In the end, it's the numbers that give me a smile and a restful night's dormancy.

Spiderman 3. Well, for starters, I went in thinking that it couldn't be as good as I wanted it to be, because when I was a littler boy than I am now, Venom was my favourite villain of the Spiderman world.

[rant]

BUT! It was going okay for a while, the story wasn't that good, didn't like what they did, but it was only staying about level with my expectations... AND THEN! The scene in the church, when what's-his-name-weedy-photographer-bad-guy-who-becomes-venom is sitting in the pews and is praying. This, I have no problem with, as praying is generally a good thing. The subject matter of his prayer, however, was completely and utterly wrong! But that would have been okay too, if they hadn't made it look like his prayer had been answered!!!!!!! You don't pray to the deity of your chosen religion so that they will kill some guy who happens to have humiliated you a little tiny bit, and have that said deity grant you a way to complete this prayer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ooh, that made me angry! By religious standards, I am not devout as such, bit confused, but I know for a fact that the way they portrayed that scene was unspeakably and unutterably wrong in every simgle way!!!!!!!!!!

Aye, that was an interesting (at best) dramatic turn.

I think what killed SM3 for me was Peter's song and dance number. I almost felt embarrassed to have witnessed that part.

Yeah, I think I can recall a collective 'oh dear' from when I saw it and that part kicked off.

I don't go very often into the theatre, once or twice a year, so I have been rarely disappointed. I didn't like NEM and after the LOTR hype some friends dragged my into Chronicles of Narnia and Eragon, quite forgettable movies but without any expectations there can be no disappointment.

Indeed, as I heard Tears for Fears frontman Roland Orzabal say one time in a radio interview back in 1984: "Relax, and expect nothing."
