Welcome to the first installment of 100-Word Review, in which I — you’ll never see this coming — review a movie, TV show, book or whatever in exactly 100 words. Â Most of the time, this will be used either for items which are not very current and not worth the time for a full review, or for things about which I just don’t have that much to say. Â And no, these introductory words don’t count for this one.
What the holy hell? Â How could the same people who made one good and one very good Spider-Man movie make such utter, irredeemable dreck the third time out? Â A nonsensical script, special effects which not infrequently looked half-done, a fucking dance sequence, people…really, please can someone tell me what the hell happened here? Â Characters spouted off wretched dialogue and changed motivations and attitudes on a whim, major plot points were determined by ridiculous coincidence, Tobey Maguire…I’d heard this was bad, but holy crow, it was way worse than I’d imagined. Â Please, please don’t let these people make a Spider-Man 4.
