LA Times movie critic Kenneth Turan has posted his review of "Spider-Man 3."  "Certainly acceptable as a sequel to a sequel, "Spider-Man 3" misses an opportunity to be a movie that could be wholeheartedly recommended to those not already ensnared in its web. . .Though aspects of it are entertaining, the presence of all these mismatched pieces give "Spider-Man 3" an ungainly, cumbersome feeling, as if its plot elements were the product of competing contractors who never saw the need to cooperate on a coherent final product.  "We always have a choice," Peter says at one point, delivering one of this film's numerous uplifting messages. Here's hoping that the choice about whether to make yet another "Spider-Man" is based on more than the almighty bottom line."


Kim Masters, writing for Slate asks, "Will Spider-Man 3 Underachieve?"  I am going to a screening of this film tonight at Riverdale and then I'll be on KARN tomorrow morning with the real Bob Steel to talk about it.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
