Awesome / Spider-Man 3

  • The quality of the third movie depends according to who you ask, but you have to love the fight at the end (Spider-Man and New Goblin vs. Venom and Sandman).
  • The first fight between Harry and Peter really is among the series' best. Peter's attacked out of costume, forced to use his powers in public, and caught completely by surprise. Every trick he pulls is useless, Harry just keeps coming. Peter only escapes through a lucky move.
  • The second fight goes to Peter, newly empowered the black suit, and it is immensely satisfying, given all "Little Goblin Jr." had put him through. Gobby gets a few shots in, but the tide quickly turns in Peter's favor. He tosses that smug bastard through a window, bitchslaps him, hurls him headfirst into a railing, clotheslines him with an out-of-control glider that sends him crashing into the back wall, takes him down with one punch, and after Harry tries to kill him for the umpteenth time, Peter sends the bomb he just chucked right back in his face.
  • Symbiote Spidey's No-Holds-Barred Beatdown on Sandman was also very satisfying in it's own right, especially the part where he grinds his face into a moving train.
  • Also, Venom killing Harry. This version of Venom may have not been in the movie that long, but he managed to deal a blow to his nemesis harsher than any other incarnation of the character has.
  • Mary Jane throwing a cement brick at Venom in the third movie; chiefly awesome because FINALLY she gets to to take a shot at her kidnapper and stop being a Neutral Female Damsel Scrappy, becoming more of a Heroic Bystander / Action Survivor instead.
    • She also doesn't just wait on Spidey to save her this time around and actually jumps from the cab into the webbing when it's about to fall and dodges out of the way when any debris, including a freaking garbage truck, about to hit her. And then manages to catch a web and hang from it for a good long while.
    • Pretty much all of the final battle, though it started with Spider-Man finally back for real. From Spider-Man and Venom's aerial battle, Harry's smashing Venom through a wall and blowing up Sandman's giant sand-face, and Peter's Eureka Moment followed by him using sound to hurt the symbiote, the entire battle was just generally awesome.
      • Also, the WAY he uses sound to beat the symbiote. He doesn't just hit two pipes together. He flips all over the battlefield and creates a sound cage MADE of pipes, all while outmaneuvering Venom and just plain beating him back.
  • Admit it: Willem Dafoe's One-Scene Wonder sent a shiver up your spine.
  • Spider-Man landing in front of an American flag wearing his original costume once again while the main theme climaxes, reminding the viewer how iconic his outfit actually is and that Spider-Man is a true American icon.
  • Gwen's first reaction when she realized that Peter (under the symbiote's influence) took her to the dance to make Mary Jane jealous? Apologizing to MJ
  • While he was at times pure Narm, the scenes where symbiote-influenced Peter exposes Eddie's fraud and then tells Jameson in no uncertain terms that Jameson won't be ripping him off and will have to pay the actual value of his photos and even bargaining in a permanent staff position is undeniably awesome.
