We finally went to see Spiderman 3 today and it was awesome! I think it is my favorite Spiderman so far (Rob still likes 2 the best) but this one just had it all for me: A great story line with the continuation of the Peter / M.J. relationship along with 4 villians — and another one of those sexy upside-down kisses!
We’ve become so spoiled from watching movies at home that we rarely go to the theater anymore. It takes a movie like this – one that has to be experienced on a large screen – to entice us to go. As soon as we arrived, we were reminded of the downside of movie theaters.
First, there’s the line to get tickets. Next, there’s the line at the snackbar (we gave up on that line since there was no way we were going to get through it before the movie started). After the movie began, the cell phone issues began. One behind us started ringing and the guy let it ring a few times and then answered it and then finally got up and walked out of the theater – still talking as he went down the aisle. A couple of rows in front of us was some guy who was too busy text messaging to be bothered with watching the movie. Naturally, every time he received or sent a text message, the cell phone screen lit up like a torch, which was really annoying.
I mean, c’mon, I realize people need their cell phones for emergencies but can’t they a least break free of them during a movie or, better yet, just stay at home to be entertained by their gadgets instead of annoying others who’ve paid for movie entertainment at the theatre?
Anyway, I’ll get off my soapbox now and get back to the point of this post… If you haven’t seen Spiderman 3 yet, I highly recommend it! Next on our Summer movie list is probably Shrek 3.
