I like this shirt a lot. Unfortunately, the picture we took doesn't treat it properly. The red is a cool foil and it looks really sharp. I like the two tone effect. Also, I am getting totally sick of the black Venom suit and want to see more of the red suit. The funny thing is I did a search on that and found about a million posts like this one
that talk about how sick the new Spiderman movie and the black suit is going to be. This is, of course, before the horrible movie came out with emo Peter Parker, Hobgoblin on a snowboard, Eddie Brock being a teenage twit instead of a muscle head, and Sandman being the man who killed Ben Parker. Sam Raime, you betray us all.
I found this Spiderman fan video
featuring Spiderman vrs Venom that is actually well shot. In spite of the production values they managed to find two guys who both run like they are wearing spandex body suits and have something lodged somewhere. The fight scene is pretty dumb too. Overall the whole thing is fairly homo-erotic, with a bro hug at the end that is pretty leading. If that was the producers intention then cool, but I would like to point out that Peter Parker is married to Mary Jane Watson, a supermodel (Kirstn Dunst is NOT MJ Walker. Not 1/10th hot enough), as any fan of Spiderman should know. I would also like to thank the producers of this video for the double spandex crotch shot at the end. Well done, guys.
Ugh. It is so hard to be a fan of anything these days. I just found this gossip article
that talks about plans to kill off Mary Jane. What the frak (thank you BSG)? Is it so much to ask that Hollywood more or less hold true to the comic that made the license so popular? Is there no respect for anything? Granted Kirsten Dunst is kind of a dud (and under no circumstance do I ever want to hear her sing again) but just replace Dunst with someone who doesn't look and act like a Denny's waitress and move on. But no, every Hollywood egomaniac feels the need to put his or her personal stamp on it like dog marking his territory (literally).
Now I'm all angry. I started this t-shirt description in a good mood. When I conquer the planet every time I go see a new comic book movie I will have the producers and directors in the theater with me wearing dog shock collars. That way, every time they break from the story in a way that grinds my teeth I will give them a health dose of the old electricity. If they go too far off track (cough cough Wolverine Origins cough cough) I will just have them dropped into the scorpion pit. Also, for every villain they crowbar in over one, I will kill them (thank you Stewie Griffin).
Have you noticed that, not only in comic book movies, but in general movies lately have tried to get more and more characters stuck in? I think they are doing the shotgun approach; shoot as many actors at the wall in hopes that one of them will appeal to every random idiot in the country. Either that or directors just like the power trip of casting a bunch of rolls. Either way, give me a break. There are great movies out there with only a couple main characters, like Fight Club
