    Ok that was pretty amazing seeing all those guys in one movie. Bruce driving Arnie through a warzone in a smart car? I am in.

    Anyone want to bet that the third movie features Mel Gibson as the bad guy with Steven Seagal as his right hand?

    You have to think Seagal is sitting home right now with his wig just spinning on his head that he didn't get in on this.

    If the second is anything like the first, we probably just saw all the good action scenes in that trailer.

    Yeah, they just need Seagal and Gibson now. Too bad Van Damme will probably get killed off, need him around for 3!

    Time has not been kind to Seagal. Gibson may work, though they may get some backlash from letting him appear.

    Does a movie like expendables really warrant spoilers? Its not like it actually has a plot or will be ruined by any advanced information.

    Things will explode and people will be shot, kicked, and punched.

    God I would kill for a film that creates a imaginative, unique and plausible alien world and just fucking explores it. No "alien monster is going to eat us," no "dances with smurfs," no "we're stranded and need to find a way off the planet."

    Just a group of explorers, exploring a single, well thought out, alien planet.

    And no humanoid aliens dammit! You can give them two arms, two legs and a head, but I draw the line there: if it looks more human than the Prawns from District 9, you're FIRED!

    So you want a film version of Wayne Barlowe's Expedition?

    'Cause that sounds awesome, but it would probably work better as a miniseries.

    I dunno, the part where he mocked the car thief was really good Spidey - some of the closest to the ass he tends to act like in the comics.

    Otherwise, it feels amazingly unneeded - we did his origin story just ten years ago, and rather well. It had Macho Man and everything! The retread just feels too soon.

    That's what happens when you sign a contract that only lets you keep the rights if you always have a movie in production, and then lose your director, main actor and main actress after the trilogy finishes.

    I dunno, looks like they could a lot worse. The parents angle was never explored in the first series, and starting with Gwen is a better move than just jumping straight to MJ.

    Plus who doesn't want to see Peter Parker blow a wad in his own face.

    I said it in the comics forum, but this feels like an inverse Raimi situation. Spidey looks pretty spot on, but everything about Peter looks meh.

    Man, I personally am really excited for new Spiderman. I liked the first, I did, but this looks less...I dunno, silly? Though, I will say when I first saw the trailer for it in theaters the first-person swinging sequences kind of gave me a bit of vertigo.

    I am a HUGE Spiderman fan. Have been for many years. I'm old. I stopped reading comics somewhere in the early/mid 90's. That being said, I do not remember any of the Parent stuff this trailer hints at. I enjoyed the Raimi ones quite a bit. I didn't like the non-mechanical web shooters though, so I'm glad that they are back in this new one. Spidey seems nice and cocky and talks smack the way he should, but... Something about this movie is telling me not to go see it. Gwen Stacey is a huge plot point in Spidey's life, and I am curious how true to the comics it will play out though?

    To be fair almost every other film does, as well. That's how tough they will be to beat in quality and financial success.

    Spidey looks good to me. I like the mechanical web shooters being back. I think he seems the right type of a jack ass. I am glad the Lizard is the bad guy, he is an interesting adversary for Spidey. Also glad they are using Gwen and just ignoring MJ atm since that is how it was in the comics. I am not sure it will stand up to TDKR or Avengers but it looks like a fun movie with the bad luck of coming out in the year of possibly some of the best super hero movies in ages.

    Rest of the movie looks fine. Kinda a bit too neon with all the NYC building lights.

    As long as the Lizard isn't taken out by a barrage of patriotic (literal) garbage, it'll be a step up.

    I think what strikes me as lousy about the new Spiderman trailer is that the CG doesn't really seem any better than it did in Spiderman 1, also the lack of daylight webswinging.

    Discovery Channel basically did this, documentary-style, under the title Alien Planet. I remember it being pretty disappointing.

    I'm pretty excited for the new Spider-man because Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone is a huge upgrade from Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst.

    Is Garfield a good actor? The trailers look promising but I haven't seen any prior work he's done.

    I think it would be silly to expect the new Spiderman movie to do better then the debut of the original.

    That thing was practically a cultural phenomenon when it came out, and sort of set the tone for the rest of the action/superhero films for the decade. This movie doesn't really seem to channel the same bottled-lightning effect. I'm sure it'll do decent, but with The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers coming out it's going to get floored pretty quickly.

    EDIT: On a personal note I thought Toby Macguire was the perfect Peter Parker. This new guy doesn't even come close.

    Why are people happy about mechanical web shooters? The organic web-shooters are waaaaay more sensible. A preference for mechanical is a preference for comic-book tomfoolery and purposeless slavery to the source material..

    I think that the intention was that it's a showcase about how smart Parker is. He invented his own little web shooter dealies.

    I don't personally care one way or the other. I don't think that organic is better, I don't think that mechanical is better. I think that the mechanical ones in the trailer look awesome.

    Also, it's weird but I actually kind of like the Lizard as a bad guy more from that trailer. I've always thought that he was kind of a dumb bad guy, but I think it'll actually end up being pretty cool.

    Also loved the mocking of the car thief.

  • Banzai5150Banzai5150 Registered User regular
    For me, the web shooters are how I read the comics and is how Spiderman shoots webs. I know it makes no difference, but it's how I learned about Spidey and I like it that way.

    Lizard is an awesome Villian, and I hope they keep the 2 sides of the Doctor separate.

    I have that on DVD. It would be a lot better if the didn't include the commercial intros and outros on the fucking DVD. I don't need the documentary to stop every ten minutes to tell me what's about to happen followed by what just happened.

    Edit: also I'm pretty sure alien planet was based on the book expedition book that was linked earlier.

    Mechanical web shooters leave me with just one burning question.

    Why the fuck doesn't Peter just start a company, sell the web material and use large chunks of the money he makes to donate to charities? He could still Spider-Man it up, but if great power truly means great responsibility, then Peter has the responsibilty to use his intellect to provide the world a cheap, super strong material that can benefit humanity in dozens of ways, in addition to being able to generate tons of money for charity. On top of enabling his vigilante activities.

    That goes right into the FF logic. It was shown at one point that Reed noticed that they were in the red one month and invented a new type of cell phone for quick cash. Yet he has an entire building of advance robotics, matter transporters, time machines, and enough defense equipment to make anyone in the military jizz in their pants. Reed can cure cancer 20 times over and yet most of it he keeps to prevent Doom from doing the Charleston into the Baxter Building.

  • Undead ScottsmanUndead Scottsman Death Groupie Registered User regular
    Yeah, but Reed doesn't have the dying words of his uncle to live by. I just have trouble with spidey's catchphrase conflicting with the fact that he's pretty much hoarding a miracle substance.
