I saw Spiderman 2.  Not going to do a play-by-play on it.  But if you like love stories, you’ll love it.  And even if you don’t, you might still love it, because it’s action-packed, hilarious, really serious, and really sad.  It was just... such an experience.  I loved it.

you explained it pretty well. It was a great movie. Do you know if there will be a 3rd? The ending seemed to tie all the loose ends together from the first, so it doesn’t seem like there would be a third...but it would be cool if there was.

Spidey 2 is without a doubt the best movie of the summer.  Loved the ending and where they left all three main characters.  You somehow were left off with a sense of impending doom that you felt at the end of Attack of the Clones (or at least I did.  I realize that I’m the only one, but I really like Episode II).

In answer to TJ’s question, Sony has actually plotted out a plan for nine Spider-man films total.  However, the cast and director are only signed on for the third one which will be out 2006.  Sam Raimi said that he’d consider coming back for Spider-man 4, but Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst have both said 3 will be their last.

Oh yeah, and speaking of superhero flicks the rumor about town is that Bryan Singer and the whole X-Men crew are on board for the new Superman film.  If true, maybe they’ll finally, FINALLY make a new film on my personal favorite superhero.

I haven’t heard/read anything regarding further Spiderman movies.  But there’s no question that there will be a third.  The final scenes from part 2 make that clear because of what Spiderman’s best friend discovers.  That was a huge and clear message that the story isn’t over; you can’t just leave the second most important plot element unresolved like that forever.

I liked it, but it was way sappy.  Also, the way that they drowned the energy ball or whatever it was, was lame.

It was way sappy, but I didn’t mind that -- I think the whole concept of the movie is at least 50% love story, probably more.  But yeah, the energy ball ending was beat... there’s no way that just some water was going to stop that thing.
