With Spider-Man 3
just around the corner, I thought it would make sense to make a thread dedicated to its discussion. And so I did. So as to not completely gunk up the OP, you can feel free to read more about it on the Spider-Man 3 Wikipedia entry
, or check out the film's official website, which is linked earlier in this fabulous little blurb.

. Includes some Gwen on Mary Jane action, Spidey saving a screaming women during a construction catastrophe, and Eddie Brock's first transformation.
So, I thought the first movie was alright, thought the second was great, and hope to see the third one continue this upward trend. I've already bought my ticket for Thursday night's midnight show, and I'm pretty excited to say the least. While I am
a fan of the Spider-Man comics (though I haven't read much Ultimate), I can acknowledge that these movies simply aren't
going to be the same sort of thing as Sin City
, and I can view them as separate but wholly entertaining entities. I do not expect that Gwen will really get the characterization or screen time she deserves (really, she should've replaced MJ in the first movie), but I plan to not shit my pants over it in favor of, hopefully, enjoying the movie. Raimi is a pretty swell guy.
