Spiderman 2

This trailer is incredible. I could definitely see Spiderman 2 surpassing the first one, if only by a margin (I'd have to say X-2 was better than X-Men. I have high hopes for the third movie, even if they are dimmed a little by realistic pessimism that movies go down in quality as the number following the title gets higher). The Spiderman movies present such a great internal conflict for Peter Parker. Where does he draw the line between his life and the consuming life of Spiderman? "With great power comes great responsibility." Amen to that. Something we can all apply to our own lives.

But doesn't Mary Jane ever get tired of playing the damsel in distress? First she was dangled over the edge of a bridge, now she's carried off by the Doc Oc guy. Poor girl needs some superpowers of her own.
