Casting: Sandman (always a personal fave from Spidey's rogue's gallery) was spot on, and fun to watch. Almost as good casting as Doc Ock from #2. Topher Grace was a fantastic Eddie Brock. Bryce Dallas Howard really didn't do anything for me as Gwen. Tragically, not enough J. Jonah Jameson, but then again, I would totally go watch a J. Jonah Jameson movie. That's how I, in fact, roll.
Bruce Campbell cameo? Top-notch. One of the funniest scenes... until we got to the Spider-man strut. I was *cracking up,* because they just kept going with it. Simply magnificent.
I really felt like they were both wrapping up a lot of the storylines from the first two movies, and getting ready for future ventures. We get Gwen Stacy, we get another visit from the good Dr. Connors, and more. I mean, why bring in Gwen's dad, and then have someone like James Cromwell play what's effectively a glorified cameo, if you're not going to do more with him? And honestly, as long as they keep making decent movies, I hope they do keep making them. Yes, even if with some recasting.
The redemption of Harry Jr. was a bit of a surprise, since that really wasn't in the comics at all. However, it *completely* fit with the movie-verse storyline, and you know, that's perfectly fine with me. It was just a little odd, to depart that dramatically, as some other things (the church bell scene) were *exactly* from the comics.
And damn them for yet another scene with Aunt May telling a story and making me cry.
OK, I just saw how much I wrote on this movie, so, think I should wrap this up now.
