Movie Review

Yestersday was my son’s 9th birthday. Took him and a platoon of friends to see

SPIDERMAN 2.

I think this may be the stupidest movie I have ever seen, not excluding DUMB

AND DUMBERER, MISSOURI BREAKS, and LAST YEAR IN MARIENBAD. It was dumb,

dumb, dumb and awful. This movie was just packed to the gunwales with every

kind of awfulness, form bogus sentimentality to stupid science. (You

extinguish a fusion reaction by DROWNING IT? Oy oy oy.)

I write as one who LIKES special effects, and grew up reading comic books

and sci-fi. This movie is almost complete garbage. Its only redeeming

feature was the balletic sequences of Spidey swooping through the canyons of

Manhattan.

I canvassed Danny & two of his guests to rate the movie out of 10.

—Danny: 8, no 9.

—Friend A (age 11): 7

—Friend B (age 8): 8
