Spider-Man 3 REVIEW

After reviewing the first two Spider-Man movies the last two weeks, I guess it’s time for the much-maligned Spider-Man 3.  Unfortunately, I think this is the beginning of a long summer of mediocre movies.  Fortunately, however, Spider-Man 3 isn’t actually as bad as I thought it would be.  It’s certainly not a particularly good movie, but it doesn’t ruin the Spider-Man trilogy as badly as I thought it did.

But let’s get into the movie itself.

Spider-Man 2 REVIEW

Spider-Man 2 has been referred to as one of the best superhero movies ever produced.  It has been called the best Spider-Man movie to-date (which isn’t much of a compliment, considering the competition!).  And both of those statements are true.  However, there’s a little more to it than that.

Spider-Man 2 is certainly a good movie—one of the few comic book movie sequels to actually improve on the original.  However, after watching it again, particularly in light of the much more serious modern comic book movies, it is eminently clear that this is a spectacularly campy movie.

Wonder Woman REVIEW (SPOILERS)

Considering that Green Lantern (the anticipated beginning of DC’s movie universe) was Dead-On-Arrival, Man of Steel was only a qualified success, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice collapsed under the weight of its own self-importance, Suicide Squad’s marketing made promises the movie didn’t deliver, and the trailer for Justice League attached to Wonder Woman needs the subtitle “Attack of the Bloat,” Warner Bros. and DC really needed to hit it out of the park with Wonder Woman. And considering their last female-led superhero movie was Catwoman, a lot of execs’ chairs must have been feeling pretty warm the last few months…

Good thing Wonder Woman is a winner!

Spider-Man (2002) REVIEW

This summer Peter Parker is making his second MCU appearance in his first MCU solo movie.  This has really been a long time coming, considering Spider-Man’s place in Marvel Comics:  even if Spider-Man isn’t the greatest comic book superhero ever, he is certainly the most bankable one!  When Marvel sold off the rights to many of their characters back in the ‘90s, Sony grabbed up the rights to Spider-Man and turned them into five different movies.  In the 5 weeks before Spider-Man: Homecoming is released in July, I am going to go through those five movies and review them.  I’ve seen all of these movies before (maybe just bits and pieces of Spider-Man 2 and 3), but I’m going to rewatch them all to give my thoughts.

Today, we are kicking it off with the original Spider-Man.
