Movie Critic

So recently I've seen more movies at the cinemas than any other time I can remember. This makes me feel I should be getting paid for a magazine to do so (hey, a boy can dream!) but anyways, I thought I might rate the movies I have seen lately.

Rating System: 1* Star Bad movie, 10* is an excellent movie.

X-Men 3 ****
Benchwarmers *******
Pirates of the Carribean 2: Dead Man's Chest *******
Click ********
Cars ***********
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift ******
Superman Returns *********

And other stuff I've watched more recently:

Trainspotting **
Nepoleon Dynamite ******
Snatch ***
Scrubs (series 1-3) **********
Fight Club **********
Billy Madison ********
Fantastic 4 *******

So apparently Spider-Man 3 will be coming out in May 2007, and already they have announced the bad guys, which gives away the plot (well the movies trace their story from the comic series and the television animated series, so no surprise there!). One of the new bad guys Spidey will have to face are The Sandman who like the name suggests can use his body as a weapon, making massive sandstorms and generally using this to his advantage, as being made of sand there isn't much that can stand in his way when it comes to a bank robbery or the such. This should be exciting because the actor chosen to play Sandman is actually a very buff looking Thomas Haden Church which is a good pick. Reprising their roles are Tobey Macguire as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson, James Franco as Harry Osborne (or maybe the New Green Goblin) and Stan Lee should hopefully pop up somewhere in this film too, he seems to play a very good mailman (see Hulk and Fantastic 4).

Topher Grace who is best known as the geek from That 70's Show is apparently in this film's list of actors, which makes me believe he fits the part of Eddie Brock, the photographer from the Daily Bugle which is made reference to in the first Spidey film. If so, this could also mean something very good which I've been wanting to see happen since the introduction of the first film, which is The Alien Costume saga.
For those who aren't familiar with this part of the Spider-Man lore, Spidey gets this weird meteorite from space (in the series) or uses this ingeneous contraption (Secret wars comics) to find a strange costume which adapts to his Spidey suit making the costume black, with a big white bug insignia on the front. But I'll leave that story there, as I hope not to ruin any of the plot for those who don't know yet (you should! roar....).
