Things I Like: Gwen Stacy (Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3)

I thought Gwen Stacy was a rather odd character to mix into Spider-Man 3. In the comics, she was Peter Parker’s first major girlfriend, and her death shattered him greatly. In this one, the two had never really met before. But she becomes Spider-Man’s “biggest fan” when he saves her life. And as the daughterContinue reading “Things I Like: Gwen Stacy (Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3)”

Loki (TV Series) Season 1 Review

When Disney announced all kinds of Marvel shows coming to Disney+, Loki was the one that interested me the most. We thought we all saw the end of Loki during Avengers: Infinity War, but it’s hard to get rid of the God of Mischief. The movie takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. InContinue reading “Loki (TV Series) Season 1 Review”

Things I Like: J. Jonah Jameson (Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man Trilogy)

J.K. Simmons nailed this role so good that I don’t think Marc Webb wanted to try to touch it in the next era of films. He’s exactly what I remember from the comics/cartoons. He’s a vain owner of the Daily Bugle, a NYC newspaper that somehow has some kind of journalistic standards. But he usesContinue reading “Things I Like: J.

Things I Hate: Flint Marko/Sandman (Spider-Man 3)

Sandman was never my favorite villain in Spider-Man lore. He’s an odd choice for Spider-Man to fight and this version didn’t help my opinion of the character. In the movie, he’s a low-level thug who somehow gets the power to turn himself into sand and use that superpower to be even bolder than before. AndContinue reading “Things I Hate: Flint Marko/Sandman (Spider-Man 3)”

Things I Like: Peter Parker/Spider-Man (The Amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2)

Out of the three actors who have been Spider-Man in major films, Andrew Garfield was my least favorite. But I still liked him and I think he did a good job. His origin story is the same blah-blah-blah as you’d expect. As Spider-Man, he certainly was more comical than Tobey Maguire’s version, but in aContinue reading “Things I Like: Peter Parker/Spider-Man (The Amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2)”
