Today's the day Spider-Man 2 launches in theaters here in the U.S. When the first Spider-Man came out I recall vowing to break my trend of not getting out to the movies to see it on its first run, but failed to make good on that plan. Since then I have worked out the process properly (like attending a movie is so complicated), so I'm much more confident that I'll be able to make it this time. As a long-time fan of the wall-crawler, I thought they did a decent job of bringing Spidey to life in the first-one. I found the CG Spidey a bit too artificial (at least on the small screen), and hope this will be better in the new one (or at least play better on the big screen), but I was impressed with how true to the spirit of the original much of it is (though if I were making the movie, I would have done the whole Gwen Stacey story to its painful conclusion -- shows how old school I am). Anyway, with very positive reviews coming in for the sequel, I'll gladly throw it against the wall and see if it sticks.
