Following the example set by the X-Men trilogy, the third installment of Spider-Man returns the franchise to the shithouse it started in. It's an indefensible heap of misdirected garbage. Laughable. Very, very laughable. No grace. No wit. The CGI -- which accounts for more than half the movie -- looks absurd. Bright spot? J.K. Simmons, who seems to be in his own movie (and it's a better one).
