    I know it's coming out in North America sometime in late October but the Hong Kong region 3 edition is out and is pretty much the same thing in terms of the DVD quality and special features. Bought it early this week with pics to prove here. Took some time to take a few screenshots of the DVD for those who want to see how the video fares. I'll take screenshots of the menu screens but don't expect much. Compared to the DVD releases of the first two Spidey movie on DVD, this menu screen is pretty lifeless and mute.

    The two disc set comes bundled with 2 button pins that doesn't really come in good use at all. But it was nice that they tried to give something extra. Also out on DVD early in Hong Kong is "Ocean's 13", WHV(HK)'s release comes bundled with 3 cup holders.

    I always ecpect comic book movies to be way off in terms of story but I thought the film was good for the effects. Can you tell me what extras are on the bonus disk.

    I had my problems with it but I still defended the hell out of it in all the discussion earlier in the year so I'm tired of all that. I'll just say - hey, cool, and I also would like to know about the extras

    Well, for starters, I found an easter egg somewhere on disc 2. Something about gag music or some sort. I wasn't really paying attention because I lost my glasses at Canada's Wonderland last weekend and I basically can't see a damned thing. I remember having to highlight on Spidey's eyes in order to access the hidden featurette. There was also a featurette on the music and overall sound of the film, one on Sandman and one on the love triangle aspect of the movie. There was also a retrospective look on the relationship between Harry, Peter and MJ. Several featurettes on the special effects and etc. The special features disc was pretty packed from what I see here. Probably alot more packed than Spidey 1 & 2.

    it came out in Australia last week. i would only ever buy this movie if it had deleted scenes. sadly i didnt see it listed on the back of the dvd case. so i still refuse to buy it.

    and it didnt suck arse. it was just incredably average. no wait, your right it sucked.

    It's not good or bad, as with anything, some people like it, some don't

    ...lets see the movie was indeed anti climating...I mean I remember getting out and saying ."I think harry watched too much Eureka seven"-Ill admit liking that new goblin but because to me the thing was so back to the future/ eureka seven...Ill admit also parker being mean to mary jane, and the only venom scene-there should have been more-

    this movie was weird at best and even my spiderman Fanboy couldnt enjoy it as much.... pretty much felt....hollow

    figth scenes are awesome though. Ill never deny liking them.

    haha! i was just watching the "Creating Venom" featurette and they showed how they used a huge pile of goo and try to re-create that with CG and make it look more menacing at the same time.

    btw, there are 2 commentary tracks on the DVD. gonna pick up my new glasses today but too tired to check out more of the dvd. had no sleep. i would probably pick up the north american dvd but seeing how R1 is getting the shaft on the dvd release date, i settled with the hong kong dvd instead. besides, most of my non-chinese friends don't have region-free dvd player. therefore, they cannot borrow it since they can't play it.

    I thought it was a great movie. At least as good as the first two. I really enjoyed both times I saw it in theaters.

    Spidey 3 was bit of letdown but I like it still. Won't mind owning the DVD since I got the first two already.

    Except Uwe Boll movies and Batman and Robin. Those are just bad.

    How easily you forget when trying to shove your ideals onto TFW members, Ktulu. For shame

    It was definately not the best in the trilogy. But still way better than a lot of crap movies out there. I will probably get the Blu-Ray when the trilogy releases in October. High-Def Spidey Trilogy FTMFW!!

    For attention of course. It worked, thank you :D 

    I really want to hear the commentary on this and see what Raimi has to say about some of the dodgier elements, like Pete combing his hair down in the mirror bit. Oy. I was rather let down by such things, but I'm not one of the ones crying "LAWLLL HE WENT EMO COS EYE SHADOW AND HAIR" or anything
