"Spider-Man 3" starts off the summer box office sizzling, earning $148M this weekend.
It needs to since it cost over a half billion to make.
Spiderman 4 the billion dollar movie or blunder? (sic)
I helped out on that record breaking weekend...and the movie ain't all that. Overly cheesy at times and very, very predictable! Even the guest cam shot w/ Stan Lee was pretty poor. I was very let down...I mean like Fantastic Four/Ghost Rider performance level kinda let down.
It has special effects..and that is about it. Venom was the coolest thing going...and he doesnt really show up until about ohh...the last 15 min of the movie.
I'm waiting on the DVD.
I only wanted to see Venom and this movie kinda kills that.
I saw GR but off a pirated copy. I'm glad I didn't pay for that.
It's about 1 step above Elektra..which was 1 step above CatWoman.
I would say FF was a bit better then GR but not by much.
I guess Sony columbia is all smile today, and it's gonna help blu-ray too when it's out on Blu-ray.
Unless this has turned into N4MovieWatchers I have no idea how this got approved.
but you are totally right. Unless this talks about the video game tie in...which I dont' think it does...it really isnt gaming news. It's about Sony...but that is about it...and that is a stretch for this site.
I agree, it's very borderline that so much news come out about Blu-ray vs HD-dvd but both consoles use them. As far as the box office releases of the movie industry getting approved, well I guess it's time we start warming up our reviews of films if this keeps up. Note if you are interested in movies, www.imdb.com is a great site for all movie information not www.n4g.com
THIS IS ALREADY POSTED.
so to sum it up, this has nothing to do with gaming or tech, neither did the first article, and it has now been approved as news twice.
and people wonder why the quality of this place is going down...clearly some people are contributors that should not be.
part 2 was better...
I believed in all the hype and I had high expectations, but this movie was not as good as I thought.
I guess Sony is taking their over hyping methods of the PS3 into their movies now too LOL...
Anyway I still like the Spider-Man series but I think they could have made this movie much better.
Venom is Spider-Mans hardest foe and he is in the movie like 15 mins.
BUT the way they did Venom was SICK like the early 90's cartoon show, I loved that part.
Why are we talking about how well a movie did at the box office. Are movies something that's part of the industry. I guess, being that it's entertainment, but then again so is the NBA playoffs and other events. Or is this being mention simply because SONY is the movie house that produced it.
Or another way to ask would be, would we have news on this site talking about how much spiderman made this weekend if it have been produced by Paramount Pictures?
Well Sony owns movie studios and I guarantee they will be getting paid for the success of the movie which translates into profit as a company. Which will effect the games division in some way and the bluray is on the way. It's relevant. ...And Boink I saw that article but that was for one day not the whole weekend. I see a post earlier Microsoft wants to buy yahoo for 50 billion. What's that got to do with games? If it was just about games, then MS or Sony wouldn't be fighting for yor livingroom.
this site is about games and TECH, and MS buying yahoo would be HUGE in the tech field.
This is not a MOVIE NEWS SITE. don't post movie news here.
Quit trying to tie this to being good news for the ps3 in some obscure way. simply put, spiderman 3 movie earning are not related to gaming or technology, so it does not belong here.
I agree 100% boink! Nothing else to be said.
i thought the SM2 was better
SM3 was good but just not that great
it felt like a 1.5 ....
same from lots of people. A lot of people were disappointed. Not a lot of PART 3 out of a series have been so GREAT, unless you can name a few. This film was hyped with a lot of expectations. While a decent movie form what I hear, but the Commercials/Trailers probably ruined it. They always show you all the good parts. I'll probably watch it when I get home.
I did like "Return of the King" tho.
VENOM & CARNAGE HEHE! BLOOD BATH BATTLE!
They ruined Venom, and they made Peter Parker an Emo kid. The whole movie seemed kind of rushed, and poorly written. One highly anticipated movie down...I hope Pirates makes for a better 3'quel.
fanboys will say nythin bad bout sony even if its such a great film as spiderman.
so some of you guys are even talking crapp about spiderman huh. suck nutts bastars
I loved the first two spidermans but this one was horrible. Kind of like pirates 2 and xmen 3.
