    were you watching it with dumb people?

    also Spider-Man 3 is totally the best, yet.

    My buddy was bitching because I wouldn't drive him to the theater if he was going to sneak booze in.

    In the Men's room before the film, we heard a bunch of guys talking about how excited they were to see the movie while drunk.

    Multiple times, they yelled shit out during the film.

    At the end, they started booing really loud, and most of the theater joined in with them. It was pretty epic.

    The only other time I can think of that compares is when that same friend and I saw Die Hard 4, and at the end he stood up and applauded as hard as he could, with the rest of the sold-out theater slowly rising and joining him.

    only a hormonal imbalance could cause you to not have fun watching spider-man 3 is what I'm saying

    but what could cause that

    I really do sincerely disagree. I'm not going to pretend there are objective reasons you shouldn't enjoy Spider-Man 3 - if it made you happy, I'm glad to hear it - but I found it just awful. It was easily the worst film I saw that year, if not several years.

    There were too many very poor choices - e.g. having the symbiote be unexplained AND inexplicably land near Peter instead of coming from JJ's son, even w/ the 2nd film setup - that cumulatively passed 'distracting' and became 'distasteful'.

    I love Spider-Man, I'll tell you that. Spider-Man and X-Men were my childhood comics. I definitely don't always agree with editorial decisions (e.g. I loved The Other but loathe BND) but I love the character. SM3, though, seemed to abandon all the things I liked about him. Spider-Man wasn't funny, the Venom character didn't have any of the pathos and schizoid behavior that defined him, Harry's motivation was nonsensical in the extreme (not to mention the butler thing), etc. To me, it just wasn't fun at all.

    The only thing that comes close to redeeming it was Sandman, but his origin (that unmonitored experiment) was just too silly to enjoy. Thankfully, it included his beautiful emergence scene, so I'll forgive that.

    I think one of the big reasons I didn't like Spiderman 3 was because Spiderman 2 was so much awesome. 3 would have probably been decent if it didn't have to live up to that one.

    The only thing I've wondered is what happened to his Spidey-sense. In the first one it was pretty obvious, but in the second and third it seems like anyone can sneak up on him.

    man i did not enjoy 3 as much as two but when I saw the makings of the 2 on 2 I got really excited and it paid off in spades

    I wasn't turned off by the way they portrayed the black suit at all, really. The thing that bothered me the most was that venom and sandman seemed very shoe horned as bad guys (especially venom), and also having a comic book esque retcon in a trilogy bugged me.

    Although it was an awesome way to explain what retcon was to the superhero class last summer

    Sandmans entire thing was pointless. It introduces his kid simply to make him sympathetic rather than a money-craving dick and then thats it, the rest of the movie is just him smashing shit and fighting with Spider-Man badly.

    His ressurection scene was good though.

    Other things Spider-Man 3 did right.

    The pie scene, awesome acting/expression from Osborn.

    The "I like being bad...it makes me happy"

    It just stood out to me as a pretty cool line, plus Venom seeemed pretty decent while fighting in the construction area but this is the same issue I had with Spider-Man 1. You have two fast people capable of swinging all over the city and fighting across rooftops, they could've been putting each other through walls and windows and generally tearing stuff up in an epic equal battle.

    And instead they're just fucking about in a single construction site, ONLY so that Peter can have some convenient metal about to clang together.

    When the cartoon version is doing the origin and defeat of the symbiote better than you, you're doing something wrong.

    I would've liked to see more of Harry fucking with Peters life to. That everything must go through MJ is the most cliche and bog-standard aspect of each film.

    How dare they make him anything more then a one dimensional cartoon villain!! Curse you Sam Rami and your subtext!! Curse you!!

    DW, seriously, what kind of bland ass obvious movies are you a fan of, anyway? Spider-Man 3 wasn't perfect by a long shot, but your complaints are like the ravings of a 13 year old kid or a crotchity old man. Nonsensical and, in some instances, just plain fucking wrong.

    They added subtext to a character. As opposed to, hey, I'm a giant sand guy, lets see if I can fill up a 90 minute movie by just being made of sand and then robbing a fucking armored car for some stupid reason. Because I know, if I turned into living sand, the first thing I'd do is rob an armored car...

    Man, that scene was running through my head for like a year later whenever I ate or did something so good.


    I liked the daughter if only because I'd just recently read the future Spider-man story where he had a daughter that could turn to concrete.

    not all subtext is good subtext

    his was vapid, cursory and ultimately pointless

    he wasn't a developed character, he was flat with a sticker that read "motivation: sick daughter"

    That slow-mo right before the explosion was kinda funny. Just seemed so randomly placed.

    If Imagi runs out of money, I will shed a thousand tears for them.

    Did you see their concept art for Gatchaman/G-Force/Battle of the Planets and Tetsujin 28/Gigantor?

    Fuck, man. Should those ever see the light of day, I will be first in line.

    I guess we're all going to have to go see Astro Boy 3 or 4 times in a row.

    I think another TMNT movie for them might be a pretty safe bet, though. Their first did better than expected, and a new one with shredder and an actual plot would probably be a shoe-in for funding from whoever owns the full rights.

    Oh yeah, it looks okay though I'm going to end up Tezuka Nerd Raging at it.

    But it doesn't change the fact that Imagi is about out of cash and if it doesn't do gangbusters at the box office they're going to be in serious trouble.

    NRAMA: On the film development front, how's it going with Imagi and WB on the sequel?

    PL: I'm not sure that we will be working with Imagi on the sequel -- I'd like to, but we're looking into other options. I can't really talk about it in detail, but there are several interested parties we're talking to. One of the things which seems to appeal to everyone is this idea of doing what people are calling a "hybrid" movie -- one where most of it will be live-action, but the Turtles would be very realistically rendered CGI characters. I think that could be, if done correctly, incredibly cool. One thing that I would love to see happen is to try to get Sarah Michelle Gellar and Chris Evans (who performed the voices of April O'Neil and Casey Jones in the 2007 computer-animated TMNT movie) to reprise those roles in a sequel... but as live-action versions of April and Casey. I think that would be wicked cool! As far as I know, at this point they have not been asked, and I have no idea if they would be interested in doing it. I can hope, though!

    Urghh. The good news is, it could possibly just be Peter Laird talking out of his ass.

    Robotech got wrangled up in a huge rights dispute; the same rights dispute that has prevented us from getting Macross 7, DYRL, Mac 0, and Mac F on DVD in the US.

    NGE was a pipe dream and will most likely never happen. That concept art from years ago was actually really treacherous and sneaky, as it was paid for by the US licensor of the series without any studio's interest, and with Gainax only being indifferent to it.

    Edit: Although there are the current NGE remake movies in Japan right now, which should start seeing US release at the end of the year.

    Hmm, I'm liking the Watchmen clips so far. If only they'd gotten a Veidt who looked a bit more the part, though... he's a little scrawny. I don't mind the accent, though. I don't know that it fits the character at all, but I didn't find it distracting. The rescue scene was pretty excellent, and the last one was just pretty short. Though seriously, slow-mo is being overused just a tad. It's a giant book, you don't need to slow down scenes, you need to pack even more in!
