Corrected entry: In the scene with the Green Goblin has MJ in one hand and a sky-tram in the other, he is not attached in any way to anything else. Since the Green Goblin does not have the ability to stick to objects, the weight of the sky-tram would pull him straight off the bridge. I know he has super strength but that doesn't make him impervious to the laws of physics.
Corrected entry: The scene in the science lab, after Norman tries the performance enhancer, he is held down on the bed with metal arms. In the next scene when the other scientist runs in to see if he's alright, the metal arms aren't holding him down anymore.
Corrected entry: What exactly is the Green Goblin's plan in his last scene where he dies? By standing up, he has aligned himself between his knifed hoverboard and the brick wall, which eventually kill him, but as he controls the hoverboard and knows what is about to happen, why has he put himself in harm's way? Had it gone to plan, both he and Spiderman would be impaled. If he would have jumped it, why didn't he anyway, nothing stopped him. Whilst crazy, Goblin is a very clever character who has planned this move, so why does he stand up?
Corrected entry: The firemen don't seem to be doing anything when Spidey was saving the baby or the "screaming woman".
Corrected entry: When the Goblin first appears and starts following Spider-Man, Spidey is in the floor and shoots a web to lift, but it actually looks like the web lifts him magically without him doing anything like pull it or something else. It looks like someone pulled his web from the other side.
Corrected entry: I don't understand how Spidey is able to go back up the web, when he does the cool hanging upside down thing with the criminal who stole the money. He sort of grabs the web a bit higher and he goes straight up. He can't reel web back into himself... (00:45:40)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Mary Jane is attacked by the four thugs in the alley, there is an over-head shot of her fleeing with the thugs shouting 'Hey! Where you going, baby?' and as this is happening, we see Spider-Man running along the top of the nearby building taking his shoes off. If you put the screen on pause or slo-mo, you can see he definitely has his mask on (check out the reflective lines on his head), but seconds later when he is pulling the thugs off Mary Jane, he has his mask off. Why would he take his mask off when he wants to keep his identity unknown? (01:16:20)
Corrected entry: Peter Parker practices web shooting for the first time in his bedroom. When Aunt May checks on him the webs criss-cross the room from wall to wall. Think about it... he's shooting the webs from his wrist. What we should have seen was several strings hanging from the walls. To get the room as we see it, every time he shot a string he would have to walk to the other side of the room and attach his end to the opposite wall. Not likely. (00:32:20)
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Goblin tries to get Spider-Man to join the Goblin, the Goblin tries to convince Spider-Man that the people of the city would love to see him fail. The Goblin's exact line is: "But the one thing they love more than a hero is to see a hero fail fall die trying". Yes, the Goblin (Dafoe) says both "fail" and "fall". The line only works grammatically using the word "fall". Dafoe's voice even drops dramatically when he says "fall", and then returns to the dramatic pitch he uses in the rest of the line, as if he is expecting the movie's editor's will pick this up and edit out the word "fail".
Corrected entry: Spiderman repeatedly hits the Goblin's head at the end of their final battle. After the last punch, the Goblin's helmet is suddenly covered with dust. Where did it come from?
Corrected entry: When Peter's auntie enters when his uncle is looking for jobs in the paper, a boom microphone can be seen bobbing up and down at the top of the screen. (seen in the DVD, not in a movie theatre).
Corrected entry: Right before our favorite hero saves the young boy from being crushed at the World Unity Festival, notice the white string on his back. It's really pretty obvious. It's also in the shot right after Spiderman says "Come on, move kid."
Corrected entry: The scene where Spidey saves the baby from the fire, why is the "mother" in the street when her baby is in the apartment unattended? The baby appears to be only a few months old and if she had been out, wouldn't she have taken it with her? Her clothes and face are clean and not smoke smudged so it's unlikely she was forced out by the fire.Stuart Green
Corrected entry: When Peter is learning about his new improved eye-sight, he takes off and puts on his glasses a few times. When he puts them on, the whole screen gets fuzzy, but only what you see through the lenses should be fuzzy, not the area outside the lenses too. (00:17:15)
Corrected entry: After the battle in the burning house, Spider-Man leaves the scene with a head start. But it takes him as long to get home as the remaining Goblin needs to: Fly home (where the Goblin equipment is stashed as we know from the fireplace-scene), undress, shower, dress, take the car to drive to Peter's home, probably pick up a plum cake on the way, take the elevator (where the movie picks up his actions again, as Osborn wakes up from the blackout) and to be introduced to Mary Jane. What has Peter been up to during all this time? It doesn't take that long to buy cranberries! Shouldn't he have arrived there first, especially with his head start? And why - if about half an hour has passed - is his cut still fresh? (01:22:50)
Corrected entry: When Spiderman has his first swing around NY with his new suit on, you can see the WTC in the reflection in Spiderman's eyes. (Directly after the man in the subway is paying the Spiderman theme song on his guitar) (00:55:45)
Corrected entry: In the wrestlers' cage fight Spider-Man is on his knees, on the mat, when he shoots two webs to the roof of the fight-cage (web length = floor to roof). These he uses to jump over Bone Saw. The webs are never seen hanging in the cage again, even at the end when the cage is wide open. (00:40:30)
