How can a movie live up to this much hype. I mean you cannot go anywhere without seeing something with with Spidey on it. My God, I bought a 3 pack of Brawney papertowels and guess who was on them. That's right, Spiderman. Well I thought that maybe I did it with the buy in to all the hype. Well, low and behold, Spiderman 2 exceeded my expectations....by far. This movie totally blew my mind. The only thing I can compare it to would perhaps be Superman 2. But miles and miles better. There are a few critics that say it is boring. I believe that these guys had there mind made up before they ever entered the theater. Or maybe they were paid off by other movies that were stupid enough to open up 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after Spiderman. This is a movie that really has something for everyone. When the movies ended, everyone stood and cheered. I saw it on the opening Wednesday night and have been back 3 times since. I could watch it a few more times, but budget is budget so I will eagerly and impatiently wait for the DVD. If you really need a fix and cannot afford to watch the movie a bunch of times, pull out the first movie. Or....if you have never seen the Spiderman: Animated Series from 2K3, this is a very nice DVD to own. All 13 episodes from the MTV series. It ROCK's!!!!!
