Emo Spiderman

So I went and saw Spiderman 3 last night at the Rave Cinemas after indulging in some delicious Moe's. I have to say that I have heard a lot of negative comments about this flick, but also a lot of positive comments. Here's my thoughts:
I think the fight sequences were amazing. I thought they took it up a notch from the last movies, which is hard to do, considering all the effects we've already seen in movies. So I have to give them there props on that. I loved the venom character. I'm not trying to Christianize it, but you could definitely interpret some spiritual warfare from that. I thought Venom was probably the best villain of the last 3 movies. I didn't care so much for the Sandman character, because it doesn't look like he can be stopped.
Probably what people didn't like was the whole Emo Spiderman thing, where he actually looked emo, and kind of over played the angry, hurt character. I thought it was hilarious, so I kind of liked it, and I'm thinking they did it on purpose to make it funny.
The thing I did not like was the ending. I thought it was a little drab, and it seemed like they ended it so that they could either do another one with the same people, or not. Over all I thought it was a great movie. I was entertained, which is the main reason I go to the movies.

I have to say I agree with this assessment of the movie, but wanted to interject something. The thing that didn't make sense about the ending is the fact that, as you pointed out, they could do another movie or not, but all of that emotional stuff is only needed for character development, which you only really need if you are going to do another movie. A lot of the longer, boring parts, could have been done without IF there isn't going to be another movie, but if there is then I guess it makes sense to have it in there.
