My 12-Word Reviews for Spider-Man 3

“I am a comic geek. I want substance, too, not just CGI.”

“I wish and hope The Simpsons Movie will not be terribly disappointing.”

“Thank goodness for Bruce Campbell‘s cameo; the one part I truly enjoyed.”

“What the f—ing hell was that? Am I watching Saturday Night Fever?”

Check out the reviews from film critics I respect:

“an infantile lack of grace” from the New Yorker

Slant calls it “almost George Lucas bad.”

Filmthreat may have said that the movie is “bogged down by too much mediocrity” but there are saving graces.

Check out how I reacted to it here as recounted by my virtual girlfriend. Still, I am confident that this movie will just rake in the cash at the box office. I just wish someone paid for my ticket. My only sin is that I expected too much. I never learn.

  1. Now, now… it has always been the case in sequels. When they reach the 3rd movie, it goes ahhh… bad? You mentioned it yourself, X-Men 3 was as bad as this one. Now, we wait if The Pirates of the Caribean 3 would surpass it’s 1st 2 sequels, or better yet The Simpsons would be as enticing as it is in their TV series Ü

    But I’m glad I watched it with you… 😉

  2. Spiderman 2 is the apex of the 3 spidey films: tight story-telling, thoughtful character-development and alfred molina masterfully fused the pathos of greek tragedies into the soul of a quasimodo. his doc oc was as delicious as ramses in the ten commandments. i haven’t seen the third installment but it looks like a very crowded class picture of villains.

  3. grabe kahapon..hinde na kasi kami bumili ng advance tickets sa rockwell kasi plus P20 pa. so P180 na yun. kamusta naman yun diba.. too much na yun so naisip nalang namin ng family ko na punta na lng kame dun ng umaga. 10AM yung bukas ng mall.. naka rating kame dun ng 1030. habang nasa labas na kame ng mall.. napansin namin wala pang mga tao.. so akala namin sarado pa.. tapos nyung nasa parking na kame.. my ghad ang dami nang koste. so gulat kame. then nyung umakyat na kame sa mall. sobrang konti pa lang ng mga tao. nahihiya nga ako kasi ako nag pilit sa family ko na agahan namin yung punta tapos pag punta namin dun halos wala pang tao tapos sarado pa yung mga stores. mejo madilim pa nyun kasi sarado pa yung mga ibang ilaw. so habang nag lalakad na kame papunta sa cinema.. nagtataka ako kasi ang dami nang cars dun sa parking pero wala namang ka tao tao sa mall. then nyung nakapunta na kame sa floor ng cinema. my ghad! nandun lahat ng tao! as in ang haba ng pila! umabot na dun sa may arcade. kamusta naman yun diba. then pumila na agad kame. nakakainis kasi yung mga iba kung bumili more than 10 tickets na kasi binibilihan na nila yung mga ibang friends nila na balak din manood that day (overheard sa ibang mga nakapila dun hehe). anyway.. 1 hour kameng nakapila dun. nakikita namin sa monitor na unti unti nang nawawala yung mga (good) seats. so mejo ninenerbyos na kame. anyway..good thing na lang nakuha namin yung last (5)seats na ok talaga. after lunch halos wala na talagang natira na seats.

    anyhoo..for me. spiderman2 is still my fave. SM3 is kinda cheesy na kasi for me. heavy drama. too much action. bleh. also too many annoying extras who cant act kaya nakakainis din.

    [SPOLIER ALERT]
    the reaction of eddie and the father (whatsisname?)when they found out that that trying-hard model girl was about to fall was so unbelievable. para bang wala lang sa kanila.

    oh yeah i also remember the scene wherein peter was sleeping then the symbiote came to him. sobrang “proper” naman nya matulog. talagang sobrang flat ng paghiga nya tapos yung two hands nya nasa both sides pa. ganun ba talaga sya CASUALLY matulog? hahaha. and oh yeah ang perfect pa ng hair nya yung natutulog na sya LOL

    also..how did a crane got on the top of a building? I know it’s crazy for me to mind that, but I was just bothered how. mejo gumulo yung bangs ko sa kakaisip kung pano talaga napunta sa taas yun ah.

    i dont know maybe its just me kasi masyado akong naexcite but the movie is just kinda boring. the fight scene of SM and doc oct is still the best.

    PS: i still love his costume though 😀

  4. “also..how did a crane got on the top of a building? I know it’s crazy for me to mind that, but I was just bothered how. mejo gumulo yung bangs ko sa kakaisip kung pano talaga napunta sa taas yun ah.” – i asked my arch. friend about this. possible pala talaga. hahaha!

  5. mother! i almost fell asleep especially since we decided to catch the last showing! kalurkey. maganda pa ang heroes….na naka-dvd sunud-sunod panuorin. hahahaha!

  6. 40 minutes pa lang ng Spiderman 3 gusto ko na lumabas ng sinehan at matulog na lang sa bahay. Pilit ko man na isipin na maganda yung movie kaso ayaw talaga eh, hindi ko madaya ang sarili ko, ang shuwanget, absolutely disappointing.
