I loved it.

It wasn't better than, or worse than the first movie. Just a nearly perfect addition to the first movie. Now I'm looking forward to the third one.

I didn't notice too much of the CGI. It was done fairly well. Sometimes in movies I think the CGI is so over the top that it doesn't even come off as real at all (cough, Neo fighting hundreds of Smiths in the park in "Matrix: Reloaded, cough). But this movie's CGI was done well and in "dark" enough situations that it looked good. I say dark because the CGI shots were from far away, or in lower lighting, so as to make it harder to see the CGI lines.

Tobey Maguire does Spidey well, again. I don't know if he's the one in all the scenes where Spidey is in his costume, but some of the ways he crouches and stuff are so cool...they look JUST like the comic book did.

The villain is MUCH better than the Green Goblin was, in my opinion. He's got better lines, his costume doesn't appear cartoonish., and the arms are insane. They are so cool to watch, it's like they're actually alive.

Peter takes his mask off a few times, and some people see who he really is. I thought that part was cool. He's struggling with whether he wants to be Spidey or not, and then learns that people need him.

Some of the cooler parts of the movie were the lesser characters, like Aunt May and J. Jonah Jameson. They add good elements to the movie without being major characters in it.

Also, the scene with Bruce Campbell was cool. Sam Raimi must really have a soft spot for Campbell. He's had a bit part in both of the Spider-Man movies.

And you get a couple of ideas for who might be the next villain...I won't ruin it though, I'm sure if you're up to date on Spider-Man at all, you'll have a few ideas who it could be already.

If you liked the first one, go see this one, you won't be upset.

Seeing it in a couple of hours. I don't know what everyone has against Willam Defoe playing the Green Goblin though. I thought he did a fairly good job.

It wasn't Dafoe's job of acting, it was the cartoonish way they had the costume for the character set up that I didn't particularly like. I thought Dafoe did a very good job of acting in it.

Same here. I saw S2 last night and I have to say...I'm very impressed with Molina's interpretation of Doc. Oc. In fact I was more interested in him than in the whiney, pansy ass portrayal of Peter Parker. There were alot of funny one liners and Bruce Campbell was classic. Overall I could have used more kutzpah from Toby Maguire (sp?) and less waffling. The soundtrack was tepid and weak as predicted. Still a decent movie none the less.

I don't know...I thought Peter Parker's character was represented perfectly in this one. Here's a guy that has super powers, but didn't ask for them. Here's a guy who now believes that because he has super powers, he has to use them for good. Here's a guy who's watching everything he loves and needs slip away from him because he's using these powers for good. Here's a guy who's not sure which is more important, fighting crime and doing good for the city, or living his life to make himself happy. I thought it was excellent.




On another note, I really liked the part where he was in the elevator with that guy. That was hilarious.

Heck yah...

"Nice sidey costume."
"Thanks."
"Where'd you get it?"
"I made it."
"Looks a bit uncomfortable."
"It itches a bit.......(long pause)......and it rides up in the crotch."

Just came back from the movie. Thought it was okay, but if I were spider man, I'd kick that bitches teeth in Mary Jane. The guy is broke and spends his few bucks trying to buy her flowers and see her play, I didnt think spiderman was supposed to be pussywhipped. Then the bitch blows him off for another guy. Plus I think shes a little bit on the ugly side.

LMAO!!! Yeah, love stricken maybe, pussy whipped no. I think Kirsten Dunst is fairly hot though, I had an issue of Maxim she was in.

it was ok, but the graphics in some parts looked under-developed. It seemed like they were on a time schedule and had to release the movie no-matter what :( Wasn't really worth my money

Some of the graphics in the first movie were bad too.

I don't know, do you think we're just so accustomed to things being "perfect" that we nit pick things like that??

I mean, Lord of the Rings was spectacular...but there were some parts in all 3 movies where I was like, "Hmmm...these graphics could be better..."
