Spent so much time discussing Newark politics and legacies of new Ancestors, I’m glad to get back to geek stuff! 🙂
I find it interesting that so many film critics are having problems with this Spider-Man. (A “Spider-Man” film getting a “rotten” rating on Rotten Tomatoes? Hide, Irving Forbush!)
A triumph, because it proves that if a highly skilled filmmaker tries hard enough, a film can imitate the complexity of the comics. One of the best “X-Men” movies, ever! And it even rebooted the series, effectively, by erasing the tragedy of “X-Men: The Last Stand.” 🙂
JULY 6TH UPDATE: And, as a hard-core comicbook fanboy who bought the original story off the stands, I thought this was quite funny.
