Thoughts on Spiderman 3 - The Movie

Just returned from seeing Spiderman 3 at the Imax Theater in Dallas, TX. I have to say seeing a movie on a six story screen is great, to an extent. The problem with seeing a Hollywood movie on Imax is the original film is converted to a format that is over 10 times it's original size. Anyone who has ever blown a picture up knows, you get a lot of grainy pixels in the image. It is worse when you have to sit in the front row and look up the entire movie. Anyhow, enough theater complaints, let's move on to the movie.

Overall I liked Spiderman 3. There are a few boring parts and I am not really a Kursten Dunst fan but the action scenes really made me forget my boredom. Some of the Sandman and Spiderman CGI scenes did not look as real as I expected them to either which really annoyed me. Doesn't anyone screen this stuff? If you create CGI footage for your film you should make sure it fits into the overall scope of the film shouldn't you? If it doesn't fit, try something else. Bad CGI scenes usually pull me out of the story and ruin the movie for me. I have had the same problem with many movies such as Matrix: Revolutions, Star Wars, The Hulk, Ghost Rider, and Superman Returns just to name a few. Wow, notice most of those are comics made into movies. Anyhow, Spiderman 3 is worth seeing and we had fun.

Though I think we may have had more fun stuck in stand still traffic jammin' to Weird Al Yankovic's White and Nerdy with all the windows down and the stereo booming extra hard. We got some strange stares from the other motorists making us laugh quite a bit. If you get the chance, go see this movie. Take some friends and have some fun with it, we did.
