Face Front, True Believer! Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man swings in for his, what, sixth international major motion picture release? Not counting the Italian one or the Japanese one or the TV shows that got repackaged as movies or any other random stuff? And this is the second reboot for a third proposed trilogy? Illegal Machine was so excited that he stayed home and let Pekita Trotamundos take his place alongside Diabolu Frank & Mister Fixit! Even with Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, Stan Lee and more making appearances? Boy, this one must really be something! And we’ve got the Mighty Marvel Mailbag, with Pekita playing Flo Steinberg (no subtitles, sorry)! Excelsior!

  1. Just typed “Rolled Spider Podcast”, ooops!

    Well, I liked the film a lot. As a post-Crisis fiend, I enjoy a good remix, but more than that, the film was thematically very solid. It was about CONSEQUENCES, and that’s what Spider-Man is all about. Without ever saying the “With great power…” line or showing Uncle Ben dying as a result of Spider-Man’s inaction, it gets that point across again and again. Further, though yes, the problems are caused by the hero’s actions (biting off more than he can chew, putting ego before safety), I deeply appreciate that this wasn’t about a boss fight, or any fight (Spider-Man doesn’t win any), it’s about SAVING PEOPLE (even villains). I love that, especially in the superhero film genre where people, especially villains, are so disposable.

    Could have been tighter, might have cut out some gags, and is it me or does Robert Downey Jr. phone it in at times?, but for me, the twists were excellent, the performances were on point, the set pieces original, the whole thing was a lot of fun.

    Pekita made me laugh by calling an earlier comment deep, by the way. Once an English lit major, always an English lit major, I guess.

  2. siskoid…..I (Mac or “Maq” in French) I still haven’t seen the movie. I felt Frank spent the entire episode basically praising the movie but then immediately following up that praise with “I didn’t like it” which leads me to believe that he’s full of bullshit.
