The first two films were about Pete "b--ching and moaning" and, frankly, you seem to be doing a lot of it for somebody who doesn't like to hear it.

Yes, but I've actually talked the merits of the movie and replied to existing threads (except for the one I started, which was ok since I was the first). It's a little different than posting "Spiderman sucks" again and again. I'm not just picking on him.

For the record, I'm not guilty of fanboyism at all. I never said it was a great movie. It's my favorite Spiderman movie. It's not going to get an Oscar.

It's always been that way. The mods can back me up. If there is an open thread on an issue you do not post another one right above it. I don't really care unless it is pointless insults.

And that's better than what that group normally rates a comic movie at. As for my comment, I was talking about non-critics who saw the movie. Super hero movies always get terrible reviews from professional critics. This actually wasn't that bad.

> Well, maybe you should go somewhere else... Or even better, just don't click on messages where you know you aren't going to like/agree with the content

Listen, I'm not being unreasonable. I'm not asking people to like the movie. I'm just asking, is there really a need to make a new thread to trash the movie every few hours when other threads are directly below it? Surely, some of you would prefer to talk about the comics or maybe even specifics of the movie.

You absolutely are guilty of Fanboy-ism but that is beside the point. The point is, though I don't personally think his opinion was that well thought out it was an opinion none the less. He didn't like the focus on MJ and he thought she was annoying. That's a valid opinion.

Yes, because he was the first one to start a 2nd Spider-Man 3 thread. Up until he posted there had just been one *rhe*

Former Comic movies and their cream of the crop rating (compared to a 45% for Spider-man 3)

Spider-Man: 84%
Spider-Man 2: 95%
X-Men: 59%
X2: 81%
X3: 51%
Batman Begins: 63%
Superman Returns: 73%
Hulk: 53%

Even X3 and Hulk for gods sakes.

You are absolutely being irrational because you're attacking one person for something that tons of people are doing. More importantly, your going into threads you know you have no interest in just to make trouble in them.
