    The Spiderman thread

    just got back from one hour detours due to may day, but I saw Spiderman, and OMFG!

    The suspension of disbelief is incredible in the movie. For a while, I forgot that I was even watching a live action flick. It felt so much like watching a comic book. And yes, it did live up to it's hype. Go see this movie, you won't regret it.

    Does he do whatever a spider can? Does he spin a web, any size, that catches thieves, just like flies?

    I saw it on sunday and thought it was amazing looking but, I think they focused a little too much on the love story part between him and Mary Jane, and had little action of him actually being spiderman.

    Yes. The one where you really dont see it coming. Theres all the 'bad guys' running around doing stuff and then they all pile in a hellicopter and they're gettin away, and suddenly ... *streeeeeeetch*


    >>why is it that movie makers try to get a love story into a lot of films ??

    No idea. Some movies just lose out from it. Anyone watch Gladiator? Damn good flick. I read that the producers tried to get Crowe to get it on with the Ceasars sister in that dungeon bit where she comes to visit him. Apparently he absolutly refused to do it because he said it would have been out of character (he was avenging his dead wife after all). Glad to know somebodies sticking up for themselves.

    ive watched Gladiator 4 times, great movie. mind you i love Roman stuff.

    didn't know about that scene you mentioned, but Russell Crowe was absolutely correct if that's true. how ridiculous, he wouldn't have forgot his dead wifey so quick.

    i was interested in Titanic, cos its an interesting story till i read the reviews and found out it was just a long bloody love story...yuck. i only saw it 3 weeks ago on BBC TV, and it was yuck, so yuck.......

    just make soppy love stories (chick flicks) for the chicks to have a weepie over, then make decent films for us guys. wish they wouldn't try to mix the two and ruin it.....

    I'm probably going to see Spider-man tonight at
    10:30...

    Hey, how come Spider-man is the only super-hero
    that has one of these ('-') in his name? Look,

    Batman, not Bat-man.
    Superman, not Super-man.
    Spider-man, not Spiderman.

    It's trippy.

    Titanic is the best love-story movie. It's not
    even debatable. Deal with it!

    least it was promoted as a love story. what i don't get is where they shoe-horn a love story into an otherwise decent film.

    anyway, try getting married, that'll cure you of your romantic notions !

    To make it appeal to both sexes.

    Lucas was quite clear that he was trying to include a 'forbidden' love story in StarWars2 to try and attract more teenage girls to the movie. (he already has boys)
