Director: Sam Raimi
Run time: 2hrs 1m
We’ve both seen this one before, but with the new Spiderman film rapidly approaching, we wanted to recap what had already been done – so as to more easily compare and contrast. I think I’ve seen the second one, but I don’t think I saw the third. We intend to watch all three!
1:00 – Credits that include lots of spider webs won’t intice the arachnophobes to the film. But then would they watch Spiderman anyway?
2:11 – Long ol’ credits.
4:17 – These people don’t even look like kids, they are far too old!
7:47 – He seems like a cool teacher.
9:19 – “Let’s go talk about how we listen.”
12:29 – Then the only possible option is to test it on himself! Obvs.
14:58 – I’m a bit worried that the spider is still out there. It could bite someone else.
21:47 – It’s like The Hangover… piecing together what happened the night before. Only in this case it was stealing gliders and killing people.
27:55 – He’s drawing an awful lot of attention to himself. Not very good at this secret identity business.
31:36 – “You’re taller than you look,” is up there with “Is it raining?”
38:21 – Oh dear. He landed on that table on his head. And this kind of wrestling isn’t pretend.
41:45 – I love how fickle the crowd are. Chanting Spiderman straight away. That’s my kind of crowd!
44:38 – RAGE!
46:01 – I’ve always wanted to know how his wrist knows to let go of one when he’s about to swing to the other.
54:43 – How does Spiderman find the people doing bad things? He doesn’t have that weird radar that Superman does, does he?
56:13 – There’s nothing quite like ye olde newspaper editor.
1:01:46 – I would watch a whole film about this newspaper man.
1:04:44 – Bonus Macy Gray!
1:09:54 – Jeez, MJ screams an awful lot.
1:17:46 – “In spite of everything you’ve done for them, eventually they will hate you.”
1:21:04 – He said the same words in Peter’s voice and she still didn’t flinch. Does she need a neon sign?
1:31:52 – Horrible yellow eyes, see, no good ever came of yellow.
1:36:19 – That’s an awesome evil laugh Defoe has. It’s like Thriller awesome.
1:45:41 – It’s true. This film does have some of the worst dialogue ever.
1:47:11 – More rage.
1:49:36 – In hindsight, that was a terrible plan anyway, because it always would have hit him even if it had hit Spiderman as well.
1:56:04 – Liiiiightbullllb.
I remember this film being a lot better than it was on a second viewing. The dialogue is shockingly bad, some of the worst I’ve heard in a long while. The acting leaves quite a lot to be desired, and given it’s age, half the CGI doesn’t really stand up to the test of time. But, that’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it. It’s still a good, fun way to spend a couple of hours. It does make me nervous about the other two though!
