The Amazing? Spiderman…322

Saw Spiderman 2 last night.I don’t get it. I heard reviews that were so incredible, that i thought, going into it, that no matter what i heard about the film, or how good it was, it wouldn’t prepare me for how awsome it was going to be.

I figured that i was going to go in and be totally blown the fuck away. Actually i thought, wow, this isn’t really anything that much greater than the first one. Trust me, i loved the first one, and i loved the second one. I just don’t think that it raised the bar as much as people led me to believe. I was super amped for the Alex Ross opening title sequence, and i knew that it was going to be a different experience. Doc Ock was really cool, but i would rather see him, than Peter Parker at the Regular(non octopuss)Doctor. The “Peter Parker goes to the doctor’s office” scene, was not needed. They kinda covered that ground with the “Aunt May and Henry Jackson” scene. We knew that Peter’s powers were getting in the way of his private life. This is told to us during the “Peter Talks to nobody on the other line” scene. Another scene that could have been cut, to show more Doc Ock, was the “I am a wicked skinny bitch who brought you cake scene”. that was just awkward. Someone get that girl some more cake, stat!

Other than wanting more Doc Ock, i loved this movie. I just feel that it isn’t AS Totally Bitchin Awsomely Dope, as everyone says. I think Sam Raimi did a wonderful job. I think the acting was great, i thought the story was good (“comic-bookly” speaking). and i can’t wait for Harry Osborne and Dr. Conners to kick some Spidey ass!

Go see this movie, it is great!

    I’m pretty sure that Gobby will be back, based on what I saw in the movie last night. I’m not sure what’s up with Connors. Remember, there was a Harvey Dent in Batman 1989, but we didn’t see Two-face until several movies later.
    I think I’m kind of with Ralph on this review. The movie was cool, but I needed more action and Spiderman and less emotional blah blah blahing between mediocre actors. Also, Kirsten Dunst looked like she was going to fall asleep any second.
    Dock Ock looked awesome.

      …Bring on the Bad Guys.
      I understand that the whole point of spiderman is that he has a tough time as a regular teenager. And i totally got that. And the scene on the elevated train, touched me. The fact that peter parker finally got recognition for be a regular person, was awsome. i don’t think i needed that much setup in this film. I know he has had a tough time, with his uncles death, and his aunt’s living conditions, and trying to deal with not being able to be with the girl he loves. It just might have been cut a little more. Fuck it though, it is great! and thank baby jesus that Mary Jane called Pete, Tiger! awsome job!

        Yeah, I admit to being pretty fired up that she called him tiger. Also, that subway scene was cool up until the “We’ll save you Spiderman” part, which was a bit too much. I still liked it, though, because I love the idea of all the regular people of New York being total Spiderman fans.
        The part with Hal Sparks was one of my favorites because Spiderman looks so much like Spiderman should look on the big screen. It was cool.

        What the fuck was up with the Horrible-ASS trailers last night.
        i swear to baby jesus those were the worst set of trailers since i saw Tomb Raider. I swear that i would never speak of that night again, but shit last night’s trailers sucked!
        the only one of those movies i would see is National Treasure, which looks like a Davinci Code rip off. And shit man, i don’t even read books! that is how much of a rip off it is. when i recognize that something is ripping off a book. i don’t read. at all! never. and i know that Davinci Code is ripped off. jeez.
        is the davinci code similar, cause i really don’t know. it was just a non-educated guest.

        I haven’t read DaVinci Code either, but I think you’re right about the ripoff thing. What other trailers did we have? Anacondas: Texas Blood Money (bad), Christmas up your Ass (looks bad), I can’t remember the rest.

      • casinoskunk says :

        umm…
        there was the Fresh Prince of Robotlandia, and i think that was it. i can’t remember any others.

      • casinoskunk says :
