The Spider-Man Chronicles is a fabulous book for those curious about the process of filmmaking. The book was written by Grant Curtis, a producer on the film Spider-Man 3. The book includes his daily entries to a production journal that he kept during the making of the film. Every topic is discussed in detail, from location scouting to visual effects, and from casting to costume design. The book includes a brief foreword from fellow producers Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin.

The only caution is that people expecting lots of drawings or concept art might be disappointed. There are plenty of images in the book, but most of them are production photos. The Spider-Man Chronicles has less artwork than other movie art books, but in exchange you get a daily journal entry that gives a first-hand account of what it would be like to work on a massive film like Spider-Man 3.

OK, my verdict first. I have all three "the making of" spider-man movies books. The best one is still the first by Mark Cotta Vaz. This third one by Grant Curtis is good in some parts but really tiresome to read when you are actually looking for the fun part of moviemaking artbook. We follow the making of Spidey 3 through many journals and entries. Some of the entries are things that I really don't care about. But the conceptual designs, sketches, stills, and digital renderings are great. This book could've been shorter so it wouldn't have the stellar price tag it bears. Sure, making a movie of this scope is a huge amount of work, but to drag the readers along with the same kind of tedious readings is just not fun at all. Also, I miss the script, which is also absent in art of Spidey 2 book.

Wasn't a great art book - more text than anything about the making of the film.

My introduction into the world of Spider-Man came via a highly unlikely event (which I will not repeat here), so I have been eagerly delving into books that describe the history and the processes (of both the comic artistry and film making) that surround Peter Parker and his alter ego since the summer of 2001. I can easily tell you that this is the best book by FAR.

Although I am not usually a fan of nonfiction, I found "Chronicles" hard to put down. Grant describes everything a Spider-Man fan would want to know in regards to the third movie and probably a lot that they might have missed. I actually had to ban myself from reading this book for 24 hours so that I could avoid "Spidey Burnout"! The best part of the book was Grant's production diary...I got so deep into his descriptions that I found it difficult to stop reading so that I could go to work!

I've knocked off a quarter of a star because the pictures weren't _quite_ as good as the books by Mark Vaz, but the writing and material MORE than make up for it.

RATING: 4.75 stars...em...pumpkin bombs. ;)

Most behind the scenes or 'Art of' titles amount to coffee table books with lost of gorgeous production art but little written content. This one is a notable exception. Written by Grant Curtis, director Sam Raimi's former assistant-turned Spider-man producing partner, the book contains great first hand looks at different stages of the Spider-Man 3 production, from early story meetings at Laura Ziskin's house to the casting of Thomas Hayden Church as the Sandman, to the late decision to jettison the villainous Vulture in favor of Venom. It's great to hear the process behind crafting such a massive project from someone who was in the room for all the meetings, who was helping to call the shots. The final section of the book is especially interesting, as it's Curtis' on-set diary- chronicling the day-to-day shooting process of one of the most expensive movies ever made.

PS: The pictures are pretty cool too.

Face it -- SPIDER-MAN 3 was about finally realizing the popular comic-book character "VENOM" on the big screen; in that respect this book delivers -- there are gorgeous shots of the villain in various stages of his conception in the book along with the development of the "Sandman" and the rest of the cast. The book is wonderfully illustrated and broad, but repeats many of the images often and doesn't really have a brilliant narrative. This is a movie based on a comic book -- it should be light and full of annecdotes...and it doesn't.

Beautiful to look at -- not a great read.
