What are you people smoking? From Spiderman 1, they missed the mark.
Spiderman was who Peter Parker wished he could be. The hero, the guy who gets the girl, the winner, in short, everything Peter wasn't. They never made Peter look weak enough to make Spiderman stronger in contrast. Yeah Parker is smart, but that was his only positive aspect, and no one cared! It was a fantastic contrast. I just never saw that Spiderman was Parkers release from himself in the movies.
Spiderman 2 was good for the last 45 minutes or so only, but when you rip off the story of Jesus and general conflict resolution, it's hard to screw it up. Thats the only nice thing I can say about all 3 movies.
Now as for three....unless you're a 14 year old girl, crying in a corner cause your "boyfriend" dumped you, cutting yourself listening to Hawthorne Heights, you would realize that movie SUCKED BALLS, cause that's who that movie was made for. Everyone freaking cried but Venom. Fuck that. That movie was a god damn emo fest top to bottom. I was never in awe of Venom, which the comics did numerous times. Sandman was a pussy, and Peter going "black" with an emo hair cut and eye liner, was just retarded. Yes the symbiote makes him more aggressive, but making him look emo was not needed. And how freaking hard would it have been to make Harry the Hobgoblin over that ugly, whatever he was.
To me, the movies didn't do a good job in making me believe that these people were playing characters I've spent years reading about. I know it's hard to condense 30 plus years of comics into a 2 hour movie, but if you can't properly portray who these characters are, then you've failed in your job as a film maker to capture the essence of what something is. Peter Parker is a loser of the highest caliber, and I never felt that in when Toby was playing him. And since he screwed that up, he could never portray Spiderman as who Parker wished he could be.
And I know I'm completely in the minority here because those movies made umteen millions of dollars, but whatever.
