    I want to see Avengers aaaaaaaaaaaaaand The Dictator aaaaaaaaaaaaaand Prometheus aaaaaaaaaaaaaand Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter aaaaaaaaaaaaaand Spider-Man aaaaaaaaaaaaaand The Dark Knight Rises aaaaaaaaaaaaaand Total Recall aaaaaaaaaaaaaand maybe Neighborhood Watch.

    Actually, summer next year looks kind of gay. Wonder who'll be the first caller to go "I was watching a movies, and saw a commercial for a movie called Ted and it reminded me of you little Jimmy." *show grumble grumble grumble* *Travis says it's made by Seth MacFarlane* *Suddenly it becomes the greatest movie ever created*

    I don't see why you need 5 pages. There's only one movie coming out next year that matters. I guess you could put a description on Page 1 and then just put pics of Scarlet Johanssen's ass on the next 4 pages.

    Edit - I didn't think anything could make Spiderman seem less appealing than it already did. There is literally nothing in this paragraph that doesn't fill me with rage. I'll highlight all the words and phrases that make my fandango-sense tingle

    I know some folks will see it out of a weird sense of obligation. But does anyone want to see it? For real?

    And I guess I do want to see that Non Prequel Non Alien Kind of Alien Kind of Prequel Alien Prequel. And I'll see the Dark Knight to finish the series, but I actually do agree with Fezzie that leaving the Riddler out and putting Bane in is a puzzling move that will really make it tough for them to keep the realism they've striven so hard for.

    One more edit - Anyone that sees Total Recall should be shot and killed. Anyone that doesn't see the Expendables 2 should be arrested for treason.

    Emma Stone is hot as fuck, but not as a blond, and she just can't pull off Gwen Stacey the way she was portrayed in the comics.

    My beef with "And" is that if you're doing a character driven piece, which they say they are, cluttering it up with multiple Bad Guys probably won't be a good idea. So ANY second bad guy is a bad idea. The "Proto-Goblin" or whatever the fuck that is supposed to be just sounds awful. If you have to do a goblin and you don't want to do the fucking Green Goblin. Do the god damn mother fucking Hobgoblin and be done with it.

    My beef with 27 year olds playing 17 year olds should be obvious, but if more explanation is necessary:



    And fuck "Again" because we've seen Uncle Ben get shot and killed.

    Unless you think the director of 500 days of summer is going to pull something like this off, which was a huge improvement over the original "Dance with the Devil in the pale moonlight" nonsense:

    I so wanted to see Sam Rami's Lizard

    Aside from those 1st couple of McFarlane issues of Amazing Spider-Man, I've always hated Venom
    While I liked the black costume, I hated the symbiote living alien costume thing

    Aliens, supernatural, & mutants with god like powers make for lazy & uncreative writing

    Even after seeing Andrew Garfield's performance in The Social Network, I still have no desire to see the new Spider Man movie.

    Lock me up for treason then. After the first Expendables, I have no desire to see that movie either.

    I love comics but with the way some studios choose to portray certain characters in over complicated, character heavy (when characters have no reason to be in the movie) versions that don't make any sense I rather they just stay in the comics. I dont think spiderman needs to be remade so soon either. Hes bitten by a spider and gets powers, you need a new origin story to sum that up? You can wiki his fucking story, just make a spiderman movie.

    Have you seen any of her performance? Do you even know their take on Gwen Stacey?

    As for complains about AND and AGAIN I tried to make it sound like you had a problem with those words irrespective of what they were referring to.

    Why did Spidey's sense not go off when what's his face attacked him from behind? Still love Woodhouse.


    When it was announced that Webb was directing, I expressed my displeasure. It's a gigantic and possibly career retarding leap to go from one small romantic comedy to mega-budgeted action franchise. And the teaser didn't really give me a sense of why this is different from the Raimi films.

    Also the Expendables sucked, and I can't see any reason why to bother with Expendables 2.

    Venom? His spidersense doesn't work on the symbiote suit because it evolved a way to bypass it when it was attached to him for a while. Thats in the comics atleast.

    He wasn't Symbiote Spider-Man yet. And I was referring to Harry Osbourne, hence my Woodhouse comment.

    I knew I couldn't be alone on this one. MIB is one of those silly movies you just have to watch whenever it's on, no matter how much it stinks.

    I'm a sucker for Tommy Lee Jones. Will Smith when hes not doing a soft shoe and shucking and jiving around the movie set hes pretty decent. "Awww hell naw!" Lines like that make my stomach turn in knotts.
