Star Wars Episode II vs Spider Man. - Page 2

post #41 of 47
Will watch both although there are already VCD copies fluctuating through the net.

BTW, on Thursdays I pay 3.50 EUR for each movie in Germany's biggest cinema including DTS sound and THX-certification, which is 3.20 USD

I'm sure AotC will do very well. If George Lucas took "Plan 9 from Outer Space" and re-released it as "Star Wars: Plan 9 from Outer Space" it would gross $300 million before anyone noticed. It will probably set a record or two, despite the Lucas trademarks of wooden acting and inept dialog (there are exceptions to the latter, but they're few and far between). It will not compare to Empire, because that film was actually written and directed by people who can write and direct. I have no intention of seeing AotC, myself, but I'm sure that won't matter a bit.

On the other hand, I am going to go see Spidey, and I'm glad it's done as well as it has.

The more I see of AotC the more it looks like it sucks. For example the girl from The Professional is doing this thing where she has to duck under some thing that will smash here. All I can think is that they put it in there because they think it will make a good segment in the video game to come out. Like the pod race. No reason to put it in there but ... future marketing of other products.


Star Wars is a business not a movie.

It will suck but not as bad as AI.

Uh, right. I don't exactly see how that will be a good part of a video game, but whatever. That's a rather minor part of the movie compared with the parts they didn't show.

Hmm, $223M in two weekends! (9 days) Spidey has legs!

And all my friends who have seen the bootleg of AotC say it's just TPM all over again, except for the major battle scene we see in the trailers.

Spider Man will break $400M, and AotC is in trouble...What are people going to watch when they can't get into AotC? Spider Man...

8 of them, apparently.

No surprise there, really.