What I first noticed was the horrible cgi battles that'll be outdated in months. Also the scripting and scenes were cheesy to the core, like xmen 3. I really wanted this movie to be better.
Well I have seen this movie and I was not impressed. It struggles to find an identity. It tries to be kid friendly with one liners and then tries to become very dark and suspenseful.
The intro started off on an ok note, but there are some awful CGI scenes at parts which I considered a surprise since the movie's budget came in a whopping $258 million dollars. As the movie progresses there are some cheesy scenes, which were blown out and don't necessarily define the character that is spiderman. The movie is predictable towards the end.
I am not saying this is the worst movie I have ever seen, but this movie does not go with the same movie direction as the past two films. I even wondered if the movie had the same director. The movie is entertaining and fun at times, but could have been a lot better if the editor were to have cut a movie which I seemed way too long.
If you want to see a good comic hero movie, watch Batman Begins
However, the funny thing is that 4 days ago I would have been singing exactly the same praises about Spider-Man- I mean c'mon the first two were good, right. Only that Spiderman 3 really, really sucked big time. I mean i walked out the theatre feeling like I had just stepped out of a somewhat laughable nightmare: dazed, confused, and mad as hell that i just wasted $10 bucks (not that $10 bucks is alot) on some cheesy, flag-kissing [email protected]
I haven't watched it yet, and I don't think I'll bother. I liked Spiderman, was slightly dissappointed with Spiderman 2 (but still a good film). After seeing some of the recent trailers of Spiderman 3, I just realised, that it isn't going to be all that, so I decided to pass. My brother watched it and thinks it's sh!t, so I'll take his word for it.
IMO they should have used only one villain, ( besides the Goblin ) that being Venom.
I'm sorry, but Spider-man 3 was amazing! I've seen it twice. Most people hated it because of the cheesy moments and everything, but I loved it. The singing and dancing was less than one minutes of the movie, i swear. You guys took the bad aspects of the film and made them worse.
Things to change -
-Give Sandman his own movie...he was an emotionally troubled man...and they needed to delv into that a lot more
-Give Venom his own movie...still love Topher Grace though. That was his personality from the comics. I would've had Venom be stronger too. Not more muscular, but not THAT easily taken down.
-NO DANNY ELFMAN FOR THE SOUNDTRACK!!! I love the man, but this is NOT his style of film. Leaven the Tim Burtonesque stuff to TIM BURTON!!!
-Make Spider-man MORE evil when he gets the venom suit. Possibly like Vergil from DMC3. The emo thing just made everyone laugh...
-KILL JAMES FRANCO!!! That man can NOT act to save his life! Everyone else is perfect for their role.
-British accented news reports...NO!
-Poor acting British accented news reporters...NO!
-The storyline felt confined, like there was nothing else going on but what was happening to Peter. They may have been going for this, but it's still not a good idea. Even the frickin' POKEMON movies don't do that.
-It lacked the emotion of the first movie...and the dialogue. That scene in the first movie between Green Goblin and Spider-man was one of the best I've ever seen.
-No willem dufoe!!!
Things to love:
-Bruce Campbell's back as a FRENCH WAITER!!! That was awesome! I was so glad he got a bigger part in this one.
-Peter's convo's with Aunt Mae were very well done and she's a great actress
-Thomas Hayden Church's acting brought the lack of emotion in the writing to greater depths than Sam Raimi had expected...I'm sure.
-SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >James Franco dies!
-The fighting scenes were amazingly choreographed
-Bryce Dallas Howard...nuff said
-It felt like the comic books...which was great for a lot of comic fans. Stan Lee obviously had more involvement in this one than the other two.
-Orlando Bloom's not in it!
Oh, and to whoever said PotC2 sucked...CAN SUCK A DEUSCHE!!! That movie was so freakin' amazing dude. That's like saying Lord of the Rings isn't as good as Harry Potter! We all blatently KNOW that the second movie was better than the first. More fighting, better storyline, it just felt A LOT MORE EPIC!!! That's what we want!
Oh, and Halo sux...
i have seen it, its average, pirtates 3 will blow it away
