@megagood2345: That was a great moment too. Spider-Man 2 has aged very, very well -- better than the other movies in the Raimi trilogy.

One thing I liked, and found really funny, about the Raimi trilogy is the depiction of New Yorkers taking bizarre happenings at face value, and just integrating them into the rest of their day. They see Spider-Man swinging around, and it becomes mundane.

There's a moment like that in the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, where Raphael vaults over a taxi, and the out-of town passenger is like, "What the hell was that?" and the driver just deadpans, "Sorta looked like a big turtle. In a trenchcoat. You're going to LaGuardia, right?"

Same type of non-reaction humor in Spider-Man too.

@balugha: True, that wrecked me. If I was including video games too? That would be in the Top 5

@michaelmccollor: This is a wonderfully detailed response and counterpoint to the editorial. Thank you. :)

@djfrido: Thanks for writing :) I would agree with you, except we're given the impression that Woody is going to Bo -- the movie doesn't make it clear that that his primary reason for turning around is to help lost toys -- we're left to assume that the primary reason is Bo, because it's a callback the first scene in the movie, where Bo asks Woody to go with her, and he turns her down. And this time he accepts.

Also, the focus during the post-credits seems to be on helping lonely toys find owners - I guess incidentally, that also helps kids? But the primary motivation for what they do seems to have shifted.

I think that what you're saying might have been what the filmmakers were trying to go for at some point? I like your interpretation. But if that's the case, I don't think the filmmakers did enough to make that explicit and plain for the audience

@atherworld: Oh yeah! Cinderella III was out of left field and weird, but it was entertaining, no doubt.

@Xristophoros: lol... I'm digging deeper. It's referred to by single serial number, but the serial number implies it's meant to be seen as two separate parts: Production number: 101-102/721

Thanks for reading. I appreciate it!

@Xristophoros: I counted Encounter at Farpoint as two episodes: Part I and Part II. The official site, unfortunately, offers no help on this! It lists them as two separate episodes, but lists them by serial as one episode. Memory Alpha lists it as two. But yeah, if you consider the two hour pilot a single episode, this would be 8, not 9. :)
