I celebrated my birthday today with a Homer-sized Simpsons cola thanks to Stewie and I watched Spider-Man 2. I liked it, though there was more cheese than the first one. Two interesting musical anecdotes:
One of the best parts in the movie is when Spidey & Doc Ock are fighting (big spoiler there) and the music stops. Quite powerful. Just goes to show that the absence of music can be just as important as its presence.
When the credits came up a big over-produced rock song started and I thought “that singer sure sounds like the guy from Dashboard Confessional.” Sure enough, when the credits got around to the music, there it was. Weird!
Also – is it the fact that I don’t like sushi make me perceive the guy who opened up a package of it and ate it as the movie started as a goon, or would that be a general perception?
Lastly, there is a nice surprise in the opening credits for Chris Woods.
