Went to dinner at Lone Star and ate WAY TOO MUCH on Friday. It was a lot of fun. :) We were celebrating Ted’s raise (yay Ted!) and so we went out to dinner, then went toooooooo
Spider-Man! Spider-Man! Does whatever a spider can! Look out! Here comes Spider-Man!
Hee hee hee. I really enjoyed the film a lot. There were some entirely too heavy-handed emotional moments, but the heavy-handedness was bad writing, not bad acting or bad directing. Bad *editing* I’ll give you; the two scenes that stand out as the worst could have been … well. One needed rewriting. The other one coulda been cut.
But! I thought they stayed very true to the origin stories — and the first half of the movie was *about* origins; it was GREAT. And Tobey Maguire is soooooo cute. Ohmigod. And the webslinging was good. And there were classic Spider-Man poses. And and and. *Yeah*.
Oop, I have to go be social for a few minutes. :)
Nostalgia moment there – when we lived in the US all five of us were crammed into a two-bedroom townhouse. For some private time, I used to get up half an hour or so before anybody else to watch the spiderman cartoon on tv in the livingroom. Still get that tune on my brain, when reminded.(Spider-Man, Spider-Man, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man…)
I waved my hands around so excitedly when he first did the hang-upside-down thing, which is pretty much the defining Spidey pose, in my mind.
Now I want to find a way to rig my Super-Poseable Spider-man figure to do this.
And I want to see the cartoon again!
