As sad as this may sound, I have just watched Spiderman roughly a week ago, while most of the people I know have already watched it and complaining and trashing it like the movie should have gotten the worst movie award of the year or something. Seriously, it is really that odd having heard so many lousy comments on that innocent movie, after all, don't you think it has become a trend for many finale of trilogy-movies to be reviewed rather, harshly? Matrix, X-Men and of course LOTR. I think I stand alone on the LOTR 3 part, but never mind.
Robin, Cynthia, Alicia and Ryan
Of all the expectations and hype building up over the year, I decided to join Cynthia and her gang for Spiderman 3 on that very same Sunday I went to have a heavy brunch with church friends. Do not get me wrong, I am not exactly a huge fan of Spiderman, I do read a little of the comics, watched the animated series there and here, and somehow, I do know the basic plot of the entire Spiderman world. This is me, not really a Spiderman fan, but just curious to see it myself what other people have seen. How bad can a movie be, right?
You know what? I thought the movie was rather good. No offense to those who think it sucked, but I honestly think the movie did not do any worse than the previous movies, but it did not do much better either. The tempo and style were faithfully maintained, and same formula was used throughout the movie. Stunning graphics, good actions, girl makes boy cry, girl likes another boy, boy becomes depressed, girl becomes evil, love seems miserable, good vs evils struggle, you name it, the usual superhero movie cliche themes. And after all that, the hero will always save the day. How unsweetly predictable.
I shall not move on to a full review, since I am not really a movie person. I like the fact that the movie stayed true to many of the features originated from the comics, such as the venom part of the story. Am I the only one who thinks the Venom is really cool and adorable? Hmmm... The black costume is sexy too. I was kind of looking forward to the part Peter and Mary got married, but much to my annoyance, it never came to be. Gaaaarrhh !!
Nevetheless, I did enjoy the movie. Ok, you can flame me later, but continue reading first.
And what was more? I had a great company with me. Kian, Cynthia and their friends, Alicia and Ryan whom I have met for the first time.
After the movie, we went to a Chinese Restaurant at Northbridge for dinner.
And after filling out stomach sinfully, we headed for a refreshing cup of Bubble Tea each at Utopia. Aaaahhhhhh...... the next picture is for you Dabido !!
Slurrp !! Man, I think I will need another cup very soon.
No, that was just a drink. And next, we had desert.
Alright, I think I am not gonna eat out for the next month considering how much I have spent that night.
It was a long, long Sunday for me, started early at Church, and ended up with Spidey and after Spidey activities. Now this incidentally reminded me of another blog entry which I have done long long time ago.
Spider Black Widow
Please, take a look for those of you who have not seen it before. It is one of my favourites.
