If they would go small and intimate like some of the comic book stories, that would be the way to go.

They won't, of course.

I'm just stunned by this "team think" going on.  It's the Batman franchise all over again.  These absolute shit movies with half a dozen big boss bad guys squeezed into a two hour script.  I've asked this question before in this thread...what's the thinking?  Why?

I'm with you.

The Lizard would be a fantastic villain to do a smaller scale superhero film. His story has some creepy, but very human elements to it.

Remember how Hollywood profiteering works. You want to get the most bang for your buck with as little risk as possible. Spider-man, for all intents and purposes, is risk-free. The prevailing business wisdom from then on out is that making a bigger investment in it is guaranteed to draw back bigger returns.

I'm not done, but the addition of the Sandman as the "real killer" is so fucking bad. For a moment, I thought the original guy was just gonna run through there, grab Church's jacket, and then run off in a brilliant non sequitur that would have set the tone for the entire addition of the DRAMA between Spider-man and Sandman.

And then Church slowly, for no fucking reason, aims and blows Uncle Ben away. Excellent cinema.

Oh, and MJ stunningly turns from deeply in love with Peter to insecure, needy bitch. I can't say it's entirely unexpected, based on her previous behavior in the series, but I know that I'm rooting for Parker to hook up with Gwen Stacey.

It's pretty poorly structured. I'll say that.

I agree with you about the Sandman CGI. It was beautiful. Otherwise, I think Spider-man 2 is kind of better than this one in terms of overall package.
