Saw Spider Man last night. This would have been a great movie if they just took out the embarassingly crappy love story, and the overlong sappy back story. Of course the movie would have only been 10 minutes then. But it would be an amazing 10 minutes!
As is, this should be a big hit with 11 year old girls.

I just saw the re-release of The Last Waltz. I recommend.
"The original "Star Wars" and its sequels are echo chambers of tropes and images from literary science fiction, used in ways that strike a careful balance between affectionate familiarity and outright plagiarism. The first glimpse of Luke Skywalker's desert homeworld, Tatooine, evokes the setting of Frank Herbert's 1965 novel "Dune"; Lucas even throws in a shot of a skeletal desert serpent reminiscent of Herbert's gigantic sandworms. The amazing visuals suggest an eye nourished by the magazine art of Frank R. Paul, John Schoenherr, Kelly Freas and Chesley Bonestell."
