I don't want to spoil it...

...or otherwise prejudice people, so I'll just say this about Spiderman 3*...
  • Bruce Campbell rules!
  • The redhead works as a blonde
  • Yes, there's a lot going on
  • Toby Maguire (and for that matter, every other young actor in Hollywood) needs to learn if you're playing a superhero, people want to see the superhero, NOT the superhero with his mask off (or half off or three quarters off or whatever). It's getting weak, Toby.
Thank you. We now return you to your regularly scheduled work day...

*=What? No, I didn't leave the office for 3 hours with 3 coworkers to go see a movie across the street... That would be wrong. (Actually, no it wouldn't. It would be fun. Charging the customer for it would be wrong, and I'm not going to do that.)

You'll appreciate this. At the showing we went to, as we were all collectively dying of the agony of the sloppy writing and the schmaltzy moralizing, we hit the scene where she hits the floor and moans: "Who are you?" In the ensuing silence, someone shouts: "I'm Rick James, b*tch!" Hysterical laughter is such a morale booster--it got us through the rest of that whole movie! Hugs!
