spider-man 2

the grade: A+

-sploilers ahead-

first: another bad audience. two kids kept yelling and making a general rukus, a bay cried most of the time, and some morons applauded the credits.

this movie was great, much deeper than the standard summer fair. alfred molina proves he is one amazing actor yet again, and cameos by bruce campbell and hal sparks add humor to an already funny, yet dramatic plot. even the cheesy "united we stand" scene was much better than the first movie. was it perfect? no. but it sure was close. this movie shows just how good a comic book movie can be. the title credits were particularly nice, with the first movie shown in graphic novel slides. my main problem? heavy-handed foreshadowing for a sequel. go watch this movie.
