I was coming across my notes for my review this morning and I remembered a bitchy little comment I wanted to make that I didn’t add to the final review.

“Spider-Man is without his mask so often in this movie, the should have called it ‘Peter Parker 3’ instead of Spider-Man 3.”

Look, I realize that the first movie was raked over the coals for the totally Power Rangers-esque dialogue delivery between Green Goblin and Spider-Man during that scene on the rooftop. Lots of overexaggerated head bobs to indicate words were being spoken. I also realize that Tobey Maguire is a big star now and probably pushed for more face time. For an actor, it makes sense. But it just bugged the hell of out of me. Put on your damn mask! Staple it to your neck if you need to!

Also, can anyone explain to me what Captain Stacy and Gwen Stacy were doing at a certain someone’s funeral at the end of the movie? Were these characters ever introduced to each other? Sorry, stuck out like a sore thumb to me.

Also, total waste of James Cromwell as Captain Stacy and J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson. They were hardly in it at all. Another example of how this movie was stuffed to the gills, in my opinion – and in a bad way.
