“Does whatever a Spider can...”

If you haven't seen "Spider-Man 2" yet, what are you waiting for? It's the event movie of the summer, it's amazing, it's super, it's... well, it's just perfect. There's nothing wrong with it in any way. Oh, and I think if we redid the Kirsten Dunst versus poll now, she might get more support (I'm not gonna say she'd beat Hewitt, but it wouldn't be a blowout).

As if "Spider-Man 2" the movie wasn't awesome enough, the game also rocks. I picked it up for Xbox, which was probably a good move, because it's 480p and Dolby Digital for that system. It looks stunning, the gameplay is great, and the semi-linear style is perfect for capturing the "Spider-man" feel. The only quibble I have with the game is the hand-to-hand combat system isn't great.

Still, the movie is so good it dwarfs the game. I'm gonna go see it again today. And maybe again after that. And after that. And this is why it's gonna become the second-highest grossing movie of all-time. It's been out for three days, and I know multiple people who've already seen it twice, and plan on seeing it again. It's that good, and worth seeing in the theaters.
