Our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man

Fliss took one for the team over the last couple of evenings and let me watch my recently purchased box-set of Spider-Man 1 & 2 on consecutive nights. The second one still ranks as the best action movie I’ve seen in recent years, and was just as enjoyable on the small screen.

Maybe I’m imagining things, but it looked like the climactic scenes of Doc Ock sinking to his doom had been cleaned up a little for the DVD, as I thought the effect looked really poor when I saw it at the cinema. The effects in the second movie are substantially better than the first in any case – Spidey at least appears to have some weight to him in the swinging scenes.

I cant wait for the third movie now, but it’s still the best part of two and a half years away. Hopefully, come Summer 2007, I’ll be able to convince Fliss to come along with me.
