July 4, 2012 1:22 pm It was a good movie. As good as the first, not as good as the second, and definitely enough to wash the taste of the steaming pile of garbage that was number 3 out of my mouth. It had some issues...the whole thing with the crane operators was stupid and bogged things down, Sally Field was pretty weak as Aunt May, and Pete took his mask off way too often. A lot of this was balanced out by Emma being so much better than Kirsten, Flash Thompson being a character instead of a caricature, and removal of some of the campier elements that I didn't like from the Raimi movies.
July 4, 2012 12:56 pm They won't permanently kill the 616 Parker any more than DC would do that for Bruce Wayne or Clark. At best, we'd get a few months to year without Parker then he'd come back through magic/time travel/super science, etc. They can permanently off Ultimate characters all day, and no one will really care, at least not once they realize it's an "alternate universe", kind of the way DC can make "Green Lantern" gay and get headlines, at least until people realize that there are 32342355 green lanterns, and the gay one's in an alternate universe to boot. For the most part comics have stopped being about good stories and characters and are just about grabbing attention, being "shocking" and pushing a few titles out onto suckers before they realize that it's all just nonsense. Comics have pretty much degenerated to the point that they're not any better than reality TV...except that they're 4 bucks for a 5 minute read, versus an hour's worth of free TV.
July 4, 2012 11:27 am Christ, could they make the new character any more boring? Aren't there about 1000 characters like this in the MU already? This looks like Speedball v 2.0, only with a more boring costume. It might actually have been interesting of they'd made the typical jock guy get the powers and have Peter trying to mentor him...but instead we get science geek mentoring a slacker. Why is it that obnoxious popular kids never get super powers, or if they do they turn into villains? I mean I understand that in order to pull that off you might have to actually have an original thought, some skill as a writer and understand a little thing called a "character arc", but they could at least try and look like they're making an effort instead of rehashing story they've told 1000 times. Instead, what we get is another Power Fantasy For the Lonely. Yaaay!
