Spiderman 3 Goes Emo *Spoilers*

Yeah, it's been a month, I know. But I've been busy with work and getting home and attempting to unpack all my stuff. I did, however, make progress today. Go me! I found my carpet.

ANYway, I saw Spiderman 3 the day it came out. Not at midnight, but at 8pm. First of all, conditions were terrible. I love my movie theatre in Brighton, but there were far too many children there that night. Plus, I didn't get to sit in the back row, center, with my feet on the seat. I am being slightly sarcastic.

Anyway, I'm not going to go into extensive detail about the movie, mostly because I don't want to relive it.

It wasn't THAT bad. The graphics did give the movie some redemption. The Sandman was awesome. His transformation was one of my favorite parts of the movie.

However, the worst part of the movie was right after Peter gets consumed by that black shit. When he realizes he's evil and he looks in the mirror, he did the dumbest thing ever. He forcefully pulled his bangs in front of his face, giving himself that "emo" look.

My date and I burst out laughing.

**I would also like to interject here that we made a facebook reference during the movie. Someone asked Peter how his relationship with Harry was, and Peter said "It's complicated." Our response: "Like on facebook."

Anyway, so we laughed during that part. The next worst scene was when he bought the suit and danced down the street like a douche bag, pointing at girls and snapping. Then there was the completely ridiculous scene in the cafe with the piano. I couldn't contain myself, and I laughed through that whole scene as well.

After his display as a complete douche, he then sits on a church spire, in the rain. And later, huddled in the corner of his apartment.

Thank god he comes to his senses and comes back to the real world.

When the movie (thankfully) ended, I thought about it, and realized how much the "emo" "culture" has an effect on the rest of the world. The made their presence in a movie. I fear to think of what's going to happen in movies to come. Is Jack Sparrow going to suddenly start listening to Fall Out Boy? Let's hope not.

That's all I have to say on this matter.
