Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer

Well, it's not Dr. Kildaire

monstersocks and I saw Spider-Man 3 on opening weekend. I thought it was good but not great. Too many villains so they couldn't spend an appropriate amount of time on any of them. The ending also felt weak. Great Raimi whimsy in the middle though (monstersocks disagrees on that point). I didn't have a problem with the movie not exactly matching the comic (a visit from the Beyonder wouldn't have helped the film).

Standard "raised by wolves" folks at the theater. We moved after a group of three women with their kids (including one that was maybe a couple of months old) sat down in front of us. I can't imagine a good reason for bringing an infant to a theater.

We saw the trailer for the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie. I was fairly indifferent to seeing it (we saw the first one in the theater on a whim and saw the second between Auckland and LA) but Chow Yun-Fat is in the new one so we may actually see it.
