Spiderman 3 - Thoughts and Opinions

Spiderman 3 is the third installment of the Spiderman movie series. Spiderman 3 brings in a few new villains in these movies. There is Sandman/Flint Marko (Thomas Haden Church). Also, Venom/Eddie Brock (Topher Grace) and returning is Harry Osborn (James Franco). Spiderman/Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) and Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst) finally get together. Though, he still faces the inevitable in facing three more enemies. But one night, his "costume" changes black and the ability to enhance his superpowers. As a result, the suit brings out an evil, darker, inimical side of him. Though, after becoming more egotistical, he abandons the suit. Eventually facing the villains. Also appearing in Spiderman 3 is Gwen Stacey (Bryce Dallas Howard) who is the new, love interest of Eddie Brock.

Here are some links for the trailers, information, and whatnot for the movie.

The Official Site
Spiderman 3 (2007)
A bunch of trailers and TV spots from Youtube
More trailers

If you have any more links, feel free to post them.

So, what are thoughts and opinions for this film. Excited? Disgusted?

Personally, I am pretty excited about this movie. Though, I seem to be excited with about every movie that comes out these days. I've already purchased my ticket from the movie next week, right after school.

I never saw the 2nd spider-man, but this one definitely looks like a must see.

While technically a word, you've still used it in a grammatically unacceptable way. You may use boughten as an adjective, to describe something that had been bought. So, had you said, "I've got my boughten ticket" You would be ok. However, it is not a verb, and you get an F.

I can't wait for it. Venom is my favorite villan. I've been waiting for this for a long time. Bring on Spidey 3 I say.

Venom wont be in this one from what I hear. This takes place when Spidey finds his symbiote. Venom comes way later when Eddie Brock finds it. This is about Sandman as the antagoist. Anyway im voting that Venom will come in Spiderman 4

And back to the real topic here:
I am definately going to see the movie. If not for the whole Spiderman thing but because I want to see Eric(The nerdling we all love in the 70s show) become Venom(The most badass villain I know)
But I'm worried of the plot, which is always a problem with comics made into movies. What I've read it seems they're pretty loyal to the original plot in the comics, but it still worries me a bit. However, they have made excellent work thus far in the movie adaptations.

Can't wait

I'm very very excited about Spider-man 3.

I'm a little worried about how Venom will turn out, he looks good in still pictures but in motion I'm not sure.

Sandman has always been the most boring villain in the whole Spider-man universe right next to Doc Ock. So for me the whole Sandman storyline will be overshadowed by my greed of seeing Eddie becoming Venom and fighting Spidey.

I am uber pumped about this. I've read up on it and stuff, so I don't see myself getting dissapointed by venom or the storyline in any major way, so I'm pretty damn excited, also I hear its going to be a long one, which we all know means long fight/chase scenes

wow I didn't even know it was a word.

anyways I'm looking forward to Spider-man 3 very much. I think it looks superior to the first two from the trailers and scenes that I have seen.

I thought the first two Spider-Man movies were quite enjoyable and will definitely head to my local theater to see Spider-Man 3. I am somewhat apprehensive about how well the story will work with three different villains in play though.

I hope it does turn out to be a good or great film. But, some of those movies around the top haven't done so well.

Actually, you fail.

A past participle of buy.
Subsequently, "boughten" is a correct word both in spelling and in grammar. Therefore, I denounce your claims to the throne of the grammar nazi and hereby declare you a participle jew!

I am a little disappointed at the Green Goblin II's design, but I think they will make up for it with everything else. I have not been this excited since forever. I am glad to see the Symbiot alien suit has been brought into the movies. Go Spidey!

I know what you mean. He's kind of thin for Venom.

Still excited though. :DDD

You can use boughten as a participial adjective, just like you can with frozen, as a modifier to describe something. And because a participle is an adjective form of a verb, it's not a verb anymore and cannot be used as such. I keep my throne, and to the dungeons with you.

Regardless though, the definition still clearly dictates the word as a verb, as it says in the very first definition. Sure, you can do whatever faux-grammar wriggling to get out of it, but you can't deny what it bluntly states.

The only case you have is to say that Northern US dialect don't count, but once you do that you'll have the entire state of Montana upon you...

No, the only case I have to say is that it is a participle version of the verb, which is clearly stated. It is a "past participle of buy". It's still TECHNICALLY a verb, but you cannot USE it as a verb in a sentence, which is why I say it is not a verb. You can argue that I was semantically incorrect, but for all intents and purposes it's not a verb. So

So as to avoid my continuing to be completely off-topic, I'm going to see S3 for absolute certainty this Friday. I've even gotten work explicitly off to prevent the slightest possibility of missing it.

I'm really looking forward to this, so I'll be going with a few friends at midnight on Thursday (well, Friday really). It's just a little disappointing that Venom won't be showing up until late in the movie.

I say however people use "boughten" becomes the proper form. It's an evolving language, aint it?

How did a spiderman 3 thread become a grammar school? A thread of this awesomeness should absorb bad grammar harmlessly.

Has anyone got a Venom smiley? That would be a cool adition to this forum.
