catches thieves just like flies

unable to simultaneously sit at my desk and think yesterday, i knocked two more movies off my queue. spider-man was about what i expected, which was enjoyable. it was a strong re-telling of the spidey origin story, and was quite faithful to the comic book's mix of heroics and personal turmoil. the royal tenenbaums was a bit of a disappointment, but i just may not have been in the right frame of mind for that sort of comedy. it was all expertly done, it just didn't spark.

i also finished listening to the commentary tracks for season one of the shield, which are great. each episode features a different group of people. shawn ryan, the creator of the series, is on almost all of the commentaries and does a fantastic job of driving the commentary with questions for the others and adding his own observations and recollections. each regular cast member is involved in the commentary for at least two episodes, and other tracks include many of the directors, the writers, and key members of the crew.
