Spider Man 3, the whole 2 years that this film has been done and reshot might have been better with the test audiences but still boring in most parts. The CGI work that sony does for these movies is great but like the last two spider man's not much in plot. This movie starts with Peter Parker going to ask Mary Jane to marry him. Mary Jane is in a broadway play but then loses the part because of bad reviews. Peter is at an all time high because he is going to get the key's to the city as Spider Man. (Look for Spider Man creator Stan Lee talking to Peter at Time Square) First Peter fights his best friend Harry Osborn (AKA Gobilin Jr) and Harry loses and then has amnesia. Then Spider man learns that his uncles killer is not the man he killed in Spider Man 1 but it is Flint Marko the sand man creature they fight and Spider man thinks he wins there as well. Then this goo from a meteor comes down to earth and attaches itself to Peter which helps him fight Osborn again and Flint Marko and turns him to evil. He resists and Eddie Brock another photographer for the Daily Bugle looses his job and then becomes evil Venom. The Sand Man and Venom capture Mary Jane and Peter and Osborn hook up to fight them. Venom is killed Goblin/Osborn is killed and Sand man is forgiven and Peter and Mary Jane dance lovely off the screen. The movie seemed to be based on Othello, Shakespeares ideas that a man at his high point then has something major happen looses everything then is gaining back then looses again but in Othello it stays that way, whereas Spider man actually goes back to normal but it leaves open the idea of Spider man 4. This franchise will stay especially with marketing but the movies are Blah. Well that is my first blockbuster for the summer. Look forward to Shrek 3, Simpsons, Live Free Die Hard, Harry Potter: Order of the Pheonix, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Ocean's Thirteen, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. So I will be at the theatre alot. Until then 2 more weeks of school to go.
