Holy crap, there's a new Spiderman 3 trailer. And just like the trailers for previous Spiderman movies, it gives away the entire plot.
So here is my early review of Spiderman 3 (spoilers ahead!):
It was a very entertaining movie. There was more action than in the previous movies, which was good. Peter finally got some action himself with Mary Jane, on a giant web. Action is his reward, after all. Gwen Stacey also showed up, and he may have gotten a little on the side with her, but it really wasn't his fault, because he was possessed by an evil black goo from space. Still, this makes Peter pretty confused, especially after he realizes that Mary Jane would look better with blonde hair and Gwen Stacey would look better with red hair. If only he could invent a machine to combine them. Next movie maybe?
Now, in the comic books, I don't remember Sandman being the one who killed Peter's uncle. I bet this will piss a lot of people off. However, it does have a certain elegance to it, with the Green Goblin Harry Osborn revenge story coming to a climax in this sequel. Both Peter and Harry get to deal with revenge in different yet similar ways. It works out nicely.
And Venom (the combination of the evil black space goo and Topher Grace) is awesome, but is really only in the movie for a few minutes. This is probably good, or else the Spiderman series would fall into the Batman series' "too many villain" shittiness.
Overall, I really enjoyed Spiderman 3, and I look forward to seeing it.
Does whatever a spider can,
Spins a web, any size,
Oh my God, he's eating flies!
