>Paul Giamatti humiliated himself to setup a sequel that will never be made and a role he will never be paid for
How do you think he feels?
whoever did the sound design on that movie needs to be shot
if it wasnt for the shitty inspirational music that scene would actually be pretty good
or at least pretty closely mirroring the comics in terms of how spiderman actually fights and whatnot
Paul Giamatti confuses me.
He does awful shit like this and yet he also does great shit like John Adams and American Splendor.
oh shit jame we forgot to add this song, we already paid for royalties
fuck it just add it to this scene
but james it doesnt fit the narrative or emotional charge of that scene in the slightest
who cares, were sony how can we possible fail
ASM2 was one of the worst films ever made.
I haven't seen the new Fantastic Four, but I doubt it can be worse than ASM2. Maybe just as bad, but not worse.
The only redeeming quality of ASM2 is the costume....thats the only thing they got right.
I mean.. It isn't the first embarrassing thing he's done for a paycheck.
thats actually depressing to hear
the rhinos not that great of a character to began with, and now i seriously doubt any future spiderman movie will even show him. and if they did i doubt they would use the same actor and risk being associated with asm2
Tobey was garbage, man, his acting was really bad, plus the writing of Sam's triilogy was cringeworthy.
And Sam never did anything good after Spiderman 1 except for the remake of Evil Dead.
Even Ash vs Evil Dead is pretty lacking.
Garfield going full retard coupled with Sony Pictures going full retard + the movie was roasted in reviews and it performed under expectations.
Sony wanted desperately to make a Sony Spiderman extended universe movie series but someone with enough sense to realize this was the worst way to go managed to stop the shit.
>In a new report, Latino Review claims that Sony is – as stated – thinking of making a movie based on Spider-Man character Aunt May. The movie would be set in the past (Mad Men is name-dropped for comparison) and detail how the Amazing Spider-Man version of Aunt May (played by Sally Field) was actually a spy in her youth. This would be, of course, a totally new backstory for the Aunt May character – because nothing like this has ever been done in Spider-Man comics, which have gone to some pretty whacky places in their own right.
Never go full retard Sony
The biggest problem for Sony Pictures is they insist on being really fucking progressive in many of their movies lately.
Also didn't help matters that Garfield literally could not shut up about wanting Spiderman to be bisexual and him getting a black bf so he could kiss a man in the next movie instead of a eww disgusting mary jane.
So he was shit even before I was born?
I know that, I watched Evil Dead 3. Honestly, I don't know how Army of Darkness got a good reception. The humour was so bad and slapstick.
I'm that kind of person who prefers Evil Dead 2 over Army of Darkness, so...
I haven't watched it because I fucking love the Fantastic Four, and I don't watch Jack Kirby get shit on for 2 hours
>People act like this was the worst scene in the movie
>Its the only fun part of the damn film
>Also didn't help matters that Garfield literally could not shut up about wanting Spiderman to be bisexual and him getting a black bf so he could kiss a man in the next movie instead of a eww disgusting mary jane.
He only said it once, you guys are the ones who can't shut up about it and constantly talk about when Garfield is brought up.
Go to bed, Raimi. Venom was one of the most loved characters in the comics. I wonder what direction he would've taken with Carnage, or the next character he didn't like.
This man was in Thunderpants.
I don't think he gives a shit.
Whoa whoa whoa, I didn't love TFA either, but you could make a cut of it with just the worst parts and turn it into a true Mary Sue film...and even then it would be nowhere near as bad as ASM2.
Its almost impressive how bad ASM2 is...it fails in nearly every regard as a movie.
don't have any feelings about the movies (haven't seen them since I was a child) but that's a fucking awesome scene, love to see confidence in a director, usually these capeshits are played so safe and formulaic, this almost comes straight from Godard or Carpenter
>tfw a child hearing this for the first time in a real life spiderman movie
>didn't know about this movie
>look it up
>mfw reading the description of it on wikipedia
This seems so ridiculous I might have to just watch it myself
>4chan and reddit are in complete agreement
>I'm literally the only person who likes ASM series
Making Electro a yandere was a really unique take on his origin, and he was an interesting and compelling antagonist since he was fighting both sides at once. The bromance between Harry and Peter was also pretty slick.
