I've just got back from watching "Spider-Man 2" at the cinema, which I really enjoyed. The first film was good (although it didn't stand up to repeated viewings very well), and this one was better. I'll post a proper review later, so just a couple of general comments for now.

It's been a while since I watched the first film, and there's no real need to re-watch it just before this one - they recap the key points in the intro credits (a bit like the start of "The Two Towers"). The only thing I'd forgotten was that Peter's webshooters are organic rather than mechanical (unlike the comics). And there aren't any extra scenes during/after the end credits, so you won't be missing anything if you don't hang around.

Anyway, definitely recommended.
