Spiderman 2
Starbuck [13:12] Comments: 0 []
A vastly superior sequel. Roughly 4.75 times more exhilerating and fulfilling than the first film. Funny, touching, exciting, intelligent, X-cellent.

All Spidey's lacking now is a proper theme-tune, something John Williams-ish, for kids big and small to hum as they mentally websling their way about their business. Although the way they sneaked in the original Spiderman TV theme ("Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a spider can") was comic genius!

Geekozoids will appreciate seeing Sam Raimi-chainsaw-veteran Bruce Campbell making an appearance as an ultra-annoying usher at MJ's theatre, as well as a brief rubble-dodging cameo from split-name-Amazing-Spiderman-creator Stan Lee.

Some fantastic trailers/shorts/promos before the film, too. Hellboy! With Ron Perlman!! Out on DVD in 3 weeks in the States, but coming soon to UK cinemas (what's that smell?). Can't wait, if only for the Perlman-factor... And as for Pixar's The Incredibles - excuse me, its all got too much, I'm going to have to go and wee.
