I watched a 2-Disc Special Edition of Spider-Man on DVD tonight. As a movie about the ramifications of gaining superpowers, it's pretty enjoyable. Spider-Man's nemesis Green Goblin, however, is too one-dimensional. Villains in superhero movies should have grand plans, but this one really doesn't -- he only serves to test Spider-Man. I was really impressed by J.K. Simmons in the role of newspaper editor J. Jonah Jameson; he is one of the best things about this movie. The DVDs hold an impressive amount of extras, including significant comic book backstory. However, the hotspots on the DVD menu buttons are maddeningly small -- do yourself a favor and use the arrow keys.
