It is not often that Hollywood manages to crank out a sequel that is worth watching. It is even less frequent that a sequel is better than its predecessor, but I think we have a case of that with Spiderman 2. It manages to keep that comic-book feel, and stay interesting, while ratcheting up the action a notch or two. I’m also not as dismayed by Tobey Maguire in the lead since I’ve seen him do it once already, and I think he does any even better job in this movie exploring the namesake character. The villian is more interesting in this one as well.
When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
