic people looking to bag on nerdy Peter or Ugly Kirstin. You got every god damn restaurant promotion and K-Mart crossover. Got milk Sandman? A spidey-mask on the Jesus sculpture over Sao Paolo? On the MOON?! Criminals in prison?! Everybody in the world is going to see this movie just to weigh in on how stupid they consider the concept of "hype" in general. All ready to bag this movie if it doesn't really produce the goods. And what does Raimi open with?

Kirstin Dunst singing. And an EN-TIRE SONG!! Claps and everything! Audience testimonials like after a Martin Lawrence stand-up act that's on HBO. YO!!! You see what I'm saying?! How rich is Sam Raimi that he didn't consider the reaction of Spider-Man fans? Did he not take pride in the fact that anyone who would kick a bully's butt in real life was super...

After several months of speculation, it is finally happening. Sony link Spider-Man's film rights with Marvel Studios, meaning that Spider-Man will be featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Spider-Man will make an appearance in Captain America: Civil War for 2016 and will later be featured in his own movie in 2017.

The role link, as Andrew Garfield has chosen not to continue working in the series. His reasons for quitting are uncertain; perhaps he was tired of Sony withholding information about the status of the series from him or he was disappointed by the movies' mediocre reception. Whatever the case, Andrew is out and Marvel is looking for a replacement.

Although I find it unfortunate that Andrew is not returning, I'm happy to see Spider-Man will appear alongside Marvel's other big stars.

"SPIDER-MAN" (2002) Review

I have been a major fan of the Marvel Comics character, Spider-Man, for a long time. When I was a kid, I used to read "The Amazing Spider-Man" comic strip from my local newspaper on a daily basis. I was also a regular viewer of the reruns from the 1967-70 animated series "SPIDER-MAN" and the 1978-79 television series, "THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN", which starred Nicholas Hammond. So when Columbia Pictures released a movie version of the comic book web crawler twelve years ago, I was a happy camper.

Ironically, I have no memories of any particular episode from either the animated series or the live-action series. All I know is that I used to watch both. But there is no way I could ever forget director Sam Rami's 2002 film adaptation, which starred Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man. How could I? I own a DVD copy of the movie.

"SPIDER-MAN" is basically Rami and screenwriter David Koepp's take on the web slinger's origins. The movie begins with teenager Peter Parker living with his Uncle Ben and Aunt May in Forest Hills, a suburb in Queens, New York. Peter is in love with...

This article is written by Mike Ryan, the senior editor of ScreenCrush



First thing, if you haven’t yet seen ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ you should not be reading this article as it contains major spoilers for the ending of the film.

Okay, now that that business is out of the way … director Marc Webb has been hinting for some time that the events in his film could eventually emulate what occurred in the pages of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ #121, which (last chance) depicts the death of Peter Parker’s love interest, Gwen Stacy — who is played by Emma Stone in the two most recent Spider-Man films.

Now that you’ve seen ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ we asked director Marc Webb about everything that went into the final shot of Gwen falling off the clock tower, including when it was decided to kill off Gwen (early); if there were any second thoughts; why the original scene had to be re-shot; and why ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ ended on an upbeat note, as opposed to leaving us with a dark ending.
