Yesterday I saw this movie. I should say I liked the movie overall. But I have some mixed feelings about the movie. I would like to wait before I post those feelings, otherwise it might be a spoiler!

The movie was really not at all intresting,the movie did not hold the viewers at times.


Thanks and Regards, Anand

I don't agree on point 2 of yours. With so many villains and lots of emotions running, holding the viewership was not a problem. But other things like Spider man himself becoming an emotional freak is what I didn't like.

Arrrggghhh!!! I absolutely loved the first two movies. And I had planned to see this one ASAP.

Unfortunately, due to many many reasons -- changing projects at work, friend's weddings and baby showers, etc. -- I don't see myself getting to this movie for a few more weeks...

Okay, I finally saw Spiderman 3 yesterday. It wasn't as good as the first two, but it was pretty good. Definitely worth buying when it comes out on DVD too.

This is not a spoiler, or at least I don't think it is, but just in case....

...

...

In the first twenty minutes or so, there is a scene where Peter drives up to Aunt May's apartment building, in his moter scooter. Well, that happens to be *my* apartment building !!

The production company blocked off parking on the street for two days. Bought in a ridiculous amount of equipment the night before. Shutdown the street itself for about six hours starting at around 8pm. Took more than 4 hours to prep. And did the actual filming at around 1am.

Or as I was told on the last part. I had an early flight the next morning, so missed the actual filming.

Anyway, total screen time. It looks like it was between 1 or 2 seconds! That was certainly a lot of people, equipment, and actual time, for so little screen time. Oh well.

My friend saw the movie and said it sucks. I liked the spider man movies 1 and 2 but I just cant digest Tobey Maguire playing spider man. He is just not the right guy to play the part. I dont know who else could play that part but he does not fit in there. Now the hero in 'Batman begins', he fit into the role pretty well and it was the best batman movie I have ever seen. I could watch it today and not sleep through the movie. I think the visual effects alone would woo me to buy the spider man 3 DVD.

Did you guys know that spidey 3 was directed by a new director.and not the one who directed the first two. and also the lead pair had their contracts only till the 3rd film. and they are not interested in any more sequels. so "IF" spidey 4 comes out. we might see some new faces.

oh well about the Spidey 3. saw the movie today. and i felt that the new director has tried a lot of things to make a big impression. the action,visuals,graphics was all great. but felt there was just too much going on in the movie.but I liked it none the less.

and yes even I agree that Tobey doesn't seem to be the perfect fit for the spidey role.but hes done justice to the character none the less. well at least with the spidey suit on

Really? I thought Sam Raimi directed all three movies. In fact... yup, just looked it up on IMDB.com... Sam Raimi did all three.

Spider man 1 was good. This one is a bit stretched, too many baddies, a confused and emotional hero, less stunts.

Tobey has brought out the human emotions well in his acting. But thats not the point. First of all I don't want my superhero to become embroiled in all this emotions. Just the jumping, swinging cartoonish character is what I want to see. Physically he a bit small and does not fit the superhero image.

Spiderman 1 and 2 were great. Looks like Spiderman-3 was made just for the sake of creating a sequel. Going by the quality of the previous two movies, this one certainly is a let down, atleast for me. In the end, i was left wondering who the hero was - Harry or Spiderman.
