Music Video of the Day: Signal Fire by Snow Patrol (2007, directed by Paul McGuigan)


Tobey Maguire’s third outing of Spider-Man doesn’t get much respect, despite the worthy efforts of Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, and Sam Raimi.  Spider-Man 3 has always felt overstuffed and, when compared to Maguire’s other two outings, it’s easy to see that Spider-Man 3 is often just going through the motions.  I still like the soundtrack, though.

Snow Patrol’s Signal Fire was the only single to be released from the soundtrack.  The video not only advertises the film but it also pays homage to not only the previous two films but what they meant to those of us who viewed them.  I remember when this video came out, some people felt that the school play concept was saying that the movies were meant for kids but I think, instead, the concept shows that the movies reminded viewers of what it was like to be young, hopeful, confused, and sad all at the same time.  The Maguire Spider-Man films comprised a coming-of-age trilogy and that’s what this video is all about.

Enjoy!
