scoring the movies

"Opening to a chorus of glowing reviews and sold-out theaters, Spider-Man 2 is accomplishing what few comic book films manage: winning over audiences not typically drawn to superheroes....'It had a real story to it,'' says Redfield, a video store manager. ''Just because it's a comic book movie doesn't mean it has to be shallow. The characters were as good as in any dramatic film.''

We ran a story this morning that said spider-man 2's wednesday's opening so far looks to be the biggest opening day ever. Viewer and critic reviews have been great.

In the story, I also learned for the first time about metacritic, which aggregates movie critics reviews into one overall score (like rotten tomotoes).
