Spider-Man 3, could it have been saved?
We all know Spider-Man 3 was....bad, but could it have been saved?
I'm sure we all feel the same about the third installment of the Spider-Man trilogy, it sucked. So let's explore what made it so bad, and what could have been changed.
First off, villains.
Sandman- decent villain, honestly, no problem with film adaptation of character. Gold Star.
New Goblin- again no real major problems, but come on Raimi, if you killed off any more Spider-Man villains you wouldn't be able to make another movie anyway.
Venom- now I know when we all heard Venom (and the black suit itself) were going to be in this one, we were very excited. But it appears someone at Sony has some sort of mental health disorder. It's like they went, "alright, now Eddie Brock is a big tough guy and one of Spider-Man's greatest foes....let's get that nerdy guy off 'That 70's Show' that'll be good." And then on top of it, they kill him too, so far as I know.
Then the thing that really bothered us....emo Parker. I know the dark suit is supposed to represent his "dark side" but come on, wtf. I didn't know that when a super hero's dark side is let out he dances badly for everyone and thinks jazz hands are a super power.
Besides all that the story....pretty much sucked. Random character's thrown in and a story that should make Stan Lee ashamed, I'm not sure this movie even deserves to be saved.
Maybe with some actor changes, a better script, and some villains that actually live, this movie could have been good. And a side gripe, Parker barely cracked a joke in any of the movies. Is Spider-Man not known for his wise-cracks. Anyway, same drill as before, I'm sure there are things I missed, and there may be some of you who disagree with me. Booyashaka.