I like the ASM series too, in a "Saturday Morning Cartoon: Live Action" kind of way. They're not movies I would recommend to others and I'm not sure if I'll ever watch them again since there's so much fresh capeshit coming out all the time, but I enjoyed them.
i agree that electro sucks but to be fair, they did show how obviously deranged and unbalanced he was
seeing him and spiderman as best friends, forgetting his name probably seemed like a pretty big betrayal to electro, it would make sense that it would snap his very fragile pysche
And the writing didn't help either.
Kurtzman and Orci are fucking hacks that don't get how to make a compelling story that the audience can get absorbed into, and it shows. The fucking magic blood bullshit, the over-developed and somehow underwritten setpieces, bad dialaogue, the works.
I dont understand how these fucking morons keep getting hired to write characters they clearly don't care about. Spiderman should never consider moving away from NYC for some pussy. What the hell happened to "great power and great responsibility?"
Giamatti will take pretty much any fucking role if offered.
He took John Adams because he hated John Adams and wanted to challenge himself. No other reason.
He'd probably appear on fucking Half in the Bag if RLM had his phone number and a thousand bucks.
But that really seems to be the case though, First Class and Raimi's Spiderman notwithstanding.
Marvel Studios actually hires people that give a shit instead of spineless yesmen like Sony does.
Everyone at Warner is on drugs though. You'd think that writers and directors with access to the DC archives would take the time to actually use those resources.
He was in the only two good scenes in the movie, which were largely only good because of him. For all the "not muh rhino" bitching he got, he was the only villain, maybe character in general, in the movie wasn't completely terrible.
You want to talk about humiliated? Dane Dehaan was clearly embarrassed to even be on set.
>tfw I went to watch the movie to the theater because the trailer deceived me with that scene
>Peter eating a hot dog
>that corny ass freeze frame at the end
Jesus christ I miss Raimi's Spider-Man series.
Dane Dehaan was way too good of an actor to be in such horrid schlock.
And for all his troubles, he ended up looking like a meth head in a shitty homemade Iron Man costume.
>he ended up looking like a meth head in a shitty homemade Iron Man costume.
The goblin was just shit all around. They didn't know how to work him into the story, nobody knew how to design him, and Dehaan didn't know how to play him. Pretty clear signs that they just shouldn't have bothered.
But in Dehaan's defense, the writing was shit. Can't really work with something if you have shit writing.
And you're right, they really should not have bothered. He is literally the movie equivalent a last minute bossfight in a crappy video game.
Exactly. I'm glad the Amazing series got shitcanned and that Sony Pictures is suffering for it.
I'm curious to see where the guys at Marvel Studios are taking it, given the director said he was directly inspired by John Hughes. Mite b cool
>the writing of Sam's triilogy was cringeworthy.
Fuck off, the writing in the first two movies is great. It's corny and over the top but they're fucking superhero movies. Sam is the only director that has ever successfully captured the feeling of a comic book and put it on the big screen.
>Sam never did anything good after Spiderman 1 except for the remake of Evil Dead.
Drag Me to Hell
>Even Ash vs Evil Dead is pretty lacking.
Ash vs Evil Dead was everything I had hoped for. Tons of gory practical effects and Ash being Ash. What more do you want?
SM2 > SM >>> SM3 > TASM >>> TASM2
Can we all agree on this? I used to rank TASM above SM3 but the more I think about it the more I like SM3 and the less I like TASM. SM3 has tons of problems but it benefits from the touch of a director who has style and vision. TASM is a completely by the numbers superhero origin movie, nothing about it is unique or stands out.
Did you at least leave halfway through? It was so unbelievably boring
Were we not supposed to feel bad for Electro?
He's painted as this poor, lonely guy, but the movie also takes great length to show he's a fucking weirdo with obsessive tendencies. But it pushes it too far and makes him look legitimately disturbed. So either he's a lonely dude who can't catch a break, or a mentally ill man that no one even tries to understand. Either way, seems a lot more sympathetic than two teenagers squabbling about an off-and-on puppy love.
Then at the end of the movie, Spider-Man (who was seen to have understood that Electro wasn't in his right mind earlier in Time Square) just fucking wastes him without trying to reason with him at all, and we're just supposed to be happy about it.
In unfinished parts of the movie they use other soundtracks as placeholder
like, in that leaked Origins Wolverine workprint they use the Transformers soundtrack

>A boy with a farting problem whose only friend is a boy who doesn't have a sense of smell
Everyone always talks about Simmons being the most spot-on casting ever, and it was great casting, but Willem as GG was absolutely just as perfect. Nobody else could have made that work as well.
