Caught in Spidey's Web

I did it. I said I wouldn't but I caved. I went to Spider-man 3 in its opening weekend. And...I loved it! I admit going into the theatre I was a pessimist. I wasn't enthralled with the second movie in the series and thus I wasn't really looking forward to this latest edition. I have been so wrapped up in the trailers for Harry Potter, Oceans 13, and Pirates of the Caribbean, that I have overlooked my web-slinging superhero. Shame on me. The edition of Topher Grace to the cast, and the reprized role of James Franco made the movie for me. I wasn't a bit overwhelmed by the sheer multitude of villains, instead I was thrilled with their presence throughout the film. Kirsten Dunst didn't really do much for me, but for once she had a storyline that tested her acting chops and forced her to play something other than JUST the damsel in distress (although she was that too). If you haven't already, shell out the 8 bucks, because this summer blockbuster has set the bar high and will deliver.
While at the theatre I was treated to the trailer of Lindsay Lohan's latest flick- Georgia Rule. It reminded me that Mother's Day is quickly approaching. If you haven't the slightest idea what you are going to get your mom I have something that might just save the day. "Because I Said So" is hoping to bank off its appropriately timed DVD release. This Tuesday you can pick up the movie that had me heading to the theatre for an encore. Starring Diane Keaton (Family Stone), Mandy Moore (American Dreamz), Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly), and Stephen Collins (7th Heaven) this laugh-out-loud comedy may just hit too close to home for some (I know it did for my mom when she saw it!). If nothing else rent it and do a mother-daughter (guys can watch it with their moms too...just be warned it is most certainly a chick flick) movie night. It will be one for the books!

I know this isn't a sports blog (Tim and Paul have that one covered) but I have to give a shout out to the Red Wings because as a Detroit sports fan I am all about the win today in Hockeytown! Go Wings!
