About this Spider-Man movie…

If you’ve read this site for a while you know to navigate away as soon as you see that I’ve posted a picture of a live-action superhero. I’ve gotten better since the days of my old blog Otisburg with the exception of the lapse into madness that was Ghost Rider Day. I’ve made no big deal about Spider-Man 3 since the media is perfectly capable of doing that without my help. I guess it made more than Man-Thing, that’s what I’m gathering. Of course these records are all asterisks now. Did it make the most money? Or did it make the most money for a movie that was opened world wide on non-consecutive non-wednesday opening days pre-labor day? I find it fascinating that Hollywood was surprised that it made money. Really? I kind of knew it would, but I guess there’s the Grindhouse scenario, they thought that would make bank too. I don’t have all the statistics but I think a Summer PG Superhero kids movie opening worldwide has a better chance than a three hour slasher film opening on Easter. Is it just me? Do people get paid handsomely to make the analysis I just did?

My point here is that I haven’t seen it yet because Superhero movies are like Christmas, it’s all about the eve my friend. Last night I thought about going, but instead went to Blockbuster (no guilt going there anymore, they’re tanking) and rented Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Hulk, Superman Returns, and Batman Begins. I also bought X-Men 3 and V For Vendetta for cheap. They also had a copy of Batman & Robin for 9.99. I almost got it, I have an odd obsession with that movie. It’s a very fun tradition getting ramped up for the newest Superhero movie, and much more fun getting excited about Spider-Man 3 than it was to get excited for the The Phantom. “SLAM EVIL!” (why don’t you go slam that marketing guys dick in the car door of the producer of The Shadow?)

But my real point here is that it’s unbelieveable how shitty Fantastic Four is.
