Well, I don't have the best equipment to view Blu-ray though I will admit it was nice to see Spider-man (2002) and Spider-man 2 & 2.1 (2004) in high Definition; I have and seen Spider-man 3 in high def a while back ago. It was a gift by my brothers friend.
This quick review will deal mainly about how I feel about the new editor's cut which was pretty much long overdue, 10 years to be exact. Does it fare better than the theatrical version or should you simply stick with the very mediocre theatrical release? Let's get started!
The changes?- Peter's apology to Mr. Ditkovich is removed after yelling at his landlord to "fix the damn door!" Instead we have Peter sitting idle in his room before Ursula barges in. Peter proceeds to apologize for the incident but Ursula tells him to forget about it and informs him that M.J. is on the line.
- The line from Norman to Harry: Make him wish he were dead. First we attack his heart!" is removed. Harry just simply gives us his grin stare and that is it.
- Aunt May's forgiveness speech scene is removed entirely.
- The black suit Spider-man swinging in daylight has been re-inserted. This scene appears right after Peter gets Eddie fired. Also, in the theatrical version, when Jonah says "We haven't printed a retraction in 20 years!" the camera focuses on him and Robbie whlist this line is said as Eddie is walking out the door in the editor's cut. Therefore, the newspaper that says sorry Spidey is removed in the editor's cut.
- As a result, the infamous emo dancing scene is later in the film.
- There are extra scenes of Peter falling into temptation using the Black-suit. His smile just says it all.
- The Peter/Harry fight starts off different. In the theatrical version, Peter web slings off camera into the room while the editor's cut reveals him to already be lying in the same chair where Norman died. Some of the dialogue is different as well. After Peter scars Harry, the dancing scene starts here.
- The famous Sandman being a sandcastle for Penny has been re-inserted. However, there is no Venom alternative seeking him scene here.
- The infamous Butler telling Harry that Norman killed himself is removed; After sending Peter away, Harry picks up a cracked frame pic of him, Peter, and M.J. He sheds a tear thinking about his broken friendship.
- The music is different in some scenes.
According to this website: There are two more changes which is listed under Minor changes section.
Both involves Sandman though the changes are really minor which I guess I didn't notice in the first place.
