Movie Reviews

This is a review of the blu-ray set and not the movies...
Dante V. de Jesus | Montgomery, AL United States | 04/18/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"...since the movies in the trilogy deserve their own reviews and have been done to death already. The low cost (even lower by $10 since I bought it) is what motivated me to buy this blu-ray disc set. I already have the special editions of all three Spiderman movies on DVD, so I wanted to see what blu-ray would bring to the home theater table, having recently bought a PS3. True, the picture quality is awesome and the audio certainly will blow you away. However, there are hardly any special features - only the third disc has any to speak of. This is an underwhelming effort, considering the massive amount of space availalble on blu-ray discs. Compare, for example, the featurettes and even mini-movies on "I Am Legend".

One thing I discovered about audio selection: if you choose PCM and your receiver is not capable of processing uncompressed signals (my Onkyo only does HDMI pass-through), all you'll get is simulated surround (e.g. Dolby ProLogic). So I ended up with 5.1 and although it may not be true HD, it's good enough for my 7.1 setup. But if you're an audiophile you would have known about this already.

My summary - HD picture quality: a strong 4 stars, audio quality and options: 4 stars, special features: a dismal 1 star - hence the overall 3 star rating. I guess for the price, this set is not too bad, but considering the wealth of possibilities for the Spiderman franchise, it fell short of my expectations."
The magic of blu ray

"Anyone looking to purchase this trilogy is already a fan of the SPIDERMAN movies and wants to know how they stand up in the magic of blu ray. We all know that the original SPIDERMAN was an amzing film - a rare treat of exemplary action with superb acting for a change. Tobey Maguire and cast finally brought to the comic action movie acting ability that made the film believable. With Tobey Maguire was born Peter Parker/Spdiderman. We also know that with SPIDERMAN 2 the same cast and crew came together with a film that far surpassed the hugely succesful and critically acclaimed original to be the best in the trilogy. All that was good in the first was raised many notches. SPIDERMAN 3 was still a good film but certainly not a match for 1 and 2. Very enjoyable but a little lackluster in comparison.

Now for the blu ray test. All I can say is AMAZING. The source they are working from on the original is not as superb as the other two which makes the picture quality slightly grainy in its 1080p hd presentation. But this in no means is a bad thing. It is still a very vivid picture with blacks and colors strongly presented. You quickly get used to the slight grain and the film becomes the best presentation you will ever see of it. With SPIDERMAN 2 the caliber raises. All grain is gone and the picture remains crystal clear and vibrant throughout. All fight/action scenes are awesome and the entire film will leave you breathless. SPIDERMAN 3 has a picture of the great quality the same as the second film and it helps immensely to raise the quality of the film itself much higher for you will be in awe watching the richness and awe striking special effects.

With all three films the English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio is of the highest quality. Dialogue is strong and crisp with all speakers in strong, heavy use for action sequences and it seems even the smallest scenes manage to work the rear speakers which is rare. These three films are at their best here and perfectly made for the high standards of blu ray. You cannot imagine how great these films appear in blu ray till you actually see them for yourself. You will never be able to view them another way again.

I do agree that the only flaw with this set is the absence of substantial special features. They do provide the 2nd disc with SPIDERMAN 3 that is all features but do not have it for SPIDERMAN 1 or 2. Having all this would have made the set perfect. So it is not perfect but it still cannot make me lower my 5 star rating for the blu ray presentation of these films is exemplary.

If you are developing a blu ray library and love these films this SPIDERMAN HIGH DEF BLU RAY TRILOGY is a definite must. Highly recommended."
The Ultimate Superhero Trilogy!

"Let there be no doubt that this trilogy set is the best of the superhero genre. Spider-Man is one of the top selling comic book characters in the world, and for more than forty years he remains one of the most beloved superheroes of our time. I have grown up reading the spider-man comics as well as watch the early 90s Saturday morning cartoon, then when news cames that a live action picture was slated to come out; I was eager to be one of the millions to bare witness the Amazing hero coming to life on the silver screen. After the success of the first film, then came the sequels, which were able to outdo the achievement of the original film. I have to be honest that I think the second film was an astonishing piece of work, because it stood more to the hero's alter ego rather than going into the web-swinging action. Spider-Man-The Motion Picture Trilogy is a must own for every movie lover. No collection is complete without this pure spun gold set piece."
Great, nice Set.

"I, like everyone else already saw the films prior to this release. Sometimes it takes me a while to watch films. I bought this set when it was first released and all that I did was to preview them. That is, I looked at the picture quality and sound quality. They are both excellent! I still have not watched them through on BD, but I saw enough to give the highest marks.

I only speak on BD quality, not the films. If I must, then I would say that the Mary Jane being caputred and held as bait should not be the plot point for all three films, but it is. In the comic books, Spiderman did not spend any where as much time with Mary Jane as in the movies. She was hardly ever involved with exploits. I hope that the next film reduces Mary Jane's role, does not have the villian holding a Gwen Stacey hostage as bait for Spiderman(it will kill the series), and it would not be a bad ideas to follow the comics and have Spidey battle non-traditional Spidey foes such as Dr. Doom, The Punisher (that would have been a good way to tie-in a NEW Punsiher film - think!) or the Leader.

This set is a must buy and is probably (along with Casino Royale and politics) why Blu Ray won the war."
