A woefully misunderstood scene from a highly underrated film. Spider-Man 3 isn’t perfect, but the unrelenting pants-shitting and whining over this scene (and while I’m being honest, the film at large) remain an enigma to me. I’ve always thought it was a hilarious take on the transgression of Peter Parker, serving as an appropriate counter-point to the “Raindrops” sequence in Spider-Man 2. Before taking the film to darker territory, Raimi decides to put us in the shoes of Peter Parker and lets us indulge in what Werner Herzog would call, “… the bliss of Evil.” Given the already light, comic-book inflected tone of the previous two films, I’m not entirely sure what else people were expecting. Peter is, after all, a complete dork at his core, so why the vein-popping anger when he acts accordingly?
Maybe you should shut your whore mouth.
Do we need to sit down and watch this movie together so I can point out to you just how unbelievably horrible everything is?
Guess what we’re doing for your birthday.
