I should have blogged this earlier but Spiderman 3 may be the worst super-hero movie I have seen (although the five minutes I watched of Catwomen were painful, it was only 5 minutes). The movie dragged horribly in the middle and seemed cluttered at times (and I like complex story lines). There were some fun scenes (JJJ getting harassed by his secretary) and the final battle scene was okay but the rest bored me. Not nearly as good as the first two.
As the Washington Post said
In an apparent effort to put a stake in the heart of the franchise that
threatens to define his career, director Sam Raimi has delivered an overlong,
visually incoherent, mean-spirited and often just plain awful “Spider-Man 3,” a
tangled web of special-effects overkill and self-indulgence that all but
destroys the joy and goodwill created by the first two movies.
Of course the reason I saw it again was for Mark who turned seven yesterday but even he was bored in the middle of it. The movie did provoke some excellent post-movie debate like which Spiderman would get more candy at Halloween. I say evil Spidey. Of course while I like the big screen and the Galaxy is a great theatre. Here is the cost breakdown.
Parking = Free (we lucked out)
Admission for two adults and two kids = $35
A large popcorn, two regular drinks, two small drinks, and a small candy = $25
Grand Total = $60
I may never go a movie again.
