Marvel Movie Marathon
« on: June 23, 2010, 11:44:36 PM »
Marvel Movie Marathon
As you all know I am doing a marathon of The Incredible Hulk and I was thinking about how I could tie that in with this weekend's marathon. The first thing I did was check to see how many movies I have that The Hulk at least appears in. And that number... while larger then I realized... I didn't feel was large enough for a marathon. So then I checked how many movies I had to choose from within the Marvel universe. That is where I found I had enough choices for a decent marathon.

I decided to put this post up today as I felt I may want to watch a movie or two tomorrow... which is earlier then normal. Below is a list of Marvel movies I have to watch... if there is any you would like to see reviewed just say so... though in this case I already reviewed most... if not all the movies below.

 :laugh: That is ok... I will just have to update the old reviews with the extra info. Some of my old reviews don't even have a rating let alone all the technical info I get from the DVD Profiler HTML window I use. :)

Never watch it. Surprisingly I have the first two, but I've heard so many bad things about the last one that I was not tempted. Maybe I will buy it some day just to complete the set if I find it for sale at 1 or 2$ at amazon.ca marketplace :-\

Spider-Man 3 is the worst of the Spider-Man movies.  Too much was crammed into it.

Oh I agree it was the worst of them... I only ever watched it the once but I believe I still enjoyed it. I am kind of curios about watching it again to see how accurate my memory on it is. :P

I did like it overall too.
I'm thinking I got more annoyed with it when I watched it again.

My Thoughts:
I remember the first time I saw this movie. Since Spider-Man has been my favorite superhero since I was a kid (I know kind of ironic what with me having a bad case of arachnophobia) it is one of the few movies I bothered to go see at the theater when it was first released. I remember initially being disappointed with his web coming from his wrist instead of the webshooters that he created in the cartoons and such I grew up on. But shortly into the movie I decided that I liked the idea of how the movie does it even better then the way I grew up knowing it to be. I thought the choice of Toby Maguire as Peter Parker/Spider-Man was very good... he did a great job with the role. I have watched this movie many times since I got the dvd... and still enjoy it just as much as I did the first time.

Plot:
Two years have passed since the mild-mannered Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) walked away from his longtime love Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) and decided to take the road to responsibility as Spider-Man. Peter must face new challenges as he struggles to cope with "the gift and the curse" of his powers while balancing his dual identities as the elusive superhero Spider-Man and life as a college student. The relationships Peter holds most dear are now in danger of unraveling as he clashes with the powerful, multi-tentacled villain Doctor Octopus aka "Doc Ock" (Alfred Molina).

Peter's life-long yearning for M.J. becomes even stronger as he fights the impulse to abandon his secret life and declare his love. In the meantime, M.J. has moved on with her life. She has embarked on an acting career and has a new man in her life. Peter's relationship with his best friend Harry Osborn (James Franco) has been overshadowed by Harry's growing vendetta against Spider-Man, whom he holds responsible for his father's death.

Peter's life becomes even more complicated when he is pitted against the powerful new nemesis, "Doc Ock." Peter must now learn to accept his fate and harness all his superhero talents in order to stop this diabolical madman in his octagonal tracks.

My Thoughts:
Even though I still enjoyed this movie very much... I never cared for it as much as the first one.... almost... but not as much. I don't like the whole storyline of Peter Parker loosing his ability for a while. I don't like that so many people got to see Spider-Man without his mask on... which is something that I hate about all the Spider-Man movies. The only person that I can accept seeing him without his mask is Mary Jane. To me that felt right. But Doc Ock, Harry and the train full of people shouldn't have happened. Well maybe Harry as it was really needed for the storyline. But that is it. Even though they never said it in the movie... you also get the feeling that Aunt May also knows about Peter being Spider-Man. I did however really enjoy seeing him go up against Doc Ock. I thought they did a good job with him. I also like that we see Professor Connor. It is a shame they didn't let The Lizard be one of the supervillians in any of the Spider-Man movies... I always liked him.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
