EDIT: I might give it a new rating.
:up: I give a thumb up to this film.
One of the most anticipated flicks of the summer has finally arrived- Spider-man 3! :) When I saw it, I thought wow! How brilliant! :rolleyes: Maybe not exactly brilliant; it was alright. But it was sort of a disapointment of a film that's awaited for so dang long! I still give this movie respect for its hard work put into although some of that work was a waste of time. Perhaps some of the unecessary scenes needed to be cut off, and not only that, some character development would of been nice. At least for the new characters.
I'm not however, disapointed with the fact that Venom isn't that focused in the movie. I didn't expect that to happen. At least Venom doesn't look too bad. However, he's not as big and buff as in the comics, but that's alright. About Sandman, I didn't really care much about him. However, the character was well done in the film. I loved the two actors' performances. (Thomas Hayden Church and Topher Grace are the actors.) Harry is also a new villain in town however, he just wants to get revenge on Pete for his father's death. Along with his motive, Brock aka Venom also wants revenge for humiliation that Parker has given him. As for Sandman aka Flint Marko, commited crimes because he wanted to help his daughter with her sickness.
Some other shining moments include outstanding effects although sometimes unbelievable. Without the marvelous effects given, I wouldn't given it extra credit for the movie. Another great thing about Spider-man 3 is that we have Sam Raimi directing again, not many superhero sequels continue to have the same directors when the third movie's around. (X3 is an example.) The script however, didn't work for me as much as the other two movies. There's some random parts like the dancing scene with Peter and Gwen. Funny parts are included like the scene with the Matire'd played by Bruce Campbell, making a cameo appearance for the third time, and it also included the scene where Eddie Brock, whose alter ego is Venom, yells "What the hell?" when Spidey broke his camera on purpose with his web.:D I just, however, didn't like the scenes where Peter makes a huge big fool of himself by thinking he's the ladies' man or something when he walks down the street- and he thinks that new hairdue was cool? Come on. But of course that was supposed to be a funny moment. Too bad that there was not enough scenes of J. Jonah Jameson, played by J.K. Simmons
The cast features: Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco, Thomas Hayden Church, Topher Grace, J.K. Simmons, and Rosemary Harris. Brilliant acting from all of them is used all over again. That's another shining moment of the film.:)
Not too bad, yet it could of been better. 2nd one was the best! Because of the shining moments however, I give this a 7 out of 10.

THUMB DOWN TO THIS MOVIE :down:
The Shrek series happens to be one of the most beloved animated series of today. The first two movies were great. They were smart, funny, and charming at the same time. With the third movie, the creators probably thought, "With this script, what can go wrong?" Oh, I don't know, everything could go wrong, and it did. I'm sorry to say that this movie just disapointed me. I wasn't even a bit excited about the movie coming out. The movie actually bored me. There's not a lot to say about it, really. It's just freaking horrible, and I WOULD DARE you to see it again. Just because it's part of a famous series doesn't mean it's always bad, but this movie actually sucked. End of review.
