beats the shit out of his childhood friend so hard he cucks himself.”
Is Spider-Man a cop?
Is the fight between Harry and Peter symbolic of the fights within
transhumanism and the false dichotomy between biological changes and
Peter is a “Spider”-Man, he relies on biological adaptation to be a
superhero and whatnot.
Harry got Buff™ using some biological agent but ultimately relies on tools
to fight Peter, requiring us to ask the question: to what extent is tool
use simple “human nature” and to what extent can it be viewed as an
augmentation that brings one beyond their humanity and into a sort of
Flint Marco turning into sand is the original Infinity War meme.
The “dancing scenes”…?
“Walk Like Tobey Maguire From Spiderman 3 down Rundle Mall”1
“Tobey Maguire from Spiderman 3”
Interview with Tobey Maguire about Spider-Man 3 brought up the scenes and
the darker side of Spider-Man in the movie2.
“[T]hat was Peter Parker dancing, not Tobey.”
“Any concern with being haunted by this role? I’m not really
concerned about it.” — Tobey Maguire from Spider-Man 3
I had another article about this3 but apparently the author of the piece
(and editor-in-chief of it’s platform) sexually assaulted people45,
like it’s the only thing that shows up when you google “Devin Faraci”
(though it’s mostly from his point of view which is bad).
Eddie Brock is an incel. This is not a question it is a statement of fact.
All of the bits where Spider-Man is being edgy, Peter is actually doing
what Eddie was trying to do but succeeding.
Flirting with Jameson’s secretary: she told Eddie to “go away” but with
Peter she reciprocated.
The staff job at the paper: Eddie got it temporarily and under false
pretenses, whereas Peter got it permanently.
Dating Gwen: Eddie claimed to have been dating her but really only went
out for coffee once and she doesn’t really like him; Peter doesn’t really
do this one well either since he takes her to the jazz cafe where MJ is
working and she notices he’s doing it to get back at his ex.
The Stan Lee (dead guy) cameo has him saying “you know, I guess one person
can make a difference,” to which I say: “we live in a society.”
Opinions of the film overall?
It currently has a 6.2/10 on IMDb6, a 59% on metacritic7, and a 63%
on Rotten Tomatoes’ “Tomatometer”8 (though we should just ignore Rotten
Tomatoes because it sucks actually9).
Dan Olson (@FoldableHuman), “The problem isn’t just “oh, people don’t get
it, they’re reading it wrong.” People don’t get it because Rotten Tomatoes
is actively misleading them. User error is the intended behaviour.”
