Bits and Pieces

I didn't want to take away from the Hack/Slash post so I figured I'd make a second one covering bits and pieces happening around the block.

-I went to see Spider-Man 3 and it rocked. It's a great blend of story and action, though I must say that despite the rest of the cast being awesome (especially Bryce Dallas Howard, who is hotness), Kirsten Dunst has either the worst written character in the world or is just a terrible actress. Every time she's on screen I want bad things to happen to her. She didn't bug me much in the first movies. Now, though, it's game on for annoyance. If you liked the first two movies, you'll love this one. Venom is great, Sandman is great and surprisingly, New Goblin steals the show from all of them and gets the best characterization. Go see it.

-I started playing Spider-Man 3 for the Wii. Fun game. If you like SM2 and USM, then the gameplay should be familiar to you, though swinging around with the remote and nunchuck takes some getting used to. There are a few bugs and noticeably load problems, but I'm enjoying it immensely. It's not perfect and could definitely have stood a few months of testing, but it gives me hope for a 616 game that is made with more care. Plus the black suit fucking rocks.

-Dave made me buy Annihilation TPBs against my own will. True story. He kept talking about the series and then I picked up two issues in the discount bin and now I have to own the whole damn thing. Thanks Dave. :)
