This movie was horrid, I went with 5 friends and every single one agreed that it was horrid. The most annoying and the thing that angered me the most was that not only did it seem like Peter and MJ’s relationship was COMPLETELY destroyed, but it was never even clarified as to whether or not MJ had slept with Harry or if she just said that because Harry had threatened her, all he did was stand by a tree and snicker menacingly.
I think it weakened a little by the third act, due in part to scenes throughout the whole movie being a little longer than they needed to be, forcing the ending to feel fairly rushed.
Some of the drama felt very overbearing. The phrase “tries to hard” comes to mind.
The Harry and Peter resolution was pretty pathetic.
I was a little disappointed in Sandman’s resolution. Really, it was was going good, but I was just expecting Marko to give himself up. Pete forgiving him and letting him go scott free felt a little weird.
Ultimately, I’m not sure what makes this movie worth seeing.
The only things like that did not like was
* PP’s Emo Hair Cut.
* Vemon speaking and not saying WE or US.
* The relationship between MJ and PP is a extremely messed up right now and I did leave the movie on a low note.
My main complaints are that Venom’s voice wasn’t menacing enough, and that he was in the film for such a short time. I really wanted to see more of him. And now there’s no chance he’ll be in another film.
Bruce Cambell stole the scene with his cameo. I also think he got the biggest cheers.
First off, the freakin’ dino noise that Sandman and Venom (especially) made was down right annoying… Second, they didn’t explore at all the presence of the symbiote (such as Venom saying “us”, “we”, or “my other” and especially the fact that the symbiote was thirsting for revenge against Peter for rejecting it…) And third, as much as I loved Topher Grace’s performance, I wished Venom had his twisted sense of humor!! (A fault of the writers IMO)
I loved various costumes and effects, except the “gotta show the actors face!”. I mean, what was the practical point of Harry’s face-mask-thing when he only used it for about 5% of all his flying scenes?
I’m slightly curious about what Steve “A is A” Ditko would say about the final Sandman scene
Didn’t like how Spidey just HAPPENED to remove the suit in a clock tower, BEFORE it had been established that the symbiote didn’t like sound.
Also, didn’t like Eddie going to the church to ask God to kill Peter (huh?) instead of being about to commit suicide.
Sandman’s ending is bad, not enough screen time for Venom when he’s still Eddie. And the most important of all, not enough Black Spider-Man kicking ass!!!
Am I the only one here who really hated the ending? This is supposed to be a self-contained trilogy, so how on earth could they let Peter’s life, as far as we know, end in depressing tragedy? by the end of the movie, I still didn’t feel like Spidey was a hero again. He was no longer a villain, but he wasn’t quite back to being a hero either. They really should have tacked on another 10-15 minutes of Peter trying to undo all the bad things he did and make amends with MJ. I would have left the theater feeling a lot better if they had, instead I just felt rather depressed because the ending was rushed.
I liked it but…
I think the massive number of coincidences hurt the movie for me.
The man who really killed Uncle Ben happens to be transformed into a superhero in a crazy accident.
The blob of alien goo falls near Peter Parker, completely by chance.
Eddie Brock goes to the same church Spider-Man went to get rid of the symbiote, and learns Spider-Man’s identity.
Some other random complaints
There’s no subway in New York that’s that strange.
Symbiote Peter was kinda laughable. In a bad way.
People in the theater applauded Peter smacking MJ.
Venom sometimes seemed overly ridiculous. Not “Green Goblin” bad but not as cool as Doctor Octopus/ Goblin Jr/ Sandman.
It’s definitely the weakest of the three movies.
They tried to do too much in limited screen time. Sandman’s fight scenes with Spidey were far too short. Especially the armoured car one. Sandman was a good villain, but his scenes were far too brief. Church was wasted, though. Half the time he was a cgi sand monster with no personality.
Eddie Brock was wasted. He was the stereotypical ass hole, and was completely uninteresting, IMO. Just like the comic version. Venom came and went. “Being bad makes me happy”, which saturday morning cartoon villain did he steal that line from? His demise was absolute. Even saw his skeleton in the explosion. It’s like Raimi was making absolutely sure he can never return, and I’m glad. There’s nothing interesting left to do with the character anyway.
Gwen and Captain Stacy were nice additions, but they were pretty much irrelevant to the plot. They, like Venom, were there purely to please fans.
the music score was meh. I was disappointed the villains didn’t have their own themes like Ock and Goblin did.
Overall, it was a good movie, but nowhere near as good as the previous two. It missed out on so much potential, and bit off more than it could chew.
Spider-Man 2 is the best of the franchise, IMO. Followed by SM-1, and then SM-3.
There was way, way, way too much crammed in there. If three villains sounded like too much to you, well, you were write. There was one that needed to be cut, and well, it was Venom.
Oh, and I hated Jimminy Cricket the Butler. So, you cleaned Norman Osborn’s wounds, it was obvious he died by his own hands, and you didn’t tell Harry this two movies ago. You knew that Norman Osborn was the Green Goblin, and didn’t make millions writing the tell-all book. You give the moral speech which convinces Harry to help Peter… weakest scene in the entire movie. Utterly contrived.
please tell me i’m not the only one who thought this movie was absolutely awful. First of all, what was that dialogue???? How did no one else think that it wasn’t one of the cheesiest written movies ever? It was so cliched, overacted and downright awful. I was literally squirming in my seat during those so-called emotion scenes.
Second, you have got to be kidding me with a plot like that. Ok, so let me get this straight. Flint Marko just happened to be running through the New York City and stumbled into a a pit where they were doing some weird scientific experiments on sand in the middle of nowhere and in the middle of the night. yeeaahh ok. Now on to the alien symbiote. This alien material has fallen out of space and it just so happens to land near the Peter Parker’s web hammock. It latches onto him and causes him to turn into an a$$hole; symbolized by the bangs he pulls down onto his forehead. Wow, I didn’t think this movie could get worse at the point. But I was completely wrong. The second that he got onto stage at that jazz club and started to play the piano I started to get sick to my stomach and I got up and left.
Thank god I walked out at that point because from what I was told, it only got more ridiculous. Seriously though, someone please tell me someone out there agrees. This is the best they could do with one of the biggest budgets in hollywood history? WOW
Oh and the first fight scene with Spiderman and the Goblin looked far too cartoony. And Spiderman’s really not one for trying to hide his identity much is he? That annoyed me. Oh, and the dancing scene in Harry’s kitchen was embarassing too.
Oh, and Venom’s Brock voice was a bit silly. If he wa sspeaking witth the Venom head on it should have been monstrous. It looked absurd otherwise. And if we were meant to feel sorry for The Sandman then that failed as well. Once again I blame the fact that they didn’t devote enough time to developing the character.
Sandman was too old, had big chapped lips and horrible theme music. His theme music was a trombone that sounded like an old slowing waddling with depends on. Burrr Burrr, Burrr Burrr. Give me a break.
Venom beat the shit out of Spidey too much. Spidey couldn’t fight him, so he had to use sound against him. This was a coup out to me.
I thought it was supposed to be Spider-Man 3 not Mary Jane 3.
My girlfriend said she felt like she was watching chick flick love story with fighting in it, not a superhero movie. All the love triangles were ridiculous.
