We *heart* Peter Parker

We did our part as Americans, as uber-nerds, and went to see Spider-man 3 yesterday. I didn't know how we could avoid it; we were being driven by a comic-obsessed 6 year-old boy. The PG-13 rating had me nervous - it brings my mothering skills into question - but I played permissive parent and went for it.

No nightmares. They loved it.

And I'll be honest: I love this franchise. LOVE IT. I can't turn away from the themes. Doing the right thing. Making sacrifices. Forgiveness. I am a sucker for this stuff.

Sure there was some awkward moments in the film. I don't like my Peter Parker going goth on me. His Disco Stu phase pained me. But nothing I couldn't overlook; it was a great ride.

My good mood continues over MTMS: On being happy.

Too true. Loved the movie, not the eyeliner.

I saw it twice and it was great! :)
First I took my teenager right after school on Friday, but then the other kids were crushed out, so we all went again on Saturday. Now we are broke, but satisfied. lol
