Does Whatever a Sequel Can
Just came back from seeing Spiderman 2. I said that the first Spiderman was the best to comic to film movie ever. Spidey 2 is more than that; it's an action movie first, a comic book movie second. It would stand on its own whether or not the legacy of Spiderman, comic book hero, came before it. It's got everything I love in a movie: action, adventure, drama, romance, car crashes, explosions and a cool villain. But what makes Spidey 2 work so well are the two things that pull all the other stuff together: a great sense of humor and Sam Raimi. I don't want to write a full scope review now, there's a few underlying themes I want to work into a post in the morning. I'll just tell you what I'm going to tell everyone else: Don't miss this movie. It's a great summer joyride. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll probably see it again.
