Yeah, yeah... Another review from me, The Annoyed Cockroach. Well, half of it. Me, as in Paul.

So I went to see the movie today. I must admit, I had my doubts. Frankly, I haven't enjoyed a comic-book adaptation movie since X-Men. And Spider-Man is my all time favourite superhero, so I was fearful of seeing him slandered on the big screen.

By the end of the first ten minutes, my fears had dissapeared. The movie remained so true to the comic books it was amazing. Tobey Maguire makes for an excellent Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Come to think of it, all the casting was done superbly.

The costumes were great. Spidey's suit was an amazing thing to see, and the Green Goblin's (admittedly very cartoony) outfit worked rather well.

The plot kept me engrossed from beginning to end, and frankly, I was giddy throughout the whole thing. I love Spider-Man. Seeing him on the big screen, and seeing him so very well done made the experience even better.

So go see it. Now! Hurry!

Hear, hear. Excellent movie. I'm even recommending it to my wife, who doesn't like comic-book movies. Good pacing: never felt dragged-out; never felt rushed. The screenwrite for "Pearl Harbor" might want to watch this movie to see how to mix a love story and an action story in the same movie.

While I'd be interested in seeing it, I'm also curious to know about its pros or cons for a date. Yes, I'm desperate. But perhaps Star Wars II will be good for this, after all, I'm probably not going to like the movie, so I ought to get something for my US$14 ($7x2, of course - you think I wouldn't pay for hers?)

Well, i went to see the movie saturday morning, and i thought it was a great movie. Mary Jane look horrible with that red hair. It just did not look good on her. the best part was the very very end. Peter shows a great amount of charter and honor though out the movie. I think they did a very good job of building them up. There was a great amount of depth to them. I am sure they will make at least two move spider-man movies, i just hope they are as good as the first, if not better.

I thought it was a fine movie and really captured the essence of the comics ... except for one or two items:

1. Them damn web-shooters! Okay, I understand how friggin' unlikely it would be for a high school student, even one as smart as P.P., to invent an adhesive that would stump 3M ... and, okay, it was always sorta pissy that the web-shooters (as well as the belt that held the extra cartridges, his special camera, and his combination flashlight/Spider Signal) were never noticeable under his skin-tight underoos ... but the organic shooters are simply not reasonable!

Mutated spinnerets that can shoot strands of webbing? Hard enough to shoot upwards against gravity a couple of fifty feet, or about a city block distant?

And just how much of that organic web can Peter generate, anyway?!? I kept expecting the poor guy to pass out or something. I mean, if one was to take the sum total of all the webbing he used just in that damn dash after Uncle Ben's killer, he must have lost some serious weight in just a few minutes!

2. His trademark banter was sadly lacking. One of the trademarks of a Spider-Man fight was the fact that he's always a smart-ass motor mouth. Okay, the armor car hi-jack fight sequence sorta shows a physical version of this, but I still missed it.

Other than these items, I really enjoyed the movie and look forward to them ruining it all in a few sequels.

Yeah, I missed the banter too. The only examples were when he talked to Jameson before the Green Goblin knocked him out. "Hey, Mom and Dad are talking tright now", and his comment to Bone Saw "Nice costume. Did your boyfriend make it for you?"

Other than those, I think there were no witty Spidey quotes.

I only have one problem with the movie, the green goblin costume. During one of the fight scenes, I almost thought I was watching the power rangers. The mask needs some serious work. I kept waiting for the "go go power rangers" song to start in. The rest of the movie was great...........Z

Maybe the banter will be added in "Spiderman II: The Studio Strikes Cash"

Overall, I was impressed...This was more like a living comic-book than most of the previous attempts. I really resented Batman running around in 40 or so pounds of body armor, being semi-bulletproof and being dependent on gadgets instead of himself. Spiderman was depicted moving EXACTLY the way he has been in the comic books.

Am I the only one thinking that after living next door to each other for at least ten years that after at least ten years, they'd have had some kind of relationship? It was like they never spoken to each other until the museum trip or the cafeteria incident. Sorry, folks, there seems to be no history of interaction from the last decade, which really doesn't make any sense.

The organic webshooters, I feel, overcame a few plot obstacles; I don't object to them. It keeps the movie from bogging down on technical details. I'm willing to overlook a few things like physical regeneration of web-spinners to be thankful they didn't try to include that chameleon-like power that was forshadowed. Besides, no one seems to consider organic-mass intake when the wounded creature regrows limbs.

It's worth seeing...yes, it might even be a date movie.

See it and tell us what you think!

exactly how many comic book adaptations have you seen to film that were made since X-Men? There aren't THAT many, since most, the first Blade, all the Superman movies, all the Batman movies, and several others are from BEFORE x-men. So what movies are you talking about? Blade 2... and...

Well... After Batman Returns, the whole franchise went downhill. I never could get into any of the Superman movies (Probably because of the fact that those are some old movies...), I didn't like Mystery Men (a comic book, if I'm not mistaken).

Yeah, it's true that not many comics go to the big screen. Spawn... wasn't bad, but I didn't really enjoy it.

