Sam Raimi horror - woo!
Alison thingbobs - woo!
The trailer makes it look like a big budget Treehouse of Horror episode. I won't go to the cinema to see this, but if someone illegally downloaded it and brought it to my house I wouldn't say no.
why the press and so many people I usually have a simialr taste to have gone mad about this based on the trailer. I mean, the film might well be good but the trailer makes it look like unmitigated shite.
Sam Raimi hasn't made a good film for about a million years.
Spaderman 2, surely?
...I'm keeping the typo for the potential comic possibilities.
Spiderman 2 was fucking shite.
But... there was a scene where a character raises their arms to the heavens and yells "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!"
How can a film with that in it be shite?
and distilled the two to perfection. Or rather 'perfection'. It's like no one ever SAW Platoon.
I don't actually remember what happened after that bit in Revenge of the Sith. After we stopped laughing, I called an Executive Decision and stopped the DVD. It was for the best.
Oh no, there's Santos taking Leia to Alderaan and Renton takes Luke to Tattooine. That's about it.
Great moment of NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! but I think Watchmen outdoes it.
Spaderman 3 was almost as bad as Tarminator 3
But you're quite right, Spaderman 3 was woeful. And I was expecting so much after the brilliance of Spaderman 2 as well
But the reviews from the finalished movie have been almost universally positive. To the point where geeks are starting to petition for him NOT to make Spiderman 4 and to make more horror. Which is a bizarre state of affairs.
I mean, it has a certain audience appeal who will go and see it but from the trailer I didn't see anything to convince me to revisit a genre I don't particularly enjoy.
I assume it's only getting so much attention because they can put 'Director of Spier-Man' on there to get people to see it who otherwise wouldn't.
and if you don't like horror anyway, of course you won't go and see it.
The Gift was the last horror film of his that I saw at the cinema and I really wasn't that impressed with that. I remember the whole cinema laughing at the speeded up violin player bit.
