Spider-Man Film Series Reaction: From Raimi, to Webb, to Watts




Spider-Man has been my favorite superhero since I was a kid. He was the first comic-book hero I followed, and I collected every single one of his books until I stopped reading comics (at some point in the 90s). So, I’ve felt a great attachment to the character, and the movies --even when I didn’t like them. But it’s been years since I watched most of them (I returned to SPIDER-MAN 2 several times over the years, though).

In virtually every single one of these arguments the position of "it should not be done unless" or "it should not be done, period" has been made. I have not seen any argument made that it should be done under ANY circumstance. And that's my position.

Album Review: Life of Agony - A Place Where There's No More Pain

Beautiful; brilliant; dark; LOA is back!

I'm a music lover who thinks lyrics matter least. I'm first and foremost about the vocal melody, then the vocals, then the music, and last the lyrics. That is, except for two bands: TOOL and Life of Agony. And with no new TOOL anywhere on the immediate horizon, I'm tackling the brand spankin' new Life of Agony... a band that was #3 on my top 20 metal albums list (for A River Runs Red) oh so many years ago.