>it's an allegory for 4chan members and normies feeling good about disregarding desperate and lonely men with no real solution
>there are people who unironically defend this movie
>there are people who unironically like this movie
>there are people who like this movie better then the sam raimi ones
If I were massively rich and famous, I'd wear a stupid T-shirt to help me seduce MILF Tara Strong.
>It's so bad it's actually kinda weird.
The third act was like being hypnotized. It's not a stupid kind of bad you can either laugh or get frustrated at, yet it's not bland, either. It's just illogical and and strange, and though I couldn't bring myself to care, I couldn't look away.
This is my absolute favorite movie to watch with friends. Everything about it is solid gold. Giamatti isn't even bad in it; he's the only one having fun in a comic book movie. Seriously, get your buddies over and just rip it apart. It's the best.
>Villain has electric powers
>Tries to fight him using water
I've seen the fucking movie before. Whoever uploaded this cut out very small pieces here and there, and also sped the overall video up a tiny bit. That's why it flows so awkwardly and sounds weird.
This is obviously getting a lot of hate. But I really enjoy some of the otherworldy dare I say video game-ish imagery being employed here, and emphasis on Spider-Man's acrobatic abilities (despite being showcased in somewhat shoddy cgi). Spider-Man as a series has always had a sort of retro pulpy feel where the villains where shakespearian sob stories and Spidey prone to waxing on poetically at times. Why am I bringing this up? Well this scene in my mind is that sort of theatrical (as in a stageshow) type conflict where action doesnt serve itself but instead reveals aspects of the characters. Obviously with the heavy Hamlet ghost dad reference, but otherwise with Spider-Man and Electro's constant injection of flair and style into their every move. Marc Webb's dynamic camera work enhanced this as well
I've said my piece, its 300 am. I wouldnt have minded a "Amazing Spiderman 3" if the script was worth it
I just wish there was a good fan edit of ASM2. I sort of liked it, but I remember there being too many folk songs/hipster shit in the movie and too many romance scenes that dragged on.
There's actually one where some guy combined the first two movies so it can just be watched as a standalone film. But who knows how good that is.
I am so fucking pissed they're using his voice instead of Kevin Michael Richardson's in Ratchet & Clank. It's fucking ridiculous.
I'm already pissed about the design for Chairman Drek; holy shit don't get me started.
Good lord, that sounds AND looks bad. I understand where they were going with this shit, but it just doesn't work in a movie.
>People shit on the Raimi flicks over this
>i honestly wouldnt mind if there was a mass genocide of adult men who watch MLP
Why bother? They'll die out within a generation, mostly. Few of these fucks can get laid, let alone reproduce.
It wasn't even that bad. I never saw it, but it looked more or less as I'd imagined it might. What's the problem? A lame quip, acrobatics, electric blasts and webbing. The Insy Wincy Spider part was slightly amusing. What was wrong with it? To his credit, Jamie Foxx was less shit than I expected him to be.
Name a sole reason to produce, write, act, direct, spend money on a product like this
It was a kick to the face of the original fanbase of comic books and to 'misfits' and nerds and people that have actual problems. By fucking chads that were spiderman and his friends. It was marketing strategy.
Did you see the sentient blob of unseasoned, undercooked bread pudding they cast as MJ?
I would've looked for any way out of that kiss, too.
>Dropped a reunion with Peter's father for Paul Giamatti screaming I AM THE RHINO
They shouldn't. Superhero comics are just adolescent power fantasy at their core; there is no example of subtlety in any issue of Spider-Man. All things are are as boisterous and flamboyant as possible, very similar to a gay pride parade.
If a character is sad they immediately cry. If a character is angry their veins bulge and shadows appear over their eyes. If a character laughs they lose all physical control of themselves and contort. The panels of a typical comic book are so ridiculously overdone it could never translate onto film.
>best part of the movie
>only actor with any sense of self awareness about the garbage he's starring in
If anything, classic Dane DeHaan humiliated himself by putting on that terrible GG costume and those fake fucked up teeth. Or Jamie Foxx did with every single thing about Electro.
Ever heard of mortgages?
Poor bastard has married a goddamn jew and got it pregnant too.
If the bitch decides to divorce, he's going to be up to his neck in alimony. Brendan is going to be smalltime compared to how bad Paul is gonna get fleeced.
It is the worst of the Spider-Man movies but it has its moments.
>He only said it once, you guys are the ones who can't shut up about it and constantly talk about when Garfield is brought up.
We are sick of kikes like him shoving the gay/interracial agenda in our faces.
