This is the worst film iv ever seen in my life!   Monday, March 22, 2004 (11:20 p.m.) 

This is most definately the worst film i have ever set eyes on!

right are u all ready for this, here goes!

1. Danny Elfman was the wrong choice to do the score for this film, the music wasnt too far from Batman, is it just me or did the music sound ever so similar!
They should've got John Williams, he wouldve digged it.

2. Casting is the worst casting iv ever seen. Toby Maguire is spiderman? i dont think so! he was way too boyish and geeky, and above everything else he was a lousy actor, especially in the emotional and love scenes he sucked. Oh and i think his too young as well, and his hair wasnt right, oh and his abit short.
Kirsten Dunst wasnt right either, this is a big budget film, huge expectations, i dont think she was attractive enough, you want a higher ranked actress who could also act abit better. Willem Defoe? Now that really takes the piss! for starters his too old, you want someone young and athletic, acting wasnt a problem here but the script destroyed him. Moving onto Johnson the newspaper boss, ok good lookalike but why did he act so overboard! i knw his supposed to be overcrazed but it got way too camp and you couldnt take him seriously.

3. The special effects sucked, it didnt luk real point black! At one point it gt so ridiculous that when spiderman was speaking, the mouth didnt move now whats that all about,just goes to show they didnt take it seriously after all. Why didnt they have a stuntman in a spiderman costume swinging from a crane or something, think how real it would've looked! im sure if they put there minds to it, they could've made it work

4. The Dialogue was not right, script was lousy and the story was too camp! ok the film is directed to kids, fair enough but it wasnt good enough.

Look at films like Superman and Batman, there both epics! Superman remains in my book as the greatest superhero adaptation of alltime. why didnt the makers of spiderman learn from these films. Even the original incredible hulk had great cinematic elements, this film could've been so much better!

Thank you.

I am kinda sick of people making fun of this movie and score saying it sounds like Batman, I barely heard anything at all that sounded remotly like Batman. Even if it did, how could he have NOT had it sound like Batman, its a similar type of movie. Williams would have been an in appropriate choice too b/c he doesnt have the gusto anymore to do this kinda thing. Maybe 10 years ago. He has had his time of greatness and now I think its time he retire, simply b/c he is old. Sorry folks.

I meant that Williams would NOT have been the appropriate composer...sorry

wow, what the hell is stuck up your ass?

1. elfman was fine. john williams- i have nothing against him but his music is to "light" in a sense. howard shore should have done this, in my opinion.

2. casting. how can you hate a movie because of an actor's hair or height. come on get a grip. and kirsten dunst not hot? i think you're gay.

3. special effects sucked? yeah...right. you try swinging from a crane. think of how gay it would have looked. it just looked artificial because he's a superhero w/ unnatural abilities. and the whole mouth thing- he had a mask on you idiot. how can you see if your mouth moves with a piece of fabric over it?

4. dialogue? some of the best quotes i've ever heard came from aunt may herself. and it wasn't directed for kids either

and frankly, no one gives a damn about 'your book'

1. Please learn how to type.

2. Have you EVER read the comic? Peter WAS a geek, Jameson was a blowhard, Osborn was the father of his friend so he was older, etc. Ignorance is no excuse, read up on a subject before you bitch about it.

3. I don't think Elfman is a Super-Hero movie god, but he did an okay job. I might have preferred another composer, but I can't think of any who would have been a 100% sure thing. Jerry Goldsmith is hot and cold. Horner doesn't have the magic anymore, and Williams may or may not have given us something good.

4. Since you are nothing but negative, I could just call you a troll and move on, but I'm in a good mood.

First of all....spiderman/peter WAS A NERD IN THE COMICS...honestly..if youre gonna analyze something....make sure you dont do it without the knowledge of the material you are analyzing....second off...the score is perfect.....fast paced, yet original
the only thing john williams is good at is making a theme, he could have never done as good a score as this.
and william defoe was freakin made for this role

OMG!

Are u fu^$$king sirios?! That movie was awesome!

1. The Score was awesome! Great sound for emotional scenes and action scenes!

2. The acting was great! Well it was o.k. THe scene with Peter taking pix of M.J was a bit ghetto! The poses MJ took were kinda gay looking and the Goblin's dialouge were alright.

3. The script was fine and well done!

4. And fourth peter was being picked on like a dork and he did try his best to play his role!

5. THe Special Effects were great! What the fu&^k were you talking about! They can't put another actor on a crane and move him through the city you dumbass! They put him on a crane in the studio behind a green screen!

6. Sam Raimi was a fan since he was a kid and I don't think he would of made his favorite hero look like [bleep!] on screen! The movie followed by Spiderman 2 was great!

7. The movie got four stars and [bleep!] like that!

8. So don't say the movie sucked!

9. If u don't like it than don't see it ever again!

Thanks
