Okay, so maybe that’s just what I call it in my head… Clearly I’m referring to the latest iteration in the Spider-Man franchise. I saw it last week, and it was pretty much what I expected. Toby Maguire still can’t really act, but I guess the movie on the whole is okay – though could be cut in length by a good 30 minutes.
The bad guys were adequate. Bad guys who are normal flawed people, but with super powers, are interesting. Though I reckon the movie could have done without the Staypuffed Sand Man. Without wanting to provide too much in the way of a spoiler, that thing with the pipes to get Venom sucked.
The dancing, which started off being weird and creepy, quickly progressed to weird and creepy and funny. But the emo? This I didn’t like. Surely they could have expressed Peter’s personality changes some other way than with eyeliner and an emo fringe.
