Amazing film from start to finish. Its 3X the movie the first Spiderman was and Alfred Molina deserves credit for bringing Doc Oc on the screen as perfectly as I could have imagined him.

 

Something I wanted to give special mention to was the operating room scene with Octavius. If that wasn't Sam Raimi channeling Evil Dead I don't know what was! (Everything from the lighting, camera angle usage, first person point of view used to follow the tentacles. I swear I was waiting to hear "SWALLOW YOUR SOUL! SWALLOW YOUR SOUL! and I loved every minute.)

 

...and oh my god the Subway train sequence.... :shock: :shock:

 

This ones up there with X-2 as one of the best superhero adaptations/films I've seen and I wouldn't be suprised to see many people calling it the best action/adventure film to come out this summer.

 

EDIT: The Blade Trinity trailer looks damn good also. All over that one when it releases!

Saw it yesterday and man oh man, what a great movie. After I see it again, I'll determine if it will top X2 as the best comic movie ever.

 

BTW, can someone tell me how the film ended? The film melted with a couple of minutes left.

 

 

SPOILERS AHEAD..............

 

 

 

The last part I saw was Peter and MJ talking in Pete's apartment and she just got done telling him how her life would only be 50% complete if she did not take the risk with him.

 

 

 

......END SPOILER

 

 

 

Oh, and that Subway scene has to be one of the greatest action scenes ever put together. As a matter of fact, any scene with Spidey and Doc Ock going at it was some of the best action on film....period.

Dean,

 

If I remember correctly, they kiss and then the sounds of sirens passing Peter's apartment are heard. Peter looks towards the sound and back at MJ. She says "Go get 'em, Tiger", and he takes off, swinging down the street after the cops. MJ watches him go from the window of Peter's apartment. Fade to black.

 

Awesome ending, sorry you missed it....

To add to what Whooter said...

 

SPOILER ALERT!!!

 

 

 

 

It was a very emotional scene with them finally getting to kiss in a way that demonstrates there love for each other. Her "Go get em, Tiger" line brought a huge round of applause from both crowds I saw the film with (saw it twice yesterday :green:). After he leaps out the window, Mary Jane runs to the window to see him off with a look of pride and love on her face. What I loved about that scene is that Sam Raimi goes back to her after a series of shots of Spider-Man swinging to his destination and she has a worried look on her face. This will definately come into play in the next installment since Mary Jane has always worried for Peter's well being when it comes to putting his life on the line to fight villians. It will probably cause them to split up, especially if they get married (which they did in the comics).

 

 

 

Sorry but I couldn't figure out how to use the spoiler feature on this forum.

There were kids crying in the theater I saw it in during this scene! About half way through the scene I leaned over to my wife and said, "this is so Evil Dead all it needs is a chainsaw"..........and damn if that guy didn't pick up a chainsaw!

 

Come on Sam, you have some time between finishing up the DVD for Spider-Man 2 and starting Spider-Man 3......give us what we want, Evil Dead 4!

The last 5 minutes of the film were perfect. And im so glad that they showed

 

 

Harry Finding the Goblin stuff and then picking up the serum. I just hope they change the mask, or something goes wrong during his using the serum which makes him hobgoblin or something

I finally caught this film today. Absolutely amazing! I'm a huge fan of the first film (although I never read any of the comics) and this indeed improved upon the original in just about every way.

 

The one thing I appreciated the most about Spider-Man 2 was the fact that it was the first superhero movie I've seen which wasn't about defeating the super villain. Sure, the big climax of the film revolved around Doc Oc, but that part of the story felt almost like a sub-plot to the real story of the film: the misery of Peter Parker.

 

It's heart-wrenching to see him put through the ringer like that. No matter what he does, no matter how many people he saves, he can never please everyone - most of all the people he loves. The audience feels for him too, because he doesn't whine about his situation incessantly. He takes his hits and keeps going, doing the best he can until he reaches his breaking point. When he gets there, the audience understands his misery completely and can fully understand why he makes the choice to reject the Spider-Man side of his life.

 

At any rate, this is easily the best movie of the summer so far, and perhaps the best summer movie since the original hit theaters two years ago. SEE IT NOW!!!

Yep the Villian was the background story pretty much , but it also worked into showing that Spiderman/Peter is just one guy, and people need to understand it. The train scene with the people was excellent.The Oct stuff was pretty much used to furthur the Harry Hating Spidey Story line

I have liked most of the Super Hero movies in the last 5 or 6 years. I liked Spidey 1 and X-men 1 but what they suffered from was having to do the charectors origins in the first films. Now that both have had a sequal , they are truely showing how these movies are meant to be done. Bring on Blade 3

I liked this movie, more than the first one, I was bugged by a few things at various points in the movie (including Aunt May's forced speech alluded to by Kfred.). But I enjoyed it a lot. I thought Alfred Molina was superb, all in all a much more satisfying villain than Dafoe/Green Goblin. Speaking of which, I agree with Joey about the mask...

Best...Comic Book Movie...Ever

 

Spider-Man is probably my most beloved comic book hero of all time, and thus I have a fairly critical eye on these movies. However, Sam Raimi continues to prove his respect and dedication to the material with this film.

 

Well done to everyone in the cast and crew!!

Saw it today. Great movie.

 

I have decided, however, to never go to the movies again unless it's rated R or NC-17. I can no longer deal with parents and their children who they refuse to control. There was a kid who, from the beginning of the movie, kept asking, "Is it over? Give me my coke. I want to go home. Where's my comic book? I want to go home. MOOOOMMMMMM."

 

And mom didn't do a thing about it. When I looked over and shushed the child, she looked at me like some sort of horrible person.
