Spider-Man 3

I have a very mixed reaction concerning Spider-Man 3.  It was both good and bad.  Good being the effects (particularly Flint Marko’s transformation into the Sandman), the plot (for the first half) and the whole revenge/darkness motif throughout the film.  I also really liked Peter and Harry’s final fight.

Of course, there were negatives too.  One, there was a lot going on.  Sure, I was never bored watching the movie but they tried to do too many things at once.  Venom was thrown in like an afterthought, which sucks.  Venom himself didn’t look too good, too cartoonish for my tastes.  Sure, I like that the symbiote resembles Spider-Man.  The special effects on Venom (especially the eyes) could have been done much better.  There were also some scenes that made me wondering “why would the character act that way?”  The symbiote can only do so much…

Anyway, it was worth the money…and I’ll need to go see it again to get a clear opinion on the movie.  Better that money be spent on a heavily anticipated movie than on junior-senior banquet.

Revenge, it’s like a poison.  It can take you over and turn us into something ugly.
