Webcomic: Why I can't go see 'Spider-Man 3'


PvP - Movie Adultery

This classic from PvP explains the concept of movie adultery, which is what will prevent me from seeing Spider-Man 3 this weekend, even though I'll be on an all-guys road trip with a high geek quotient. Those of you who are married to fellow movie fanatics will understand.

I spent a week in Vegas (for Network+ certification) and ended up watching "The Invisible" because anything else I wanted to see, my wife and kids also wanted to see.

She doesn't drag me to the theater, and I don't drag her to the race track.

All I can say is "You lucky, lucky man that you can't go see the abomination of bad acting, poor scripting, and general hack job that is Spiderman 3". Oh, and did you want a review of it for Geekend?

Just be sure to mark your [spoiler] [/spoiler] sections. I've already got a rep for being impossible to please at the cinema. A review from someone else would have more credibility. ;)

The preview for Spidey 3 was absolutely atrocious, if your IQ is high enough that you can discern trickery called special effects splashed on an obviously badly scripted, badly acted ordeal. I didn't see the movie, and I don't plan on contributing a cent to that debacle. Seeing what they did with Venom (via Preview, again) was enough to convince me they dropped the ball, again. When Spidey stopped a train with webbing and his ARMS in the second movie, I was done with him and cinema. Here's hoping Transformers isn't a total joke.
