Movies, movies, movies
The last two Wednesdays I took my son to see some of the new movies. We saw the new "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkband" and "Spiter-man 2". They were both really good, IMO. Both had a bit to much talking for my son but that's not to be unexpected for a 7 year old. Spider-man had some interesting things in it for those of us who grew up reading the comics. It did a decent job of staying with the history and there was some good background setup in there for Spider-Man 3. While Tobey Maguir seems a little bit to whiney for Peter Parker, he still did a good job of showing the tormented side of Spider-Man. As for Harry Potter, I have never read the books but this third movie was really cool. The way it seems to fit together was interesting. And the girl playing Hermione is going to be one hot babe when she gets a bit older. Next on the list of movies to see will be "I, Robot". Maybe we'll see that this coming Wednesday. Or maybe "Thunderbirds". We'll see.
