Corrected entry: After freeing himself from the symbiote, the symbiote begins to fall into the area where Eddie is. In an overhead view, the symbiote is seen rapidly attaching itself to Eddie's arms and covering them. The very next shot shows the symbiote rapidly enveloping his arms again.
Corrected entry: When Spider-man is in the bell tower, removing the symbiote, it's raining and dark outside. At the same time Eddie Brock is in the church down below and praying. You can see out of the front door of the church and it is bright and sunny outside. Similarly, every stained glass window is lit up. How can they be lit up if it is dark outside?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Gwen is grabbing the phone cable to not fall to her death, her father and boyfriend (Eddie) arrive. They see her, and show no sign of worry. Her father asks "What is she doing up there?", but doesn't react that her daughter is about to die. Eddie, who likes her very much, doesn't react either. What's wrong with these people?Dr. James
Corrected entry: In the city's festival, Spiderman deliberately kisses Gwen Stacy. He knows Mary Jane, his all dream girlfriend, is watching, he just met her there. Why would he kiss her? Perhaps the emotion of the festival made him kiss her, all right, but that wouldn't explain why, in a later scene, Peter goes to the restaurant to propose to Mary Jane, and gets very surprised when she tells him that he's driving her away. Did he just forget he kissed another girl in front of him? Also, while Mary Jane is very upset, when she gets to the restaurant, he greets Peter happily, even though she started to cry when she saw Peter and Gwen kissing. What's wrong with everybody?Dr. James
Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie, Harry's butler informs him that his father died with his own weapon, and that Spiderman didn't kill him. I wonder what took him so long to tell him this. He has known this since the end of the first movie and has talked with Harry some times (as scene in the films), so why didn't he tell him this, when Harry was hunting Spiderman to kill him because of the revenge of his father? Doesn't make sense at all.Dr. James
Corrected entry: The last part of the movie consists in Peter trying to get off the suit, and it is shown to be very difficult and painful. Even Eddie has problems with that. Curiously, Peter took off the suit a couple of times before and saved it in his trunk. so it makes you wonder why only later he has problems taking it off.Dr. James
Corrected entry: When Venom kidnaps Mary Jane in the taxi cab, trapping it mid-air in the black web. She was and continues to be on the back seat all the while, wobbling left to right. The moment Spider man makes an appearance to the scene, he lands on the bonnet of the car to face Mary Jane seated in the front seat just behind the steering wheel. This was done deliberately for the moment and remains so for the part of the taxi cab action sequence.
Corrected entry: In the crane scene, the crane operator gets on the radio and says to shut down power at the generator. When the chief arrives, he tells another cop to call the power company and have them cut the power to the entire block. What good would that do if the crane is powered by a generator?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Spider-man is going to get the key to the city, listen to the music the band is playing just as he swings in- it's the popular jingle to the Spider-man cartoon series in the 60s.
Corrected entry: When MJ goes back to her apartment, she attempts to turn on the light and the power is off. She listens to a telephone message, which she couldn't do if the power was out.
Corrected entry: In the crane scene, the first damage shot shows the I-beam that is hanging from the crane crashing through the windows as everyone hits the floor. In a following shot, the boom of the crane takes out the floor below. The opening shot of the scene shows that it's a fixed boom tower crane. How did the boom get lower than the I-Beam was in the first shot?
Corrected entry: The loud noise at the end of the movie is what got the symbiote off of Peter. When he was thrown in front of the train, it was honking its horn, which would have rid him of the symbiote then.
Corrected entry: In Spiderman 3, a large portion of New York city is aware of Spiderman and Mary Jane's upside down kiss from Spiderman 1. An entire crowd urges Peter Parker to recreate the upside-down kiss with Gwen. However, no-one saw Spiderman and Mary Jane kiss in the first place. Although the 'upside-down kiss' scene is a memorable cinematic moment, it occurred in an abandoned alley.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Harry is lying in the hospital bed, his shirt is open enough that you can see his nipple. There is a cut to Peter who speaks, and when the camera goes back to Harry, his nipple is covered up.
Corrected entry: During Flint's final flashback of killing Uncle Ben, there is a tear rolling down Uncle Ben's face when he gets shot. Then the camera turns to Flint, and then back to Uncle Ben falling, and there is no tear on his face.
Corrected entry: Near the end when Flint Marko turns himself into a cloud of sand, it flies away into the city. When it flies behind the huge building, you can determine the sheer size of the sand cloud. But the sand cloud only came from his own body and didn't 'borrow' any nearby sand, so the volume of sand shouldn't have been so large.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Peter goes to tell his aunt he is going to marry MJ, she is serving him tea and goes to get milk out of the fridge. It happens fast, but if you watch, she actually pulls Tropicana Orange juice out, then the next shot, she is shown pouring milk for the tea, there is no orange juice on the table or any need for it in tea.
Corrected entry: (Everything I'm describing is a shadow) In the scene where Sandman first meets Venom, we see the shadow of Venom on a wall get hit by a garbage can that Sandman is holding. Sandman then holds the garbage can behind his back, and if you look closely the garbage can literally disappears.
