Pretty good movie, as expected. The story is what you’d expect from a comic-book movie, but the mid-air fight scenes are really great.
The whole Sandman thing is basically fluff, the movie could have been done without him. He was like a cheap pop to make the whole “dark side” thing easier to start off, but then they had trouble resolving his story. It’s not like he’s a major Spidey villain anyway. Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Venom… that would have been good enough for a trilogy of Spidey movies, all the major bad guys covered.
J. Jonah Jameson is funny as always. It’s hard to take Topher Grace seriously when I keep thinking of him as Eric Foreman. Some of the drama parts are a bit over the top, but The funny bits of the movie are pretty good. The ending is a bit lame though.
I don’t think I made any spoilers. Unless you didn’t already know Sandman and Venom would be there.

Makes me wonder, because I realize that Topher Grace did play the lead on That
70’s Show, but Eric Foreman is also the name of the doctor played by Omar Epps

it’s kind of like x-men 3 where the sequel did not disappoint and was more
intent in tying up loose ends. the people i watched it with said *spoiler
alert* venom should’ve been harder to get rid of/stronger as a villain. after
he becomes venom, i sorta lost the topher grace= eric foreman thing. gotta
love those teeth.

Peng: Yeah, there probably won’t be a Spider-man 4 after this, seeing how they
tried to cram so much into this movie. I wonder if the DVD version will be
Art: If you no longer have time to watch Spider-man on the big screen, then I
fear for your soul my friend. :p
Mike: I don’t actually watch House.
