Spider-Man 3

Marvel movies continue to surprise. Usually, sequels aren’t quite as good as the originals. But X-Men and Spider-Man have proved this rule wrong. Spider-Man 3 is easily the best of the Spidey film yet. With more bad guys, more turmoil, more love interests, and more action; Spidey grows by leaps and bounds.

Every single actor played their part to perfection. Of the supporting cast, Bryce Dallas Howard as Gwen Stacy stole every scene that she was in. Thomas Haden Church played a wonderfully complex Sandman/Flint Marko. Topher Grace as Venom/Eddie Brock added much needed humor to an otherwise vicious role. And we get to see multiple sides to Goblin Junior/Harry Osborn, James Franco.

Book Meme

Just stumbled across this one, and I added some questions of my own.

A book that made you cry: The Notebook, by Nicolas Sparks. I read this over a lunch break. I had to stop reading after every other page because I couldn’t keep from crying. I was afraid people at work would think something was wrong.

A book that scared you: I can’t think of a book that ever scared me. I’ve read quite a few horror books, but none actually scared me.

A book that made you laugh: Undead and Unwed, by MaryJanice Davidson. A 30 year-old, 6-foot, blonde vampire, with a love for shoes, who thinks blood is disgusting… I can definitely relate to the Betsy, except for the whole vampire thing. And this series continues to get better with each book. I love MJ’s sense of humor!

My Favorite Aliens

This one was really hard to narrow down. But here are my 13 favorite aliens from my favorite shows:

1. Superman – Big Blue has to top the list in pretty much everything for me. But when an alien from another planet decides to make Earth his home and defend it with his life. That’s worth the top spot right there.

2. E.T. – Gentle and peaceful, E.T., The Extra-Terrestrial, is probably the most beloved little alien amongst children. He came to Earth to study plant life, and gets help from a little boy to “phone home.”

3. Spock (from Star Trek) – Leonard Nimoy made this emotionless Vulcan scientist and explorer an icon decades ago. I shudder to think what another actor will do to the role in the upcoming Star Trek movie.
