What Was That Movie We Were Talking About?

Tomorrow you'll be able to see the blockbuster of the summer, and it has nothing to do with politics.

The USA Today review of Spider-Man 2 is just one of hundreds of excellent reviews.

With special effects so convincing you don't even think about them, a head-case hero and a three-dimensional villain who is his equal, socko Spider-Man 2 (* * * * out of four) has something for everyone.

Like 2002's original, this is an uncommonly entertaining movie for one whose principals' near-morbid hang-ups are as messy as Spidey's projectile goo. And when a web-spinning spinoff ends up being even better than its predecessor, its potential box office has - to steal a claim from the film's villain - the power of the sun in the palm of its hand.

Fahrenheit 9/11 is so... yesterday.

Which, for me, was nothing.

I'm curious to see how Spider-Man 2 will stack up to Fahrenheit 9/11's per-screen totals. Obviously Spidey will blow away F9/11 at the box office this week, but it's also showing on countless more screens. Could be interested to watch...

Definitely a cool movie.

The dialogue is... awkward at times, but that is easily overlooked. Kudos to the special effects team... the visuals are vastly improved over the previous film.

The funniest scene was when Spidey was in the elevator. I nearly fell out of my seat!
