I dunno I would've loved to have seen John Malkovich as The Vulture...something about Garfield's appearance just annoys the shit out of me. I'm gonna give it a shot though.

For Spider-Man 4, what they really should have planned for was the Sinister Six. That would have been an epic way to close out those films.

This may be a dumb question but they don't account for inflation whenever they are writing how X movie is the highest grossing movie of Y period ever, do they?

Nope, they don't. I read somewhere once that if they did, Gone with the Wind would still be one of the highest grossing films ever.

Yeah, I mean, when I was 15 and worked at a movie theater you could see a matinee movie for $4.50 on the weekend. When I saw Prometheus in IMAX 3D it was $20 a ticket.

You also have to factor in the fact that movies used to stay in the theater a lot longer. People didn't have a way to watch them at home, so it wasn't uncommon for popular films to stay on the big screen for many, many months. Often to return at a later date too.

To those who have seen it, any Easter eggs I should look out for (excluding the credits scene)?

As soon as the opening credits start or the Marvel logo? When exactly?

Logo.

Saw it today. Garfield and Stone blow Tobey and Dunst out of the water.

Pros:
Better cast
Much better acted
Better dialogue
Better cinematography
Better spiderman/webslinging
New York looks good and stereotypical New Yorkers were kept to a minimum.
Also, Stan Lee's cameo was good (and that's saying a lot because I hate his cameos and think they tend to take you out of the film)

Cons:
Shitty score
A lot of the same beats as the Raimi film
Some annoying contrived plot points
curt connors started out strong but quickly turned into a one-dimensional villian
some shitty cgi

If this was the first spider-man film ever made, I would have been blown away. Having said that, this film is worth seeing, if just for the great chemistry between the two leads.

Just got back from it. Thought it was really well done. Enjoyed the new spin on Peter's character. Gwen was HOT. Loved the interaction between the two.

Agree about Conners. Started out so promising and just kind of "devolved" laugh.gif

REALLY entertaining. Would advise all to go see it.

So, any word on who Conners was talking to in the cell during the bonus scene?

As a huge spidey fan, I can´t wait to see it. It´s taking forever to be released here. Hopefully it´ll be next week.
