To be clear:
You mean the finding of the bag with the spider suit, or the discovery by Aunt May, or both?

I think it's cool that the secret identity is kind of being semi-retired by the Marvel characters, or by the writers these days.
IronMan's no longer got a secret identity, and several know about who Spidey is, too.


But that sort of obviates any need for the costumes...except that the super hero is now as much the costume as it is the person inside the costume, at least
in the case of IronMan and to an extent the new Spidey.

I meant the moment
where he saves the Vulture from dying. Spidey has always been about never letting his villains die no matter how bad they are.And the last few movies have always had Spidey letting the villains die.


Also the nice homag
e to the rubble scene from the comics. Well not a homage but more as a direct reference.

Ah, yes! I didn't think of that as at the end, but you're right. That is more typical Spidey. A return to "true form" as it were.

I think the most recent Spider Man comics I've read would be most of the compilation volumes of Ultimate Spider Man, which the local library system has, and that's been years ago.

Ultimate Spider-Man is so good. I like that they pulled from that series as a main inspiration for this movie.

Trying this to see if the Photobucket files from a Rematch post will show up in this thread...

And they do not. The message "It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. Please verify that the URL you entered is correct." comes up for each new image that is in the post.

Post Re: The Crew - If you think you're part of it, then you are.

I saw Wrath of the Titans (2012) in the theater when it came out. I thought the 3D was awful, the story cluttered and incomprehensible, and I swore off ever seeing the remake of Clash of the Titans (1981, 2010). The first one had Bubo to un-recommend it, and the second one had a terrible sequel that did the same!

A few weeks ago, I bought the Clash Bluray 3D because it was $10. I watched it last night, and fell asleep a few times; didn't finish it. Tonight I started from the beginning, and saw the entire movie. Lord, the 3D conversion is the worst I've seen. Even worse than Wrath! I now understand why people said they hated 3D films, if this is what their experience of it was. EDIT: I just clicked on the awards page for the film at IMDb, and noticed that it was nominated for a Razzie in teh category "Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D." Wow, only nominated. What film won?!!? :D

When the conversion is good, it's as good as any I've seen so far. Maybe the problem is that they spent only $10 mil converting it. Maybe the problem is that 2D-3D conversion was a new thing at the time. A lot of it is sloppy, and mimics the worst of the sync errors you see in 1950s 2-strip 3D films. Anyway, because the film was made in 2D originally, I might some time watch the 2D version that came with it.

I liked the story better than the 1981 version, by the way. The Harryhausen version has beautiful stop-motion animation throughout, but I just thought it was too childish or something when I saw it in the 1990s. Bubo! Ugh! At least he got his comeuppance in the remake. Heh heh. The trailer kept me from seeing it when I was first exposed to it in 1981. I stayed away on purpose. And that was hard to do, because I practically worshiped Harryhausen and his work.

I am aware that you love Bubo. But not all of us do. ;)

Oh it was a rushed conversion. I think I remember them saying they didnt really spend any time on it when the movie came out. I remember reading on it and I think I watched in 3D and man was it bad. Here's from the Wiki.

Quote:
For the 2D to 3D conversion, Leterrier approached the studio early on about a 3D conversion, but it was expensive and very new technology.[20] After Avatar, the studio put pressure on Leterrier to convert the film. He was worried because of his previous concerns but was convinced after seeing the View-D conversion process.[21] Leterrier considered the 3D conversion to improve the viewing experience, and states that it should not be seen as a gimmick.[20]

In 2013 Leterrier said of the 3D conversion;

It was famously rushed and famously horrible. It was absolutely horrible, the 3D. Nothing was working, it was just a gimmick to steal money from the audience. I’m a good boy and I rolled with the punches and everything, but it’s not my movie

I recall reading that last line in the quotation somewhere. How Leterrier said it wasn't his film. But the source I found claimed that Leterrier wanted to make the film in 3D from the start, and the studio nixed that. The second 3D "bubble" has lasted a lot longer than the one that started in 1952.

The bad 3D conversion of Clash was one of the main reasons that my source suggested for Leterrier passing on the director's chair for Wrath. Have you heard that anywhere?

A lot of the post-converted films that I've seen or have in my collection look very good. Predator looks almost as if it were shot in 3D originally.