Corrected entry: Eddie Brock's Bad Teeth. The symbiote is supposed to accentuate the host's bad characteristics. At the end of the movie, when Venom and Spiderman are fighting and just before Eddie Brock is killed, we see that he has bad teeth. When the symbiote pulls back from his face, we can see that his natural teeth are jagged and worn, hence it makes sense that the symbiote would accentuate this effect and give the Venom character vicious razor-sharp teeth like those of a shark. However, if you look at Eddie Brock in any previous scenes, he does not have bad teeth at all, in fact he has quite good teeth. Seems as if the bad teeth were an afterthought added midway through production.
Corrected entry: When Flint is running from the cops, he hops a fence and all of the sudden he is in some special molecule testing facility. Where are the security guards?
Corrected entry: At the start of the film, when Peter is explaining to Mary Jane about how sound waves travel, his explanation ends up being applicable to the concept of how the symbiote can be defeated.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Eddie enters J Jameson's room without permission to show him the Spider-man photos you can see Miss Brant pick up her phone in frustration. But in the next shot you can see Miss Brant looking inside through the glass.
Corrected entry: When the police officer throws the tarp from the top of the sand truck, the entire tarp falls off. Yes, this had to work to sell the sequence, but there is no way someone could lift the entire tarp off of that long truck, especially at the angle and the force with with he drew the tarp. Look closely, you can tell that a wire connected to the middle of the tarp was used to lift it from the truck bed and was deleted digitally later.
Corrected entry: When Flint Marco is walking downing the street just after turning into Sandman, two cops notice him and give chase. He runs behind a truck and disappears. When the cops get there, there are 5 or 6 people walking by. From their point of view they would of seen where he went, but no one seems dumbfounded or shocked that a man just turned to sand and slid into the back of a truck. The tarp on the truck was tied down on all sides, so he couldn't have jumped in as a man.
Corrected entry: When MJ goes over to Harry's place for lunch, Harry is seen putting butter and what looks like peppers into the pan. They then start dancing until MJ says "The butter!" The next shot shows the pan with only butter in in - no peppers.
Corrected entry: When Aunt May comes to visit Peter at his apartment, she is easily able to open the door that has taken Pete's strength to open from the outside every other time throughout the film.
Corrected entry: When Peter and MJ are on the bridge, in the shot where MJ walks away, Pater's hand holding the wedding ring remains up by his face. In the next shot, the long shot where Peter is seen entirely in the frame, his hand is down by his side.
Corrected entry: Whatever happened to Spiderman's spider's sense? Throughout the movie, Spiderman was caught quite off guard, such as in the first encounter with the New Goblin. Shouldn't the spider sense given him some sort of heads up?
Corrected entry: When Spider-Man first goes to save MJ from Venom and Sand-Man, there is a panning shot of the crowd turning to look at him. In the crowd is a fireman who lifts a small child up so he can see. The shot switches between the crowd and Spider-Man, and every time it goes back, it shows the fireman lifting the child again.
Corrected entry: Venom knows everything that Spider-Man knows, since the alien costume was once part of Spider-Man. How did Venom know about Sandman's dying daughter, if Spider-Man and the police only think Sandman is a violent murderer? As a photographer, Venom would not have access to Sandman's criminal file, and Peter refused to look at the file at the police station.
Corrected entry: After Spider-Man floods the storm drain sand man is in, he begins to disintegrate, as does any sand in water. He tries to pick up the locket of his daughter, yet is unable to, due to his liquefying form. He is then washed through the sewers as disintegrated sand, but when he reforms himself at the other end he's somehow got the locket in his hand.
Corrected entry: When the cop is chasing Flint, the tarp above them flutters, causing the cops to climb a ladder. When the cop climbs the ladder the next shot shows him with a shovel that's appeared from nowhere.
Corrected entry: During Peter and Marko's final scene together where Peter gives Flint forgiveness, Flint says something like "I'm sorry I killed your uncle." There is no way for Marko to have known that the man he killed was indeed Peter's uncle, for Marko only knows him as 'Spider-Man', and not 'Peter Parker'.
Corrected entry: When Peter tells Aunt May that he plans on proposing to Mary Jane, she makes some tea for them. But instead of tea, only hot water is poured from the teapot. Furthermore, Aunt May then proceeds to add milk to the cups of hot water.
Corrected entry: In the first Spiderman movie, JJ is told that when they featured Spiderman on the cover they sold out, he wanted more pictures of him, but was told "Eddie has been on it for weeks and just can't get a shot of him"Now when the first movie came out all of us comic geeks knew it was in reference to Eddie Brock. But in Spiderman 3, Brock is a "new guy" trying to get a job and had to introduce himself.
Corrected entry: The symbiote is vulnerable to sound and sonic vibrations. We see this at the bell tower and the construction site at the end. However, When black Spiderman is fighting Sandman in the sewer tunnels, subway trains are shooting past them left and right. Those make tremendous noise when moving at high speeds, far more noise than a single church bell or a couple of ringing metal rods. However, black Spider-Man was not affected at all.
Corrected entry: The first time we see MJ hostage in the taxi cab and she's hanging in the black web, she is in the back seat. The second time we see her in the cab, she's in the front driver's seat.
