Was it a Spiderman movie, or was it just for fun


Hearing that Spiderman 3 was coming out was probably one of the most exciting times that I can remember, like everybody else, who was going to be the villain. I honestly wasn't kinda excited when I thought it was just the Sandman, because he wasn't Spidermans top 5 villains, infact, he was more like between a goodguy and a badguy. But when I heard Venom was coming out, holy crap, I was so excited that I nearly S*** pants when I found out it wasn't a rumor, but a fact.  
I was like Venom, oh s*** im going to see Venom, hell yeah im going to finally see Venom. 
Believe or not, I even wore my Venom T-shirt when I saw the movie.  
But when I found myself leaving the theater, boy,was I disappointed. Out of all the three Spiderman movies, this was probably the worst. Sam Riami made Spiderman movies go from being awesome as hell to a final film that mostly contained inside humor and jokes that either I thought wasn't funny or that I never understood. 
 

 Good: 

Good part of this whole movie for me was the Sandman 
-Effects of the Sandman was out-f***ing standing, really brought out the character. 
-Sandman, I loved his character, as suprising as it was for me, that the best character in the whole movie was the one I thought would be the worst. Good acting, moving, sad, and easily understanding. 
-Fight scene between Sandman and Spiderman, not as good as the fight scene on the train in Spiderman 2, but it was really good to watch. 
 

Bad: 

-The darker version of Peter Parker, why would Peter Parker act like a prick and care about his hair? In the comics he was more violent and aggressive. 
- Inside humor, I know, I know its a fact that some of the funny moments in the movie was an inside joke between the actors, director, and crew. 
-Green Goblin, doesn't look anything like the Green Goblin we knew, that was upsetting.
- Last but not least, Venom. Weak, skinny, poor looking Venom. No not as cool like you see him in the comics, just weak, soft, and G-rated. Venom in this movie would be perfect for a badguy in a Disney movie to be honest. 
 
Conclusion: 
Yeah, there were some flaws and disappointments, but it was still the Spiderman movie that we expected it to be ( besides Venom ). Anyways, Its pretty good, not the best, but good enough to watch again.

    Another example of how trilogy's stop being good at # 3. 0

    The progressive slaughter of characters and the massive cluster of plots, with plenty of holes included. That's what this movie is. From a visual standpoint, its OK. (When it comes to Spidey and Sandman, not Gobby 2 or Venom) thats not what I wanna talk about. I wanna talk about the characters. So, here we go.  Mary Jane/Kirsten Dunst - After doing an AWFUL job singing(I mean the actress, terrible singing voice.)  in the first part of the film, when she gets bad reviews, she gets very depressed,...

    By The Angry Comic Book Critic      This is a special message I have for Sam Raimi....I would like to know right fucking now exactly what went through your mind as you where making this film were you just board of the series and wanted to ensure that no would let you do a sequel so you could move on to other projects? Or did you just enjoy getting fucked up the ass by the studio who demanded you put all the unnecessary characters that watered down the story and made the whole film a waste of tim...
