There are scenes where Andrew Garfield's hair looks totally like something James Franco would rock.

It's called "Spidey-mask hair." or "web-head," if you're punny.

The second movie featured one of my favorite movie shortcut glosses, wherein Dr. Octopus essentially mail orders the components to build a nuclear fusion generator or whatever to be delivered to his secret warehouse in Brooklyn. I genuinely love how comic books never get into where these arch villains and heroes get the raw materials to build their bases, palaces, equipment, etc.

Batman: Logistics & Fulfillment a surprisingly low grosser at the box office.

i love the large auns pictures! (Phil D.), Friday, 4 May 2012 13:51 (1 year ago) Permalink

But those who saw it loved it.

The director talks about the trailer. A lot.

Spidey angsting over his parents doesn't sound particularly interesting to me.

AS IF Andrew Garfield's crying face could be anywhere near as amazing as Dawson's.

1 month passes...

Frankly, this seems more entertaining.

I've learned not to judge movies simply by their trailers, but everything I've seen from this reboot looks absolutely like style over substance (and, frankly, stupid).

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 16:49 (1 year ago) Permalink

It's going to make a ton of money regardless of what I think, but it does look rather heartless and slick. The whole idea of a reboot is so ridiculous when there really isn't much new being added to the story.

false binary, Raimi Spidey was pretty stylish. i don't even know what a "substantial" Spider-Man movie would look like but i'm pretty sure i don't wanna see it.

some dude, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 16:56 (1 year ago) Permalink

Any superhero film is going to be stylish, yes, but action clips from this new one closer resemble a video game than anything in a real world setting.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 16:59 (1 year ago) Permalink

There was a humility/humanity about the first Raimi Spider-man film (and maybe the others) that doesn't appear present anywhere in this one.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:00 (1 year ago) Permalink

this looks to me to be the exact same movie as the first Raimi Spiderman with a prettier Peter Parker

I see you, Pineapple Teef (DJP), Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:01 (1 year ago) Permalink

He looks like a special needs David Tennant.

since you already said "I've learned not to judge movies simply by their trailers" i'm not gonna give you the same lecture i gave s1ocki when he whined that the Batman trailer had montages of big setpieces instead of character moments ;)

also it's not like i'm going to bat for this bullshit movie, DJP otm

some dude, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:02 (1 year ago) Permalink

I'm not as high on the Nolan Batman films as everyone else is. I thought Ledger's "Joker" was ALL-TIME as a complex villain, but the first film and everything else about the second film that wasn't Heath Ledger-related never pulled me in.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:05 (1 year ago) Permalink

if anything, the trailers make me think they got a better handle on the Spidey quips this time around

I see you, Pineapple Teef (DJP), Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:11 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah true. i mean they got emma stone in it so maybe the truth is this is a more overtly comedic spider-man movie.

some dude, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:13 (1 year ago) Permalink

man I want to talk about that but I am afraid of using my comic book knowledge to accidentally spoil this movie

what I will say is that I wouldn't be at all surprised if this movie wasn't overtly comic

I see you, Pineapple Teef (DJP), Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:16 (1 year ago) Permalink

No way does gwen bite it in the first movie. they're gonna build up to that imo, if it happens at all

Black_vegeta (Hungry4Ass), Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:17 (1 year ago) Permalink

The next movie will be about her secret affair with the Green Goblin.

I found him in a Bon Ton ad (Nicole), Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:28 (1 year ago) Permalink

the thing that always cracks me up when i see the trailer for this is the shot of peter parker doing sick skateboard tricks. hes brooding, hes hunky, he skates in a hoodie/blazer combo!

Black_vegeta (Hungry4Ass), Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:31 (1 year ago) Permalink

lol at djp flexing his special comic book insider knowledge that wow gwen stacy dies in the comix

some dude, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:33 (1 year ago) Permalink

look, it was just revealed today that like half of ILX had never seen "I am curious (black)!" before, I'm not assuming anything anymore

I see you, Pineapple Teef (DJP), Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:38 (1 year ago) Permalink

haha true

some dude, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:39 (1 year ago) Permalink

Not having read the comics, I had to brush up quickly on who Gwen was in relation to Peter Parker and Mary Jane. Apparently her death was a big deal? I guess so.

But yeah, it would be dumb to kill her in the first film.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:42 (1 year ago) Permalink

i can believe andrew garfield and emma stone pull off affects that tobey maguire and kirsten dunst didn't, but as a die-hard Spidey 3 defender I'm so sick of "well at least this doesn't have a dance sequence" bullshit the new movie can eat a dick regardless.

da croupier, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:54 (1 year ago) Permalink

Peter Parker's a square dork with superhuman agility of course when he goes evil he turns into a dancing fool, GAHHHHHH DAMN YOUR SMALL MINDS

da croupier, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:54 (1 year ago) Permalink

I didn't think Spider-man 3 was particularly bad, but I thought there was just too much going on and it got confusing/laborious.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:56 (1 year ago) Permalink

The Venom storyline was forced on Raimi by Sony, so it seems unfair that he gets the blame for that.

I found him in a Bon Ton ad (Nicole), Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:57 (1 year ago) Permalink

confusing, maybe. but laborious? i'll play piano obnoxiously over that claim.

da croupier, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:59 (1 year ago) Permalink

i didnt have a problem with the dancing or any of the goofy stuff, its just a crummy movie because it doesnt really work dramatically

Black_vegeta (Hungry4Ass), Tuesday, 3 July 2012 18:00 (1 year ago) Permalink

i think the difference in quality between the 3 raimi flicks is vastly overstated, obviously they're pretty different movies in some ways but as far as actual craft or enjoyment they're even steven imo

some dude, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 18:04 (1 year ago) Permalink

but laborious? i'll play piano obnoxiously over that claim.

I probably used that term incorrectly. What I meant to say is that it was a lot more work than the other films for me to keep up with what was happening.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 18:06 (1 year ago) Permalink

I can't think of a scene as tonally different from the rest of the movie in the first two as the Parker shuffle was in the third

I see you, Pineapple Teef (DJP), Tuesday, 3 July 2012 18:06 (1 year ago) Permalink

there were some pretty broad cartoony moments throughout the series

some dude, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 18:16 (1 year ago) Permalink

sure, but right now without the movies in front of me to reference I can't remember a scene that felt like it was shoehorned in from a completely different movie operating under a completely different reality

I see you, Pineapple Teef (DJP), Tuesday, 3 July 2012 18:23 (1 year ago) Permalink

It was like they stitched in a scene from The Mask.

polyphonic, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 18:45 (1 year ago) Permalink

i say bah to your tonal consistency bah

da croupier, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 19:08 (1 year ago) Permalink

don't worry though, you'll never see something that playful in a superhero movie again

da croupier, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 19:09 (1 year ago) Permalink

ha ok that's not true if whedon hangs around but oh how you jackals will turn on him

da croupier, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 19:10 (1 year ago) Permalink

it would be funny if he decided to follow-up the Buffy musical episode in the middle of The Avengers 2

some dude, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 19:12 (1 year ago) Permalink

You know that would be my dream movie.
