Hey-hey! I scored a free pass to an advance screening of Spider-man 3 tonight!
Wait, I got the emphasis wrong. Try that again. “Hey-hey! I scored a free pass to an advance screening of Spider-man 3 tonight!”
And good thing it was free. Wow. I wouldn’t pay full price for that. Not a well-written script (plot holes you could drive a truck through), not very well-acted (just not believable), and not well directed — the action scenes that should have wowed me were too fast to appreciate. Slow it down, guys!
I can’t even say the effects were impressive because they’re not eye-popping enough to stand on their own anymore. They really need more to support them. My own fault I suppose — I should have remembered that I didn’t like Spider-man 2 either.
There were bright spots (Bruce Campbell delivers a funny scene, Topher Grace has nice energy and attitude, and there’s a dance number that is as fun as the rest of the movie should have been), but not nearly enough of them.
One of my co-workers was there with her son. I hope he enjoyed it!
