Jumped up firework display

After watching Spider-Man 3 at the weekend, I'm starting to lose hope that Hollywood will ever stop churning out shameless toy adverts instead of anything remotely imaginative, insightful or interesting. Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst shouldn't be allowed to act. Their on-screen chemistry is painfully unconvincing, and their characters even less believable than the substandard CGI effects.

I loved the original cartoon Spider-Man, so to see it butchered like this is tragic.

If you thought that was bad, try to avoid the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remake.

Difference being that the original cartoon was fairly crap too.

Is it really a remake or am I stuck in a perpetual nostalgia time-loop?

The new Transformers film, on the other hand, looks great. I also heard a rumour about a new He-Man film, starring Brad Pitt (at least he can act, unlike Dolph Lundgren).

They should do a Zoids film too, remember them?
