    Never thought I'd be this moved by a sequel to a film I don't even like all that much. Third viewing. Seen at AMC Empire.

    I liked this enough when it first came out to buy it on DVD and watch it again, but hadn’t revisited it in a while. I recall some debate at the time around it — I guess Raimi’s going so mainstream in the intervening years prompted many to second-guess his intentions here — but seeing it on a big screen again, it becomes so clear that this is one of his best.

    Screened at Nitehawk Cinema Prospect Park, Brooklyn. 35mm.

    Umpteenth viewing. One of the greatest films ever. Decided to give the director's cut another go after multiple recent re-viewings of the theatrical cut, as well as all of Mann's other films, while writing my profile of him for Vulture.

    Here's the thing: While the theatrical cut might be "canonical," I really really love the director's cut as well. Yes, losing the cold open in the club is wrong, but other than that, there's a lot of stuff here that…

    Enjoyed this one a lot. I’m glad that Matt Reeves managed to make a genuinely Matt Reeves movie; this is definitely a superhero film from the guy who made LET ME IN. Took my son to the screening. He said the Riddler gave him nightmares. He can’t wait to see it again.
