The 11 Best B-Sides From 12 Memories
Last night I saw Spiderman 3, despite the 100s and I mean 100s of flaws, I still found myself really enjoying the film. Maybe I'm just a sucker for over-produced action sequences or it's my life long love for Sam Raimi...but regardless, it was a good time at the movies.
I will say, watching the film reminded me a lot of a great band's later career. As bands get older, they tend to surround themselves with people who are basically just "yes" men and tell them every song they make is great...that's why music from great bands begins to suck. I think Spiderman 3 is beginning to suffer. I feel the like the filmmakers were beginning to believe in their own hype. And just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should. Kirsten Dunst isn't a bad singer...but two songs? Come on.
At least Raimi isn't in Lucas territory yet. Though I want more Spiderman films, maybe it's better to quit while you're ahead.
