11:41 pm - My friendly neighborhood Spiderman

Went to see "Spiderman 3" with a friend this evening. Just as when I saw "Spiderman 2", I was pleasantly surprised at how good the film was. Not only did it have good action sequences, it also had good plot and characterization, with believable relationships.

I liked the little metaphoric touches, like the symbolism of the Black Goo from Outer Space. I have to admit, though, that I really got a major kick from Peter Parker under the stuff's influence. He was fun in ways Peter Parker almost never is. He had an edge to him -- sometimes a nasty one, but still . . .

I think my favorite scene was when he was on the hall payphone and Ursala the landlord's daughter was feeding him cookies. He acted like a bit of a jerk -- but she liked it.

I guess she likes the bad boys as much as I do. :D

I was kind of reminded at times of the classic Star Trek (TOS) episode where Kirk is split into meek and aggressive sides. He needed both of them, integrated into a whole, to be truly himself. I think Peter Parker could use a little more of Black-suited Spidey in his life, so he'd be a bit less of a patsy that others push around. Sometimes the only way to be effective is to Not Be Nice. Unfortunate, but true.

After the movie we hashed over the flick over a late dinner of omlette (spinach and feta, for me) and burgers (for him) at a local diner. I hadn't seen my friend in a while, so it was good to get out of the house for a bit. (And away from the black hole that is Second Life!)

The video in this entry is a cover of the "Spiderman" cartoon theme song done by the Ramones. I loved that show when it was on TV, even though by today's standards, it brings new meaning to the term "hokey". To me, it's a classic. It was my introduction to the webspinner and one of the reasons I first became a fan of his.
