    Anyone seen it yet? I saw it yesterday. Although I'm a big Spidey fan (and comics generally), I'm not potty on the (now) trilogy of films.

    I thought this was good, and well worth seeing in the cinema, but couldnt describe it as great.

    Spoiler if you've not seen;

    The other thing, the only other forum I use has a Spider-Man thread, and it's been dominated with chat about Venom for months, and he turned up about 15 minutes from the end!

    Good but not great.

    The "singing" parts were laughable.

    having gwen stacy in the movie felt unnecessary.

    venom didn't have his long slimy tongue.

    and why did venom keep retracting his mask when he would talk?! i paid to see venom!! not more toper grace!!!

    I thought Gwen was ok, I didnt think she especially out of place (considering it's a movie and they're going to play with the actual story a bit).

    I thought Venom was a disappointment. Both the screen time and lack of similarity to the image you've got of him (both on the page and in your mind).

    I felt the same about this one as I did about the other 2; watchable but flawed. They're enjoyable enough on the big screen, but you won't exactly be waiting impatiently for DVD releases.......

    Leaving aside all considerations of whether it fit with comic continuity, I can't figure out if they actually had too many elements in the plot, or if it's my own expectations for a more straightforward narrative that caused me some problems with the film. It felt the whole time like the thing was just bogged down under the weight of its introductions, but in the end, it did all come together. You needed Gwen for MJ and Toper Grace's turn against Peter. Ya needed a proper introduction to Grace-before-Venom to underline why Venom would've chosen MJ as the target for the final battle. You needed two villains becaus you needed a credible threat that Peter alone couldn't have handled. And all the plotlines that have developed over the trilogy were resolved satisfactorily in and of themselves. But, and I really can't quite put my finger on it, it seems after one viewing to be a film that did right by all its individual plot lines, and that the whole worked logically—but it still kept me looking at my watch. It honestly felt like it lasted four hours. Maybe it's as simple as the stakes not being high enough in the final battle. Instead of it being a villain's scheme that would've put the whole of New York at risk, it was more a couple of guys hatching a plot to kick the crap outta Spidey. At the end of the day, three people died to save one person's life, which seems kinda hollow, somehow. I think probably my appreciation of the film will grow on repeat viewings, now that I kinda know what it is, but there's no doubt it's not quite the Oscar®-winner the last film was.

    It was still hardly the kinda crap most superhero movies are. Somehow, though, I think the natural structure of all the story they wanted to ell was a four-act narrative, but they only contractually had their actors down for three. So we ended up with a story that was three-and-a-half acts long.

    There are some funny YouTube videos spoofing the Get a Mac ads... "I'm a Marvel,.. and I'm a DC" starring Spiderman and Superman. They are pretty funny.

    That's certainly news! Spidey 4 is already being heavily discussed, but no more than that.

    I thought that too! It's not that it's a bad film, and I'm a big Spidey fan (and comics generally), but I was actually pleased when this was over.

    They're good. Funny enough, the other message board I go on (BatmanYTB.com), we were chatting about those the other day. & I was searching for some JL stuff on YouTube last night and I found this; this is funny....

    heres some ineresting news/rumor

    from freezedriedmovies.com

    When Spider-Man 3 was being prepped Sam Raimi and Columbia Pictures tried to hold the announcement of Venom for as long as they possibly could... confirming the news just before Comic Con in July of 2006. But here we are, the day Spider-Man 3 hits theaters, and your good pal here has the skinny on who you will see in Spider-Man 4 - with or without Sam Raimi (hater of all things symbiotic).

    Before I hit you with the news, let me make it clear that we got this news from a 100% reliable source working on the film. He's the one who told us Venom was the villain in Spidey 3 and nobody believed us. So here you have it, the biggest announcement of 2008... NOW!

    Our regular scooper tells FreezeDriedMovies that plans are underway for Spider-Man 4, which were (obviously) set up in the third film. In the third entry, Dr. Curt Connors (played by Dylan Baker) looks at a piece of symbiote with Peter Parker. The movie then travels along it's path without another mention of that "piece" of symbiote. This is the set up for Spider-Man 4 where that small piece of alien symbiote becomes CARNAGE. Yes Cletus Kasady is coming to the big screen, one of Spider-Man most horrifying and evil villains. Not only with Parker have to deal with the red lean mean killing machine, but Connors is set to become the long awaited LIZARD! these two villains have all been CONFIRMED for Spider-Man 4. There is talk of the Black Cat making her first appearance, but that's all but official.

    So there you have it. Spider-Man, The Lizard, Carnage... and hopefully NO Sam Raimi. Avi Arad, please find someone who CARES what the fans think!
