Writing, Acting and directing is really all it really takes to make a good movie. Thanks, I don't think I'd be able to convince any of my friends to go, but I'll definitely catch it on DVD if anything.
I was sold on the movie as soon as I heard Aaron Sorkin was attached. I'm a fan of his work, though not for the same reason as most. His movies are good, yes, but I didn't watch the West Wing. Instead I came to appreciate him with Studio 60.
And Moviebob, I'm with you on the Spiderman thing. I've got no hopes for it at all. I just don't understand the reason for a reboot (other than the obvious money reason) so soon. It's not like Batman where they are going to go back an delve deeper into the origins, the first one covered that..
