    But seriously, did you actually see this somehow, or are you basing it on the preview?

    And — what’s with this new cut of Spider-man 2 with like 12 mins of extra footage? You know what’s in that footage?

    It came out here on May 1st, and I saw it on May 1st at 12:30am. It’s a good movie, perfectly in line with the others. You’ll know what I’m talking about here when you see it.

    I read something about that Spider-Man 2.1 shit somewhere, but where was it… Oh yeah. It was here. Apparently, it ain’t much worth seeing.

    And I was being serious about the emoticon thing. You know how I feel about that crap.

    What’s with the extreme hate-on for emoticons?

    Okay — saw this on the weekend. As for your review — it was one scene that lasted like 1.5 secs! No different from the closing shot of the 1st one. I don’t know why you decided to focus on that.

    Maybe because the movie sucked . . ?

    All three of the movies had their flapping flag moments, I just thought this one’s was the most ridiculous of all, just amazingly, profoundly out-of-place while the other two’s were only really out-of-place.

    And the movie hardly sucked. Too much going on, a couple of short-changed badguys, an expository butler, but it made up for it with great action and some goofy fun comic scenes. It’s on par with the others.

    Okay, you’re right about the flag scene, but I would say this is definitely the weakest of the three. The comedic bits were entirely out of place and distracting, and there was way too much focus on PP/MJ’s love life.

    For what it’s worth (and I know it’s not much), I enjoyed it. Maybe a bit unfocused, but enjoyable none the less. Then again, the Spidey films as a genre don’t really do it for me. Just a decent popcorn flick in my books. The music was really good though – actions scenes set to jazz are a fav.

    I would agree Beal. It felt a bit bloated. And I would also agree with James about some of the comedy – there was just too much of it. The ‘strutting’ Peter Parker, while funny at first, just went on for so bloody long.

    And I actually didn’t think the climax was all that great, or original. And yeah, it tended to suffer from the Batman syndrome of too many villains.

    I still enjoyed it though, and it certainly didn’t disappoint like X-Men 3. Overall, it’s a pretty strong trilogy of films.

    X-Men 3 was better than this.
