On being unimpressed…

A good friend of mine started a new blog dealing with film, sci fi, action, fantasy, etc, and it’s pretty good stuff! I really enjoyed this article which looks at what we should expect from our chosen geek entertainment.

Here is a good quote:

“One glaring example of this was the crane disaster sequence in Spidey 3. It was bigger than any building rescue scene we’ve seen so far in the trilogy. The FX were more seamless than ever. Spidey had more obstacles to surmount. There were people screaming and webs slinging. So why did it feel so empty? Because it existed for its own sake.”

It’s a great read and worth checking out.
