Friendly Nieghbourhood Spider-man!
I generally don't like superhero movies, but Spideyman I loved. I saw it FDFS in priya when it released, and loved it. Its not dependant on special effects( which are damn good, by the way), has a great story line, good characters, and Peter Parker is quite believable as a human being, which is more than you can say for Vin Diesel in real life.
Its got a nice ending too. Its like Almost Famous, he doesn't get the girl, but everything is OK.
Also on show was Independance Day. I love this movie. It is so so so baaaaaaad. The speech is the best part. When Bill Pullman makes his appeal, " We will not go down into that night. We will survive! The Day we celebrate our Independance Day!" I just die laughing everytime.
This is such an amazingly cliched movie, with so much jingoism, its great fun to watch. I highly reccomend it to anyone with a grudge against America(read, everyone born before Dubya took over). And Frace. You get to see the Eiffel Tower get blown up by Aliens.
The absolute best thing about this movie is the scence where they win, and you see lakh log standing around Taj Mahal, celebrating. Why? I have no Idea, its just one of those things you have to accept. In the event of a Major world disaster, when Humanity just about pulls through, the entire population of Agra will turn up at the Taj Mahal just before the surprise victory, just in time to celebrate.
They don't make cinema like they used to. They're too politically correct now.
Excluding esteemed members of the Clinton Family of course.
I wish someone would make a movie about them.
