Anyone who goes to see this movie can never biatch about a Hollywood reboot ever again, because you're the reason they keep rehashing the same old worthless shiat.

This is why movies are so lazy and shiatty. Hollywood can't make a movie that's too dumb for the foreign market.

I'm still undecided about seeing this one, but I think it looks better than the last 3.

I never heard why the movie studios decided to open films overseas first, then open it in America. Maybe it has to do with limiting piracy. But I can't wait to see this Spiderman, especially since SM3 is such a wreck. The only thing I don't want to see is another villain killed off. In the comics the villains lasted forever but in the films they just kill them off to resolve things. I was actually surprised that Joker survived in the last Batman film.
 
2012-07-01 11:03:28 AM
There is seriously no need for this movie to exist. It was made for the sole reason to keep the rights from reverting to Marvel. That's all.

Plus, not every superhero movie needs to be dark and brooding like Batman Begins.

It's not so much that foreign markets love crappy movies, it's that complex themes generally rely on cultural familiarity to be understandable. Show something like, say... Midnight in Paris to some random Chinese dude and he'll walk out thinking "What the fark did I just see?". Not because he's stupid, but because the movie assumes a lot of foreknowledge on the audience's part.

Movies like Transformers and Avatar do better because they have simple, easily-understood plots and the appeal of explosions, fight scenes and attractive women is universal.

One of the reasons Baywatch was a worldwide hit. Not much dialogue to translate, and lots of hotties running in slow motion.

I expected the Spider-Man reboot to be reach the Green Lantern or Fantastic Four level of shiatty, but according to the reviews it's not a terrible movie. So, that's a really pleasant surprise.

Of course, the quality of the marketing is infinitely more important than the quality of the film when determining box office, and this fark article is the first time I've heard about a Spider-Man reboot coming out this week. I knew a reboot was in the works, but I thought it was coming out next summer. If I haven't even heard of the movie, there's a good chance it's going to flop (because I'm the most important person in the whole world).

This movie is less an attempt at a summer blockbuster and more an obligatory Spider-man movie so Sony keeps the rights to it without having to bid on it again. It's like every season of Doctor Who having at least one Dalek episode to keep the Terry Nation estate happy.

What I can't stand about the Batman Begins trilogy (besides Bale's overwrought hoarse voice) is how seriously the movie takes itself.

I think they're trying harder than that. I've certainly seen enough trailers(online, and in theaters), and iTunes has a new Spiderman game for iPhone that they're pushing right now. I don't watch enough TV to know how much they're advertising on there.

It's a reboot, Spider-Man seems to have a sense of humor, I have Wednesday off, and there's a cheap theater in my neighborhood with a $7 matinee. I think I'm gonna go see it.

Yep, and that's why Hollyweird is releasing these things overseas first, to make their initial investment back *before* the hyper-critical US audience watches it the first weekend, rips it to shreds, and the US box office drops 80% each of the next three weeks.

He was great. But the best part of his performance was his complete unwillingness to turn into the uncontrollable murder-machine, which disappeared by the end of the movie. If he's no longer terrified of himself there's really nothing left to do a movie about.

A lot of these movies would have flopped if not for the foreign market so yes, American filmgoers seem to be more discerning. People make the obvious joke about stupid Americans but people only hear about the artsy foreign films. Hollywood is by far the best at making films, despite all the crap.

That's why it's the US's second biggest export. And that's why movies are often released in foreign markets first. It has nothing to do with pirating, if anything there's more pirated movies in other countries. It has to do with generating a buzz before it hits the US because other countries will watch anything Hollywood craps out.

Same here. I have no interest in the emo plot but the action scenes looked great, I'm going to wait for reviews but right now it's sitting at around 78 on RT and 73 on Metacritic.

Now him turning into the merged hulk or grey hulk.... that there is solid premise for a new film.
