RE: Spiderman reboot
Dont get me wrong I don't mind a bit of a preview but this was terrible. I'm trying hard not to kiss Nolans arse here but at least with the DK and DKR previews it was just one scene that didn't take anything away from the overall movie, just serving as villain introduction for the viewers. Really feels like there's not much point now, what's the use in trying to stay spoiler and footage lite just to get fcked over like that in the cinema. Why studios feel that we need to know the entire plot go More

RE: Spiderman reboot
L: Dirk Miggler Anyones else see that god awful trailer before Prometheus. It was like 10 minutes long. why ? eah, it was utter pants. Really put me off going to see it. It gave the impression it had ended at one point and then continues on for another 5 minutes or so. Yawn!  More

RE: YES!
The effects and as said Spidey's movements are better, but I guess that's to be expected with effects progress. But I still think it looks like doesn't quite know what it wants to be. Dark edge roots movie or one with a great big lizard crushing New York?  More