I'm just glad that some jerk in Hollywood didn't mess up my Spidey.

cockroach, yes, Mystery Men was a comic, loved it.

and you dont' know HALF of the crap that was produced, Marvel has been especially poor (direct to video Punisher, Captain America, and Fantastic Four), but DC has had some flops: the third and fourth installments in both the Batman AND Superman franchises were awful, and there was that god-awful Meteor Man (ick!)

Actually, I don't believe that Spider-Man will beat either of those three for total revenue. But Since I liked all but one (you can guess), I don't have a problem with that. Spidey's alread done darn well, we'll leave it at that.

You are right it won't beat total revenues. It is just that finally the studios have stopped delaying the global release until after the american release. Most movies will have bigger opening weekends now.

Star Wars will not make as much money as Spiderman on the opening weekend, simply because SW will be shown at fewer theaters. Remember, this is the digital feed showing. Not as many theatres have the equipment to receive this, so the actual, physical film distribution (if there is one, I'm not sure how this is going out) will go to the secondary markets.

If you're in the sticks, it will take longer for it to get to you.
Don't be disappointed by the opening numbers.

Uhh, I could be wrong but aren't there only 19 theaters out of the 3000 that are going to be showing the digital version? "Will the 'Star Wars' digital gamble pay off?"

I just saw it, and I loved it! More depth than your average superhero movie. But why did they wait til the credits were almost over to start the theme song? Most of the people had already left the theater, so what's the point?It would have been more effective during the movie cause it's a powerful song.There's a great soundtrack out, but the only song you hear in the movie is Macy Gray. I guess the powers that be thought they could sell it anyway.

Personally, I rather enjoyed the musical score that was written for the movie better than any pop rock that some crappy band cranked out for it, no matter how "powerful" the song is. Powerfully crappy!

Heh... I'm such a musical bigot.

I actually didn't see the movie because of Kirby's reason: it looked cheezy. Plus, I don't like all that kissing romance fluffiness.

But I took one of those little dinky quizzes in a magazine I have. The end result was supposed to tell you which guy was more your 'hero': Fred Jones (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), or Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire). Some of the question's end results were somewhat obvious, though.

1.) You walk into a huge party at your friend's house and your attention is immediately drawn to:

(a) The smiley stud out on the deck w/ 3 girls hanging on each arm

(b) The sullen-looking guy on the sofa. He's wearing a leather jacket even though it's 85 degrees out.

(c) The adorable awkward boy standing next to the wall. He's clearly here only because someone thought it would be funny to see if he actually showed up.

2.) What's on your must-have list for a potential bf?

(a) A quiet, studious manner - with a little mysteriousness mixed in. Where does he go when he leaves the library?

(b) Anything that will make your mom cringe. Rebellious! Risky! Raucous!

(c) A little like class president. You're drawn to the magnetic guys - smart, smooth, and sought-after.


3.) What's your favorite way to get around?

(a) By car: for example, a colorful van.

(b) By airplane: You love to fly.

(c) On foot: You like to stretch your legs and keep in shape.


4.) Your ideal date is:

(a) an afternoon at the Museum of Natural History, followed by coffee at the neighborhood bookstore.

(b) a few slices of pizza and an intense round of Lazer Tag.

(c) exploring an old house that's supposed to be haunted.


- Just a few of the questions (of course the ones in bold are mine). In the end, my score was 19: the perfect score for Spider-Man! HA! The survey thingy said that I liked I like mysterious guys. They don't have much time for a social life, but if I'm one of those people who'd rather curl up and watch a movie than hit the bit Friday night party (which I am), this is my type of man . Also, it noted that guys like these might need a girl who's a bit more outgoing...I'm sure I could accomplish that.

"He might jerk off midkiss without an explanation, or cancel a date without notice - but how great would it be to have a guy who'd do anything to save you?"

Yay...I like that

I loved Spiderman. I saw it opening day but haven't gotten around to put my 2c up here yet. I know there are differances between the comic and the movie but it is the heart that counts and there realy wasn't changed. I think it would be a great date movie. I think for a date unless she is a SW freak like many girls are I would say go to Spidey instead. I felt that SW II was kind of a downer except for the yoda scenes. Especialy since we now know that he doesn't realy need the cane. Spiderman I think will probably make as much as SWAotC and definatly way more than Harry Potter and Titanic. It has much staying power for a movie and tons of people will buy it on DVD when it is released. Maybe they will put in the Twin Towers footage that they produced and were asked to put in and take out and put in and... Well all in all I loved the movie and thought that it ranked about a 9.2 while star wars ranked a 9.4. (BTW 9.5 is the highest I have ever given out and only a couple above a 8.5.)

Actually, the scene that particular bit of text refers to would be more of an exit stage up, but that's not funny, crude or witty so I'm going to go with my cheerfully intentional misinterpretation (which is why there's a winking smiley on the other post) and continue to laugh at the unfortunate choice of wording in the magazine quiz that Twinkle Toes quoted from.
