Evening with Spider-Man
It was early evening and we didn't have a movie to watch. I'd been complaining about still not having seen Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, a movie I absolutely have to see before it gets off the big screen. Will, the Housemate, said, "Well, let's go see a movie."
At first, I thought he was kidding—it's so unlike Will to be so spontaneous. But I shortly went online to verify show times and the next showing was at 7:30 PM. It was already a quarter after, and the next showing was at 10:30 PM.
“How about Spiderman 2? It's showing next at 8:00 PM,” I suggested.
The next thing you know, Will is rushing to change clothes and go.
After paying $8 apiece for tickets, I wanted a extra large Diet Coke and small popcorn. I only had $4 left for concessions totaling $8.75. Will donated another $5, and we were off to see the movie.
Spiderman 2 was fantastic! I had to say that it topped the first movie. Tobey Maguire is looking fine. I still think of Kirsten Dunst as the infant vampire, Claudia, in Interview with a Vampire, but she is certainly taking Mary Jane and making her her own. I missed the green suit that Doc Ock wears in the comic book, but Alfred Molina was convincing in the part.
Spiderman 3 is almost certainly going to feature the wedding of Peter and Mary Jane. Villian of choice? If the closing scene with Harry Osborne is any indication, it's going to be the Hobgoblin. That actually was Harry Osborne in the comic book if I remember correctly.
If you've been thinking about going to see Spider-Man...go and see it.
So when do I go see Harry Potter? Hopefully before too long. You'll hear it here first.
