^ Well we know that, but I just meant that most people on the street wouldn't have a clue Blade was based on a comic, whereas obviously everyone knows X-Men, Spider-Man, Batman, Superman etc are

Sam is making these movies for seven year olds because even his work on Xena was a billion times edgier.
LOL, actually that's true. With the success of 'The Dark Knight' I am certain we will see the movie studios pushing whatever current comic book hero properties they have. My worry is that they may mess up Superman because of TDK.

It's unintentional misspelling of gawd, which is an intentional misspelling of god

I thought "gawd" was cheerleader-speak?

I was actually a bit taken back this week watchinig spider-man hit on Ms. Marvel (in jest) because even as part of a gag, he's married and... O. He's not married at all and he never was. Pete's allowed to look for punani where ever the heck he feels like it.

Well, color me disappointed. What is wrong with stopping the series as a trilogy, while they have a shred of artistic integrity remaining? I know the world is all about greed, and making money where there is money to be made, but how many other great superheroes are being neglected while they churn out Spider-Man films.

Re: oh dawd, please! Raimi and that stupid turd Tobey making Spidey 4

So coincidentally I do a scan on my HD tv for new channels. I get some HBO HD channels and Starz HD which is airing Spiderman 3.

Rewatching the dance number it's on the same level as the geeky walk in part 2 with "rain drops keep falling on my head". So it's not as bad if you remember something similar was done in SM 2

Harry out for revenge no wait now he's playing basketball with peter, no wait now he's happy at breaking up MJ and Peter, No wait now he's wisecracking in the middle of battle and working with Spiderman. >_>

I think a 4the movie is necessary to end the series on a good note as 3 left Peter and MJ on a sour note. They're relationship needs to be fixed. Also we need 4 to have Spidey swinging through NYC to end it.

I can't believe some people are also writing off any future sequels because of one bad apple.
After the disaster that was SM3, I have no faith in a fourth or fifth.

Even X-Men figured out that they had ruined it after X3.

Re: oh dawd, please! Raimi and that stupid turd Tobey making Spidey 4

I thought the third Spidey flick was a disappointment, sure, after the first two. And I thought one of its biggest flaws was illustrating so well how much more of a perfect Peter/Spidey Topher Grace would have been than Tobey.

That said, Tobey did okay overall, and the first two films give me plenty of faith in Sam Raimi. I think Spidey 3 got screwed around with by the suits (AVI!) who wanted Venom in there to appease the latter-day fanboys.

To me, though, Sam captures Stan Lee-John Romita era Spidey quite nicely, and I would love to see some more.

Re: oh dawd, please! Raimi and that stupid turd Tobey making Spidey 4

I'm pleased. A fourth film will give them the chance to correct some of the mistakes the third made. I don't particularly mind who the villain is (though I'd prefer it if it wasn't Kraven as I always felt he was overrated as a villain) but I would like to see Spider-Man actually fight like Spider-Man.

We got a glimpse of it in the opening fight with Harry in SM3 but for the most part, Spidey just brawls. I want to see Spider-Sense! I want to see Spidey's "you can't hurt what you can't hit" acrobatic style of fighting.

Spider-Man 2 was, for me, an almost perfect superhero movie. If it had one flaw it's that they never explained why Spidey didn't just punch Ock in the face. The arms are strong, sure, theyre strapped to the back of a middle aged scientist. In the comics, Spidey always holds back, knowing he could kill Ock if he hits him too hard.
