just saw it last night...WOW i was blown away. its much easier to follow than the previous movies, and of course, john powell scores the movie so nicely. everything is perfectly tied up, and it has some of the best action sequences ive ever seen in a movie.

very very well done. 10/10.

thoughts?

One thing that really bugged me about that movie was the goddamn shaky camera. I hate shaky camera. Only one director is allowed to have his camera-men use it..and that's Spielberg ONLY. I have yet to see any movie anywhere besides Saving Private Ryan that made solid use of that otherwise very lame technique.

Legally Blonde 2 kicks Spider-Man 3 to the curb. Spider-Man 3 was a turd.

And I like those kind of movies...

I wish I had walked out. I kept hoping for SOMETHING good about it, and it just wound up being terrible. I have no clue what people see in that movie who say they like it. Usually I can just chalk it up to not being "my kind of movie", but that IS my kind of movie, and it was just awful.

That being said, yes, Bourne Ultimatum was excellent.

a lot of movies kick spiderman 3's ass so that's not saying much.

but yes, ultimatum was awesome.

The whole Spitderman trilogy is a POS so it's not difficult to beat. Bourne is absolutely fucking awesome though. It's a shame Bourne can't stamp on Peter Parker's face repeatedly in the next one.

I thought it was great, the shakey camera work was still annoying, but a bit more tolerable than in supremecy.

One annoying thing was that Jason Bourne apparently developed a super power at the end of the last supremecy and uses it heavily in ulimatum: Complete immunity to car crashes.

you know a fight sequence has some impact when the audience collectively reacts with grimaces and "ooohs" and "aaahs" as if they (the audience) were actually being hit.

:thumbsup:

At least when you give your mancard to see Spidey, you'll get it back at the end of the movie.
