Ooooooh ... I find that it's a bad idea to get too jacked before a movie comes out. Lowered expectations = less pain when Hollywood crap kicks you in the nuts. It's like a psychological athletic supporter.

Spiderman should be good though. I will definately see it unless the critics tear it a new one when it comes out.

Since Kirstin Dunst is in it, as a matter of policy I HAVE to see it.

Interesting casting with Tobey Maguire in the lead. He's never done a role I didn't like and it will be interesting to see how he'll fit into this...and how the script will fit into him.

I probably won't. It looks excellent, and I'm a fan, but I don't go to the movies very often.

Maybe now that I've got a girlfriend things will change.

I probably won't go see it at the theatre, so I'll wait till it comes out on dvd.. besides I don't like movies based on comic books that much.

I want to go see it, but i don't know if I'll get to or not. I don't really care for Kirstin Dunst that much but it should be a pretty cool movie. Besides...Spider-Man kicks

It's going to be a close call for me, mostly based on cash. Ones like this I tend to let some of my friends go see first, and if they rave about it, then I'll drop the dime for it.

Definitely. I'm also looking forward to seeing Ang Lee's version of The Hulk next year. Ang Lee...and The Hulk? An interesting combo...

Being a huge Spider-Man fan, I'll probably go see it. However I'll probably be very annoyed with all the changes they make to the Spidey story, esp. the organic webbing. UGH!

Unfortunately I won't be able to see it opening day and maybe not opening weekend at all since I'll be too busy drinking, smoking Maker's Mark cigars and recovering from Derby. I might go see it on the following Monday since I also have to take that day off to recover.

Funny that it takes 2 days now to recover from the fastest two minutes in sports. Of course, the drinking marathon actually begins on Thursday, and the intake of probably 10% of the alcohol and 75% of the tobacco that I'll have in one year is crammed into one 3-day period probably has something to do with it ;-)

All of that nonsense being said . . . I'm excited about the movie being a huge comic book fan and a Spider-Man fan in general. However, I'm not liking what I've seen of the trailers so far other than the special effects. I'll try to block out my Spidey lore when I see the movie, but it will probably be VERY difficult and hurt my enjoyment of the movie. Of course, I enjoyed the hell out of X-Men, so there is hope.

I'm gonna pass this one up. I like Sam Raimi and all, but that scene in the trailer, where Aunt May is in a hospital bed and she says something to the effect of, "You're not Superman" to Tobey and Tobey gets this look on his face like "D'oh!", convinced me it's a rental.

I'll probably go see it in June sometime. It definitely has the look of a "gotta-see-it-on-the-big-screen" flick, but I'll wait a while for all the fanboys to get it out of their system. Maybe I'll see it on a school night...

These are also my *exact* thoughts about Episode Two, which I saw the new trailer for before "Panic Room" (which was about 932 different flavors of awesome, BTW.) I think the only movie I'm really fired up to see that I've seen the preview for is "The Bourne Identity," which looks very cool.

What's odd is that I thought that was the best part of the trailer. Granted I'm a spider-man freak and I'd go see it even if it was complete crap, but that trailer made it look like a must watch and actually ended on a cool note (that being the Superman line).

I used to watch The Chinese Web and the Deadly Dust all the time after they got around to putting them out on video. I haven't seen either in maybe...15 years or so? Geez. I miss that badass web cartridge belt.

I'm sure I'll go see the Spider-man movie, even if I think casting Willem Dafoe, who looks like the Green Goblin, then covering his face with a full mask is pretty dumb. As long as they have him do the "flips around on a horizontal flag pole into a perch, then shoots a web and swings off" thing, how bad can it be?

I do think Ang Lee would have been a better Superman director than The Incredible Hulk, though. Which is to say I'd rather see him direct a Superman movie than a Hulk movie. I'm sure the Hulk could direct a Superman movie just fine.

Sounds and looks like a rental to me.

The Bourne Identity was the best of the books - hope they don't screw it up for the big screen. Off to imdb.com to check the leads.
