So I just saw Spider-Man 3, it was OK. I'm still digesting what I saw but initial impressions are that it drags a lot in the middle. The effects were decent again, the story was faithful to the source in some respects and wildly different in others. I don't want to go into too much detail and spoil the movie for any one who hasn't seen it.
I guess I just didn't feel the same excitement the I felt for the other two in the series. Some how it just didn't grab me the same way, maybe because I knew the original stories too well.
Apropos of nothing, I'd also like to say I saw trailers for some truly awful looking movies. I mean honestly does the world need another Jackie Chan/Chris Tucker buddy cop movie? That's not rhetorical, the answer is a resounding NO! But the new Bourne movie looks pretty cool.
