This week's reviewed movie is:
Spiderman 3




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber



Despite a few flaws and a little more action, I still essentially enjoyed Spiderman 3, and the moments of great humor.

The sequence in which black-looking goo from outer space affixes itself to Spiderman's suit, making him have a split personality, from very aggressive & nasty to very shy & polite, makes for some fun stuff.

I found there's plenty to like and it's consistently enjoyable, for a good start of the summer blockbusters.

Spidey's back, and this time he's bogged down with three villains and that whiney, fickle girlfriend of his.

Peter Parker takes on his most difficult challenge as he explores his dark side while trying to decide if revenge is more satisfying than proposing to Mary Jane.

Too many villains and too many storylines convolute this overlong sequel in the mega-franchise.

But it's still your friendly neighborhood Spiderman, all the way.

Spiderman 3 is action-packed, with all the digital fireworks that a $250 million budget can buy.

It's both the the most impressive chapter and the nuttiest.

It's a love story, and it's also a Jekyll & Hyde battle for the soul of Spiderman that turns from comedy into a religious parable about forgiveness and redemption.

This comic book blockbuster is not the typical message of a summer extravaganza, where even the villains turn out to have a redeeming human side.
