#137: Spidey’s Got Bright Eyes

May 9, 2007

Notes from the Manager

No, I don't think Spider-Man 3 "sucks," unlike a lot of excessively vocal, whiny fanboys on the interweb. Although there are several really stupid plot points that drag down the movie for me, it was definitely fun to watch: the action is phenomenal, and most of the cheesy stuff is flat-out hilarious (I actually loved the widely-reviled Saturday Night Fever sequence). I only mention this, because every so often, I'll get an e-mail from a reader that forces me to explain (yet again) that my characters are not mouthpieces for my own opinions — even Jason, who does admittedly parrot my own opinions of movies most often, but still not all the time....

Anyway.

For more of my actual thoughts on Spidey 3, download the latest episode of The Triple Feature Talkcast, featuring myself, Tom Brazelton (Theater Hopper) and Joe Dunn (Joe Loves Crappy Movies)! This one is especially fun, because of all the back-and-forth between us. For once, none of us agreed on a movie! Joe loved it; Tom hated it; and I fell somewhere in the middle, though I definitely leaned more towards the "loved it" end of things than the "hated it" end....

Trailer Watch: The Theory of Everything trailer

Friday, August 15, 2014

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.

James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
